Low Carb Crackers Ingredients
This section explains how to choose the best ingredients for almond flour crackers, what each one does in the recipe, and substitution options. For measurements, see the recipe card below.
- Almond Flour – The main ingredient in the best keto crackers! The fine grind and healthy fat content makes them buttery without any actual butter. But not all brands are created equal — I recommend Wholesome Yum Blanched Almond Flour for the best taste and texture. Different brands vary in coarseness, so some can yield a gritty consistency. Almond meal or “ground almonds” will definitely do this. If you want to use coconut flour, it won’t work as a 1:1 replacement, but you can try these coconut flour crackers instead.
- Egg – Used as a binder. A flax egg may also work, but I haven’t tried it. The crackers will probably be more fragile with an egg substitute.
- Sea Salt – Adds savory flavor to the low carb keto crackers. Use any fine salt you like.

How To Make Keto Crackers With Almond Flour
This section shows how to make almond flour crackers, with step-by-step photos and details about the technique, to help you visualize it. For full instructions, including amounts and temperatures, see the recipe card below.
- Prep. Preheat the oven. Line a baking sheet with parchment paper.
- Mix. Combine the almond flour and sea salt in a large bowl. Add the egg and mix well, until a dough forms. (You can also mix in a food processor.)
- Roll. Place the dough between two large pieces of parchment paper. Use a rolling pin roll out the dough into a large rectangle. Cut the cracker dough into smaller rectangles with a pizza cutter or sharp knife. Prick with a fork or toothpick if desired. Place on the lined baking sheet.
- Bake. Low carb crackers are finished when golden on the edges.
- Cool. They will crisp up more as they cool.
Tips For The Best Low Carb Crackers
Follow these tips for perfect low carb crackers every time!
- Oil your hands if needed. 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.
- Roll as evenly and thinly as possible. Uniform thickness ensures that your keto crackers cook evenly, and rolling them extra thin ensures that they get crispy.
- No need to waste extra dough. 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.
- Prick with a toothpick or fork. This helps them cook more evenly and prevents bubbling.
- Watch crackers closely. They go from crisp to burned a bit quickly toward the end. Baking time can vary depending on your pan, your oven, and how thinly you roll out the dough.
- Let them cool. Allow the crackers to cool completely before handling. They need to cool to crisp up.
Variations For Almond Flour Crackers
Feel free to add your own spices for a totally unique twist. Here are some ideas for your crispy keto crackers:
- Toasted: Sesame seeds, chia seeds, or poppy seeds would make yummy keto-friendly crackers (or try everything bagel seasoning).
- Chopped Herbs: Rosemary, basil, and parsley would all be good for a savory low carb cracker.
- Italian: You can transform these crackers with some garlic powder and Italian seasoning.
- Mediterranean: With some basil and sun dried tomatoes diced up and baked in. Make sure to dry the oil from the tomatoes, so the crackers don’t turn out too oily.
- Sweet: Yes, you can even make this keto crackers recipe sweet! Simply add your favorite sugar substitute, 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 spreading mascarpone cheese on them… mmmm.
- Store: Let your almond flour crackers cool completely before storing them, or they will not stay crispy and will spoil faster. Store them in an airtight container for up to 1 week.
- Freeze: Cool completely and store in a freezer bag or freezer container. Line the layers of crackers with parchment paper so they don’t stick together.
What To Serve With Keto Crackers
The best keto crackers need cheese, right?! That’s one option, but I’ve got loads of others for you:
- Low Carb Dips – These keto crackers are always a hit with low carb dips like spinach artichoke dip, cold crab dip, guacamole, salsa, or bacon ranch dip.
