The Air Fryer Hack That Transforms Vegan Cheese Into Homemade Cheez-Its
By David Tran
With an addictively cheesy taste and crispy crunch — not to mention an extraordinary 11-month shelf life — Cheez-Its are a great thing to grab whenever a snack craving strikes. However, if you want to skip the milk, you can actually whip up some easy vegan Cheez-Its in the air fryer.
Making vegan Cheez-Its is simple, according to TikTok user @claredod, a home cook with more than 15,000 followers. In the vegan Cheez-Its video, which is their most popular video, Clare takes 365 Whole Foods Market vegan cheddar cheese (though any brand can work), cuts it into slices, and pokes a hole in the middle of each piece.
Clare places the slices into the air fryer for less than 10 minutes, and the results are crispy, puffed vegan cheese crackers that resemble the beloved Cheez-Its. "That's...it?" commented one mind-blown viewer, while another complimented @claredodo: "You're actually a genius."
