Delicious, crispy low carb cheese crackers prove once and for all that even on a low carb diet you can enjoy tasty crunchy snacks.
These low carb cheese crackers are amazing! They’re ready in five minutes, and the only ingredient you need is cheese.
They are crispy and delicious and obviously healthier than highly processed, store-bought cheese crackers that contain flour and who knows how many chemicals and additives.
You can bake these low carb cheese crackers in the oven (350 degrees F, 12 minutes), which is just as easy but a bit more time consuming. I usually use the microwave, especially when I’m making just a few crackers.
To make these crackers, you can either use a standard 1-oz cheese slice and cut it into four squares, or you can use shredded cheese and measure one tablespoon per cracker. Both methods work equally well.
It’s true that you can buy low carb cheese crackers – Moon Cheese, for example, but these specialized low carb snacks are expensive. It’s much cheaper to make these crackers at home.
Many people on a low carb or keto diet complain that they miss crunchy snacks. But with these tasty crackers and pork rinds, really there’s no reason to complain.
Even if you don’t need to avoid wheat or gluten, you should give these low carb cheese crackers a try – they are addictive!
Watch the video to see how easy it is to make these low carb cheese crackers in the microwave:
Low Carb Cheese Crackers
- 4 tablespoons shredded cheddar, OR one (1 oz) slice sharp cheddar
- Place the four mounds of cheese on parchment (not wax) paper. Slightly flatten. Make sure they are 1-2 inches apart. If using a cheese slice, cut it into four squares.
- Place the parchment paper directly on the microwave glass tray and microwave on high for 1:30-2 minutes, until lacy and lightly browned. In my microwave it takes 1:30 minutes.
- Allow the crackers to cool for a few seconds, blot the excess oil with a paper towel and enjoy.
