Super Easy Low-Carb Crackers
These crispy, cheesy low-carb crackers provide the perfect satisfying crunch. Eat them by the handful completely guilt-free!
If you are looking for a delicious and healthy snack that doesn’t involve an excess of carbs, you’re in the right place! In this blog post, we will be showing you how to make homemade cheese crackers that are both low in carbs and taste absolutely amazing.
These keto crackers are perfect for people who are trying to eat healthier overall. They have wholesome ingredients that will keep your blood sugar in check while also making your tastebuds totally happy. So let’s get started!
You’ll only need a few ingredients to whip up these almond flour crackers:
- Cheddar cheese—We love the flavor cheddar gives these crackers, but you can switch it out for the cheese flavor of your choice. Parmesan cheese or mozzarella cheese both work well.
- Almond flour—almond flour makes up the base of this keto cracker recipe. It’s gluten-free and low carb, making it the perfect addition.
- Cream cheese—make sure to choose the full fat variety with no additives.
- Sea salt
STEP 1: Preheat oven to 425ºF. Microwave cheddar cheese, cream cheese and almond flour in a microwave-safe bowl for 45 seconds.
STEP 2: Stir well. If ingredients are not combining well, you can microwave for 15-second increments.
STEP 3: Allow your cheese mixture to cool for 2 minutes, then add the egg and salt and mix well into a ball.
STEP 4: Place the ball of dough between 2 pieces of parchment paper and use a rolling pin to roll as thin as possible. The thinner the dough, the crispier the cracker.
STEP 5: Cut dough into cracker-sized pieces (1 inch by 1 inch) using a sharp knife or pizza cutter.
STEP 6: Bake for 5-7 minutes, then flip and bake evenly for another 5-7 minutes.
Tip: Thinner crackers will bake more quickly than thicker crackers, so keep a close eye on them.
The key to keeping these crackers fresh and tasty is proper storage. You should store them in an airtight container, either at room temperature or in the refrigerator.
If you choose to refrigerate them, they will last longer—up to two weeks! Otherwise, they can be enjoyed at room temperature for 3-5 days.
Want to make your low-carb crackers a little more interesting? Feel free to add some different spices! We love garlic, rosemary and thyme in this recipe.
You could also use a ½ teaspoon of Everything but the Bagel seasoning. Sesame seeds and garlic powder add some zest to these crackers as well.
You can also switch up the type of cheese you use for these low-carb keto crackers. While cheddar crackers are our favorite, we have enjoyed these made with a 50/50 mix of Parmesan cheese and cheddar, or pepper jack and cheddar for extra zest.

These sound yummy! But how much is a serving? (How much for the calculation of 1.9G of carbs?)
I just fixed this in the recipe, but the recipe has 18 servings!
Yay! Salty, crunchy and cheesy!
How many crackers is a serving???
This will depend on how big or small you cut the crackers. There are 18 servings, so divide your total number of crackers by 18!
These sound great, but I don’t eat cheddar cheese. Do you have a suggestion on what I can substitute the cheddar cheese for?
You can use any kind of cheese you like! Just watch the carb count.
I would like to use coconut flour instead of almond flour for this recipe. My son is allergic to tree nuts but not coconut. I heard you are supposed to use 1/4 amt of coconut flour that a recipe called for almond flour. Also, it said for every 1/4 cup of coconut flour add 1 egg.
Not sure if this will work for this recipe?
1 cup almond flour = 1/4 cup coconut flour + 1 egg
It seems like this is a lot less flour. Will they turn out?
Try this recipe with 1/2 a cup of coconut flour and 2 tablespoons of butter. I don’t think you’ll need an extra egg since you want them to be crispy. It does seem like less flour, so 1/2 a cup without the extra egg should work. This will affect how many macros the crackers have, so I would put your recipe into My Fitness Pal or Lose It app to calculate the new macros.
