goldfish crackers

i always wanted to try making goldfish crackers for Clara, but never got around to it… finally, i decided to just go for it… it was so easy, i felt bad for not trying it sooner. =)

i found a homemade gold fish recipe and modified it.  For the cookie cutter, they do have ready made fish cookie cutter, but i wanted the shape to be exactly the same as goldfish crackers, so i used a cookie cutter making kit to make my own.  i have seen some pictures of people making their cookie cutters by cutting out a soda can, but i didn’t want to take a chance of cutting myself =)

Approximate Ratio 2:1
Approximate Calories 240
Approximate Carb 2.4g
Makes about 60 fishes (same size as goldfish crackers)


1oz (28g) grated sharp cheddar cheese
1T (14g) butter, cold, cut into little cubes
1T (7g) coconut flour
pinch salt
pinch onion powder


In a food processor, pulse all the ingredients until a dough forms.  Wrap the dough in a plastic wrap and chill for 30 minutes.
Place the dough in-between parchment paper and roll to about 1/8in thickness.  Cut out the shapes and transfer them to a parchment paper lined cookie sheet.

Bake at 325 for 4-5 minutes, until the edges just start to brown.  turn off the heat and let it sit in the oven for a few minutes for the crackers to crisp.

Take out of the oven and let it cool completely.

Tiffany started making keto meals for her daughter Clara in 2010, after Clara’s diagnosis with Infantile Spasm. While tough at times, managing between the strict requirements of the diet, Clara’s very sophisticated sense of taste, an older daughter whose overwhelming enthusiasm to help is only rivaled by her ability to make a much bigger mess in the process, and a dog who is determined to eat Clara’s leftovers to the detriment of her own waistline, Tiffany is grateful that her hands are being used to heal Clara. Tiffany hopes this website would be especially helpful to those working or single moms who do not have the time to design and try out new meals. Bon appetit to all the keto kids in the world!

    Help! I’ve attempted this recipe twice, and end up with melted puddles. How do the crackers keep their shape? Am I not letting the dough refrigerate long enough?

      it needs to be chilled completely not to melt. the oven has to be preheated to the temperature, so it bakes instantly instead of melting… i always use block cheddar cheese and grade it but i’m assuming shredded ones will work the same too… i hope it works out for you.

    These were completely amazing. I just cut the dough in squares and they looked like cheese nips. Jack was so excited to have crackers. Thank you!
