I mean, crackers are crumbly, salty, buttery goodness aren’t they? Once I get started a whole sleeve of Ritz can evaporate in minutes. I’m left staring numbly at the empty box wondering how crumbs got on my lips. Then I feel guilty and horrible because I caved. It’s awful.

Well, no more. No more because these homemade cracker recipe is the bomb-digity. The crackers are buttery and crumbly AND they are great spread with peanut butter or cream cheese or butter or a slice of cheddar. Best of all they are VERY low carb. In fact one of them has just 0.7 net carbs. That’s almost nothing, y’all.

The other thing about them is that they are self limiting. There is no way you can sit down and eat a dozen of these. The high fiber content means that you get filled up fast. You can blend these up to use as cracker crumbs if you want in any recipe that calls for cracker crumbs. If you want to flavor them you can add a little garlic powder or smoked paprika or sprinkle a cinnamon-xylitol mixture on the top.  I just love how versatile they are!

Since they contain coconut flour they will get soft if you don’t keep them tightly covered in the pantry. This is especially true if you live in a humid area. One thing I would suggest is rolling the dough into a log and wrapping it in waxed paper. You can then keep it in the fridge and just slice off as much as you need. That way they’ll be fresh and crisp.

Enjoy!

Parchment is handy to have especially when you are doing low carb baking. It keeps dough from sticking while you are working with it AND after it’s baked. This parchment paper is precut into baking sheet sizes to save even more time.

  1. How do I keep my crackers crispy days after baking them? They seem to go soft the day after.

    Reply
    • I’m having the same problem so I’m not real sure. I think I am going to start freezing the cut out dough and only baking enough for one day at a time.

  2. Hi! This sounds (and looks) delish!
    I live in the Netherlands and all I can find here is hemp SEED. Can I use that?
    I just luvv your cookie cutter, I used to live in
    Canada and my heart turns over at every Maple Leaf I see. Did you by any chance get them at Amazon? I’m gearin up to place an order there and would love to include them.

    Reply
    • You should be able to order from Amazon.

    • I used hemp seed in place of hemp hearts, and they were awesome!

  3. These look great! Are there any substitutes for the hemp hearts? Psyllium, chia or flax seeds maybe?
    Thank you

    • You could probably use any of those but the texture would change.

  4. So, a serving, 76 calories, is one cracker?

    Reply
    • Depends on how big you make them but yes.

  5. Can you tell me what a serving size is? 1/10th of the recipe? Or how many servings does this recipe make?

    Reply
    • The entire recipe is 25.2 net carbs so it depends on how big you cut the crackers. I got 36 crackers so each cracker was 1.42 net carbs.. but if you cut them smaller it would be less carbs… if you cut them bigger then it would be more carbs.
