There are just five main ingredients in the recipe if you don't include the water. Here's what you'll need.
Using almond flour as the main ingredient results in a crisp and nutty cracker.
To give a better texture and taste, a small amount of ground sunflower seeds are added. However, these can be replaced with an everything bagel seasoning or almond flour.
Psyllium husks or flax seeds
To help bind the ingredients together better, psyllium husks or flax seeds are ground into the mix. This also gives a taste and texture more like thin wheat crackers. Chia seeds would likely work as well.
Adding in a bit of coconut or olive oil adds flavor and helps to create a more workable dough. Plus, fat is an essential part of the keto diet!
Every cracker needs a little salt or the taste will be very bland!
Please note: The amounts for each of the simple ingredients needed to make these almond flour crackers are in the recipe card at the bottom of this post.
The dough for these almond flour keto crackers can either be made in a food processor or by hand in a bowl.
Prepare the dough
- In a food processor or large bowl, mix together the almond flour, sunflower seeds, psyllium, and sea salt until well-combined.
- Add the water and coconut oil by pulsing with the food processor or stirring by hand into the bowl. Continue mixing until a dough forms.
Form crackers and bake
- Place the ball of dough on a piece of parchment paper and press it flat.
- Cover flattened dough with another sheet of parchment paper of equal size and roll it to about ⅛ to 1/16 inch thickness with a rolling pin.
- Transfer the dough to a cutting board, remove the top parchment paper, and cut into 1-inch squares using a pizza cutter or knife. Sprinkle sea salt on top if desired.
- Place the dough with bottom parchment paper intact on a baking sheet and bake in the oven at 350°F until the edges are brown and crisp (about 10-15 minutes). Remove the crackers and allow them to cool on a rack, then separate into squares.
These low carb crackers are very simple in taste. That might be perfect based on what you’re serving with them!
But you can also add a little bit of flavor to the recipe. My favorite option is to add sea salt to the dough right after slicing them into squares and before baking them.
If you want something fancier, try experimenting with your favorite herbs! Rosemary crackers would be so delicious. Or maybe you want to add a little garlic powder and parmesan cheese for a big pop of flavor.
You can even make cheese crackers by processing in some cheddar and or cream cheese. Feel free to get creative with the recipe!
🍽️ Serving suggestions

Before getting to the printable recipe, I wanted to cover a few questions that people often have about the low carb crackers recipe.
Cheese crackers like Parm Crisps and Whisps are the best keto crackers to buy as they usually have the least carbs. You can even make your own parmesan crisps at home. Flax seed crackers are another great option.
Although they are lower in carbs than saltine crackers, Wheat Thins have 15g net carbs (16g total) in a 13 cracker serving. So make these homemade ones instead.
If you plan to eat these gluten-free crackers within a few days, they can be stored covered at room temperature. Or, you can store them loosely covered in the refrigerator for up to a week. They can also be frozen in an airtight container for up to 3 months.
