I first made these keto Sesame Crackers a few months ago. If you know me or have looked through the website you will know I love crackers. To say I make a lot is an understatement, but these sesame flour crackers are a current low carb cracker favourite.

This is also a nut-free cracker recipe. So for all my nut-free friends, you will be loving this recipe for sure. Anyway, let’s have a quick look at what is in them, how to make them, and some possible ingredient substitutes.

Keto Sesame Seed Crackers

So the keto Sesame Crackers as I said are really crunchy. This is due to the use of Sukrin’s defatted sesame flour.

This is a product I have only just begun to work with. With all the baking I do I did notice a very distinct difference in the consistency and crunch with this nut-free low carb cracker recipe.

You can swap for almond meal if preferred but honestly though the sesame flour is pretty spesh in these!

The Ingredients

Only 7 ingredients in the sesame cracker recipe. Most of which you will have at home

Main ingredient keto sesame flour ingredients

Parmesan – grate it is super fine. For a dairy free alternative use yeast flakes

Sesame Flour – I use defatted sesame flour from Sukrin. This is different than milled sesame seeds. Substitute almond meal if preferred.

Sesame Seeds are a great source of fats and flavour. Cheap and easy to source. Possible substitutes include Nigella seeds, hemp seeds or poppyseeds.

Eggs – I always use the freshest of eggs in a jumbo size. I always have eggs at room temperature.

Sour Cream adds a nice twang of sourness and moisture. Possible substitutes are cream cheese, coconut yoghurt (for dairy-free) coconut cream or yoghurt.

Salt flakes and Chicken Stock powder. Just pick your favourite. I love Olssons.

    I don’t have that ready sesame flour that I can buy, do you think I can make my own like with the golden lindseed?
    Thank you

      Hi Franziska, you can only try as I have not tested it.

    These are cool Megan! I can see how fun they would be to have on the table and that there would be great excitement from everyone when they spied them. Thanks for another great recipe! Can’t wait to read your latest cookbook!

    1. Megan Mad Creations Hub

      Thanks Adrianne. I hope you love both the crackers and the book.

  6. Debra Jacobs

    Do you think I could use cream cheese or cottage cheese as a sub for sour cream? and was thinking maybe later sunflower seed flour would work as a sub for sesame seed flour great recipe thank you Megan.

    1. Megan Mad Creations Hub

      Hi Debra, I have addressed some of these in the blog post where I walk about possible substitutions. I have not tested sun flour in this recipe as yet, so I cannot guarantee they would turn out the same.
