To make these almond flour crackers, you’ll need:

  • Almond flour – Also called almond meal. Look for superfine ground almond flour.
  • Pecan flour – To make pecan flour, see below.
  • Oil – I used olive oil, but any keto-friendly oil will work.
  • 1 egg white – Whipped until frothy.
  • 1/8 tsp salt

How to Make Pecan Flour for Keto Crackers

Pecans give these almond flour crackers a lovely flavor, and you can make pecan flour at home with either whole pecans or pecan pieces.

  1. Spread about 1/3 cup of pecans on a sheet pan and bake them in a 350-F oven for about 5 minutes or until crunchy and golden brown. Depending on the size, you may need a few more minutes or a bit less time. Line the pan with parchment paper for easy cleanup.
  2. Let them cool a minute or two – but take them OFF the sheet pan or they’ll keep roasting.
  3. Pulse the cooled roasted pecans in a food processor until finely chopped up. You don’t want dust – but you do want them pretty finely chopped.


A Word on Nut Flours and Nuts

Almonds, pecans, walnuts, and most nuts are high in natural oils. If kept at room temperature, nuts can go rancid after just a few weeks. Nut flours are especially prone to turning rancid.

For unopened nuts and nut flours, go by the best before date on the package, but once opened, keep your nuts in the freezer for maximum shelf life. They’ll keep fine, even after being opened, in the freezer for up to a year.

  1. Whip the egg whites with a fork until they are well-mixed and frothy
  2. Combine the egg whites with the ground nuts and mix well. Add 1/8 tsp of salt or your favorite seasoning.
  3. Place the batter between two sheets of parchment paper and roll it out fairly thin.
  4. Using a long knife or pizza cutter, cut the flat dough into cracker shapes. Slide the parchment paper onto a sheet pan.
  5. Bake in a 325-F oven for 10-12 minutes or until golden brown around the edges.
  6. Cool completely before removing them from the parchment paper.
  7. Enjoy!

Chef Jenn’s Tips

  • Mix and match the nuts. Try ground walnuts, ground macadamia nuts, ground Brazil nuts – whatever you like will work in this keto crackers recipe.
  • Add a sprinkle of smoky chipotle powder to the top of the unbaked crackers for some smoky heat, or top them with Everything Bagel seasoning or a dash of Parmesan cheese.
  • Keep extra ground nuts in the freezer. They’ll stay much fresher there. Ground nuts can go rancid within a few weeks if kept at room temperature.
  • Do NOT use wax paper. Parchment paper is coated lightly with silicone and won’t stick to the food. When heated, the wax on wax paper will melt and stick to everything. You don’t want waxy crackers.

What to Serve with Keto Crackers

These crisp low-carb crackers are tasty and have a fairly neutral flavor profile, which means they go great with any number of things. Dip them into this amazing Creamy Jalapeno Dip or this crab dip, top them with your favorite cream cheese, or nibble on them with a delicious soup like Beefy Minestrone.

  1. Just double checking before I make this–When using store bought almond flour, do I use 1/3 cup? Or is that to mean 1/3 cup almonds pre-grinding? I see that for the pecans you say to start with 1/4 C whole nuts, which I assume will make less than 1/4 C ground pecan flour. Sorry if I missed something in the instructions–just want to make sure not to mess up!

    • Hi! Sorry for the confusion – I made a few edits to hopefully make it more clear. You want 1/3 cup almond flour and 1/4 cup pecan flour to make these crackers. Hope this helps! ~Jenn
