Salty, crunchy, cheesy and irresistible, these Low Carb Crackers with Rosemary and Aged Cheddar are ridiculously delicious!

I LOVE SNACKS!

Let’s start with that.

I’m a snacky-kinda-lady and feel like a snack ain’t a snack without a good crunch and salty burst. Don’t get me wrong, I’ve got nothing against veggies and Ranch Dressing or cold cuts and cheese, but for the most part, I need the crunch.

I’ve been working on a few different almonds recipes lately, but I’m also super into creating different varieties of low carb crackers. It all started with Crunchy Low Carb Cheese Crackers and I’ve been on fire ever since. I love to create new flavours like these rosemary and aged cheddar crackers and another recipe I’ll have coming your way involving cranberry and pumpkin seeds.

I hope you love these delicious Crunchy Low Carb Crackers with Rosemary and Aged Cheddar as much as I do!

What are low carb crackers

These delicious Crunchy Low Carb Crackers with Rosemary and Aged Cheddar are made with an almond flour base.

You’ll also need aged white cheddar, baking powder, garlic powder, dried rosemary, salt, butter and an egg white.

How to make low carb crackers

These crackers take no time to create. Here’s how to do it:

Make the dough

You can start by heating your oven to 300°. I like to have my station all prepped, so go ahead and find a baking sheet with one piece of parchment and another piece of wax paper, all cut to the size of your baking sheet.

Lay the parchment paper on your work station and spray it with olive or avocado oil. You can also spray one side of the wax paper as well.

Melt some butter and set it aside to cool.

In a medium bowl combine almond flour with baking powder, coarse salt and rosemary. Using a whisk, mix well and break up all the clumps of almond flour.

Shred some aged white cheddar using the small side of a cheese grater or a zester, then mix into the almond flour. Add the melted butter, an egg white and mix well. It will be very wet/sticky.

Dump the contents onto the center of the oiled parchment paper, then cover the dough with the sprayed side of the wax paper.

Form the crackers

Use a rolling pin to the roll the dough out in between the two sheets as even as possible. It’s basically impossible to roll into a rectangle, but aim for a rectangle and you will get an oval.

The wax paper can now be removed. Trim the edges of the oval and patch the corners to create a perfect rectangle. The wax paper can be placed over the crackers again in case you want to roll it out a but more.

Aim for a rectangle that is roughly 20cms x 30cms.

Once you have your rectangle it’s time to build the crackers.

Using a knife, pizza cutter or fondant scraper, ( I prefer the fondant scraper) create the lines to divide the crackers. Place the mark gently; don’t worry about going all the way through at this point as you won’t be seperating the crackers until halfway through the baking time.

You should get 4 x 6 crackers for a total of 24. Sprinkle with dried rosemary and coarse sea salt.

If you like, take a meat mallet to make the decorative indentations, or leave as it.

Bake those beauties!

Slide the parchment paper onto the baking sheet and bake in the center of the oven for 10-12 minutes. Be sure the bottom of the crackers have turned a golden brown.

Slice the crackers with a sharp knife then flip each cracker over. I like to place the outside crackers on the inside, and the inside on the outside so that they bake more evenly.

Bake for an additional 5-8 minutes until the crackers are golden brown. If some are ready before others, remove them and continue to bake for a couple of minutes at a time to ensure they are all perfectly golden.

Cool and enjoy!

Tips and Tricks

Here are some tips and tricks I’ve thrown together after making these so many times!

  • Fondant scrapers are amazing to shape the crackers! They are almost long enough to reach across the rectangle so you can make them nice and even.
  • There’s a good possibility your crackers are going to have a different thickness each time you bake them, so each time the baking time will vary. Just be sure the bottom of the crackers are golden before they are flipped and cut.
  • Ever had grey salt? Or sal de gris? (meaning grey salt lol) The flavour is AMAZING! It is contains magnesium which is excellent to maintain a healthy low carb diet. Give it a try next time you are in the market for some tasty salt!

Ingredients

  • ¾ cup almond flour
  • 2 tbsp unsalted butter
  • ¼ cup aged white cheddar
  • ½ tsp baking powder
  • ¾ tsp dried rosemary divided
  • ¼ tsp garlic powder
  • ½ tsp sea salt divided
  • 1 egg white

Instructions

Equipment Needed

Directions

    Form the crackers

    • Heat oven to 300° and melt the butter, then set it aside to cool.
    • Cut one piece of parchment and one of the wax paper the size of your baking sheet. Spray one side of each with avocado or olive oil.
    • In a medium bowl combine almond flour with baking powder, ¼ tsp sea salt, ½ tsp rosemary and the garlic powder. Mix well, breaking down the almond flour clumps as you go.
    • Using the small side of a cheese grater or a zester, grate the aged cheddar until you have ¼ cup shredded cheese. Mix into the almond flour then knead in the egg white and melted butter until fully combined.
    • Scrape out onto the center of the oiled parchment paper. Lay the oiled wax paper over top of the dough and roll out into until it’s roughly 20cms by 30cms.
    • It will form an oval but to make a perfect rectangle, just remove the wax paper and trim into a rectangle, using the trimmed dough to fill in the corners.
    • Form the cracker shapes with a knife, pizza blade or fondant scraper; Don’t cut all the way through.
    • Sprinkle with remaining rosemary and a pinch of sea salt. Use a meat mallet to create the dimpled cracker look or leave as is.

    Bake the crackers

    • Slide the parchment paper onto the baking sheet and bake on the center rack for 10-12 minutes, or until the bottom of the crackers are lightly golden brown.
    • Remove from the oven then cut all the crackers apart using a sharp knife. Flip the crackers over and bake for an additional 5-8 minutes until each cracker is perfectly golden brown.

    Notes

    • Store in an airtight container at room temperature.
    • Keep an eye on the crackers during the last baking period: you may need to remove some before the rest if they brown sooner than the others.
