The Ingredients

Scroll to the bottom of this post for the amount of each ingredient needed to make my almond flour crackers recipe.

This is a very simple low-carb cracker recipe, with less than 6 ingredients.

Almond Flour Cracker ingredients in small bowls with labels.

Almond meal – Almond meal and almond flour are slightly different consistency, with the meal being a bit coarser. You can choose either for this recipe. I prefer to use blanched almond flour in this recipe (purely for a lighter colour).

Sesame seedsSesame seeds are used for both flavour and texture in recipes.

Poppy seeds – These are high in fibre, plant fats and nutrients, but also add texture and flavour.

Parmesan – Choose a quality Parmesan cheese for the best flavour. It can be left out for a dairy-free keto cracker. You can substitute nutritional yeast flakes for a cheesy flavour if you wish.

Egg – I prefer to buy fresh, free-range eggs whenever possible and have them at room temperature before using them in a recipe.

Sumac – Sumac is a lemony flavoured Middle Eastern spice that can be found in most supermarkets. Substitute any other spice of choice.

How to make them

Step 1. Preheat the oven to 170℃/340°F (fan forced). Line a large baking tray with a baking sheet. Place all the ingredients, except salt flakes into a food processor; mix until the dough comes together.

Step 2. Place the dough between 2 pieces of parchment paper and use a rolling pin to roll it out into a large thin rectangle. You want the crackers to be about 2-3 mm in thickness.

Step 3. Use a pizza cutter or cracker roller to cut the crackers. I usually get between 50-70 crackers per dough. This depends on the thickness you roll out to. Season with salt flakes, everything bagel seasoning, or any spices or seeds you prefer. Cover again with the baking paper to press the seasoning into the cracker dough. Remove the parchment and place into the preheated oven. Bake in the oven 15-20 minutes or until crispy.

I have included a low carb Thermomix cracker recipe as well. It is just as easy to mix the dough by hand, food processor or in a Thermomix.

More Recipes To Try

Almond Meal or Flour is a keto pantry essential, and is used in a lot of baking recipes. Some of my most popular almond flour recipes are:

  5. Lemon Curd Cake

Hot Tips and FAQ’S

My oven is not fan-forced, so what temperature should I bake these at?

If you are baking in a conventional oven, you can increase the temperature by between 10 and 20 degrees, and monitor the crackers to make sure they don’t burn.

What can I substitute for sumac?

Sumac has a tart, acidic flavour and doesn’t have a direct substitute. If you wanted something that tastes similar, you can try lemon pepper seasoning, but this will have a stronger flavour, so use just a pinch instead of 1/4 teaspoon.

Alternatively, you can substitute it with any spice of your choice. My Cajun Spices would be a tasty choice!

Can these crackers be made dairy-free?

Yes, you can make these crackers dairy-free by omitting the parmesan. If you still wanted a cheesy flavour, you can substitute it with nutritional yeast flakes.

How long can the crackers be stored?

The almond flour crackers can be stored in an airtight container for up to 3 months.

My crackers went a bit soft after storing them.

You can re-crisp the crackers by placing them into a moderate oven (170℃ fan-forced) for a few minutes.

Are these crispy or chewy crackers?

These are a very crispy cracker.  If your crackers are not crispy in towards the centre, then cut out your outside crackers and bake the rest of the mix for a couple of minutes extra until it is crispy.

Notes

This recipe yields approximately 20 servings, based on 60 crackers cut from the dough. The actual number of servings will depend on your preferred portion sizes. 
To calculate the weight of one serving, prepare the recipe as instructed. Weigh the finished recipe, then divide the weight of the finished recipe by 60. The result will be the weight of one serving. 
Nutritional values shown are guidelines only. They are for 1 serving (3 crackers) using the ingredients listed. Actual macros may vary slightly depending on the brand and types of ingredients used. 
I do not use weight per portion for the nutritional as it would require exacting ingredients and uniform cracker sizes to calculate the EXACT nutrition. This is why recipes are based on the ingredients used and divided into portions as a rough guide only!
All recipes have been tested using all of the cooking methods included by various recipe testers.
Store in an airtight container in the fridge for up to 10 days. Alternatively, store in an airtight container and freeze.
The recipe card instructions contain the most basic of steps and list of ingredients. If you have any queries, questions or are unsure of substitutions please scroll up to the blog post for more information.
SUBSTITUTIONS
Sumac has a tart, lemony flavour and doesn’t have a direct substitute. If you wanted something that tastes similar, you can try lemon pepper seasoning, but this will have a stronger flavour, so use just a pinch instead of 1/4 teaspoon. Alternatively, you can substitute it with any spice of your choice. My Cajun Spices would be a tasty choice!
If you are baking in a conventional oven, you can increase the temperature by between 10 and 20 degrees, and monitor the crackers to make sure they don’t burn.
To make these nut free, swap the almond flour for sesame flour.
For dairy free keto crackers, swap the parmesan for nutritional yeast flakes.
For an egg free keto cracker, swap the egg for 1/4 of an avocado 40-50g.

    These are excellent! I use onion powder instead of sumac. I also mark out the squares in dough before baking, once cooked they snap into perfect pieces .
    Do these need to be stored in refrigerator because of the Parmesan?

    1. Megan Mad Creations Hub

      Hi Anita, no they dont need refrigeration they are fine kept in an airtight container.

    Excellent. I didn’t have Sumac so used 1 t. of lemon pepper which was too much. Next time I’ll try 1/4 t.. Very tasty. They don’t taste like saltines. They taste like a health food cracker but they are delicious. Love the sesame seeds in them. Crunchy and delicious. Used my convection oven.
