After experiencing cheddar cheese crackers made with just one ingredient, I wondered why we mess around with flour or butter or anything else in cheese cracker recipes. These cheddar cheese crackers taste just like crunchy cheese. They are super crisp and couldn’t be any easier to make. Plus, they are gluten-free, low-carb, and Keto-friendly!

How to Make One Ingredient Cheese Crisps

Start with a bag of shredded cheddar cheese. Or, use a block of your favorite cheddar cheese and shred it. I typically use a box grater to shred the cheese, but you can also use a food processor.

Spread the cheddar cheese onto a cookie sheet fitted with a silicone mat or parchment paper. Try to not have too much overlap (like a mound of cheese), but a little is OK.

Cheddar Crackers

Set your oven to 170 F and leave the cheese in the oven overnight (about eight hours).

When you open your oven, you’ll see that the cheese has hardened and joined together into one giant cheese cracker. Wipe off any excess grease from both sides, break into cracker-sized pieces, and enjoy!

Best Tips for Making Cheddar Cheese Crisps

  • If you are grating the cheese by hand, make sure that it is cold. Warm cheese is much harder to grate.
  • Always use a silicone mat or parchment paper to keep the cheese from sticking to your baking sheet.
  • The cheese crisps can become greasy during the drying process. To help alleviate this, use a paper towel to wipe the grease off of them halfway through the baking time and then flip them over.
  • If you have a dehydrator, you can make cheese crisps in the dehydrator instead of the oven.

Cheese Crisp Variations

Cheese crisps are wonderful using so many different kinds of cheese. For example:

Also, don’t be afraid to add herbs and spices to your cheese crisps. You can make your cheddar cheese crisps spicy with a little red pepper flakes or herby with a little rosemary, thyme, and black pepper.
