gluten free cheddar crackers

Do any of you remember your favorite childhood snack?  And are unable to enjoy it now that you are gluten free??  Well I surely do… the perfectly salted, crunchy, couldn’t get enough of,  Cheez-It.  Well after several attempts, here is my easy gf version of the Cheez-It.  They are so good, I have to hide them from my children or they are gone instantly!  You can try it with any of your favorite cheddars, I like to keep these classic with sharp cheddar. They keep well for up to a week in a tightly sealed container.

  • Can you supply us with some cracker alternatives that do not have egg, almond flour, or coconut flour? Beyond the gluten issue, our daughter has allergies to all these which means we can’t use many of these recipes…

    • Stacey,

      Unfortunately I do not have any recipes that fit your daughters dietary restrictions yet. I am working on expanding the types of ingredients in my recipes. What can she tolerate?

      • Nicola,
        I would think the pecan flour would work just fine, but since I haven’t tried it personally, I can’t guarantee. As far as the egg replacer goes, I haven’t used them either. Sounds like a good cooking experiment. Be sure to let us know if those substitutions work out!

  • ok Michelle it is time for me to give you MEGA praise! I’m not kidding. I literally thank God for your blog.
    My daughter has 4 auto immune disease all what we believe were cause by her total grain intolerance. So I have had to become a grain-free detective.
    Through you site, I have had a chance to finally take a breath and make wonderful dinners, breakfasts, snacks and most of all cakes, cookies and NOW brownies!! AND you are teaching me new words like “parchment paper” (i’m not kidding)! and challenging me to find coconut flour!
    Cooking has NEVER been my gift. But your recipes are so easy and simple and my 12 year old and my husband loves them – and I, well I can actually create what you have researched and tested and then place it on the table before them. Yeah!
    All I can say is you TOTALLY ROCK! and thank you so much to being faithful to this blog. You are making a difference in my life every day.
    Sweetest blessings to you and your family.

  • These cheese crackers are so amazing! Just the fix I need when I want a cheesy cracker for my hot tomato soup or my cold tuna salad. These are crispy, rich, satisfying and best of all SO EASY and quick to make! They really do remind me of Cheez-Its! I like the idea of being grain free and try to do so as much as I can. I have to admit that without your recipes, Michelle, I wouldn’t even considered it!! I see your recipes and I know that it’s easy to follow through! You make restricted diets feel a lot less, well……restrictive. I don’t feel deprived because I know that salty/savory/sweet, I can log on to Gluten Free Fix and get a fantastic and healthy fix!

  • Thank you!!!!!! My Daughter is sooooo EXCITED to try More and More of your Gluten-Free Yummies …….You have changed are life!!! I feel Like she can start to enjot food again.

  • Michelle,
    of all the recipes I’ve found online yours are by far the best! I can’t thank you enough for taking your time to do this blog and share your recipes with the world. As a 17 year old girl going on one year with celiac disease I have struggled to find recipes that fit my younger tastebuds ;) Not only that but I do all the cooking and shopping on my own so I don’t have a large budget but your recipes have simple ingredients and instructions that don’t break the bank or takes hours to make! thank you SO much I am so glad you have found relief with the gluten free diet, i sure have!

    • Thank you Amanda! Wow, I am so impressed that you are doing all of this alone as a teenager, major props!

  • These crackers are amazing Michelle. We are on a grain free diet as well and my kids definitely miss the crackers. They love these! Thank you so much for sharing! I can’t wait to try some of your other recipes!

  • Excellent recipe. Enjoyed by all 4 of us:) I added a tsp of spinach powder which we like.
    You definitely have to roll it to 1/8 of an inch, but even if you do not manage (I was in a hurry) it works just to leave those thicker ones in a little longer.
