Low Carb Cheese Crackers Recipe – Keto Friendly

 

I’m so excited to have a crunchy Low Carb Cheese Crackers Recipe that’s Keto friendly!  I’ve started the Keto plan 8 days ago and so far I have lost a pound a day!  I hardly want to call it a diet because I can see myself eating this way for the rest of my life and I’ve never said that before with other things I’ve tried. Enjoy this low carb cheese cracker recipe!

Update:  I’ve had so many people ask me about the Keto diet that I decided to write a separate post on all of the information I’ve learned about it over the past 2 months.  It’s basically a brain dump of all the things the are important to know when you get started.  I call it the Simple Way to Start the Ketogenic Diet.

The Best Low Carb Cheese Crackers Recipe

I’m the type of person that loves crunchy snacks.  Often find that I snack on nuts or pork rinds but that can get a bit old. Some people need variety, and I have to have a variety.  Today I made a batch of Rosemary Sea Salt Cheese Crackers!  I don’t think I have ever been this excited about a snack.  It was scrumptious!  I can’t even compare it to any other cracker I’ve had before.  I mean, I really like Cheese Nips and Cheez-Its but these are so much better.

If you have twenty minutes and these few ingredients, you can have one heck of a treat!  Seriously,  only 20 minutes!  Ok, maybe 25 but that’s it!

Low Carb Cheese Crackers Recipe Ingredients

  • 2 Cups Cheese of your choice (I used a Parmesan-Romano mix along with some swiss and cheddar)
  • 1 cup Almond Flour
  • 1 egg
  • 2 oz Cream Cheese
  • 1/2 teaspoon sea salt
  • 1 teaspoon Rosemary (or a seasoning of your choice such as basil, chives, garlic, dill weed, spicy chili, thyme, oregano etc…)

Low Carb Cheese Crackers Recipe Instructions

  1. Mix all the cheeses (including the cream cheese) along with the almond flour in a microwave safe bowl and cook it for exactly one minute.  (UPDATE:  There some people that prefer not to use a microwave and I certainly understand that.  You can heat these ingredients up on the stove top too.  You are going to heat them up just enough for the cheese to my melted enough for you to roll out the dough.  I would continue stirring it while heating it up on the stove top.)
  2. Immediately stir the ingredients until the almond flour and cheeses have combined fully.  You want the cheese to be partially melted (see photo)
  3. Allow this to cool for a few minutes because if you put the egg in these ingredients too soon it will cook the egg.
  4. Now add the egg, sea salt, and seasoning of your choice.  I decided to cut up some fresh rosemary I had on hand.  You want to add about a teaspoon of your favorite seasoning unless it’s a spicy mix.  I would add only about a 1/2 teaspoon for spicy seasonings.
  5. Mix it together until all the ingredients are fully combined.  If you cheese has gotten too hard or it’s too hard to mix, you can microwave your cheese for another 20 seconds to get it soft again.
  6. Now you will place the ball of dough on a large sheet of parchment paper.  Then place another sheet of parchment paper of equal size on top of the ball of dough.
  7. You can use your hands or a rolling pin to spread the dough out into a thin layer.  It spread so easily that I used my hands to have more control and keep the dough inside the square piece of parchment paper.  Make sure the parchment paper is the same size as your baking sheet.
  8. Next, use a pizza cutter to cut the crackers into small squares as seen in the photos.
  9. Bake these crackers on each side at 450 degrees for about 5 or 6 minutes on each side.  If the crackers are thin, you will cook them about 5 minutes on each side but if the dough is thick, it may take 7 to 9 minutes to get the crispy cracker texture you are looking for.  When you keep the dough on the parchment paper it’s really easy to flip it over while it’s hot after cooking it on the first side.  I ended up using the pizza cutter again to define the lines on the flip side too.  Feel free to leave the crackers in the oven longer (but watch them closely) if you love a very crispy texture.  The crispier the better for me!
  10. Allow the crackers to cool for about 5 minutes and they are ready to eat!

I made another batch as snacks for the week.  I divided these up into 10 small baggies!  This put about 5 to 6 crackers in each baggy!  The more I make these the more I roll the dough thinner and thinner.  If you roll the dough really think the crackers come out crispier and you will get a bigger quantity!

Here are the nutrition facts for this recipe if you divided them up into 10 servings:

I ended up adding up all these ingredients in a recipe calculator and determined the nutritional ingredients for 10 servings:
