Healthy Cheese Crackers

Warning: These cheese crackers are highly addictive. Please try these at your own risk, because no matter how much you make, they have a tendency to disappear.

Yes, I mean it. So, if making for guests or for taking with you while travelling, I suggest that you make when kids are not around.

Healthy Cheese Crackers

 

For Blogging Marathon, while thinking of the food for kids travels theme, I knew I had to include these. As Ragi Chocolate Muffins was my first choice, something cheesy followed next. But what cheesy? And then I decided on Cheesy crackers.

Though to be honest, these are not bakery-style cheese lings, but still, something was the same.

The difference is mainly because of the flour, I think. As I have used whole wheat flour and then these are homemade, hand-cut and baked. So, you cant expect them to be like the machine cut ones but forget that part, and you have very healthy, very delicious, guilt-free cheese crackers.

 

Easy Recipe

This recipe of mine is a very simple recipe with very few ingredients. Only 3 ingredients, flour, cheese and milk, that’s it. In addition, you have flavourings, which are completely optional. Besides this, no oil or butter, no leavening agents like baking powder or baking soda is used. As there is no oil, I was sceptical, whether it would be crunchy or not, but all fears faded away slowly. They were perfectly crunchy. A few hours later, my son Siddharth, at the gate only announced that he could smell that something had been baked/cooked.

Since making it so small may be a tedious task especially if making in large quantity therefore you can make these slightly big also. The big ones are also equally crunchy.

Baking in Air Fryer

  1. To bake in the air fryer, preheat it at 180 degrees for 5 minutes.
  2. Place the strips/crackers in the air fryer basket. Reduce the temperature to 160 degrees and bake for 7 to 8 minutes till golden brown.
  3. When baking in an air fryer, keep the crackers slightly big and thick otherwise they tend to curl because of the rapid gush of air inside it.

Ingredients
  

My Cup measures 240 ml

  • 100 g Processed Cheese
  • 1/2 Cup Milk
  • 3/4 Cup Wheat Flour
  • 1/4 Cup Semolina Fine
  • 1/2 tsp Salt
  • 1/2 tsp Garlic Powder Optional
  • 1/2 tsp Italian Seasoning Or Oregano Optional
  • 1/4 tsp Chilli Flakes Optional

Instructions
 

  • Take processed cheese and milk in the grinder and make a fine paste.
  • Take whole wheat flour, semolina, salt, Italian seasoning, garlic powder and chilli flakes in a big bowl. Whisk everything nicely.
  • Add the cheese mix into this flour mix and gather into a dough. Just gather without kneading it. If need be, add little milk. But make a soft dough. Soft, because, semolina will swell and the dough will get stiff
  • Cover the dough and leave it covered for 15 to 20 minutes. You can leave it longer also, say for an hour or so.
  • Divide the dough into 2 or 3 parts.
  • Start preheating the oven. Preheat it at 180 degrees for 15 minutes. Do not heat the baking tray. Line the baking tray with a parchment paper.
  • Keeping the dough between plastic sheets, roll it thinly. But do not make it too thin otherwise they do not puff up.
  • Trim the edges and make cuts using a pizza cutter. Mix the leftovers in the remaining dough.
  • Keep these strips in the baking tray and start baking. No need to leave gap between the crackers as they do not spread rather they puff up.
  • For the initial 10 minutes bake at 180 degrees and thereafter reduce the temperature to 170 degrees. Also, at this time, flip the crackers. As by now, the bottom gets golden brown whereas the top remains white only. So, for better taste and looks, flip it.
  • Another 2 to 3 minutes and they are ready. Take out and let them cool down on a wire rack.
  • When completely cool, fill in an airtight container.

Baking In Airfryer

  • To bake in airfryer, preheat it at 180 degrees for 5 minutes.
  • Place the strips/crackers in the airfryer basket. Reduce the temperature to 160 degrees and bake for 7 to 8 minutes till golden brown.
  • When baking in airfryer, keep the crackers slightly big and thick otherwise they tend to curl because of the rapid gush of air inside it.

Notes

  1. There is no baking powder/soda, oil, butter etc but these crackers turn out super crunchy.
  2. A very little salt is added as cheese already has salt.
  3. I have used Amul processed cheese.
  4. In case the dough becomes loose add little flour, either wheat flour or semolina.
  5. Roll out the dough as thinly as possible.
  6. Keep the size of crackers uniform as far as possible otherwise, it leads to uneven baking.
  7. Do not heat the baking tray while preheating the oven.

  1. With just three ingredients the crackers look fantastic. Wheat flour makes it so much healthy and it is such an amazing guilt free snack to enjoy with some coffee.

  2. Homemade snacks is always better as we know exactly what went into it. Love these mini cheese bites, they look easy to make and absolutely delicious too.

  3. Healthy homemade cheese crackers with wheat flour surely can be an addictive snack.. Love the idea of melting cheese and adding it to the flour. Very nice share,

  4. This reminded me of cheeslings which we use to have when we were kids. What an addictive snack you have made and the fact that it is baked and made from whole wheat flour. Bookmarking this.

  5. Hi..I’m definitely making this. Bookmarked it. Just one question. Instead of grinding the cheese & milk, can we melt the cheese on a double boiler & add milk separately later?
