Vegan Cheese Crisps are crunchy, low-carb crackers with cheesy deliciousness–but entirely plant-based!
Plant-based Cheese Crisps
My recipe for Cheese Crisps (gluten-free and dairy-free) was one of the first on Nutritionicity. It is also the only recipe that is not entirely plant-based as it contains eggs. These crackers are so awesome that I knew I had to eventually go back and recreate the recipe to make it vegan. I get so excited about all of the new recipes that I develop that I had not yet made time to do this.
A few days ago I was really craving some of these crackers, so I took it as a sign that it was time for the redux! The new Vegan Cheese Crisps are equally as delicious as their non plant-based counterpart and even more nutritious.
Healthy Vegan and Gluten-free Cheese Crackers
The primary change to the recipe was the deletion of eggs and the addition of ground flax seed. Providing an additional source of low-carb plant protein, high fiber, and omega 3 fatty acids, combined with the walnut oil and almond flour from the original recipe, makes these crackers a must do.
I reach for these when I need that mid-day quick pick-me-up, or as a great base for a dip or spread or simply alongside a glass of red wine. They are so delicious, and you can customize them to your own taste preference. I like garlic sea salt and cayenne pepper. Yum! Yeah, I know that’s not for everybody.
Maybe you like a more herbal option — sea salt and oregano. Or maybe you need to reduce the salt in your diet and you sprinkle them with dried onions and garlic powder. The world is your oyster! I know I’m really excited about these crackers.
The best part is your body will like them, too. In addition to all of the other vitamins and minerals they bring to the table, they provide a great source of plant-based protein without loading you up with carbohydrates. These crisps are also easy to make — a good thing when you start getting requests for a double batch! Enjoy!
