I am trying to find some other snacks to make other than having mixed nuts all the time. So I went on the search for gluten free homemade cracker recipes, lots and lots came up and it was hard to know what to try so I thought I’d go for a cheese and chive one and I saw an awesome idea for a cracker thats low carb using almond meal and sesame seeds, really yummy….that will follow later in a new post. These were a big hit with the kids but I found they totally lost shape due to the amount of cheese in it and slightly greasy but not too bad once cooled down but taste wise they are pretty darn good. You can either sprinkle the chives ontop or mix them in the batter, either way is fine. Please asses your own dietary requirements to how much block cheese you can have, block cheese is virtually lactose free so they should be suitable on a low fodmap diet.
Double Cheese & Chive Crackers
Makes about 32
250g grated tasty low fat cheese
50g grated Parmesan cheese
90g unsalted butter, cold and chopped
1/2 cup brown rice flour
1/4 cup tapioca (Arrowroot) flour
1/4 cup potato flour
Pinch of pepper
1 Tbl cold water
2-3 tbsp chopped fresh chives
sea salt (optional)
Preheat oven to 160 degrees.
Incorporate all ingredients (apart from chives and salt) in a food processor until it resembles fine bread crumbs, while mixing pour in water until a dough forms. Pour onto bench and for into 2 balls and chill for 30 minutes (or you may find the dough is easy to work with so may not need it) roll out dough to 1/2 cm or so thick and using round cookie cutter cut out circles and place on a baking tray lined with grease proof paper. Sprinkle with chives and press them a little onto the tops of the crackers and sprinkle with a tiny bit of salt on each one. (or when forming the dough on the bench add the chives then and mix them in when forming the ball) They will spread a tiny bit so make sure you leave a little room.
Place in oven for about 15 minutes until golden and leave on baking tray to cool 10 minutes before transfering to wire rack. Store in an airtight container.
