You don’t have to eat paleo to fall in love with these paleo crackers…
They’ve got just the right amount of salty, crispy crunch, that makes them an addictively delicious snack. Perfect for dipping in your favorite sauce or serving up with a platter of charcuterie.
These paleo crackers are made from only nuts and seeds — basically, they’re the guilt free snack of your dreams! And I can’t wait to hear what you think.
So grab your food processor and let’s make some paleo crackers!
How to Make Paleo Crackers
You’re gonna be stoked at how easy this paleo crackers recipe is to make — the hardest part is gathering the ingredients!
All you’ve gotta do, is add the paleo crackers nut and seeds to a food processor and “pulse” them into a flour like grain. Pulsing as opposed to steadily running the machine is the ideal method for chopping ingredients. It’s important to hold the pulse button for 1 second at a time, as this will chop the ingredients without liquifying them.
Be sure to periodically stop the motor, take off the lid, and scrape down the sides to incorporate all paleo crackers ingredients! May seem like a pain, but this will ensure an even crunch to your paleo crackers.
Then add the water to your paleo crackers. Most recipe suggest doing this while the motor is running, but that’s a little too advanced for my taste. I like to take the lid off of the processor and evenly distribute the water over the top. Then, return the lid and steadily run the machine until the paleo crackers form into a ball.
Take the paleo crackers dough, and plop it on a sheet of parchment paper. Then place another piece of parchment on top and roll the dough with a rolling pin into an even layer. You want the dough to be thin, but not too thin — ¼” seems to be the optimal thickness for crispy crackers that stay together.
Toss the paleo crackers in the oven! You’ll want to rotate the pan mid-bake, for an even amount of doneness.
Once the paleo crackers have cooled, break them into the shape and size you’d like, and enjoy!
How to Store These Low Carb Crackers
I store these low carb crackers in the fridge to satiate all my snacking needs! They’re best stashed in a hardshell container, as opposed to a plastic bag as these paleo crackers are rather fragile on their own and need the extra layer of protection.
What To Eat With Keto Crackers
Aside from the obvious keto crackers sneak snacking, here are some ideas to incorporate them into your eating plan:
Make mini paleo crackers sandwiches with them.
Whether you’re on a strict paleo eating plan, or more of a low carb eating plan, you can make mini sandwiches to fit your needs! I love the cheese and turkey combo (sorry paleo peeps). Add mustard, mayo, banana peppers, pickles — whatever you’re craving!
Serve as low carb appetizers with your favorite dip.
I use these in lieu of low carb tortilla chips all the time — they’re easier to make, plus they cater to a wider range of eating plans (they’re vegan, paleo and low carb). Dip them in guacamole, avocado sauce, low carb honey mustard, or whatever you’re craving!
Low Carb Snacks.
These make for the perfect snacks! Keep a container in the fridge, or pack them up and bring them on hikes instead of a bag full of keto nuts.
Almond Flour Crackers Variations
You can adjust this almond flour crackers recipe to suit your cravings by simply adding a handful of different spices or fresh herbs to the food processor! Here are some tasty paleo seed crackers ideas:
- Low carb taco seasoning (or a combo of cumin, paprika, chili powder and oregano)
- Fresh herbs such as rosemary, thyme or oregano
- Fresh garlic
- Spices such as garlic powder, onion powder, chili powder

Pst, looking for more low carb crackers? Check out the list below this recipe!
- 1/2 Cup Raw Pecans
- 1/2 Cup Almonds , blanched or regular
- 1/2 Cup Pumpkin Seeds
- 1/2 Cup Chia Seeds
- 1 Teaspoon Kosher Salt
- 2 Tablespoons Olive Oil
- 3 Tablespoons Rosemary , fresh
- 1 Cup Water
Add pecans, almonds, pumpkin seeds, chia seeds flaxseeds and salt to a food processor.
“Pulse” ingredients together until they break down into a grain size.
Evenly distribute water and olive oil over the ingredients in the food processor.
Turn the processor on and allow the ingredients to form into a ball.
Turn off the food processor and scrape down the sides using a rubber spatula, then process ingredient 1 more time to ensure everything evenly combines.
Place the dough on a sheet of parchment paper.
Place a second sheet of parchment paper over the dough.
Using a rolling pin, roll the dough into a thin (but not too thin!) and even layer — 1/4 “ thick.
Place dough on a baking sheet and into the oven for 10 minutes.
Remove crackers from oven and rotate the pan. Bake for another 5 minutes — you’ll know the crackers are done when they’re golden brown around the edges and are crispy enough to “crack”.
Once crackers have cooled, break the crackers into pieces and enjoy!
- Crackers are fragile, and storing them in a ziplock doesn’t protect them very well. I suggest storing them in a plastic container.
- The thinner you make the crackers, the more fragile they are. Try keeping the dough thicker for a more solid cracker.

Looking For More Low Carb Chips?

Eggplant chips are one of the few veggie chips that are both paleo crackers nut free and low carb chips! These eggplant chips are dusted in a BBQ seasoning and crisped to perfection. If you aren’t sticking to low carb foods, try these parsnip chips, or beet chips!
