Ingredients

  • ¾ cup almond flour
  • ¼ cup cheddar cheese *see note 1
  • ½ tsp baking powder
  • ¼ tsp garlic powder
  • ½ tsp coarse sea salt divided. * do not use finely ground salt
  • 1 egg white
  • 2 tbsp butter

Optional Toppings

  • rosemary or your favourite herbs *see note 2
  • everything but the bagel seasoning *see note 3

Instructions

Equipment Needed

  • Medium Mixing Bowl
  • Cheese Grater or Zester
  • Baking Sheet
  • Parchment and Wax Paper
  • Fondant Cutter or Pizza Cutter

Directions

  • Start by heating your oven to 300°. Cut a piece of parchment the size of a baking sheet and spray with avocado or olive oil. Melt the butter and set aside.
  • In a medium 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.
  • Dump the dough onto the oiled parchment paper, then spray some oil onto another piece parchment (or wax paper) and place over the dough *see note 4. 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 *see note 5.
  • Remove and discard the top piece of parchment (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 *see note 6. Sprinkle the surface with the extra sea salt, rosemary, everything but the bagel seasoning or anything else you might like.
  • Slide the parchment 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. Bake for 5-8 minutes or until lightly golden brown *see note 7.
  • Cool completely and enjoy! Store in an air tight container at room temperature. These beauties will be in their prime for up to 7 days.

Notes

  1. Cheese – The cheese in this Keto Crackers recipe is used for flavour. I like an aged orange cheddar to make my crackers taste like Keto cheese-its. Go ahead and try different cheeses like havarti, gouda or monterey jack!
  2. 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. 
  3. Everything but the bagel seasoning - Combine ½ tsp sesame seeds with ½ tsp dehydrated onion flakes, ¼ tsp poppy seeds and the remaining ¼ tsp sea salt. Give it a stir before sprinkling the crackers with the seasoning.
  4. This dough is super sticky! This is why we cover the dough with an oiled piece of wax paper before rolling out with a rolling pin.
  5. 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.
  6. After the dough has cut into squares, do not try to separate them at this point! They will just mush on you.
  7. 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 minutes or so, until they are golden brown.
