What you'll need

  • 3/4 cup whole wheat flour
  • 1/4 cup cornmeal
  • 1/4 cup grated Parmesan cheese
  • 2 tbsp. dehydrated vegetable flakes
  • 1 tsp. baking powder
  • 1/4 tsp. salt (optional)
  • 4 tbsp. cold reduced-fat margarine
  • 1/4 cup skim milk
  • 1 dash cayenne pepper (optional)


  • Step 1
    In a bowl, combine flour, cornmeal, Parmesan cheese, dehydrated vegetable flakes, baking powder, and salt (if using).
  • Step 2
    Using a pastry blender or two knives, cut margarine into flour mixture until it resembles fine crumbs. Make a well in the center and stir in the milk to form a stiff dough. Gather the dough into a ball and chill, wrapped in plastic wrap, for 15 minutes.
  • Step 3
    Preheat oven to 375-degrees. Roll out dough on a lightly floured work surface to 1/8-inch thickness. Cut out with small cookie cutters into animal shapes. Transfer cut out crackers to a nonstick cookie sheet. Prick surface with tines of a fork.
  • Step 4
    Bake four to five minutes, until crackers are lightly browned on the bottom. Using a wide spatula, turn cracker over and bake for another three to five minutes, until browned on the bottom. Cool on a wire rack. Store in an airtight container.
