When I shared this salmon paté, some of you were wondering what those green bread-like squares were. As you may have guessed, the main ingredient in this recipe - spinach - is what gives the crackers a vibrant green colour. They are great for snacking, lunch boxes and are perfect for traveling. Apart from pate or cheese dips, these crackers also taste great with guacamole. Depending on the occasion, you can make a few large or several small crackers. I cut the dough in 16 pieces but you can roll it out even thinner or cut it into more pieces.

Ingredients (makes 16 crackers)

  • 150 g fresh or frozen and thawed spinach (5.3 oz)
  • 1 1/2 cups almond flour (150 g/ 5.3 oz)
  • 1/4 cup coconut flour (30 g/ 1.1 oz)
  • 1/2 cup flaxmeal (75 g/ 2.6 oz)
  • 1/4 cup butter or ghee, room temperature (56 g/ 2 oz)
  • 1/2 tsp ground cumin
  • 1/2 tsp dried, flaked chili peppers
  • 1/2 cup grated Parmesan cheese or other Italian hard cheese (45 g/ 1.6 oz)
  • 1/2 tsp salt (I like pink Himalayan)


  1. Fill a sauce pan with water and bring to a boil over a high heat. Once simmering, add the spinach and cook for just about a minute until wilted. Transfer the leaves into a bowl with cold water. Then, strain and squeeze the water out of the leaves. If you're using frozen and thawed spinach, make sure you squeeze any water out. Cheesy Grain-Free Spinach Crackers
  2. Place in a blender or food processor and pulse until smooth. When done, set aside. Cheesy Grain-Free Spinach Crackers
  3. Meanwhile, mix the dry ingredients: almond flour, coconut flour, flaxmeal, cumin, chili flakes, salt and Parmesan cheese. Cheesy Grain-Free Spinach Crackers
  4. Add the spinach and softened butter. Using your hands, mix until well combined. Cheesy Grain-Free Spinach Crackers
  5. Wrap the dough in a foil and place in the fridge for 30-60 minutes. Then, preheat the oven to 200 °C/ 400 °F. Remove the wrapping and place on a baking sheet lined with parchment paper. Cheesy Grain-Free Spinach Crackers
  6. Place another piece of parchment paper on top and roll out until the dough is about 1/2 cm / 1/4 inch thin. Alternatively, use a nonstick silicon covered roller and a silicon mat like I did in this tortilla recipe.
    Note: I rolled the dough out directly in the baking sheet and that's how I achieved the square shape. You can roll the dough out even thinner or cut the crackers into more pieces. Cheesy Grain-Free Spinach Crackers
  7. Using a pizza cutter, cut the dough into 16 equal pieces. Place in the oven and bake for 18-20 minutes. They are not as crunchy as regular crackers: if you prefer a crunchier texture, bake for additional 15-20 minutes on 125 °C/ 260 °F. Try with salmon paté or guacamole on top. Enjoy!

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 look great. I’m not a fan of coconut flour. Would you recommend anything else as an alternative ?


Hi Jackie, you could use flax meal or almond flour. You'll need to use more as coconut flour is about 3 times more absorbent than almond flour. I hope this helps!


These look delicious. I'm curious if they can be done in a dehydrator as well?
Thanks! Shanna


Thank you! I'm not sure, I haven't tried that but since there are no eggs,  I do think you can. I'm sorry I cannot help, I only used a dehydrator for vegetable/fruit "crisps" 😊


My dough does not look green like your dough!   I hope that this comes out ok.


Did the spinach look green? The only other ingredient I can think of is flaxmeal. If you use dark brown instead of golden flaxseed meal, the crackers will get darker but should still be green.


How long would these last kept in a container or put in a vacuum sealed bag do you think?


At room temperature, I'd say up to a week - they never last too long when I make them 😊 Frozen - up to 3 months.


Looks like the soylent green.. hahahaha... thank u for recipe ! I wanna try them.


You've got a point there! 😊))


My mixture using drained frozen spinach was so dry it looked like breadcrumbs. I had to add some water back into to get it to a dough at all. Any suggestion why it might be that way? My Parmesan looks much dryer than yours.


Hi Lindy, yes, it might be the parmesan or a different brand of almond flour or flax meal. I noticed that ready-made finely grated parmesan is a little drier than whole parmesan that you can grate. I'm glad it worked after you added more water!


Is there anything to replace the parmesan and butter with?  I have to eat dairy free but these sound delicious!


Hi Rowena, yes, you can use ghee or coconut oil instead of butter. You can skip the parmesan and either use slightly more almond flour (1/2 cup), flax meal (1/4-1/3 cup) or ground pork rinds (1/2 cup) instead. Hope this helps! 😊


I see green nachos in my future--cut them into triangles and bake them until crisp.  Cover in nacho fixin's and nuke to melt the cheese.


I think these will work pretty well with spinach: Best Keto & Paleo Tortillas, Taco Shells & Nachos - less water and use spinach for part of it. I haven't tried it yet but I'm sure it will work 😊


This is super delicious crackers.. I just made it ..loved it.  I added crushed black pepper .. thaaaaaaaaaank you!  Xx


Thank you Surbhi, glad you loved it! 😊
