Super crispy keto crackers that are perfect for dipping, smothering, or simply snacking.
With a flavor reminiscent of Cheez-Its, these low-carb parmesan and almond crackers are a hit—even with my kiddos. They have a fabulous, crispy texture and unlike many cheese-based crackers, they still pack that crunch days later! The best part? They’re totally keto-friendly. Woohoo!
Tips for making the best keto crackers:
- I’ve found that using freshly grated parmesan works much better than store-bought, pre-shredded varieties. Yes, it takes a bit of extra time, but trust me, it’s worth it!
- To crush the sliced almonds: Gently place them in the palm of your hand and squeeze slightly. The goal is to break the fine almond slices just a bit. Once crushed, the almonds should be similar in size to whole oats, certainly NOT a fine meal, so don’t get too crazy when you’re crushing.
- You can always switch these up by adding a fresh herb like dill or rosemary. A seasoning added to the top such as Everything But the Bagel seasoning would be so tasty, too!
Two ingredients. One net carb. 100% AMAZING!
The process is super simple, yet the reward is outstanding. A super low-carb cracker that takes 5 minutes to prep, bakes in 20 minutes, and is ready to eat within 10 minutes out of the oven.
Crispy Low Carb Parmesan Almond Crackers

Shredded parmesan and almond slices bake up for a crunchy keto snack!
- 1/2 cup sliced almonds, lightly crushed using your hands (not the roasted variety)
- 5 oz parmesan cheese block, finely shredded
Preheat oven to 350 degrees. Line a cookie sheet with parchment paper.
Spread half the parmesan cheese onto the prepared pan creating a rectangle that's approximately 8" x 14". Evenly sprinkle the gently crushed, sliced almonds over the cheese. Layer the remaining cheese over the almonds. Use your hands to push any stray bits into the rectangle forming an even edge.
Bake for 10 minutes (cheese will be bubbly and melting). Remove from oven. Allow crackers to rest for about 30 seconds. Using a pizza cutter, slice the dough first lengthwise, then widthwise. I usually make 4 cuts lengthwise and 8 cuts widthwise which results in 45 individual crackers. Gently separate each cracker.
Return to oven for 7-10 minutes until crackers begin to turn golden. Remove from oven. Place crackers on a cooling rack for 10 minutes and they will crisp as they cool.
Note: If your crackers are not crispy after cooling, you can return them to the oven for a few more minutes.
Once fully cooled, store crackers in an airtight container at room temperature.

GET EXCITED, because you just discovered the holy grail of keto munchy food! You can munch on these alone or serve them alongside your favorite low-carb dip. I also like to use these when creating a keto charcuterie board using Italian meats and cheeses, as a yummy party appetizer.
Here are a few of our favorite keto-friendly dips that would pair well with these keto crackers:
- Pimento Cheese Dip
- Spinach Dip
- Mexican Queso Dip
- Gooey Bacon Cheese Dip
- Spinach Artichoke Dip

These are really delish! Have you tried any other cheese combinations fir this recipe?

Oh My Gosh! Thank you! Thank you! for the chip recipes. I keep falling off keto wanting “crunch” that didn’t take HOURS to make.
You are so welcome!
We are quarantined and I only have almond meal and bagged Parmesan. Is it worth it to try?
Good question! You could always try a small test batch to see how it might turn out for you. Let us know if it works out well!
I would say yes! It’s all I have at the moment too.
I have trouble digesting nuts, especially almonds. Is there anything else I can add to the parmesan, to make parmesan crisps? Thanks☺ I am really struggling with the keto diet, as I can’t eat a lot of vegetables and nuts.
Hi Stefanie! You could leave out and add a fresh herb or seasoning. The seasoning tip is listed above. This would give you a cheese crisp. Here is a similar option- https://hip2keto.com/recipes/easy-cheese-crisps-keto-snack/
Hope that helps!
These are so easy to make and very tasty!
Thanks a bunch for commenting, Sharon! Happy you have enjoyed them!
How much ahead for an event could I make these and how should they be stored? Thanks.
Hi Cynthia! They should be fine for a day or two on the counter, in a loosely-sealed bag. Hope this is helpful!
Love these!! Finally, a crispy cracker that doesn’t taste mealy!! So much better than just other Keto cracker recipes and an upgrade to plain Parmesan crisps!!! Thanks for the recipe!!
So glad you enjoyed these! I love making these crackers!
hi, would like to ask how long this can be kept in an airtight container? thanks
I make these all the time! You can store them up to a week, but mine never last that long.
About to make a second batch. These things are awesome!!
Yay! They are one of my favorites!
Love this! How do I rate this recipe? It deserves a 5 star! Do you have a tip on keeping the crackers from sticking to the parchment? That was my challenge.
You can spray it with Pam or brush the parchment with oil first. So glad you loved this! You can rate the recipe by clicking on the starts at the very top of the recipe.
Thank you so much for sharing this recipe. We make these almost every week since we discovered it a couple of months ago and I always double the recipe. They don’t last long ( can’t keep them hidden from hubby and daughter)
SO glad they have been a hit in your home, FC! Thanks for stopping by to let us know you’ve all enjoyed them!
Just made 2 batches for our road trip! Love how easy & yummy these are, thank you!!!
Yay! You’re welcome, Tiffany! Thanks for the feedback!
I made these today. Delicious! But I found the pizza cutter did not do a good job, so I grabbed the kithenshears. They worked great.
Yay! SO glad you enjoyed them! Great idea to use the Kitchen shears!
