Crispy Keto Crackers – Rosemary and Sea Salt

Crispy Keto Crackers – Rosemary and Sea Salt

After my Mum started on keto recently, she made a very accurate observation – many keto foods are lacking CRUNCH! I love texture in my food, and one of the things I missed the most was crackers to have on a cheese and dip platter. Anyone who has visited my house knows there will always be cheese and dip, and so keto crackers were a must have recipe.

These crackers are really simple and could be flavoured any way you want, but I love the combination of rosemary and sea salt. I find it just subtle enough to match with most cheese and dips, but you could very easily leave out the rosemary and add in some garlic powder, onion powder, thyme, oregano, cumin – whatever you want really! Keep the base recipe the same and you are pretty safe.

I grew up on cheese and crackers so having them back in my life was a big deal. Like, eat a whole batch of 30 crackers big deal. Finally, I had  a way to transport the joyous fats on something crispy and tasty, that wasn’t celery!

Tip For Crispy Keto Crackers

The key to getting these keto crackers CRISPY is to spread the flax seeds as thin as possible. This can be a little fiddly, but I’ve found using the back of a spoon to be the best way.

Flax seeds are super healthy for you as well, check out the article here if you’re interested:

Crispy Keto Crackers

Super simple, a handful of ingredients and ready in a flash, these crackers will become a staple on your cheese and dip platters and are even great for non-keto friends! 

Makes approx 25 - 30 crackers depending on the size

Prep Time 20 minutes
Cook Time 10 minutes
Total Time 30 minutes
Servings 25 crackers
Calories 39 kcal


  • 1 cup flax seeds
  • 2 tablespoons almond flour
  • 1 teaspoon salt
  • 1 teaspoon rosemary
  • 1/2 teaspoon pepper
  • 1 cup water


  1. Combine all ingredients except water in a small bowl, stirring to ensure everything is evenly incorporated. 

  2. Stir in the water and let sit for 15 - 20 minutes until the water is absorbed and the mix takes on a gelatinous texture. You can leave it to sit as long as you want - I've sometimes left it over night with out any issues!

  3. Tear two sheets of baking paper that will fit in your microwave. Spoon out half tablespoon balls of the seed mix onto the baking paper and spread out to your desired shape. The key is to spread this as thinly as possible without creating holes to get a really crispy cracker. 

  4. Microwave each batch for 2.5 - 3 minutes at 1000W until they smell toasty and are crispy. They will crispy up more upon cooling. 

  5. Work on spreading out one further batch while one is microwaving. 

  6. Serve with your favourite dips, cheeses and antipasto platters

i made some but they totally stuck to the baking paper. Will try again with greasing it. Taste was ok but didn't have enough rosemary.

Hi thanks for your feedback! I haven't had them stick to the baking paper before, I usually use Glad brand baking paper so maybe it is more non-stick? They are a relatively low flavour cracker so you can add flavouring to your preference :)

I made a batch today. Didn't have any rosemary so I left them plain, and in the top 8th of the cup I put chia seed. It worked really well, but the chia seeds stole all the water and I needed to add more. No problem. They took quite a few minutes in the microwave - flipping them onto another paper on the turntable, and they all crisped up nicely. Looking forward to trying them with some dip or nut butter. A really nice recipe, thank you Rachel! I'm new to this so the learning curve should be fun!

hi Karen! The number of servings is specified at the top of the recipe, it makes usually about 25 crackers so the nutrition panel is per cracker.

Could you use chia seeds?


Monday 4th of March 2019

You could but it may change the texture a bit - you could add them in as an extra but I'm not sure they would dry out as much as the flax seed does. Maybe try with a few tablespoons first so if it doesn't work, not much waste!
