What you need to Make Keto Nut Crackers
Almond flour – superfine is best
Pecan flour – to make pecan flour, see below
Oil – I used olive, but you could use avocado or your favorite oil
1 egg white – whipped until frothy
1/8 tsp salt
How to Make Pecan Flour for Keto Crackers
Pecans give these crackers a lovely flavor, and you can make pecan flour at home with either whole pecans or pecan pieces.
Spread 1/4 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.
Let them cool a minute or two – but take them OFF the sheet pan or they’ll keep roasting.
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.
How to Make Keto Nut Crackers
Whip the egg whites with a fork until they are well-mixed and frothy
Combine the egg whites with the ground nuts and mix well. Add 1/8 tsp of salt or your favorite seasoning.
Place the batter between two sheets of parchment paper and roll it out fairly thin.
Using a long knife, cut the flat dough into cracker shapes. Slide the parchment paper on to a sheet pan.
Bake in a 325-F oven for 10-12 minutes or until golden brown around the edges.
Cool completely before removing from the parchment paper.
Chef’s Tips to Make Keto Crackers
- Mix and match the nuts. Try ground walnuts, ground macadamia nuts, ground Brazil nuts – whatever you like!
- Add a sprinkle of smoky chipotle powder to the top of the unbaked crackers for some smoky heat.
- 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 Nut Crackers
These crisp 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, top them with your favorite cheese, or nibble on them with a delicious soup like Beefy Minestrone.
