My newest cracker favourite is definitely these sour cream and chive keto crackers!

I made them and was virtually eating them straight from the baking tray as others were in the oven.  So sooooo good!  Seriously, I dare you to tell me when you make them that these couldn’t be boxed up and be a best selling Arnotts Keto Cracker!

  • 200 g almond meal for a nut free cracker substitute defatted sesame flour.
  • 30 g grated parmesan, I use Hunter Belle Smokey Barbecue Bacon cheese but any kind of hard cheese like parmesan will do.
  • 50 g sour cream
  • 1/2 tsp sumac, available in most supermarkets.
  • 1 tbsp chives fresh chopped
  • Sea salt flakes

Instructions have been given for thickness in rolling the Sour Cream & Chive Keto Crackers.

These crackers come out delicious either wafer thin (think super crispy ) and a little thicker like a standard cracker.  

I am not talking crap when I say these are delicious and easily my favourite.

I am making more today and I thought a really nice alternative version might be with some tomato powder and basil for a real Italian pizza flavour.  I so have to give that a go too.

  • 200 g almond meal
  • 30 g grated parmesan I use Hunter Belle Smokey Barbecue Bacon Cheese
  • 50 g sour cream
  • 1/2 tsp sumac
  • 1 tbsp chives fresh chopped


  • sea salt flakes I use Maldon smoked sea salt
  • lemon pepper I use Goya brand lemon pepper it is amazing!


Conventional Method

  • Preheat oven to 180℃. Line 2 baking trays with baking paper
  • Mix all ingredients in bowl and follow instructions below

Thermomix Method

  • Preheat oven to 180℃. Line 2 baking trays with baking paper
  • Add almond meal, parmesan, sour cream and sumac to mixing bowl. Mix 15 sec/speed 5.
  • Add chives and mix 5 sec/reverse/speed 3.
  • Turn out onto silicone mat or large sheet of baking paper. Press mix down firmly with hands and cover with another sheet of baking paper. Roll out to 1-2mm thickness.
  • Cut to shape and carefully transfer to prepared baking trays
  • Turn oven down to 150℃. Season with salt flakes
  • Bake 7-10 minutes. Cooking times may vary due to thickness of cracker. Please keep a watch after the 6 minute mark and remove any crackers that are lightly golden and firm when tapped with your finger tip.
  • Allow to cool on wire rack before serving


For a nut free version please replace almond meal with sunflower seed meal, or a mix of sunflower and pepita meal.
For dairy free replace the cheese with nut cheese, and sour cream for the dairy free variety.
These crackers will store in an airtight jar for 2-3 weeks, but probably won’t get to last that long as everyone will want to eat them

    Whats an alternative to the Hunter Belle cheese that you use? Just ordinary parmesan?

  • Sandra says:

    Hi, tried these today.. Had no Parmesan so subbed with grated mozzarella, no chives so added a bit of dill & onion spice mix. I just free formed on the tray and marked into pieces. Best not to do that, they cooked quite unevenly, taste great though. Really happy, will make these again.

    • Megan says:

      Hi Sandra, a better cheese would be any firm cheese not soft like mozzarella. I am glad you like them though still. Try again with the finely grated parmesan. These are a winning recipe

  • Lynette says:

    Hi Megan what is sumac and where can I buy it please .

  • Sarah says:

    Hey Megan, how big are the crackers? I’m thinking about making, and squares would be better for my use, but don’t want to make the squares too big or it would be harder to calculate fats, etc. Thanks

  • Penny P says:

    Delicious and so easy to make! Now to put them away so I don’t eat too many.

  • Howdy would you mind letting me know which webhost you’re utilizing?
    I’ve loaded your blog in 3 completely different internet browsers and I must say this blog loads a lot faster then most.
    Can you recommend a good web hosting provider at a fair
    price? Cheers, I appreciate it!

    I just made these after reading all the good reviews. They are delicious! I didn’t have chives so put in some garlic powder, subbed lemon zest for sumac and sprinkled with lemon pepper. Thanks so much for the recipe!
