Cheese Thyme Keto Crackers Recipe
This easy Keto crackers recipe is made with coconut flour and topped with sharp cheddar and fragrant, fresh thyme. Perfect as a satiating low carb snack or as a crunchy, grain free side for a salad or soup.
These coconut flour crackers have been a staple in out kitchen for several years. Actually, it’s one of the first Keto crackers recipe I created when I started eating sugar free and low carb. We’ve served it at dinner parties and I’ve even made it at a yoga retreat where I was cheffing and it always gets the thumbs up. Friends, EVERYONE likes cheesy crackers!
Most low carb crackers recipes are made with almond flour, like these equally yummy almond low carb crackers. Some people cannot tolerate almond flour though, so these coconut flour crackers are the perfect alternative!
Coconut flour is, of course, astonishingly good for you. Read more about the health benefits of coconut flour here. The only thing is that it DOES have a gentle coconut taste, which is why it’s a favourite for sweet recipes.
I can assure you that this Keto crackers recipe does not taste of coconut AT ALL.
How? Well, this recipe contains a fair amount of cheese – a mix of cheddar and parmesan. Combined with the thyme, these flavours are so prominent you’ll have NO IDEA there’s even a sliver of coconut flour in these crackers!
How to make cheesy Keto coconut flour crackers – step by step:
1.) Combine the coconut flour, butter, egg, cheddar and parmesan in a bowl and mix until you have a smooth dough. You can do this by hand or with an electric mixer / food processor.
Let the mixture rest for a few minutes so the coconut flour can absorb the moisture.
2.) Form 8 balls and press them down on a baking sheet lined with parchment paper.
3.) Top with the remaining 1/4 cup of grated cheddar and fresh thyme leaves. Bake for 12-15 minutes until the low carb crackers are nicely browned and the cheese has melted and crisped up. That’s it!
Tips and tricks to make this Keto crackers recipe taste the way you love
Make sure you flatten your crackers properly. The flatter they are, the crispier they will become.
You don’t need to use fresh thyme (although it tastes divine). If you have dried thyme in your kitchen cupboard that will do nicely too.
Feel like tweaking the recipe? Try using different spices such as rosemary or make spicy Keto crackers by adding paprika and a pinch of chilli or cayenne pepper.
You can sub the parmesan for pecorino if you prefer, it gives a saltier, very tasty touch to the recipe.
If you are NOT after a crispy texture, you could adapt this recipe and make Keto cheesy biscuits instead. Simply add 1 tsp of baking powder and form 4 larger biscuit shapes instead of the 8 crackers. They will be soft and fluffy on the inside!
Oh wow, these are divine! Thank you for sharing this one – even my [usually fussy] family members loved them. Will definitely be a regular snack in our household from now on. Hi and thanks from our now happily-full family in Auckland, New Zealand ??
These cheese crackers are so versatile and easy to make. Since I gave up eating processed foods, they’ve been life saviours. Great with any toppings. I love to make mini pizza chips using cheese as a base. they are amazing. Have you tried them?
I, too,didn’t find them crispy enough, so I’ll make them even thinner next time. Also, as much as I adore thyme, I didn’t think it went too well in these, & I may try rosemary &/or garlic granules next time. I loved that they were so easy to make with very few ingredients,
Thank you for posting this option. We, too, need to use almond flour instead of coconut flour since my husband has diabetes II. How much more almond flour would we use than the coconut flour? Anything else like baking powder to make it more similar? THANK YOU SO MUCH FOR THESE RECIPES – YOU REALLY ARE HELPING ALOT OF PEOPLE.
I’d have to try it our myself to be sure. Definitely more almond flour than coconut flour – possibly twice as much. Maybe that’s a good starting point. I’ll experiment with this one as well and will let you know. It’s always good to have alternatives. Some people are coconut flour lovers, some prefer almond flour.
Hi Jackie, I calculated per cracker. Do make sure to run the numbers on your end as well though. I used the nutritional calculator on caloriecount.com (which is shutting down this month), which is quite accurate, but as a diabetic you need to be 100% sure where you’re at.
Hi, Katrin. These sound great. I’m wondering if I can make them a couple of days before Christmas (to enjoy as part of a Christmas platter). Would I store them in an air-tight container in the fridge, and would they be soggy or retain their crunch? Thanks. ??
Hi Michaela, I have to be honest with you – mine never lasted long enough to store. If you do decide to make them ahead, please do take the time to drop a comment here about the crunch factor. Happy Christmas

What Designers Can Try From Martha Stewart?
Like every housewife, Martha Stewart, a long-time developer of experience, can teach a few things to UX practitioners to bring back users for more.
You can compare the experience of spending time with people living in their homes to experience a brand. When you enter the home of a truly wonderful host, you are faced with a number of carefully designed options designed to give you a positive experience. In other words: you are experiencing the ın brand ”of that household.
Pleasant tastes, ambience and lighting, welcoming cuddles and talking, the best hosts are planning every experience that their guests will experience, taking into account all their senses and emotional reactions. Like every brand, good hosts want their guests to come back for more.
Although some houses have played a role in persuading people to carefully consider their guests' multi-sensual needs while Martha Stewart, Candice Olson, and Jonathan Adler had such personalities, many homeowners have done this in multiple points of contact for generations. In many ways, we can say that homeowners are original experience designers.
Like every good host, brands also want consumers to enjoy the experience of their products. However, very often, they do not understand the spectrum of the multi-sensory needs of their customers and thus fall behind the expectations of the meeting.
Brands, Martha, Candice and Jonathan, by considering the three important principles, including the best daily hosts, brands can design meaningful, multi-sensory experiences and establish long-term relationships with customers.
