Recipe: Spent Grain Cheddar Crackers

For us when it comes to snacks, the only thing as good as cheese and crackers is cheese IN crackers! Because they never need the aid of a topping or creamy spread (although that has never stopped us from topping them as well), savory crackers make for great appetizers and to-go snacks.

The spent grain in these crackers lends a very pleasant nuttiness to compliment the sharp cheddar cheese, creating what can only be described as the love child of a Goldfish and a Cheez-It. Need we say more?




  • 1/4 cup Spent Grain Flour
  • 1 1/2 cups sharp cheddar, grated
  • 2 tablespoons butter
  • 1/2 cup all purpose flour
  • 1/8 teaspoon salt


  1. Preheat oven to 350F.
  2. In a food processor combine all ingredients and pulse until dough forms into a ball.
  3. On a floured surface roll out dough to 1/8 inch thickness.
  4. Using a cookie cutter or sharp knife cut into desired cracker shape and size.
  5. Bake 10-12 minutes. Let cool. Enjoy!
