Your search for the best keto cheese crackers recipe is over! These low carb cheese crackers are reminiscent of the bright orange crackers you might have grown up eating (hint: keto Cheez-Its, anyone?!). But this version is made with nutritious ingredients and real cheese as the base! Crackers may sound like a lot to make from scratch, but I think you’ll be surprised by how easy this cheddar cheese crackers recipe is! These almond flour cheese crackers are made with just 3 ingredients, but there is a fourth ingredient I recommend for extra cheesy-iness. 😉
Eat this keto cheese crackers recipe all on its own, or serve with dips or cured meat, like summer sausage, for an easy cheese & cracker snack. No matter how you eat them, you’ll love these low carb crackers made from cheese! If you need to avoid dairy but still want a crunchy snack, try these flax seed crackers instead.
Low Carb Cheese Crackers Ingredients
There are only 3 simple ingredients in this recipe for keto cheese crackers! Plus an option to add in even more cheesy flavor…
- Cheddar cheese – This is the base of the baked cheddar crackers. It gives them rich and real cheesy flavor.
- Almond flour – Nutritious almond flour takes the place of refined flour in classic cheddar cheese crackers.
- Egg – The binder. This helps keep the low carb cheese cracker recipe stay together.
- Nutritional yeast – Optional, but will help make the no carb cheese crackers recipe taste even cheesier!
How To Make Keto Cheese Crackers
Making your own almond flour cheese crackers may sound like a lot of work, but it really only takes 15 minutes of prep and some time in the oven!
- Melt the cheese. Using the microwave or double boiler, heat the cheese until it’s smooth and easy to stir.
TIP: You may notice some of the oil separating when you melt the cheese. That’s okay! Just stir it back together as much as you can, and you can still incorporate the remaining oil in the recipe. The keto Cheez-Its won’t be oily when they’re done, I promise!
- Mix the almond flour cheese crackers base. Stir together almond flour, sea salt, and nutritional yeast, if you’re using it.
- Mix the keto cheese crackers dough. Add the cheddar to the almond flour mixture and use your hands to knead until a uniform dough forms. It’s normal for it to be a bit oily, so don’t worry about that.
- Form a ball. Chill if necessary to make it less sticky. (This will depend on the temperature in your kitchen.)
TIP: If the cheddar cheese crackers dough is difficult to work with, check my tips in my fathead pizza post.
- Roll out dough. In between two pieces of parchment paper, roll dough out into a rectangle, about 1/16-1/8 inch thick.
TIP: The thinner you roll the keto cracker dough, the crispier your crackers will get! So, try to get it as thin as you can.
- Cut the crackers. Using a ruler to help guide you, cut crackers into squares or rectangles and place onto a lined baking sheet. Prick with a fork or toothpick to prevent bubbling.
- Bake the almond flour cheese crackers. If there is any oil on top of the crackers after baking, lightly blot with paper towel.
TIP: If you want them extra crisp, turn the oven off when they are just barely golden. Then, leave them in the oven, with the oven off and door propped open with a wooden spoon.

Melt the cheddar cheese in the microwave or in a double boiler on the stove, until smooth and easy to stir. It will release some oil, which is okay, but try to stir it together as much as possible.
Meanwhile, stir together the almond flour, sea salt, and nutritional yeast, if using. Stir in the egg, until combined. The mixture will be crumbly.
Add the melted cheddar to the bowl and use your hands to knead, squeezing between your fingers, until a uniform dough forms. It will feel oily - this is normal. (If you have issues getting it to incorporate, this is similar to making fathead dough - check my tips in my fathead pizza post or see the complete fathead dough guide in The Wholesome Yum Easy Keto Cookbook.)
Form a ball with the dough. If it's too sticky to work with, chill for about 15 minutes.
Grease 2 pieces of parchment paper lightly and place the ball of dough between them. Roll to a very thin rectangle, about 1/16 (.2 cm) to 1/8 inch (.4 cm) thick. (It will tend to roll into an oval shape, so just rip off pieces of dough and re-attach to form a more rectangular shape.)
Preheat the oven to 350 degrees F (177 degrees C). Line a baking sheet with parchment paper.
Cut the crackers into squares or rectangles and place onto the lined baking sheet. Prick with a fork or toothpick to prevent bubbling.
Bake for 8-12 minutes, until golden. If there is any oil on top of crackers after baking, pat with paper towels. Cool completely to crisp up.
