So, can I be frank with you? Getting enough fiber in a low carb keto diet can prove to be a bit challenging at times. Sure, there are supplements you can take to ensure your fiber levels are high enough, but why? If I’m given the option of taking a fiber supplement or a a tasty snack, what do you think I’m going to choose?
This foodie wanted to create a delicious low carb high fiber cracker. I know there are plenty of good recipes out there for low carb crackers, but I not only wanted a delicious cracker, I wanted it to meet my fiber needs too. Can I hear an amen from those who’ve been wanting the same thing?
I must admit that at times I crave regular wheat crackers but a high carb, gluten-loaded cracker is the last thing I need. Which is why I just let the craving pass and usually resort to pork rinds when I want something crunchy. Don’t get me wrong pork rinds are great and all, but they offer no added fiber to my diet and doesn’t have the mouth-feel of cracker.
This low carb high fiber cheesy cracker hit the spot perfectly. It’s loaded with fiber since it has chia seeds, flax seeds, and psyllium powder. Is that enough fiber for ya? Well, it certainly was for our family.
Remember though, I was not only looking for a low carb cracker high in fiber, but one full of cheesy goodness flavor. This little number tastes like a really cheesy Nabisco Triscuit Cracker. It really tasted like it was made with wheat, which made me feel like I was cheating. You know it’s a winner when a low carb keto recipe tastes like a major cheat.

Low Carb High Fiber Cheesy Crackers
½ cup shredded sharp cheddar cheese
½ cup coconut flour
½ cup of finely ground parmesan cheese (what comes in a container)
½ cup of freshly ground parmesan cheese
2 teaspoons of psyllium powder
¼ cup of chia seeds
¼ cup of whole flax seeds
1 teaspoon of baking powder
1 teaspoon of onion powder
1 teaspoon of garlic powder
1 teaspoon of dried basil leaves
1 teaspoon of dried oregano leaves
½ teaspoon of sea-salt
¼ teaspoon of black pepper
¼ teaspoon of red pepper flakes
3 tablespoons of avocado oil or any other healthy oil of your choice
1 cup of water
1 whole egg
Pre-heat oven to 350 degrees
- In a large stand-up mixer add all the dry ingredients and stir until well combined.
- Add the water, oil and egg to the mixture and stir until a fully incorporated dough forms.
- Divide the dough in half and roll out the dough thinly between two sheets of parchment paper. The thinner you roll out the dough the crispier the crackers. NOTE: If you choose to not roll out to thinly, you get more of flatbread consistency. This is also a very good and delicious option.
- Remove the top layer of the parchment paper and either bake the whole flattened dough on a large cookie sheet with the bottom layer of parchment paper left in place. Bake in the oven for 3o minutes or until lightly brown around the edges or score the dough to create more uniform crackers. I went for a more organic shape and therefore baked the dough whole in two batches and then once the cooked dough was cool I broke the large cracker in my hands.
