Easy Keto crackers with simple ingredients are here. They can be easy but some creativity always adds improvement. For sure, if you are preparing crackers, this means you have reached the maintenance phase. Keto baked goods are acceptable in this phase, but some basic principles need to remain. Namely, we need to keep the carbs low. Additionally, we can keep the fat moderate or be relaxed with it. As long as we use eggs as a base for Keto crackers, most of our problems are solved. Finally, all we need to achieve is to thicken the dough, scoop out small shapes and bake them.
Easy Keto crackers, as quick as you want them to be
Imagine, you can fix the dough for these easy Keto crackers in just 2 minutes. Furthermore, you can bake them in 12 minutes. However, why should you count the minutes so strictly? Relax, if you are in a hurry, you wouldn’t be baking easy Keto crackers at all. Then again, if you want to try this simple recipe, this means you are curious and inspired. Naturally, if they look attractive to you, you might wonder how come something so simple can end up looking so good. Well, it’s all a product of experimentation.

What about the seeds? You pick what works for you!
For me, seeds work better than nuts in baked goods, especially in Keto crackers. However, not everybody can tolerate all kinds of seeds. Some of them are milder and easier to digest. So, you can pick those and make your own mixture. As long as you have something crunchy to give the “crack” feeling when you eat them. For these easy Keto crackers, I will give you all the ingredients I used. However, you can be creative and change them to your liking and tolerance. Make sure your dough is thick enough to be scoopable with a teaspoon and that’s all. You don’t have to shape them or make your hands dirty. Lastly, if you follow the recipe as closely as possible, there’s no chance of failure!
Easy Keto crackersCourse: Appetizers
6 hen eggs (I used 20 quail eggs)
1/2 tsp sea salt
1/2 tsp baking soda
1 tbsp apple cider vinegar
2 tbsp psyllium powder
2 tbsp coconut flour
1 handful of mixed seeds of your choice (I used sesame, black sesame, pumpkin and flaxseed mix)
4 tbsp extra virgin olive oil
1 tsp dried rosemary (or any Mediterranean herb you like)
- Beat the eggs with salt, baking soda and vinegar till you get a fluffy and foamy mixture. Add olive oil and keep beating.
- Add psyllium and coconut flour. Now switch to hand mixing with a whisk. The dough will start thickening because psyllium and coconut flour will absorb the liquid. If the dough gets too dry, add some warm water.
- Now add a handful of mixed seeds and dried rosemary. Use any seeds you like. Mix a bit more with a whisk.
- Line a baking pan with parchment paper and preheat the oven to 200ºC (400ºF). Scoop approximately 30 crackers with a teaspoon out of your dough. Place them on the parchment paper.
- Bake your Keto crackers for exactly 12 minutes and then remove them from the oven. Allow them to cool down before serving.
- Easy Keto cracker dough needs to be soft but thick. The best way to test this is to scoop a little bit of the mixture and see if it sticks to the spoon even when you flip it upside down. ideally, you will use 2 teaspoons. One to scoop the dough and the other to slide it to the parchment paper.
- If you don’t have psyllium powder or husk, use ground flaxseed or chia seeds.
- Don’t try to substitute coconut flour with almond flour, the purpose here is to thicken the dough. Coconut flour has the ability to absorb liquids fast.
- Sometimes psyllium thickens the dough too much. In this case, adding some warm water can greatly help.
- Don’t worry about the number of crackers you’ll get. Try to scoop very small amounts of dough because they will also grow during baking. Make each cracker approximately the size of an almond before baking.
