Parmesan crisps are an easy & quick snack. I tried the classic Parmesan-only crisps and I always felt something was missing. I still wanted to keep it simple, so I decided to give coconut flour a try. The extra coconut flour makes them somewhat more cracker-like, less cheese-like. And guess what. They were amazing, especially when I added some herbs!

Ingredients (makes 4 servings)

  • 200 g Parmesan cheese or other Italian hard cheese (7.1 oz)
  • 4 level tbsp coconut flour (32 g/ 1.1 oz)
  • Optional: 1-2 tsp rosemary, oregano or any herbs of choice, dried or fresh, or crushed black pepper


  1. Preheat the oven to 175 °C/ 350 °F (fan assisted), or 195 °C/ 380 °F (conventional). In a bowl, mix the coconut flour and grated parmesan cheese. Don't use finely grated ("powdery") parmesan cheese, as it wouldn't work in this recipe. You can add any herbs you like. I tried oregano and rosemary and loved both of them!

I changed the way I ate in 2011, when I was diagnosed with Hashimoto’s, an autoimmune disease that affects the thyroid. I had no energy, and I found it more and more difficult to maintain a healthy weight.

That’s when I decided to quit sugar, grains, and processed foods, and to start following a whole-foods-based ketogenic approach to food.

These are so delicious and so crunchy!  However, I found 4 tablespoons of coconut flour far more than needed and actually sieved the mixture to remove a whole lot.  I will try it with just a couple of spoons next time, as there will definitely be a next time!

Thank you Christiana! I should have clarified it's level tablespoon - I'll just add a note to make sure it's the correct amount.

These didn’t work for me. They didn’t stick together. Any ideas on why? They pretty much just crumbled.

I'm not sure but I suspect that it was low-fat parmesan cheese? Did you use regular grated Parmesan?

These are my to go "chips" to serve with wine and cheese. Herbes de Provence also work with them.

Tried with curry spices: Great!

Curry spices work great with everything! 😊

Thanks for sharing this amazing recipe - love the rosemary version! 😊

Great recipes! Hope to see even more of these 😉 I tried parmesan chips from just the cheese but I will definitely give this one a go!
