Keto Cheesy Party Crackers

I love any excuse to make bite-sized party nibbles and the holiday season is the perfect time for them. Party snacks don't have to be unhealthy and fattening and these crispy keto crackers are great for nibbling. You can eat them on their own and they are even better with low-carb dips and sauces such as cheesy bacon dip, salmon paté, guacamole or marinara sauce.

Ingredients (makes 8 servings / 32 crackers):

Instructions:

  1. Mix the dry ingredients: almond flour, flaxmeal, psyllium, salt and pepper.
    Just like in low-carb tortillas, whole psyllium husks work better than psyllium husk powder but you can use either. If you have psyllium husk powder, use only 1 tablespoon instead of 2 tablespoons.
  2. Add grated Parmesan cheese and combine well. Pour in the water and...
  3. ... using your hands or a spatula, mix well. Let the dough sit for 10-15 minutes. Meanwhile, preheat the oven to 160 C / 320 F. Divide the dough into 2 equal parts.
  4. Place half of the dough on a parchment paper. Place another piece of parchment paper on top and roll out until the dough is about very thin (about ¼ cm / ⅛ inch). You can use a nonstick silicon covered roller and a silicon mat. To achieve a rectangular shape, use the edges of the parchment paper or silicon mat to fold the dough over from the sides...
  5. ... and then roll again to flatten with the rolling pin. Repeat as needed.
  6. Using a pizza cutter, cut the dough into 16 equal pieces. Repeat the process for the other half of the dough that you kept aside.
  7. Place in the oven and bake for 40-45 minutes. Try with cheesy bacon dip, salmon paté, guacamole or marinara sauce. Tip: If you use parchment paper like I did, the crackers may stick to it. You can avoid it by using a silicon mat instead. If your crackers stick, you can remove the parchment paper by placing a wet kitchen towel on the bottom side over the parchment paper. Leave just for 20-30 seconds and peel it off the crackers carefully. Store at room temperature for up to 5 days or freeze for up to 3 months. Enjoy!

Just wondering if the flaxseeds you use in your recipes are the dark brown or golden variety?

Reply

I mostly use golden (like in this recipe) but you can use either.

Can it be done without the cheese? Thanks for the recipe.

I think you could use some extra flax or almond flour instead.

I'd love to have crackers again but cannot do nuts or seeds. Any chance we could see a cracker recipe with no almond flour, no psyllium, no flax? You are so accommodating on the no nut recipes (THANK YOU) so I just thought I'd up the ante with no seed thing since lots of folks who can't do nuts also can't do seeds well. In any case, thank you for all that you do!

Thank you Susan I will work on that Smile I think I'll try to play with coconut flour + parmesan cheese, add some eggs (coconut flour is very absorbent and will need more moisture). I also started using tigernut flour which free of nuts and seeds but I'm just getting used to it. It's quite sweet so I'm not sure about using it in savoury recipes.

I just made these and they're wonderful! We used to make cracker sandwiches when we were kids and I'm doing it again. Simply put some delicious butter between two crackers and you've got yourself a yummy snack. Tong Thank you for the wonderful recipe.

Hi! I am new to keto. My partner is doing it and I'm the cook in the house so your website has been great. I had a question with these crackers, I have a dehydrator-could I use this instead of the oven and any clue how long/temp? I'm new to the dehydrating world too so experimenting on even ground!! Thank you

Reply

Thank you! I would think so. Since there are no eggs, a dehydrator should work too. I'm just not sure about the time & temperature, I haven't used a dehydrator - let me know if you try it Smile

I made these last night and was very pleased with the results. I did find that they crisped up by this morning and were more like crackers. Thanks for sharing!

Thank you Kathy, I'm glad you liked them!

Hi, I started low carb eating a few months ago, and have tried heaps of recipes to keep life as simple as possible. And so far, you have the best recipes! I love these crackers, your bread recipe, and your ice cream as well!!
I just wanted to say well done! And THANK YOU!

Thank you so much Gina! Smile

Hi,
These look good, but I have a question. Where does the water need to be added?  Thanks!

Reply

Thanks for spotting that Christy! It's in step 3.

Reply

The temprature of the oven?

Reply

Sorry found it!

Hi,
Have just watched your tutorial. Had no idea there was so much else I could do. Have been using Myfitnesspal for over a year very successfully but will experiment with gradually transferring to your app. Seems like I can search for my own recipes etc.
But one request. I have noticed that when I clck on an ingredient link it goes to amazon.com - and no quick way to switch to .co.uk for same ingredient. Any way to default to that rather than .com?
Thanks again. Just tried your cream cheese crepes (more omelette really?). Very good.
Lynda

Hi Lynda, thank you! We are planning to implement a way to determine where our users are connecting from and default to the right Amazon store. We have so many items on our to-do list now but will do our best to implement that soon. Thank you! Smile
