Snack Sticks

Snack Sticks - Quirky Cooking I’m always looking for ideas for healthy snacks for the kids (and me!), and this is one of our favourites. They’re usually called ‘cheese sticks,’ but if you can’t have cheese, just leave it out and call them snack sticks! They’re still yummy.

Note: You can find Fine sea salt for this recipe in my online store here!

1. Preheat oven to moderate heat (180 degrees C).

2. Mix together in Thermomix, speed 5 for 20 seconds:
– 1 cup of grated tasty cheese (if using – can be grated first in Thermomix)
– 230g spelt flour (w/meal, white, or mixture)
– 1/2 t salt
– 1/2 tsp mustard powder (opt.)
– cayenne pepper to taste (opt.)
– 1/3 cup butter/ghee/olive oil
3. Barely mix in on speed 3:
– 3 T rice milk (or enough to form dough into a ball)

4. Roll out thinly on floured board or bread mat, sprinkle with:
– sesame seeds or poppy seeds,
then roll a little more to press seeds in.

5. Cut into strips (or whatever shapes you like) and place on un-greased oven trays.

6. Cook for 10-15 mins, or until lightly browned. Cool and eat!

    Thank you SO much for this recipe. Made it alongside minestrone soup and my 3 year old and 8 month old twins absolutely loved them! I didn’t use the seeds you suggested and added chia seeds and it was a winner. Thank you for sharing your wonderful recipes!

    Hi Jo
    I’m not very good at navigating all the different flours but have you got any suggestions on how to make this recipe gluten free? I’d love to try it and I’ve got a cupboard full of flours for my gluten free son, but i’m not very good at straying away from recipes and I do find the flours all have tremendous differences.
