Low Carb Italian Crackers


I made up these Low Carb Italian Crackers because somebody was asking about LC cracker recipes on our Facebook page, so I pulled out one of my cookbooks and adapted a recipe to fit what I had in the cupboard. Because hey, my favorite recipes are the ones that I don’t have to go to the store to make!

A little experimentation later, and I ended up with these savory, crunchy, diamond-shaped crackers. They passed the husband test–he thought I bought ’em!–so I decided to share the recipe with you all.

Hope you like them! If you make these, let me know what you think in the comments or share any experimentation with us.

  • 1 C grated Parmesan Cheese
  • 1/2 C Oat Bran
  • 1/2 Cup Almond Flour
  • 1 Tbsp Garlic Powder
  • 1 Tbsp Onion Powder
  • 2 Tbsp Italian Seasoning
  • 1 Egg white
  • Water (combined with Egg white to = total 1/2 cup liquid)
  • Dash Garlic Salt


  • Preheat oven to 325.
  • Combine cheese, oat bran, almond flour, garlic and onion powders and Italian seasoning in a small bowl.
  • Put an egg white into a measuring cup, and then carefully add water until you reach a half-cup mark total liquid. Too much liquid = no crunch.
  • Mix the egg white and water into the dry ingredients well. The mixture should be slightly moist but not overly wet.
  • Cover a large cookie sheet with parchment paper. Spread the cracker dough on top..
  • Add a second layer of parchment paper over it all, and roll dough into a very thin layer. The thinner the dough, the more crispy your crackers will be.
  • Peel off the top paper and use a pizza cutter to score crackers into little diamonds. Mine were about 1 1/2 inches or so and made about 50 crackers total.
  • Stop nibbling on the dough! Sprinkle garlic salt on the top and pop in the oven.
  • Bake for around 20 minutes, or until your crackers are brown and crispy-looking. Longer baking time = crunchier crackers.
  • Let them cool a few minutes, then break apart and store in a covered container.

Recipe Notes

You could easily change the flavor with altering spices. In places where the dough was a little thick for crackers, I noticed these tasted a lot like garlic bread. So there you go - bread stick squares! Serving size of 5 crackers based on about 50 total, filling up a large cookie sheet.

Almond Flour, Crackers, Snacks

  • These look very good!! I can’t have grains so is there something that can be used instead of oat bran? would love to try these!!

  • Up at the top it says “serves 50” & bottom nutrition fact says serving size 5 crackers which would be 250 crackers…in notes it says “5 crackers based on about 50 total”…so wondering which one is accurate? would it be easier to put serving size up at top with how many it serves to have it all in one place?
