Crispy Crackers

Heat oven to 300°F. In a food processor, pulse 6 oz 2% reduced-fat sharp Cheddar + 3 large egg whites until smooth. Add ¼ cup white-whole-wheat flour. Pulse until the mixture becomes thick.

Remove top piece of parchment; cut into grid of 1-in. squares. Slide parchment onto baking sheet; bake until crackers are deep orange and crisp, 20 to 35 minutes.

Body Booster: Sharp Cheddar is a great protein source and helps you feel full longer. And this snack is only 150 calories for 27 crackers.
