keto crackers ingredients

I use finely ground blanched almond flour. If you make a lot of low carb recipes, it’s a really useful ingredient to have on hand. I haven’t tested coconut flour in this recipe, so use it as a substitution for almond flour at your own risk. You could also sprinkle in other seasonings like basil, oregano, salt and pepper. 

Here are the step-by-step instructions for how to make crackers keto

  1. Preheat the oven to 425F (218C). Put the mozzarella cheese and cream cheese in a small bowl. Microwave it on high for about 40 seconds so it melts together. 
  1. Mix the rest of the cracker ingredients into the cheese mixture until well-combined. I found that it was easiest to do this with my clean hands. 
  1. Line a cookie sheet with a piece of parchment paper. Press the cracker dough out on the parchment into a very thin rectangle (12-inch by 10-inch or 30 cm by 25.4 cm). You want it to be about ⅛-inch thick (0.3 cm). 
  1. Ensuring the dough has been flattened to a uniform thickness helps to ensure more even cooking. The dough stuck to my rolling pin, so I found it easiest to spread the dough out with wet hands. 
  1. Poke holes in the dough with the tines of a fork. The holes should be approximately 1-inch (2.54 cm) apart. Put the sheet of crackers on an oven rack about ½ way down from the top of the oven. 

⏲ Low Carb Crackers Cooking Time and Temperature 

  1. What temperature for keto crackers? How long does making keto crackers take? Bake fat head crackers at 425 degrees Fahrenheit (218C) for a total of 12-14 minutes

Start by baking the crackers for 7 minutes. Then remove them from the oven and let them cool and firm up for 5 minutes. After cooling, use a pizza cutter or sharp knife to cut the cracker sheet into 1¼-inch (3 cm) squares. 

Flip the crackers, moving browned edge pieces to the middle of the tray and middle pieces to the outer edges. This helps your crackers cook more evenly. The crackers should be in a single layer on the baking sheet. 

Put the tray with the crackers back in the oven and bake 5-7 more minutes. The longer you leave them in the oven, the browner and crisper they will be. Just don’t let them burn! 

After removing them from the oven, get the crackers off the baking sheet as soon as possible. I pull the parchment with the crackers off the baking sheet, and then transfer the crackers to a cooling rack. The crackers will continue to cook if left on the hot baking tray, so it is important to move them. 

Let the crackers cool before serving. Enjoy!

You can store leftover keto crackers in the fridge for 2-3 days in an airtight container or freeze them for a couple of months. That said, the crackers are best enjoyed fresh as they lose their crispness with storage. 

You could try reheating your fat head dough crackers to re-crisp them. Reheat in a skillet on the stovetop over low heat. Alternatively, try reheating them in an air fryer for 2-4 minutes at 400F (200C). 

Are prawn crackers keto?

Prawn crackers are typically made with starch and prawns, so they are not keto-friendly. I’m not currently aware of a brand of keto prawn crackers you can buy. With enough consumer demand, I’m sure low carb options will appear in the future.

Notes

💭 Expert Tips from Dietitian Summer Yule

This is a level 3 recipe (weight maintenance and active lifestyles). Though these crackers are packed with nutritious, healthy foods, they are not a light option. A small serving of these crackers provides over 300 calories, a lot for a snack.
Some people find cheese and nuts very filling. The higher protein in this keto dough may lead some people to be satisfied with smaller portions than with a whole grain cracker.
I’m not one of the people who feels cheese and nuts is more satisfying than regular whole wheat crackers. This is one of the reasons the keto diet doesn’t personally work for me. I could very easily overeat energy-dense nuts and cheeses if there isn’t a limit on them.
Composing your meals with plenty of the healthy foods that you find filling may help you to achieve a weight loss goal. For many of us, lean proteins and non-starchy veggies are filling (and low calorie) dietary mainstays for a healthy weight.
However, there’s no one “right” way to eat. Sometimes experimenting a bit is the best way to find what works for you. If you find a small portion of these crackers extremely satisfying or you have higher energy needs, these keto crackers may be a great fit.
On the other hand, if you’re struggling with weight loss on keto, I’d suggest examining your fat intake. Foods like cheese, nuts, avocado, and added oils (including olive oil) pack a LOT of calories into a small volume. Cutting back on these high fat foods (while adding more lean protein and low carb veggies) may help with losing weight.
