Low Carb Cheese Crackers

 

 

Only 1/2 gram net carb per cracker

INGREDIENTS

1 1/4 cups almond flour
3/4 cup coconut flour
1/4 cup coconut oil, melted
4 eggs, beaten
100 grams grated cheddar (1 1/2 cups)
1/2 tsp sea salt
1/2 tsp baking soda
1 tsp garlic powder

DIRECTIONS

Preheat oven to 350 degrees.
Line a large baking sheet with parchment.
Combine all ingredients in a large bowl. Roll out between two sheets of parchment. You may need to do half a batch at a time.
Place on baking sheet and score into squares slightly larger than 1″. I have a really BIG cookie sheet, so I was able to do the entire batch at one time.
Bake for 15 minutes. Yo want to the crackers to be fairly dry, so a few extra minutes if you are not sure won’t hurt them. Turn off the oven and allow to cool inside.
Remove from oven and break into squares. Keeps in an airtight container in fridge for several days.

Makes 80 crackers.
