4 Ingredient Healthy Crackers

Written by COA Nutrition Team On June 26, 2020

4 Ingredient Cheesy Carrot Crackers – These homemade crackers, made with only 4 real food ingredients, are the perfect healthy snack for kids!

INGREDIENTS

  • 1 ½ cup grated carrot
  • ½ cup water
  • ½ cup cheddar cheese, shredded
  • 2 large eggs
  • 1 cup flour, whole wheat

DIRECTIONS

  1. Preheat oven to 350° F.
  2. Mix the grated carrot and water in a microwave safe bowl. Cover and cook in high for 3 minutes.
  3. Drain the carrots and then use a clean cloth to squeeze out the excess liquid.
  4. Put the carrots, cheese and eggs in a food processor and pulse until well blended. You can process them more or less, depending on the texture you want. The more you do, they less obvious the carrot will be.
  5. Add the flour ¼ cup at a time, pulsing in-between, just until you reach a dough consistency. You don’t want it to be too sticky, or too dry.
  6. Lightly flour your work surface, roll the dough to ¼-inch-thick and cut to desired shapes. I just used a pizza cutter to cut long strips and then small 1-inch squares.
  7. Put shapes on a cookie sheet covered with parchment paper or a silicone baking mat. Sprinkle with a little course sea salt (optional).
  8. Bake for 15-20 minutes or until they are crispy and slightly brown on the edges.
  9. Store leftovers in an airtight container.

Tips of the Month MOBILE

Planning Ahead Tip of the Month

Build time-saving habits

There are plenty of little habits you can build while cooking that will make you more efficient. For example, rinse prep dishes as you go to make washing them easier or move them into the dishwasher as you’re working. You can also create a scrap bag or bowl where you discard skins, odd bits, or anything else you might throw away while cooking – this way you don’t have to lose your flow walking over to the trash can. A huge time-saver: prep bowls. Measure out your ingredients beforehand and set them out in prep bowls. That way, once it’s time to use them, you can just grab the bowl and pour.
