A crispy keto cracker that will have you reaching for more!
This sour cream and chive keto cracker recipe is so delicious that I’ve already made two batches. Finally, a low-carb cracker that is full of flavor and has an actual crunch to it!
It’s the perfect keto snack when you want to grab something to take with you on the go.
I love a keto recipe that is super simple and required minimal ingredients. Now you can make delicious and crunchy keto crackers at home – and have yourself a handful for only 1 net carb!
Don’t get me wrong, I sure do love Whisps but they can get costly, plus, let’s face it, not a whole lot comes in the bag. Even better, you can make as many of these crackers as you want for under $10, and I personally think they taste better too!
Tips for making the best sour cream & chive keto crackers:
- For this recipe, I’ve made my own sour cream and chive seasoning which can be used on anything! Pork King Good also has their own sour cream and chive pork rinds you can crush and use if you want to save some time. Either way, this seasoning makes everything so flavorful!
- You can use any leftover sour cream and chive seasoning on our keto cauliflower mash, roasted veggies, or even on chicken breasts or a roast. There are so many possibilities!
- To crush the sliced almonds, I used a food processor and just pulsed them two times. You can also 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.
- I love the flavor that these keto crackers hold, but if you would like to try out your own seasoning then consider adding taco seasoning or your favorite keto-friendly seasoning! There is no wrong way to season these crackers.
- I would recommend using freshly grated Parmesan cheese, but if you’re in a pinch pre-shredded Parmesan cheese will work as well. I will say the pre-shredded Parmesan cheese should be baked just a little longer, about 3 minutes more.

Delicious sour cream & chive keto crackers packed with crunch, and made with parmesan cheese and a few simple ingredients!
- 10 oz. parmesan cheese, finely shredded
- 1 cup sliced almonds, crushed in a food processor
Sour Cream & Chive Seasoning:
- 2 tablespoons dried milk
- 2 teaspoons onion powder
- 1 teaspoon garlic powder
- 1 teaspoon dill weed
- 1 tablespoon dried chives
- 1/2 teaspoon salt
- 1 teaspoon parsley
- 1/2 teaspoon monk fruit sweetener
Preheat oven to 350 degrees. Line a baking sheet with parchment paper.
In a small bowl, mix together sour cream and chive seasoning ingredients and set aside.
In a large bowl, add crushed sliced almonds, shredded parmesan cheese, and 2 tablespoons of sour cream and chive seasoning. Toss together making sure everything is mixed well.
Pour mixture over lined baking sheet creating a rectangle. Use your hands to push any stray bits into the rectangle forming an even edge.
Bake for 12 minutes until cheese is bubbly and melting. Remove from the oven and allow the crackers to rest for about 1 minute.
Use a pizza cutter and slice the crackers, first lengthwise, then widthwise. Gently separate each cracker. Return to the oven to bake for an additional 7 minutes or until golden brown in spots.
Remove from the oven and place crackers on a cooling rack until cooled.
Store in a sealed container. Enjoy!

Get your crunch on!
There’s nothing better than biting into a snack that packs a crunch, and these keto crackers sure do deliver it. I love using them to combine with our yummy keto dips like pimento cheese, spinach artichoke, or our everything but the bagel seasoning cheese ball! YUMMO!
Here’s what my teammate Jenna had to say after making these sour cream & chives keto crackers:
“I’m already a huge fan of our parmesan almond crackers, and these sour cream and chive crackers are totally tasty too! I love this new twist on a classic flavor, it’s just so dang good! I love the fun addition of the sour cream and onion flavor, and using the dried milk is brilliant. These are awesome and I give them two thumbs up!”
Question, what can be substituted for the dry milk?? Thank You!
We don’t have a substitute that we have tried for this recipe. The dry milk definitely adds to the sour cream flavor. You could try omitting it, but you may lose flavor.
There’s no sour cream in the list of ingredients. Am I missing something?
You aren’t missing a thing! They taste like sour cream with the spice combination listed above! These are yummy.
Could a different nut be used in place of the almonds?
We haven’t tried that. The almonds are good because the slices help hold the cracker together. I think other nuts are too soft. If you do try, please let us know!
I’m just making these now and they smell so good! I am not sure what or when (or if!) I am to add the additional seasoning as the instructions say to just add two tablespoons. Help…!!
Hi there! You will add the 2 tbsp. of sour cream & chive seasoning mix to your ingredients and mix well. The left over can be used as a dip OR check out the tips above for other ideas to use the leftover seasoning mix. Hope this helps!
What size baking sheet did you use?
Hi Janice! It looks like an 11×17 would work for this. Hope that helps!
Thanks! Can’t wait to try this recipe.
Sorry, I’m probably missing something. The pre-recipe post says that we can have “a handful” of these crackers for “only 1 net carb.” The recipe nutrition facts say 5.5 net carbs per 1/2 cup. What kind of tiny hands do you folks have??
LOL! Thanks for the feedback, Aces. It would be a “small” handful.
Maybe its been answered, but about how many crackers for one net carb? Or, how many crackers in 1/2 cup? thanks!
Hi Kathy! It is 11 crackers. Enjoy!
I was wondering if almond flour could be used in place of the almonds?
Hey Lins! That could work, however we haven’t tried it. It would change the nutrition. You could do 1 cup almond flour and you might need to increase the Parmesan cheese by a 1/4 cup or so. Let us know how they turn out! 🤗❤️
