These Vegan Peanut Butter Cheese Crackers taste just like the classic, but are totally vegan and gluten-free! Ready with just 10 ingredients and 25 minutes, they’re a healthy after school snack everyone will love.
Who didn’t enjoy Cheez-Its during childhood? For me, they were a staple addition to many after-school gatherings and field trip snacks. I haven’t purchased a bag in years, but when I got the idea to bake them at home, I knew I had to test it out for myself. Even better, I hoped to recreate the satisfying combination of orange cheese crackers and creamy peanut butter, with better-for-you ingredients.
Making your own crackers is surprisingly easy! You don’t even need a rolling pin, just a long glass that will help flatten.Â It takes just 10 minutes of prep time and 20 minutes of baking.
Ingredients in Peanut Butter Cheese Crackers
This healthier cracker is full of good for you ingredients such as:
- Oat flour (high fiber)
- Olive oil (healthy fat)
- Nutritional yeast (protein powerhouse)
- Turmeric (anti-inflammatory superfood)
Once you whip these together in the food processor and roll them out, you can slice into whatever shape you’d like. To stay true to Cheez-It style, I made little rectangles and used a toothpick to poke a hole in each. Not necessary but definitely fun!
I hope you enjoy these crackers as much as I do. They are a great healthier option for kid lunches. Please let me know in the comments or on Instagram if you give them a try! If you’re looking for another fun snack idea, I recommend my 15-Minute Rosemary Party Nuts.Print
