Recently, I posted a question on facebook about toddler snacks and that I was on the lookout for toddler snack recipes.
This recipe was one that I immediately tried and came from Beth, who blogs at Caveat Emptor.
Cheese Crunch Toddler Snack
- 1 Cup Shredded Cheddar Cheese
- 1/2 Cup Flour
- 1/4 Cup Butter Softened
- 1/2 Tsp Ground Mustard
- Preheat oven to 400*.
- In a large bowl, mix all ingredients well. Then, roll them into small inch balls and place on greased cookie sheet. These will bake for about 12-15 minutes.
- This recipe made 16.

When I made these, I was able to make 24 by forming into small balls. My son thought these were very tasty, very similar to a Cheez-It, but they have a consistency that’s more suitable for smaller toddlers.
I am sold on these, as I was looking for snacks I could put in a snack cup and take on the go! These do the trick for that!
Thanks Beth for this great toddler recipe!

Mmmmm I am going to make these today for my teenagers and I!!
I just now noticed that you had posted my recipe, thanks for the shout out! I’m going to try to post more recipes soon, since I have so much time on my hands, lol.

Good luck, I can’t wait to hear how some of your freezer meals are coming along. I’m really looking to do that a lot more! It’s so much less stress!
I just made these for my kids. I’m always trying to hide veggies/fruits in the things I make because they don’t eat very many. So, I added about 1/4 cup mashed cooked carrots to half the recipe (maybe a little less, I didn’t measure). I baked them, and the half of the recipe with the hidden carrots is the best. It makes them taste lighter and not so dense as the other ones without the carrots. Next time I make these, carrots are a must for the entire batch.
My son hardly ever eats veggies, he hates them!!! So, I usually am trying to hide them into things too. I am going to try this with your adaption and see if he’ll eat them. That’s brilliant, thanks for sharing!
