Homemade Cheeze-Its SCD Style

These are actually an adaptation of Mrs. Ed's crackers. This was my first attempt at making my own crackers and I was paranoid that they would be too crispy and thin and just fall apart as soon as a spatula touched them to take them off of the cooking stone. No worries, they turned out great and are super easy to make. Here's the recipe:
2 cups Almond Flour
3 ounces mild cheddar cheese shredded
3 ounces Monterrey jack cheese shredded
1 tablespoon Salt, plus more for tops
1 Tablespoon garlic powder
1/2 tablespoon dried onion flakes
1/4 cup Water
1 TBSP Olive Oil

I used my Vitamix, but you could use a food processor. Mix the cheese and almond flour until smooth. Then add the rest of the ingredients and blend until well mixed. Take the "dough" and place between two sheets of parchment paper. Use a rolling pin and roll until the thin-ness you desire your faux Cheese-Its to be. Don't be shy about the thinness, I actually made mine a little too thick and they were not very crunchy, but still very tasty! Score into cracker sizes. Sprinkle top with salt (this is key). Bake at 325 degrees for 25 minutes. Enjoy!


  1. My wife and I used your recipe this weekend... it was amazingly delicious! I can't wait to start experimenting with different variations! Now if I can just find a reasonably priced source for almond flour, I'll be set! I live only minutes from the Bob's Red Mill factory store, but even there, it's almost 12 bucks a pound!

  2. Thank you, I'm glad you both liked it! I get my nut flours and shredded unsweetened coconut from NutsOnline.com
    Their almond flour is $6.99/ lb (and gets cheaper the more you buy in bulk) and very good quality, I highly recommend. I buy 5 pounds at a time usually.

  3. The best Almond flour and the best price is @ http://store.honeyvillegrain.com. I hope this helps :)

  4. Surely you can make your own in the Vitamix!!!
