Sharing is caring!

Keto Garlic Cheese Crackers are the perfect way to end a hard day. While mindless eating isn’t the goal here, it is nice to treat yourself to a crunch snack before bed! 

Sometimes I miss the crunchy things, and by things I mean carbs. Long gone are the days when I can walk into a store and scream “take my money” as I pull boxes of crackers off the shelf like they’re going out style. Thankfully I don’t have to spend all day in the kitchen with this 6 ingredient keto cheese cracker recipe! 

Now, if you are feeding kiddos and you really want to get creative you could try turning these into little animal shapes, but I’ll leave that up to you! 

Keto Garlic Cheese Crackers Recipe: 


Carbohydrate Substitutes for the Keto Diet:

Cutting down on carbohydrates with the keto diet is easy when you see the wide variety of proteins and vegetables that are on the acceptable foods list.

However, it does take some time and adjustment to get used to this new way of eating. A lot of the American diet centers around complex carbohydrate foods like bread and pasta.

Snack foods are full of sugars and refined carbohydrates. This new way of eating will challenge your old habits. However, there are many carbohydrate substitutes that can fill in the gap and help you adhere to this new way of eating. 

Keto Sugar: 

Some of the most popular replacement items are sugar substitutes.

Try each type of sugar replacement because you can react differently to different sugars. My sugar of choice is Stevia but my husband says it’s bitter.

Keto-friendly sugars can be helpful in baking low-carbohydrate treats and making things taste sweet without risking sugar use. However, some people find that using artificial sweeteners makes them crave sugar even more.

If you find you want more sweet treats after drinking a diet soda or eating a snack made with Splenda, its best to eliminate them entirely from your diet. 

Keto Breads: 

Bread is the number one challenge that keto dieters face when looking at their new diet plans. Bread is a staple food for many people, and eliminating it can be somewhat of a problem. There are some low carb options available out there, but you have to watch for hidden carbohydrates and other unacceptable ingredients.

If you are ambitious, you can try making your own bread out of almond flour or coconut flour. You will find lots of recipes here just for that purpose! 

Keto Pasta: 

Many people say that they love pasta, but people very rarely eat it plain. The best part about pasta is the topping. So taking those toppings (meat, cheese, and vegetables) and try putting them over a keto-approved pasta! 

Squash makes a terrific pasta substitute. Spaghetti squash, a yellow-orange gourd with stringy insides, is a natural base for homemade meat sauce.

Zucchini is also a good pasta substitute. You can grate in into fine pieces or chunk it up into sections to act as a base for sauces.

Lasagna is easily made with large pieces of eggplant as a substitute for the noodles. The meats and cheeses used in lasagna are low-carb so there’s nothing to worry about there.

Keto Rice: 

Another common problem for keto dieters is finding a good substitute for rice. One popular solution is to use cauliflower. Simply place the cauliflower florets in a food processor and chop them until they are rice sizes pieces. Then microwave the rice without water. The pieces will come out fluffy and ready to be used in casseroles or as part of a side dish.

Keto Potato: 

Cauliflower is also a popular potato substitute for keto dieters. This time, puree the cauliflower until it is smooth and creamy, just like mashed potatoes. You can add your favorite low-carb topping to it like bacon, sour cream, and cheese.

Keto Pizza: 

Pizza is a favorite food for many people, but there are keto-friendly solutions for homemade pizzas that taste just as good.

You can make small pizzas using low-carb tortillas as the crust. You can also use the same method with large Portobello mushrooms. If the alternative crust options don’t sound good to you, you can also try a pizza casserole with all of the ingredient layered in a casserole dish.

These substitutes will help you avoid indulging in your high-carb favorites while on the keto diet.

Keto Garlic Cheese Crackers Ingredients:

Makes 6 servings
3 Net carbs/serving

1 3/4 C. Cheddar blend cheese (We used the new Taco Bell 7 cheese blend)
3 oz. Cream cheese softened
1 C. Almond flour
1 tsp. Garlic powder
Pinch of salt
1 Egg
Parchment paper

Keto Garlic Cheese Crackers Directions:

1. Preheat the oven to 450 degrees.

2. Place the shredded cheese and cream cheese into a microwave-safe bowl. Microwave at 30-second intervals, stopping to stir in between until the cheese is completely melted and well blended.

3. Add the almond flour, pinch of salt and garlic powder to the cheese mixture, and knead it well with your hands until completely combined.
4. Beat in the egg until the mixture forms a soft batter.

5. Wrap up the dough in plastic wrap, and place it into the fridge for at least 30 minutes. Doing this will help to make the dough less sticky, and will make it easier to roll out.
6. Place the chilled dough in the center of a large piece of parchment paper, and place another large piece of parchment paper on top of it.
7. Roll the dough out thinly, but not too thin. The crackers will puff up a bit as they cook.
8. Use a pizza cutter or a sharp knife to cut the dough into individual cracker shapes.
9. Carefully peel the cracker shapes off of the parchment paper, and place them onto a baking sheet lined with more parchment paper, with a little space separating each individual cracker.

10. Bake for 4-5 minutes until browned and crispy.

11. Keto crackers are best eaten fresh, but you can store uneaten crackers in an airtight container in the fridge. Keep in mind that stored crackers will likely lose their crispiness.
