Although I’m not a big snacker (I usually prefer 3 square meals a day) sometimes it is nice to supplement lunches or have snack foods ready for game days. Pork rinds are a great keto-friendly option but some people do not care for the taste, so I set out to create a simple cracker recipe that can be tweaked in terms of flavors. It is surprisingly easy to make low carb crackers that are perfect for use with a variety of dips and salsas or to eat plain on their own. It only takes a few ingredients to make the dough; I will also provide options for substitutions near the bottom of the post, too.
Next I measured out the sour cream using my food scale and added it to the bowl with the almond flour.
I made two styles of crackers using this dough by splitting it in half and cooking it in 2 batches. I placed half of the dough on parchment paper, covered with another sheet of parchment and used my rolling pin to roll it out paper thin. The thin crackers are great chip replacements but may break if you want to use them with dip. I then used a knife to score the dough into mini squares, about the size of Cheez-Its. The first batch made approximately 50 crackers and baked for 40 minutes; they came out nice and crispy.
I followed the same procedure of rolling the dough between two sheets of parchment and scoring it into small squares; this batch made approximately 30 crackers and baked for 60 minutes. Be careful when breaking them apart after cooking – the thinner they are, the more fragile they will be. I prefer the texture of the thin crackers myself. They are very light and crunchy and would even be great as a crouton replacement on a salad. In place of sour cream and chives you could make garlic and herb crackers with a variety of seasonings, cheddar crackers with shredded cheddar cheese or Italian crackers using shredded/grated parmesan cheese and chopped garlic. For each of these, use an egg instead of the sour cream to hold the dough together. Any of them would be just as easy to make and would be full of flavor. You could also cut the crackers into larger sizes to eat with sliced cheeses and meats, too! What are your favorite kinds of crackers? Let me know in the comments below!
