How to Make Dairy-Free Cheez-Its/Goldfish

by Maureen Uebelhoer

My daughter loves Goldfish but found out recently that like me she can't have dairy anymore due to it making her eczema flare. This recipe was adapted from the one on Smitten Kitchen.


  • 6 Ounces Daiya Cheddar Style Shreds
  • 4 Tablespoons Earth Balance Sticks
  • ¼ Cups All Purpose Flour
  • ½ Cups Whole Wheat Flour
  • ¼ Teaspoons table salt
  • 1 Tablespoon ground flax meal
  • Instructions

    Step 1

    Preheat oven to 350* & put all ingredients into food processor.

    Step 2

    Combine all ingredients, running food processor until the dough starts to form a ball or pull away from sides of the dish.

    Step 3

    Put dough ball onto lightly floured surface. Make sure you flour the rolling pin well to because if you don't the dough will stick when you roll it out.

    Step 4

    Roll out to around an 1/8" thick. Cut dough w/ a bench scraper/ pizza scraper/ or floured mini cookie cutter.

    Step 5

    Gently transfer crackers to an ungreased cookie sheet covered w/ a silicone mat or parchment paper & bake for 12-15 mins or until barely browned.

    Step 6

    Gabi my new goldfish are cooking & they smell like mac & cheesie!!

    Step 7

    Remove from oven & let cool for 15 mins.

    Step 8

    Once cool transfer to airtight container.
