Once again it's time for The Secret Recipe Club. This month I was assigned Burnt Apple written by Traci. Traci describes herself as a "master recipe manipulator"...she can make any recipe healthier and still taste great...I love the sound of that!
After browsing Traci's blog I decided to make her Vegan Cheese Crackers. Crackers are always a hit with my boys. These crackers use nutritional yeast which I've always been curious about. I had used it in a mac and cheese recipe before but wasn't impressed with the results. But the nutritional yeast works much better in these crackers. Traci says that these are just like Cheez-Its and Goldfish Crackers. I didn't think they tasted like Goldfish Crackers and I've never had Cheez-Its before...not sure it we even get them in Canada...But these were definitely a great cheezy cracker. They boys enjoyed them and loved how they were different shapes. Thank you Traci for sharing this recipe!
Vegan Cheezy Crackers
Adapted from Burnt Apple
1 cup all-purpose flour
2 tbsp nutritional yeast
1/4 tsp onion powder
1/8 tsp turmeric
1/2 tsp sea salt
3-4 twists of freshly ground black pepper
5 tbsp vegan margarine
3 tbsp cold water
Preheat oven to 375 F. Line 2 baking sheets with parchment paper.
In a food processor add all-purpose flour, nutritional yeast, onion powder, turmeric, salt and black pepper. Process till combined.
Add the margarine and pulse until dough is crumbly. With the food processor running slowly add the water through the feed tube just until combined. Divide dough into 2 pieces.
On a lightly floured surface roll out one piece of dough to 1/8 inch thick and cut out shapes. Re-roll any scrapes to make more shapes. Place shapes on prepared baking sheet and bake 8-10 minutes or until golden. While baking repeat with second piece of dough.
Allow to cool and store in an airtight container.
