Keto Crackers Ingredients
Now let’s talk about what’s in these almond flour crackers… and what isn’t! Unlike your crackers from the store, this low carb crackers recipe contains no fillers, chemicals, additives, or things you can’t pronounce.
Here’s all you need to make this almond flour crackers recipe:
- Blanched almond flour – People sometimes ask what kind of almond flour to use for these keto crackers. I recommend a finely ground, blanched almond flour like this one. You could try an almond meal, but the texture will be different.
- Egg – The egg acts as the binder for these almond meal crackers.
- Sea salt – Adds savory flavor to the low carb keto crackers. (Salt is not usually counted by convention since everyone always has it, so this recipe is considered 2 ingredients.)
If you’ve been eating keto, paleo or gluten-free for any length of time, you probably have these ingredients for this gluten-free crackers recipe at home right now. And if you don’t, run to the grocery store and get them, because you can use the ingredients for tons of other low carb recipes (and paleo recipes). And while you’re out, grab the ingredients for your favorite low carb dip to go with them.
How To Make Keto Crackers
This low carb almond crackers recipe takes less than 30 minutes! Here’s how to make keto crackers in 3 easy steps:
- Mix up the paleo crackers recipe dough. You can make the dough for these almond flour crackers in a food processor, or stir the dough by hand in a bowl. Just mix the almond flour and salt (and other herbs or spices if you prefer) together, and then add in the beaten egg. It will be crumbly.
- Shape the keto crackers. Place the no carb crackers dough in between two layers of parchment paper and roll it into a rectangle shape. Then, just cut the almond flour crackers keto dough into rectangles.
TIP #2: Prick each cracker with a fork or toothpick. This helps them cook more evenly and prevents bubbling.
- Bake the low carb homemade crackers until golden brown.
TIP: Watch them closely toward the end – they go from crisp to burned a bit quickly.
That’s it! Be sure to check the tips below for perfect almond crackers.
Tips For The Best Low Carb Crackers Recipe
- The easiest way to handle the almond crackers dough is by oiling your hands just a little bit. This will prevent sticking. It’s not required, but worth a try if you find the dough sticky to work with.
- Make sure to roll out the dough to an even thickness – the thinner, the better! Uniform thickness ensures that your paleo crackers cook evenly, and rolling them extra thin ensures that they get crispy.
- When rolling out the dough, your goal is a rectangle, but it usually rolls out into an oval, so you may need to cut away some dough and re-attach it. You can do this as many times as you need to.
- Let the carb free crackers cool completely before handling. They need to cool to crisp up.
Optional Additions To This Almond Flour Crackers Recipe
Feel free to add your own spices for a totally unique twist.
- Toasted sesame seeds or poppy seeds would make yummy almond crackers.
- Chopped herbs: rosemary, basil, and parsley would all be good for a savory low carb cracker.
- Italian with some garlic and Italian seasoning.
- Mediterranean with some basil and sun dried tomatoes diced up and baked in.
- Sweet! Yes, you can even make this keto crackers recipe sweet! Simply add your favorite keto friendly sweetener, some vanilla or almond extract, and maybe sprinkle with cinnamon. (You’ll only need a couple tablespoons of sweetener, max – don’t add too much or the dough will be too dry.) And then try dipping them in whipped mascarpone cream dip… mmmm.
What Do Almond Flour Crackers Taste Like?
One of the best parts about this low carb gluten free crackers recipe is that it doesn’t sacrifice taste.
No cardboard tasting substitutes for you! These low carb almond thins taste very similar to your favorite name brand buttery treats, but are just a little more dense. They have incredible crunch and sturdiness, just like a good cracker should. So, go ahead and enjoy ‘em with your favorite topping or scooped into a yummy, creamy dip.
How To Store Paleo Crackers
Another great thing about my keto friendly crackers is that they can be made ahead of time. Store them in an airtight container to eat in a few days or over the course of a week (but only if you can resist eating them all at once!).
TIP: Let your almond flour crackers cool completely before storing them, or they will not stay crispy and will spoil faster.
Can You Freeze Almond Flour Crackers?
Yes, you can definitely freeze this paleo almond cracker recipe! After they are cooled completely, store them in a freezer bag or freezer container.
Line the layers with parchment paper to help protect them and handle them with care so they stay together.
