When many people first start thinking about trying out the keto diet, they naturally start to think of all the obvious carb heavy foods that will have to go. Things like bread, chips, crackers, etc. And unfortunately, many people give up on the keto diet before even getting started because they mistakenly assume that they will indeed have to give up their favorite foods, like those listed above. If that sounds like you, stop! As I’m about to show you guys today, you can indeed have your cake and eat it too. Or in this case, you can have your cheese keto crackers and eat them too.
I’m especially fond of this particular cracker recipe because of the excellent mix of ingredients that goes into making the crackers. You’ll actually be using Parmesan cheese as your weapon of choice to give the crackers their distinctive cheesy flavor.

How to Make Low Carb Cheese Keto Crackers
To get started, you’ll want to put two cups of grated Parmesan cheese and two ounces of cream cheese in a bowl and then microwave it for approximately 60 seconds. Take the bowl out and mix in one whole egg. Next, add in one cup of almond flour, ½ teaspoon of garlic powder, ½ teaspoon of sea salt and mix everything until it’s well combined.
Use two parchment sheets and roll out your dough mixture until it’s about ⅙” thick, then transfer the dough onto a baking pan. Bake it at 400°F for about 8-10 minutes, just long enough for it to become golden brown and crispy.
You’ll want to let the crackers cool off for about five minutes before cutting them into squares.
Low Carb Cracker Substitutions
I love this low carb cracker recipe because I’m such a huge fan of Parmesan cheese in general. However, I can definitely understand that not everyone is as crazy about its distinctive taste as I am.
If you want to make your own easy cheesy keto crackers but you’re not hearing the Parmesan, you can definitely swap it out and use your favorite variety instead. I quite like making cheddar cheese keto crackers myself! Gouda would also make a tasty addition.
