Ingredients

Instructions

  1. In the bowl of a food processor, combine almond flour, coconut flour, arrowroot starch, xanthan gum, garlic powder and salt. Pulse a few times to combine.
  2. Sprinkle butter over almond flour mixture and pulse until it resembles fine crumbs.
  3. With processor running on low, add water through feeding tube 1 tablespoon at a time until dough clumps together.
  4. Form into a flat disc and cover with plastic wrap. Chill 30 minutes.
  5. Preheat oven to 300F and line a large baking sheet with parchment paper.
  6. Take about 1 tablespoon of dough and roll it between your palms into a cigar shape. Continue to roll gently on a piece of parchment or a silicon baking mat into a long thin stick, less than half an inch thick and 7 or 8 inches long (if it breaks at any point, you can easily press it back together). Sprinkle with a few teaspoons of grated cheddar, gently pressing the cheese into the stick to adhere. Transfer to prepared baking sheet. Repeat with remaining dough and cheese.
  7. Bake 25 to 30 minutes, until firm and cheese is lightly browned. Remove from oven and let cool completely to allow them to get crispy as they cool.

About the Author:

Hello and thanks for popping by! My name is Kim and I love to cook low carbs recipes, desserts, salads and soups. I am always on the hunt for new recipes to make over. My husband Paul was diagnosed with slow onset Type 1 diabetes (LADA) over 5 years ago so we were forced to change the way we did things when it came to cooking. We have always been a healthy and active family. I play soccer, we both run 3-4 times per week and walk 5km most week days after dinner. Our kids play soccer and rugby and are no strangers to a healthy lifestyle. Spending time in the kitchen is always time well spent in my humble opinion and I love to share my cooking successes with you here. There may be hiccups along the way but we keep going and I hope our passion for food translates to your kitchen. Feel free to explore and remember to check us out on Face Book, Twitter, Instagram and Flickr.
