How Many Carbs per Serving Are in Low Carb Keto Crackers?
Because of using only keto-friendly ingredients, the carb content of crackers is the best news. Depending on how big you cut your crackers and how many crackers you will be able to make, carb content can change slightly. As you see in my video, I cut them pretty big and got approximately 50 pieces. Divided this into 8 portions, each of which came to about 6 to 7 crackers.
Having this in mind, a whole portion gets 2 grams of carbs. Considering fiber to calculate net carbs per serving, you get 1 net carb for 6 crackers. How awesome.
How To Make Low Carb Crackers?
As you might have seen in my previous posts, I do not use the microwave for making the fathead dough. I prefer to make it on the stove. That way, I can control the temperature and speed of cheese melting. And the fathead dough comes every single time perfect.

STEP-BY-STEP INSTRUCTIONS TO MAKE KETO CRACKERS WITH SESAME
First Step: Ingredients
Prepare all ingredients for crispy crackers.
2 ingredients in fathead dough are essential: cheese and flour. Everything else can be altered. I have even made breadsticks not using eggs.
I use almond flour in most fathead recipes because of its light texture and minimal flavor.
Second Step: Prepare the Fathead dough
Melt the mozzarella cheese in a pot until smooth and fully melted. Check the video for a better understanding.
Third Step: Add Almonds
Add almond meal or flour.
Combine the almond flour with your spatula until the almonds are combined fully and properly into a soft dough. At this time you can add herbs, garlic in our case.
Fourth Step: Add Egg
Once your cracker dough is blended, add an egg and keep incorporating it into the dough. It takes a while to mix it all, but the time is worth it.
Fifth Step: Roll out the dough
Once you have worked the dough, place it onto a piece of parchment paper or a silicone sheet and roll it with your baking roller until completely thin. I like to shape it into one big square, which is much easier to cut into smaller pieces.
Make sure the square is not bigger than your baking sheet. Otherwise, you would have some left-out pieces.
If you can not get the perfect shape, no worry. Just take the piece which is sticking out and roll it into the dough again until thin.
Sixth Step: Brush with Egg
Once you are happy with the square shape, take a small bowl and add 1 egg to it. With your fork, mix it thoroughly, and with a baking brush, brush it all over the entire dough.
Seventh Step: Sprinkle sesame seeds
Now it’s time to sprinkle the sesame seeds. I do not save on those, as we love baked sesame seeds. I try to cover the rolled-out dough fully. It will help if you press the seeds onto the dough, so they do not fall out after baking.
With the egg mixture on top of the dough, most of them are already holding.
Eighth Step: Cut the Fathead dough
Make the shapes and sizes you wish with your pizza or pastry cutter. I love making little diamond shapes, but triangles or squares are also delicate. Here, it depends on your imagination. Just try to cut crackers into even shapes.
Ninth Step: Bake
Move the dough onto a baking sheet and bake in your oven.
Once baked, let the crackers cool completely, and break them into pieces with your hands. They are already pre-cut, so this is not a problem, and they break easily.
Tips and Tricks for Almond Flour Crackers
- Almond flour – If you grain almonds yourself, I suggest using already peeled almonds. That way, you will get perfectly light dough to work with.
- Cheese – As you see, I have used hard white cheese, but you can experiment with cheddar cheese or parmesan cheese for that extra sharpness.
- Do you want to make everything bagel crackers? Add some garlic powder, onion flakes, hemp hearts, caraway seeds, poppy seeds, sea salt, and sesame seeds.
Can I Use Different Seeds To Make Crackers?
Of course, you can. Add any seeds you like, be it chia, sunflower, poppy, hemp, or anything you love. It will not be any more sesame keto crackers recipes but your own.
Can I Substitute Almond Flour for Coconut Flour?
Some people are allergic to tree nuts or almonds; therefore, you can swap it for coconut flour or any seed flour.
Just be careful with the amount. Coconut flour is way drier, and you only need a quarter of it instead of almond flour.
And as a benefit, it is low in carbs, mainly because you add much less.
Can I Swap Cheese for Cheddar?
You can swap mozzarella for cheddar, parmesan, or any other hard cheese without a problem.

What To Serve With Easy Keto Cracker Recipe?

- Ranch dressing
- Pine cone cheese ball
- Green goddess dressing
- Guacamole dip
- Keto avocado egg salad
My Fathead Dough Is Too Sticky To Roll. What To Do?
I suggest adding more almond flour. In this case, knead the dough a little longer until it comes together.
Another suggestion is to use parchment paper on top of the dough to roll it out. In that way, it will not stick. Once rolled, gently peel the top parchment paper.
Can I Make This Gluten Free Cheese Cracker Recipe Using Dehydrator?
I once had this question from one of our readers, which made me think of adding it here, in case you wonder.
You can make crackers in the dehydrator, and I have also made some crackers there. But not those particular ones.
Here I would be cautious about the eggs in the mixture. They would not bake, and your crackers might be soft and mushy. But I have also made a fathead dough without eggs, and I suggest using those recipes.
Can I Make a Low Carb Cracker Using a Microwave?
Not with this recipe, since mozzarella is involved, it will melt mozzarella again, and you will lose shape. If you leave it longer, it will harden fully, and the softness will disappear.
How Do I Make Make Those Crackers Crispy Even More?
Every oven is different, and therefore your crackers might not be crunchy at the end.
But don’t worry, Just put them back in the oven for a bit longer at a lower temperature. This will take the moisture out and make it crispy keto crackers.
Also, your dough might have been rolled thicker, so you would need more time in the oven. Keep watching it, so you do not miss that one second when they become burned. (talking from my own experience)
Although not very healthy, one perfect idea is to deep fry them after cutting them for a few seconds. This will give them complete crispiness if that’s what you aim for.
My Fathead Crackers Have Become Soft.
Are they not crunchy anymore? Not a problem. Just pop them again into the oven for a few minutes. I always do this when I need to remember to store them properly.
Make sure you store them in an airtight container. Otherwise, they will soften in no time.
How Long Do Those Best Low Carb Crackers Last?
If stored properly, they last for a very long time. I had some batches kept even for a month or longer, and they still came out perfectly crispy.
When you still have lots of sesame seeds left, there is a great sweet version you can try – our sugar-free sesame brittle bars.
Are There Store Bought Crackers on the Market?
There are already so many keto products you can get ready-made crackers. Some are Keto naturals, Innofoods keto crackers, Hu, Quest, Slim Fast, and many more.
But to be honest, there is nothing you can compare to homemade food. It’s not only the freshest you can get, but you use the best ingredients because you choose them. You do not add anything extra to keep them last longer because you do not need to. And they are done in no time. So why spends so much money on store-bought?
