Sometimes I don’t know what would be harder, never eating gluten or eating gluten for years and then never again. For me, I ate gluten for 19 years before finding out I had coeliac disease - so I know what all the delicious gluten-filled foods taste like, but I can never eat them again.

Usually that doesn’t bother me, but sometimes new food products come out that I wish I could eat - and that’s exactly what happened when Arnott’s released their new Vegemite and Cheese Shapes.

Begin recipe testing mode.

When Jesse bought a packet of the shapes and raved about them, I sprung into action... on a mission to create my own version.... and somehow I nailed the copycat version!

Jesse decided these tasted exactly like the gluten-filled version and they were so easy to make. Better still? They’re free of questionable ingredients, egg free and made in minutes. Perfect for snacking, School lunchboxes or get-togethers with friends. 

They’re best eaten fresh so they’re super crunchy, but if you roll them out really thin (not thicker like the photos - they have softer centres and crunchy edges), they’ll stay fresh for 2-3 days at room temperature. 

Oh and if you're worried, don't be! This recipe doesn't use actual Vegemite (which is not gluten free!) - so you're safe!

So let me share the recipe with you >>

prep time: 15 minscook time: 10 minstotal time: 25 mins

ingredients:

  • 1 2/3 cup (200g) gluten free plain flour
  • 3/4 cup (90g) grated cheddar/tasty cheese (reduced fat or regular)
  • 1/2 cup (50g) grated parmesan cheese
  • 4 tbsp (80g) gluten free Vegemite alternative (see notes)
  • 1/4 cup cold water (just as much as needed to form a dough)

instructions

  1. Preheat your oven to 180C/355F.
  2. Line 2-3 baking sheets with baking paper and set aside.
  3. Lay two pieces of baking paper onto a chopping board or your bench top and set aside with a rolling pin to roll out your dough later on.
  4. In a food processor, process your flour and cheeses until your cheese is finely chopped and mix through the flour.
  5. Add your Vegemite alternative and pulse until your mix resembles breadcrumbs. 
  6. With your food processor running on low, gradually add your water, 1 teaspoon at a time,  adding just as much as needed to clump the mix together and form a dough. (If needed, add more than 1/4 cup) 
  7. Take your cracker dough out of your food processor and place onto your baking paper.
  8. Knead the dough together to form a ball and divide it in half.
  9. Roll out one half of your dough ball between two pieces of baking paper, rolling out the dough until it's about 2mm thick. The thinner you roll them, the crunchier your crackers will be. 
  10. Slice your crackers with a sharp knife and place your crackers onto your prepared baking sheet, leaving a little bit of space between each cracker.
  11. Repeat the above process with your remaining dough.
  12. Bake for 7-10 minutes or until crunchy and lightly golden. Baking times will vary depending on the thickness of your dough so keep an eye on them and take them out once they're golden. 
  13. Allow your crackers to cool completely before storing in an airtight container. These crackers will keep for 2-3 days, stored in an airtight container at room temperature.

NOTES:

I use Mighty Mite for this recipe but you could use any gluten free Vegemite alternative (Aussie Mite, Ozemite etc)

You can also make these vegan by using vegan cheese.

But tell me,
Is there a particular food you wish you could eat but can't because of allergies/living in a different country/etc? 
What is it?!
I wish I could go to a Yum Cha restaurant and eat alllll the steamed dumplings... but I think I'll have to learn how to make them myself since I don't know of any gluten free yum cha restaurants! That's my next recipe testing mission!

Oh and just in case someone decides to sue me, this recipe has nothing to do with Arnott's or Vegemite - it's just a recipe from a girl with a serious case of FOMO 😜xx
