These Cheezits-like Keto Crunchy Cheese Crackers will completely satisfy your salty and crunchy craving!


When I first started the keto diet, I was dying for a crunchy snack like chips, popcorn, or crackers. Well, this recipe takes care of that!


I tried a variety of chip and cracker recipes, but most of them didn’t provide that crispy crunch I was looking for.


Then, this recipe happened, by mistake actually!


I accidentally left out a key ingredient, cream cheese, on a different recipe, and the finished product was shockingly good!


Leaving out the cream cheese gave these cheese crackers an authentic Cheezit flavor and crunch. It was a keeper!

The recipe calls for 2 cups of cheese, but it’s up to you to figure out your favorite combination of cheesy flavors. I’ve tried a few different variations, but equal parts, Sharp Cheddar to Parmesan Cheese ratio, provides the best Cheezit flavor.

How to Make Keto Crunchy Cheese Crackers

To begin, combine the cheddar cheese, parmesan cheese, and almond flour in a microwave-safe bowl. Alternate heating for 30 seconds and stirring until you have a cheese dough ball. If you don’t want to use the microwave, you can melt this in a non-stick pot over medium-low heat, stirring regularly.

Next, add the salt and egg and mix thoroughly by hand, squishing the dough between your fingers. It’s sticky and messy, but effective 😉


A word of caution, the cheese dough will be quite hot. Let it cool a bit, so it doesn’t burn your hands while mixing, but not so much that the cheese turns hard.

Roll the dough between two pieces of parchment paper into a thin layer. Use a pizza cutter to cut the dough into small squares. I found that I had to divide into two batches to spread it thin enough.


Transfer the crackers, still on the parchment paper, to a baking sheet.

Bake at 420 degrees F for 7-9 minutes, or until they begin to brown. Remove from oven and let cool. If they aren’t as crispy as you like, flip over the crackers and cook for an additional 3-5 minutes.
