What are almond flour crackers?
Keto crackers are delicious crunchy bites with a bread-like texture that makes a delicious savory keto snack or keto low-carb appetizer.
They are easy to make, using only 3 ingredients, and suitable for any healthy diet, including gluten-free, paleo, and vegan.
How to make your crackers?
It’s super easy to whip a batch of healthy almond flour crackers using only 3 wholesome pantry ingredients. You don’t even need dairy, eggs, or cheese for this recipe which makes it even more versatile.
In fact, it’s up to you to flavor these crackers with sweet or savory spices or keep them plain for a delicious keto snack.
Ingredients for low carb almond flour crackers
All you need to make this recipe for crackers with almond flour are:
- Ultra-fine blanched almond flour – that’s one of the best keto-friendly flour to bake crackers. It’s fine, white in color, and creates crispy crackers without grainy texture. I don’t recommend using almond meal or ground almonds to avoid a gritty texture in your crackers. These two are the coarse version of almond flour, usually grounded almonds with skin on and it results in dry crackers with dark color.
- Golden flax meal – also known as ground flax seeds. This is an egg-free cracker recipe, and flaxseed meal is the binder in the recipe. It holds the almond flour together to create delicious crispy keto crackers without eggy flavor.
Then feel free to flavor the crackers by adding some of the below ingredients into the dough. If you are new to keto almond flour recipes, adding spices is a great way to hide the almond flour.

- Sea salt – a pinch of salt or garlic powder or garlic salt adds a great flavor to these crackers.
- Spices – ground paprika, curry powder, turmeric, Italian seasonings, or sugar-free sweeteners for a sweet version.
- Seeds – bagel seasoning, sesame seeds, or hemp seeds for a boost of proteins.
Combine all ingredients
In a large mixing bowl, stir the almond flour, flaxseed meal, any spices or salt you want to add in, and water. Stir the dough until it forms a ball.
Rolling the dough
Then, place the dough ball between two pieces of parchment paper. This prevents the dough from sticking to the rolling pin.
You can also use two silicone mats if preferred. Also, you can lightly oil the benchtop with olive oil if your parchment paper slips onto the surface while rolling.
Roll the dough into a 0.1-inch (3 mm) thickness. Thick crackers thick longer to bake.
You can control the thickness of your crackers by rolling them with pastry rulers. You can also fold your baking paper into a rectangle shape before rolling the dough. This way, the dough is encased into this shape and can’t be rolled thinner on some parts.
Remove the top piece of parchment paper and set it aside to reuse in another recipe.
Cut the dough
Now, use a sharp knife to cut the dough into 14 rectangle shapes.
Bake the crackers
Preheat the oven to 325F (160C).
Finally, slide the sheet of parchment paper with the cut crackers on it onto a baking sheet.
Bake the crackers for 10 minutes, then open the oven and loosen each cracker on the baking sheet using the tip of a knife.
Return in the oven until crackers are golden brown and crispy on the side.

My MacrosTo get yours, join Sweetashoney Members!
Spices - optional
- ¼ teaspoon Salt
- ¼ teaspoon Garlic Powder
- ¼ teaspoon Ground paprika
- ¼ teaspoon Onion Powder or flakes
- ⅛ teaspoon Chilli Powder
- ¼ teaspoon Cumin
- Preheat oven to 180°C (350°F).
- In a medium mixing bowl, combine almond flour, flaxseed meal, and any spices or salt you want to add in.
- Stir in water until it forms a dough ball. The dough should not be sticky. If so, read the troubleshooting notes.
- Place the dough onto a piece of parchment paper. Place another piece of parchment paper on top of the ball. Slightly press to flatten and then start rolling with a rolling pin into 0.1-inch (3 mm) thickness.
- Remove the top parchment paper layer. Dip a knife blade into the water, slightly dry with a towel. This will prevent the blade from sticking to the dough. Cut rectangle shapes - you should be able to make 14 rectangles.
- Slide the parchment paper sheet with the cut-out crackers onto a baking tray. Make sure you leave some space between each cracker to ensure a nice crisp on the border. If they are too close to each other, they don't crisp as much.
- Bake at 350°F/180°C for 12 minutes, then open the oven and use the tip of a knife to space up the crackers if needed. This helps the sides crisp more.
- Return to the oven and keep baking for up to 20 minutes or until golden brown on top and crispy.
- Fully cool down on a cooling rack. The crackers will harden as they cool down and get their full crispy texture after 30 minutes at room temperature.
- Store in a glass jar or airtight container (careful, plastic box soften the crackers). Store up to 10 days in the pantry. Don't store them in the fridge, or they will soften.
