Key Ingredients for Cheddar Protein Crackers.

While this is a super easy recipe, there might be a few ingredients that you don’t have or haven’t heard of. Let’s break them down! 

Nutritional yeast – This is a super fun ingredient I think more people should use. It has a super cheesy taste that you can use 100 different ways. 

Cheddar Cheese Seasoning- I used the simple popcorn seasoning, feel free to use any brand or style you want! 

Psyllium husk – A great source of dietary fibre. 
Unflavoured Whey Isolate Powder- Doesn’t that sound like a tasty ingredient, but trust me you can’t skip it! Protein whey powder comes in a ton of flavours, for a recipe like this, you’ll want it to be flavourless. Unless you like chocolate and cheddar crackers!

Tips on Nailing these Cheddar Protein Cracker.

If you’ve made crackers before, this is almost easier. All you need is a few sheets of parchment and a rolling pin. 

There is nothing worse than having a dough stick to your rolling pin, this trick can be used in a ton of other recipes, pie doughs, crackers, pastries, you name it. 

Start by cutting two large sheets of parchment. Place your dough on the sheets. Dust it with flour and add the second sheet. 

With a rolling pin, roll out your dough. The parchment acts as a barrier, keeping the dough from sticking to the rolling in. If you don’t have enough flour in between the dough and the parchment, it might stick a little.
