It seems like a no-brainer to have a keto cheese cracker recipe in one’s arsenal. It’s tough sometimes to get th balance and keep the true to the original crispy, flour-based version, but this recipe comes close. Personally, I like these even better, even when after they’ve lost their original crispness. Their extra cheesiness more than makes up for it.

Imitation Cheez-It Keto Cheese Crackers Recipe



  1. Preheat oven to 400 degrees. In a small mixing bowl, whisk together almond flour and Himalayan pink sea salt. Add beaten egg and stir with a spatula until well-combined.

  2. In a microwave-safe bowl, microwave cheddar, mozzarella, and cream cheese in 20 second bursts until melted. Add melted cheeses to dry ingredients and mix together with spatula until fully-incorporated. If the dough becomes too difficult to work with, return all ingredients to microwave-safe bowl and microwave for 7-10 seconds.

  3. Spray two pieces of parchment paper with cooking spray. Silicon mats work okay too, but parchment paper seems to work better. Lay one piece down, spray side up, on a cookie sheet, placing dough in center. Lay the other piece down, spray side down so it touches the dough, and lightly press down. Roll dough with a rolling pin to form a thin, even layer. Remove and discard the top piece of parchment paper.

  4. Using a pizza cutter or a large knife gently cut crackers to desired size. Sprinkle coarse salt on top of dough. Bake crackers for 10 minutes.

  5. Remove crackers from oven and allow to cool slightly. Using a spatula, flip and separate all the crackers over and move the ones from the outer edge to the middle and vice versa to promote even cooking. You may need to re-cut some of the crackers as if they melted together while baking. Sprinkle flaky sea salt over the crackers. Return crackers to oven and bake for another 7-10 minutes, or until edges of crackers have browned.

  6. Remove from oven and allow to cool completely before putting them in a container to store at room temperature. They should keep for 4-5 days depending on the weather. If they get soft, give them a quick toast in a toaster oven to revive them to their former crispness.
