These quick and easy Almond Flour Crackers from scratch only have 4 ingredients and really are ready in about 30 minutes or less. Whether you’ve cooked or baked with almond flour before, you won’t believe how simple these crackers are to make. And did I mention they are very tasty!
I’ve been baking and cooking with almond flour for a while now. I love that it is lower carb than traditional flour and love it’s “nutty” flavor! My Almond Flour Pancakes and Almond Flour Muffins have been quite popular. Or check out my long list of other almond flour recipes.
It can be a little tricky to cook or bake with, and generally, you can NOT substitute 1:1 with regular all-purpose flour.
What is Almond Flour
If you’re not familiar with almond flour, let me start off by saying it is NOT flour. Confusing, I know. It’s not a grain and made of just finely ground up of almonds. That’s it! Or at least that’s what it should be. There might be some almond flour blends out there with a variety of ingredients.
There are many different brands of almond flour or you can even make your own. For baking, I generally try to use one that is very finely ground. For this particular recipe I just happened to have Kirkland (Costco) brand around and it worked great.
If you’re wondering how to make almond flour, you can place unsalted blanched almonds or sliced almonds in a food process and process until fine crumbs. BUT please note that it is VERY difficult to get the almonds as finely ground as commercial brands so for baking purposes I would avoid homemade versions.
As I mentioned, you generally can not substitute almond flour for other grain or nut flours or vice-versa.

Almond Flour Crackers Ingredients
- Almond flour (make sure it’s FINELY ground)
- Melted butter (or oil of choice)
- Dried herbs and spices of choice (optional, see ideas down below)
How to Make Almond Flour Crackers
- PREHEAT. Preheat oven to 400 degrees F. Line a large baking sheet(s) with parchment paper or silicone mats.
- MIX DOUGH. In a medium mixing bowl mix together almond flour and salt. Then mix in butter and egg until well combined and ball forms. Work the ball a little with your hands or spoon until smooth, but dough will still be a little sticky.
- ROLL DOUGH. Place the dough on parchment paper, silicone mat, or nonstick work surface. Cover with another piece of parchment paper, silicone mat, or something nonstick. Using a rolling pin, roll dough as thin as possible (about 1/8-inch thick).
- CUT. Using a 1-inch square cookie cutter or pizza wheel cutter, cut crackers into 1-inch squares. Place squares on lined baking sheets.
- BAKE. Bake crackers at 400 degrees F for about 5-10 minutes or until golden brown on bottom or until desired doneness. Cool slightly before serving so crackers can crisp up more.
Want to add some flavor to your crackers? Here are a few delicious and easy ideas to add to your cracker dough (you might need to adjust the amounts for personal preference)…
- ITALIAN – 2 Tablespoons dry grated Parmesan cheese, 1 teaspoon Italian seasoning, 1/4 teaspoon onion powder, 1/4 teaspoon garlic powder
- MEXICAN – 1-2 teaspoons Taco seasoning (store-bought or try my Homemade Taco Seasoning)
- SPICY – 1/4 – 1/2 teaspoon ground cayenne
- CHEESY – 2-3 Tablespoons dray grated Parmesan cheese or dry cheese powder
- These crackers also make great nachos. Don’t ask how I know this, haha! Just be sure to not add anything liquidy on top or they will get mushy.
- Serve with your favorite dips like chip dip, guacamole, or cheese dips. This Cold Spinach Dip is a great option.
- Also great with slices or cubes of your favorite cheese.
Quick Tips for Best Results
- Let the crackers cool so they crisp up a little more. The longer you bake the crackers, the crispier they will be as well.
- Mix the dough well and roll in a ball and work a little more with a spoon or your hands so the dough is smooth.
- For perfectly sized crackers, use a square cookie cutter. BUT if you’re short on time and don’t care about perfection (which generally is my attitude…), roll out the dough on parchment paper or a silicone mat, cut your crackers out freehand and you don’t even have to separate them. Just place the whole thing on your baking sheet and bake. The crackers will snap right off (if cut or scored well before baking).
Almond Flour Crackers FAQ
How should I store Almond Flour Crackers?
Store the crackers in a resealable bag or airtight container.
Can I freeze Almond Flour Crackers?
No, I would not freeze them. They are likely to get soft when defrosting. BUT I haven’t tried, so can’t say for sure.
How long will Almond Flour Crackers last?
They should last at least a few days if not longer if stored well.
Instead of butter, you can use your favorite oil. Do NOT substitute other types of flours.
Can I use low-fat ingredients?
You can try a low-fat butter/oil substitute but that’s about it. Almonds do have a lot of fat.
What else can I add to this recipe?
Add your favorite dried herbs, spices, or even cheese (dried cheese powder) for fun flavors.
Didn’t turn out, what went wrong?
My guess is you didn’t use a finely ground almond flour (maybe you used a homemade version?) or you over or under baked them.
Can I make this vegan/vegetarian/low carb/gluten-free?
Here are some suggestions, but I can’t guarantee results. Be sure as always to check particular brands and ingredients if you’re following a specific diet or have diet restrictions or allergies.
Vegan – You can try your favorite oil for the butter. You can try a vegan egg substitute but I haven’t tried so don’t know about results.
Vegetarian – It’s vegetarian. Be sure to check individual brands/products just to be sure though.
Low-Carb – These are low-carb or at least compared to other crackers.
Gluten-Free -These are gluten-free but of course check brands to be sure.
Keto / Paleo – I’m not an expert on either diet, but I believe these crackers are ok for Keto diets. To be ok for a Paleo diet, I believe you will need to use olive oil instead of butter. (Someone please correct me if I’m wrong here…)
