These cheesy cheddar almond crackers are a delicious anytime snack. They pair well with minestrone soup for an easy lunch and are an addictive cocktail party snack.
Whole grain cheddar cheese crackers
I am always looking for healthier crackers for my family. While there are several store-bought 100% whole wheat crackers available, it is hard to find cheddar crackers that are made with 100% whole grain.
These whole grain cheddar cheese crackers also contain almond flour, which not only intensifies the crispiness of the crackers, but adds some protein too!
Almond Flour Cheddar Cheese Cracker Recipe
Cheddar Cheese Crackers with Whole Wheat and Almond Flour
A healthier, gourmet version of Goldfish crackers!
- 12 ounces sharp white cheddar (grated)
- 8 tablespoons unsalted butter
- 1 cup whole wheat flour
- ½ cup almond flour
- ¼ teaspoon garlic powder
- finely ground sea salt or favorite seed or herb topping (optional)
To make dough
- Combine all ingredients in a food processor with the blade attachment, mix until dough combines into a ball, about one to two minutes
- Transfer dough a bowl, cover, and refrigerate until firm, about 20 minutes to overnight
To make crackers:
- Pre-heat oven to 350 degrees F
- Roll out dough to about 1/8 inch thickness on a sheet of parchment paper with a lightly floured rolling pin
- Use a cookie cutter or knife to cut out desired shapes
- Transfer cut crackers to a fresh piece of parchment paper for baking, leaving a ½ inch space between each cracker
- Sprinkle lightly with finely ground sea salt or topping of your choice, if using
- Bake for approximately 10 minutes, or until just starting to brown at edges
Recipe makes approximately 200 small crackers. Nutrition information is based on a 30 gram serving (about 10 crackers depending on size & shape).
These delicious crackers can be made into cute little shapes with a cookie cutter or simply cut into squares using a knife.
I like to top them with a sprinkle of ‘everything bagel’ topping (equal parts white sesame seeds, black sesame seeds, poppy seeds, dried onion, and finely ground sea salt) to make the cheddar crackers extra delicious.

These look delicious. Maybe the boys would have eaten these if they had come in a box with ducks on it! By the way I learned that 4 gm of sugar equals 1 teaspoon.....thats easy to visualize.

Ha Ha - yes, somehow I think they would have been more likely to have been eaten if they came in a cardboard box with a cartoon shape on it... marketing at its best! And yes... 4 grams of sugar is the same as one teaspoon, and it is a good visual. Thank you for reading!
