Laura wants a cracker! <<< That was me a half hour ago. I’ve made fathead keto crackers before, but those take time. I wanted a crunchy cracker and I wanted it fast, so I hit up google. Good grief, some had more ingredients than I cared to count, along with melting and stirring and did I mention that I wanted a cracker…fast?! I am fairly new to this keto thing, but I recall seeing people literally cook nothing but a piece of cheddar cheese and call it a cracker. Sounds pretty good actually, but I didn’t have cheddar, so here’s what I did, and it took one minute of prep time.
In a bowl, mix 1 cup shredded mozzarella, 2 tablespoons romano, 1 tablespoon milled flaxseed and a pinch of dried parsley. Boom, that’s it.
The milled flaxseed gives the cracker some bulk and reminds me of a hearty wheat cracker. You are now 12 minutes away from a crunchy keto cheese cracker. Arrange the cheese mix in piles on parchment paper and bake at 400 degrees for 5 minutes, then flip and bake another 3-5 minutes, depending on how thick your cheese pile is. They should be fairly even so the edges don’t burn. Make sure they are lightly browned before you flip them, or they will drip into blob of melty mozzarella. I heated a bit of low-carb Rao’s Marinara for dipping, and in 15 minutes, I had a crunchy, dippable keto cracker that was darn tasty!
This video shows a different version with sour cream…they crunch like potato chips!
I am still learning this Keto thing, but I’m off 3 out of 4 meds for depression and fatigue. I call that a miracle. I have one book that got me started on keto if you want to check it out. It’s rated well on Amazon and is throughly researched with full color pictures. For more details on how to get your pantry keto-ready, see this Stock Your Kitchen post. And who doesn’t love ice cream. Keto ice cream is a breeze to make! Cheers, and keto on, warriors!

What do I do when I am not ketoing? I am an author. Harper Collins bought my first novel in 2010, and I have since put out an electronic version of Escaping The Tiger. Check out these reviews. Would love for you to read it. Cheers, Keto Warriors!
