4 Ingredient Sourdough Discard Cheez Its

What a snack!!!! These are just as addictive as those red boxes from the store though, so be warned. 

However if you indulge a little more than usual I’d say it’s much less harmful than multiple handfuls of the store bought box of chemicals that most snacks are these days. 

We had just had enough. Every single thing we brought into our home to have as snacks for our family was packed to the brim with ingredients we could not stand behind. So, I took matter into my own hands. 

I’ll be honest. Is it time consuming? Yes! Is it worth it….ten fold. I have confidence in what is in my children’s snack bowls now. 

Real ingredients from a real labor of love. It doesn’t have to just stop at the meals, parents of littles ones. The snacks can be sometimes the most detrimental part. We all know that they snack more SO much more than they eat a full meal. So make them ALL good. 




So let me take you through how I make these incredibly easy, super delicious and handmade handfuls of equals parts flaky and crunchy!


  • 3/4 cup sourdough discard
  • 2 tbs melted butter
  • 1/4 tsp garlic powder
  • 3/4 cup shredded cheese


  1. Preheat oven to 325° Fahrenheit. 
  2. Combine all ingredients into a bowl. 
  3. Spread evenly onto cookie sheet topped with parchment paper. Bake for 10 minutes.
  4. Remove from oven and cut with a pizza cutter or knife. Poke with fork.
  5. Bake for additional 20-30 minutes depending on how crunchy you would like them.
  6. Remove and allow to cool before storing.

The absolute best storage recommendation once cooled is broken up in to mason jars. This will keep the crunch to your cracker for several days!
