Main Ingredients

All ingredients used in this Keto Crackers recipe.

Cheese – The cheese in this Keto Crackers recipe is used for flavor. I like an aged orange cheddar to make my crackers taste like Keto cheese-its. Go ahead and try different cheeses like havarti, gouda, parmesan cheese or monterey jack!

Extra Toppings – Use nothing but coarse sea salt for crackers that taste just like ‘keto cheese-its’, or try out some other herbs and spices for fun. I like to swap out the cheddar for aged white cheddar, then top the crackers with rosemary.

Another delicious option is to top the Keto Cheese Crackers with ‘everything but the bagel seasoning’! But your options are endless. Some of our other favorite seasoings you could use include:

  • Chia seeds
  • Sunflower seeds
  • Flax seeds
  • Ranch seasoning
  • Italian seasoning
  • Parmesan cheese

How To Make Keto Crackers

Start by heating your oven to 300°. Cut a large sheet of parchment paper the size of a baking sheet and spray with avocado or olive oil. Melt the butter and set aside.

In a medium or small bowl combine almond flour with the baking powder, 1/4 tsp sea salt and garlic powder, then mix well. Grate the cheddar cheese, mix into the flour, then knead in an egg white and the melted butter until fully combined.

If you have a food processor you can mix all the ingredients in there to make the dough faster.

Dump the cracker dough onto the oiled sheets of parchment paper, then spray some oil onto another piece parchment (or wax paper) and place over the dough. Use a rolling pin to roll out into a rectangle. Roll out until the dough is super thin, about 3-4mm in thickness.

You’ll probably end up with an oval, but can cut out a rectangle and patch to form a larger rectangle with the extra dough. The rectangle should roll out to be about 20 cms by 30 cms.

Cracker dough rolled out into a rectangle.

Remove and discard the top piece of parchment paper (or wax paper). Cut the into squares, without separating the crackers, using either a knife or pizza cutter, I usually use a fondant cutter or dough scraper. You should get 4 rows by 6 rows, so 24 crackers. Again, do not separate the crackers.

Sprinkle the surface with the extra sea salt, rosemary, ‘everything but the bagel seasoning’ or anything else you might like. *see note 3 in the recipe for ‘everything but the bagel seasoning’ recipe.

Crackers are on a baking sheet, sprinkled with everything but the bagel seasoning, and ready to be baked.

Slide the parchment paper onto a baking sheet and bake on the middle rack, in the preheated oven, for 10 minutes. Remove the crackers from the oven and slice along the cut edges. Separate the crackers, flip them over and space them out evenly throughout the baking sheet.

Crackers are halfway baked and have just been cut and flipped.

Bake for 5-8 minutes until lightly golden brown, then cool completely on a cooling rack. Store in an airtight container at room temperature. These keto cracker beauties will be in their prime for up to 7 days. For the full recipe make sure to view the recipe card at the bottom of the page.

Expert Tips

  1. This dough is super sticky! This is why we cover the dough with an oiled piece of parchment paper or wax paper before rolling out with a rolling pin.
  2. You can continue to roll out the dough, trim it and patch it, as many times as it takes until you are fully satisfied with your rectangle. Aim for a rectangle that is roughly 20 cms X 30 cms.
  3. After the dough has been cut into squares, do not try to separate them at this point! They will just mush on you.
  4. Some of the crackers will bake faster than others, depending on how thick the dough was in certain areas. Check for doneness after 5 minutes into the second bake time and remove the crackers that are nice and golden. Return the under baked crackers to the oven and bake for an additional 3-5 minutes, or until they are golden brown.

    So tasty! To keep them from falling apart with just a touch, I reduced the cheese by half. Also, the longer they bake, the crunchier they become. Definitely making these again!

  2. These crackers taste good, and they are nice and light, but the dough is hellish to work with, and you have to be super careful when cutting them and flipping them after the first bake. That took several minutes. They are also WAY too fragile to dip into anything without crumbling, and you can’t spread anything on them.

    • That’s odd, something must have gone wrong with your dough. I make these all the time, the dough should not be difficult to work with, and the crackers should not be crumbly at all.

  3. Weird to have all of the ingredients listed in cups and tablespoons (Imperial), and then have the cracker thickness in millimeters (Metric).
    Looks like a good recipe, though.

  4. 5 stars
    I was skeptical about making crackers, but these were amazing! Super easy to make, and taste just like regular crackers. I think I’ll use a little less salt next time (cheese is already salty), but other than that, perfect! I’m going to make a double or triple batch next time.

  5. 5 stars
    delicious, stayed crunchy, light, buttery, salty, crispy – just what i like

  6. These hit the spot for me. Light and crisp. I put Everything bagel seasoning and rosemary and so delicious!

  7. 5 stars
    Wow~~!! Thanks for sharing. By far, this has been the best recipe! ^___^ I am gonna try this out!

  8. Those look amazing!

  9. Oh my, these are really good, u can taste the almond flour, but once u get past that initial taste, they are wonderful
    I didn’t have enough patience to keep molding until rectangular so some are thicker than others. I topped with dried parsley and pink salt on one half and garlic ranch on the other. As soon as Iopened the oven I was in heaven, and I cheated and had a couple on the end. Oh my goodness so good.

  10. I am allergic to almonds…could I sub the almond flour for coconut flour?

    • I have never tried with coconut flour. I know that you need less coconut flour and more eggs when subbing but unfortunately I don’t know what the ratio would be. Sorry I wish I could be helpful!

  11. Your nutrition says 1.7 net carbs per serving. How many crackers make up 1 serving…….just one cracker? Thanks

  12. You totally had me at lo-carb! What a great low carb party food. Love how easy the recipe sounds and you totally nailed it. I wish I could eat a few right now!

  13. 5 stars
    I am so loving these low carb cheese crackers, I need to find out where can I find gray salt. This recipe is a keeper.

  14. Crispy cheese crackers are my downfall — I cannot stop eating them once I open a box. I love that these are a healthier twist… can’t wait to give them a try!

  15. 5 stars
    A) I really love making crackers from scratch but haven’t tried adding cheese so thumbs up! Definitely trying that! B) Love gray salt but forget to use it. But now I know what I’m making for the Super Bowl party. Thanks!

  16. Omg – what a perfect vessel for literally anything! Cheesy crackers that are also low carb?! Girl, you nailed it. I would love to eat these with spinach and artichoke dip or prosciutto!
