Make Your Own Goldfish Crackers

Homemade goldfish healthy crackers
There are only 4 ingredients in these yummy, homemade goldfish-like crackers.  In the real goldfish crackers, there are over 10 and several that I can’t even pronounce… ammonium bicarobonte? 
I don’t mind buying snacks for Zoey (16 months old yesterday!) but if I can make it and have the time, I do.  
I found this goldfish recipe on Weelicious and tried it out for the first time last weekend.  Zoey loved them and so did my husband, Mike.  

Here is what you’ll need:
  • 2 cups, grated cheddar cheese
  • 1 cup, whole wheat flour
  • 1 Tbs, salt free seasonings of your choice (I used garlic powder, onion powder and a little lemon pepper)
  • 6 Tbs, chilled unsalted butter
First, place the first three ingredients either in a bowl or a large food processor if you have it.  I only have a small one so I did this next part by hand. 
Add in your butter and cut it into your dry mixture. 
Form a ball with your hands (if you are using a food processor it will form a ball for you).
Roll out to about 1/4 of an inch thick on a floured surface.
Use small cookie cutters to make your shapes (or just cut into cracker squares).  I found these cutters at Michaels in the craft section (not the baking section).

It makes about two pans full.

Bake for approx. 9-10 minutes.  The original recipe says to bake for 15-17 minutes but at 15 minutes my first batch was burnt!  So 9 minutes was the magic number for my oven.

Be sure to check another kid-friendly snack out that Heidi whips up here, awesome zucchini bites – kids love them and we make sure they get their veggies in too!
