With just three simple ingredients, you can make paleo crackers that taste just like the ones you used to like before you started eating healthier. This gluten-free crackers recipe gives you buttery tasting, crispy almond flour crackers that you can enjoy all week long without any guilt at all!
What Do Almond Flour Crackers Taste Like?
One of the best parts about this gluten-free crackers recipe is that it doesn’t sacrifice taste.
No cardboard tasting substitutes for you! These almond crackers 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.
The taste of these paleo crackers is wonderfully buttery, which is amazing because they contain no butter at all! These almond flour crackers even come out of the oven crispy, so you can eat them immediately. They crisp up even more with time, too.
Ingredients for the Best Low Carb Crackers Recipe
Now let’s talk about what’s in them… 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. Nope, not even a little bit of those things.
Blanched almond flour, an egg, and sea salt are all that’s required to make this crunchy gluten-free crackers recipe. So beautifully simple. And delicious.
If you’ve been eating keto, paleo or gluten-free for any length of time, you probably have these ingredients at home right now… which means that in just a little while you can be crunching on this gluten-free crackers recipe.
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). Plus, you’re going to love these almond crackers! And while you’re out, grab the ingredients for your favorite low carb dip to go with them.
Seriously, you’re going to absolutely love these low carb, paleo crackers. So here’s what you need to make them:
- Blanched almond flour
- Sea salt
- Bonus: add your own twist!
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.
Feel free to add your own spices for a totally unique twist. Toasted sesame seeds or poppy seeds would make yummy almond crackers. Or add some chopped herbs: rosemary, basil, and parsley would all be good for a savory low carb cracker.
Other possible flavor combos for this low carb crackers recipe to consider trying are Italian with some garlic and Italian seasoning, Mediterranean with some basil and sun dried tomatoes diced up and baked in, or you could even go sweet with it!
To make this gluten free crackers recipe sweet, add your favorite keto friendly sweetener, some vanilla or almond extract, and maybe sprinkle with cinnamon. And then try dipping them in whipped mascarpone cream dip… mmmm.
How To Make Low Carb Crackers
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, than add in the beaten egg.
The easiest way to handle the almond crackers dough is by oiling your hands. You’ll put the dough ball between two layers of parchment paper so you can roll it out with a rolling pin.
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. Then just cut the dough into rectangles and bake.
One thing to make sure you do, though, is roll out the dough evenly so that your paleo crackers cook evenly. If you don’t, some will burn and others will stay chewy.
Also, make certain to let the almond flour crackers cool completely before handling.
How To Store Paleo Crackers
Another great thing about this low carb crackers recipe is that it can be made ahead of time. You can make the crackers up and 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!).
Make certain to let your almond flour crackers cool completely before storing them or they will not stay crispy and will spoil faster. You don’t want to waste a single, delicious bite.
How To Serve Gluten-free Crackers
So what is the absolute the best way to serve almond crackers?
Any way your little heart desires! The possibilities are endless.
You could try the amazing, silky French pate we serve on special occasions with them. These almond crackers complement the pate perfectly, but the possibilities for using these are endless.
Top them with nut butter, cheese, fancy appetizer toppings, or just eat them plain. They’re utterly delicious no matter what you do with them!
What will you top your sugar-free, gluten free crackers with?
This low carb cracker substitute makes such a perfect paleo cracker that you won’t even miss the real thing… especially when you pair them with or even crab dip.
You could also have them on the side with some delicious soup (have you tried the creamy chicken Florentine yet?) or keto paleo chili. What a great way to add some crunch to your bowl of low carb comfort food!

Preheat the oven to 350 degrees F (177 degrees C) . Line a baking sheet with parchment paper.
- Mix 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.)
Place the dough between two large pieces of parchment paper. Use a rolling pin to roll out to rectangle, about 1/16 (.2 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.)
Cut the cracker dough into rectangles. Prick with a fork or toothpick if desired. Place on the lined baking sheet. Bake for 8-12 minutes, until golden.
