This easy Keto crackers recipe is made with coconut flour and topped with sharp cheddar and fragrant, fresh thyme. Perfect as a satiating low carb snack or as a crunchy, grain free side for a salad or soup.
These coconut flour crackers have been a staple in out kitchen for several years. Actually, it’s one of the first Keto crackers recipe I created when I started eating sugar free and low carb. We’ve served it at dinner parties and I’ve even made it at a yoga retreat where I was cheffing and it always gets the thumbs up. Friends, EVERYONE likes cheesy crackers!
Most low carb crackers recipes are made with almond flour, like these equally yummy almond low carb crackers. Some people cannot tolerate almond flour though, so these coconut flour crackers are the perfect alternative!
Coconut flour is, of course, astonishingly good for you. Read more about the health benefits of coconut flour here. The only thing is that it DOES have a gentle coconut taste, which is why it’s a favourite for sweet recipes.
I can assure you that this Keto crackers recipe does not taste of coconut AT ALL.
How? Well, this recipe contains a fair amount of cheese – a mix of cheddar and parmesan. Combined with the thyme, these flavours are so prominent you’ll have NO IDEA there’s even a sliver of coconut flour in these crackers!
How to make cheesy Keto coconut flour crackers – step by step:
1.) Combine the coconut flour, butter, egg, cheddar and parmesan in a bowl and mix until you have a smooth dough. You can do this by hand or with an electric mixer / food processor.
Let the mixture rest for a few minutes so the coconut flour can absorb the moisture.
2.) Form 8 balls and press them down on a baking sheet lined with parchment paper.
3.) Top with the remaining 1/4 cup of grated cheddar and fresh thyme leaves. Bake for 12-15 minutes until the low carb crackers are nicely browned and the cheese has melted and crisped up. That’s it!
Tips and tricks to make this Keto crackers recipe taste the way you love
Make sure you flatten your crackers properly. The flatter they are, the crispier they will become.
You don’t need to use fresh thyme (although it tastes divine). If you have dried thyme in your kitchen cupboard that will do nicely too.
Feel like tweaking the recipe? Try using different spices such as rosemary or make spicy Keto crackers by adding paprika and a pinch of chilli or cayenne pepper.
You can sub the parmesan for pecorino if you prefer, it gives a saltier, very tasty touch to the recipe.
If you are NOT after a crispy texture, you could adapt this recipe and make Keto cheesy biscuits instead. Simply add 1 tsp of baking powder and form 4 larger biscuit shapes instead of the 8 crackers. They will be soft and fluffy on the inside!
