Easy-peasy vegan cheese crackers

By Sari Huhtala

If you love crackers, but want to steer clear of the wheat belly, type 2 diabetes path, then these cheese-flavoured wonders are for you. Unlike Ritz cheese crackers, which are made with 18 ingredients, including high fructose corn syrup, plus more hidden chemicals in the form of “natural flavours,” these spelt crackers have 5 simple ingredients – one of which is water.

What’s more they are simple to make in less than half an hour.

Vegan cheese crackers

  • 1 ¼ cup spelt flour
  • 1/3 cup nutritional yeast
  • ¼ cup water
  • ¼ cup olive oil
  • 1 tsp Himalayan salt

(to make garlic cheese crackers add about 1/4 tsp garlic powder to the flour mixture)

Preheat oven to 350 degrees F.

Mix spelt flour, nutritional yeast and salt in a medium size bowl. Mix water and olive oil in a measuring cup, then add to flour mixture and stir till well combined. Shape together into a ball then place on a lightly floured board and roll out to about 1/8-inch thickness. Lift onto a parchment paper covered cookie sheet. Alternatively, you can roll the dough out onto parchment paper then lift the paper onto a cookie sheet. Use the tip of a knife to cut the dough into squares by making horizontal then vertical lines. Poke a few holes into each cracker with a fork. Bake for about 20 minutes. Cool before serving. Once completely cooled, store in a covered container at room temperature.
