An Unlikely Snack: Sweet Cheese Crackers In Under 2 Minutes

Microwaving cheese isn’t new to low-carbers. It can be a staple when you want a quick “cracker”.

Sweet Cheese Crackers

  • 1 slice american cheese single, folded into 4 or 8 pieces
  • sprinkle of cinnamon
  • granulated sweetener (I use Natural Mate stevia blend)

Since the cinnamon and sweetener are “to taste”, I didn’t include quantities.

Using a Silpat or parchment paper, lay out the cheese pieces, making sure to leave some space for spreading when they melt.

Sprinkle with the cinnamon and sweetener.

Microwave for 30 second intervals until they start to brown slightly. Remove from microwave and let sit for about 5 minutes to cool (you can eat them warm, but they develop more crunch when they completely cool).

That’s all there is to it. For about 70 calories, you have a quick, easy sweet treat.

I tried provolone, manchego and mozzarella cheeses, but the cheese flavor needs to be more neutral. Swiss or gouda might work for a nutty undertone.

I’m lazy, and I can’t cut out a circle to save my life, so I use Regency Wraps 9 Inch Parchment Rounds, Pack of 50 that fit my microwave turntable perfectly for anything I cook on parchment in the microwave.
