Print Recipe


  • 6 tablespoons butter unsalted
  • 1 ½ cups Cheddar cheese grated
  • 1 ½ cups Almond flour
  • ¼ cup Parmesan cheese grated
  • ½ teaspoon salt
  • ½ teaspoon cayenne pepper


  • Preheat the oven to 180C/350F degrees
  • Place all the ingredients in a food processor. Mix until a dough is formed.
  • Roll out the dough in between two sheets of parchment paper to as close to a rectangle as you can get. The height should be about 1 cm.
  • I used a pizza cutter to cut the dough into strips. Mine were about 8 cm long and just over 1 cm wide.
  • Gently place the strips onto a parchment paper lined baking tin.
  • Bake for 10 minutes, then gently flip the cheese strips over and bake for a further 5 minutes
  • Remove from the oven and allow to cool before handling.


Makes 20 to 25 (quantity will vary depending upon size and thickness of straws).
