Dairy Free Cheese Crisps

This was a random inspiration.  I adore cheese and miss it too.

And while I love Daiya Cheese and think it is THE best cheese alternative out there, I still miss cheese!

I was craving cheese crackers and figured with a Silpat in hand, it was worth a shot.  So get ready for the EASIEST recipe you have EVER made…and for some delicious results.  I had several non-dairy sensitive people test these out, including kids, and they couldn’t believe it wasn’t cheese, these ROCK!


"Cheese" Crisps
Prep time: 
Cook time: 
Total time: 
  • Daiya Cheese Shreds (really, that is IT!)
  1. Preheat your oven to 375 degrees.
  2. Line a cookie sheet sheet with either parchment paper or a Silpat.
  3. Put about a tablespoon or so of cheese shreds in a mound, no exact science here, just however big you want them to be.
  4. Push any lonely shreds back to the nearest mound so they can melt together, the cheese does not spread hardly at all.
  5. Bake in a preheated oven for 10-13 minutes until golden brown.
  6. Let cool completely to harden into crisps and enjoy!

  1. Awesome! I’m so happy that I don’t have to go with an “alternative”, but if I ever do, you can bet I’ll be going this route. They looks awesome. Now you just need some bean salsa for scooping 😉

    • For sure heather, real cheese is a better choice both in taste AND it is less processed. I am a huge cheese fan…the stringer. stinkier, the better! Luckily we have been trying sheep and goats milk again with some success!

    Hi there, I’m just curious, do you think that regular Daiya tastes like cheese as well (I mean un-toasted)? I agree that Daiya may be the closest I have come to finding an alternative, but my son hates it! Still looking… sigh!

    • NO Yvonne…I don’t! BUT it is the closest out there I have tried. The only way we use it is melted into things, or this cheese crisps! I have however made some really good cashew cheese….it tastes like Rondole!

    I just made these with the mozzarella flavored Daiya. I needed to use what was left in the bag, so this was perfect! To the bag, I added nutritional yeast, chili powder, cumin, garlic powder, onion powder, and turmeric and gave it a good shake. They turned out really yummy! I threw them on top of my lunch as a crunchy, savory addition. Thanks for the idea!
