About These Low Carb Crackers
Let’s be honest, the name of this low carb crackers recipe is slightly off putting — for the record, I know neither of us are fatheads. It’s actually the name of a movie/website that created and popularize fathead pizza. Since they started this trend, which took off throughout the low carb community, foodies have converted this crustless pizza into all sorts of low carb recipes.
So here’s my take on fathead crackers. This recipe is totally different than the other fathead crackers you’ll find on the web, as I morphed the traditional fathead pizza dough with a recipe for cream cheese crackers from Epicurious.
Here’s what makes these fathead crackers different, and dare I stay, way tastier!
- These fathead crackers don’t have eggs as an ingredient. More room for cheese with every bite!
- This recipe is for sliceable fathead crackers — bake only as much as you’d like and store the rest in the freezer for the next time you’re craving something crunchy.
- Everything But the Bagel Season, my favorite low carb seasoning, makes for a delicious crunchy coat and crispy fathead crackers!
- For these fathead crackers coconut flour is not an ingredient — which means these crackers wont taste dry like other keto crackers coconut flour!
What You Should Know About These Keto Crackers
I don’t know whether it’s the crunch, the salt, or the butter, but sometimes the only thing that’ll satiate my cravings is a cracker — and this munchable keto crackers recipe is the perfect fit! That said, these fathead crackers are slightly different from ritz crackers, here’s what to expect and how to perfect them:
- Fathead crackers aren’t as crunchy as regular crackers. It’s nearly impossible to make these fathead crackers crunchy without burning them to a crisp. I LOVE the seeds around the edge as I find they satiate the “crunch” I crave.
- The thinner you make your fathead crackers, the easier it is to get them crunchy — and the easier it is the burn them. Adjust your bake time according to the width of your fathead crackers.
- Freezing these fathead crackers helps you get an easier, thinner cut. If you freeze them too long, just allow them to thaw before trying to slice them.
- Swap the seeds with whatever you’d prefer. The Epicurious recipe suggested using poppy seeds around the edge of the crackers. I love the Everything But the Bagel Seasoning from Trader Joe’s — it’s a combo of garlic, onion, poppy seeds and sesame seeds.
- When slicing these fathead crackers, rotate the dough after every slice. This will prevent a flat edge and lopsided crackers.
Other Low Carb Chips Variations
Or, if fathead crackers don’t seem like your thing, there are a ton of low carb chips recipes you can try instead:
Who doesn’t love a good cheese chips recipe — crunchy, crispy cheese, baked up with delicious herbs and spices? This cheese chips recipe even has bacon in it!
Another cheese crisps recipe, but this time, with more protein. Parmesan is the best cheese to crisp up into a snack due to its meltability and protein count!
How to Eat These Almond Flour Crackers
Almond flour crackers make for the perfect low carb appetizers, served alongside a delicious dip, sauce or charcuterie. They’re also delicious for low carb lunches, with some sliced meat and veggies — try making mini sandwiches with them!
Is This Gluten Free Cracker Recipe Available in Stores?
As you know, every store sells their own gluten free cracker recipe, so it makes sense to wonder where can I buy fathead crackers! Well friends, I’m sorry to report I haven’t found fathead crackers for sale at a grocery store. So let’s bake them instead 🙂
Are These Paleo Crackers

Dice the chives.
In a microwave safe bowl add the mozzarella, cream cheese, almond flour and salt. Microwave to melt the cheeses. Alternatively, you can do this in a double boiler.
Once cream cheese has softened and cheese is melted, mix everything together using a rubber spatula.
Add the chives and stir to combine.
Set aside and allow this to slightly cool, but not harden.
Place cracker dough inside a large resealable bag. Release air and seal bag.
Press the dough to the bottom of the bag and roll it into a log that spans the crease of the bag.
Roll the surface a few times to smooth out any creases.
Freeze dough for 30 minutes. If you freeze longer, you’ll need to thaw the dough slightly before slicing it.
Preheat oven to 350 F.
Take the dough out of the baggie.
Pour the Everything But the Bagel Seasoning onto a large plate.
Roll the dough over the seasoning so they press into the edges of the dough.
Using a sharp knife, slice the dough ¼ - ⅛” thick, keeping the slices as even as possible. Rotate the log between cuts so the crackers don’t flatten on one side.
Place crackers on a greased baking sheet. (They won’t spread as they cook.)
Bake the crackers for 25 minutes, or until they start to brown around the edges. Once they brown slightly, pull them from the oven, they’ll continue to crisp as they cool. Enjoy!
