Homemade Cheese Crisps

I love cheese. I eat it probably every date. And classic cheddar cheese is one of my all-time favorites to eat. If you are a fan of cheese like me, you have got to try these homemade cheese crisps or keto cheez-its!

Not only are they keto-friendly but these homemade cheese crisps are also gluten-free. They are such an easy cheese snack to make and they actually taste kinda like actual cheez-its.

If I can do it, you can do it. Let’s get baking!


  • 2 oz Cheese – Use Cheddar or a cheddar jack blend. Blocks or the pre-sliced sandwich size.
  • Pinch of salt


  1. Preheat the oven to 275F/135C.

  1. Slice the cheese into small squares about 1x1 inch and around 1/8th of an inch thick.

  2. Now line a sheet pan with parchment paper and place the cheese squares about an inch and a half apart.

  1. Poke holes if you want in the middle with a straw. But, honestly, that doesn't matter as the cheese melts the hole gets filled in anyways, haha.

  2. Next, sprinkle on a tiny bit of salt. Or you can leave the salt off entirely.

  1. Bake the cheese in the oven, middle rack, for 20 to 25 minutes until it melts and gets a little brown around the edges.

  2. Let them cool for about 5 minutes before eating them. Enjoy!
