Top them with cheese, scoop them with dip, or plunk them in soup! However you decide to eat them, this little crackers have big flavor. 

I created this recipe by altering this recipe for tortilla chips. With the holiday party season going into full swing, I wanted to give you a go-to recipe for a cracker that not only your low-carb guests will like, but one that everyone will enjoy.

These crackers boast crispy edges-perfect for nibbling.  Flavors of rosemary and parmesan come through in every bite. In fact, they are so good, you may decide to eat them by themselves!

While they are delicious by themselves, these crackers work perfectly with parmesan cheese. The combination of rosemary and parmesan just sings!

The rosemary may overpower milder cheeses. The good news is that you can just leave the rosemary out and substitute more mozzarella for the parmesan and you have a mild cracker that will be a perfect vehicle to deliver your favorite brie to your mouth.

While there is an option for a milder version, you could also get really creative with this recipe. I’m thinking that substituting taco seasoning for the rosemary would make a perfect combination to top with cheddar cheese or serve with chili. If you decide to do your own thing, just be sure to keep the ratio of almond flour and mozzarella the same. Many cheeses could be substituted for the 1/2 cup of parmesan as long as they will melt. Let me know what combinations you come up with!

Author Annissa Slusher


  • 1 1/2 cups part skim mozzarella (about 6 ounces) finely grated
  • 1/2 cup parmesan cheese (about 2 ounces) finely grated
  • 3/4 cup super fine almond flour
  • 1/4 teaspoon sea salt
  • 1 teaspoon fresh rosemary chopped
  • flaked salt (optional)


  1. Preheat oven to 375º Fahrenheit. Have two sheets of parchment, a rolling pin, and two baking sheets available.

  2. Add mozzarella cheese, parmesan cheese, almond flour, sea salt and rosemary to a heavy, large saucepan. 

  3. Place saucepan over low heat and heat, stirring frequently, until the cheeses melt and the mixture forms into a dough. Remove from heat. Turn dough out onto one of the sheets of parchment. Pat into a rectangle.

  4. Cover dough with the second piece of parchment. Roll dough into a square about 12 inches by 12 inches. Slide the dough (and parchment) onto a cutting board.

  5. Remove the top piece of parchment. (Place this parchment on one of the cookie sheets for later) Using a rotary cutter, a pizza cutter, or a serrated knife, cut dough into about 1 1/2 inch squares.

  6. Place the parchment containing the crackers onto the second cookie sheet. Transfer about half of the crackers to the other sheet and spread them so that they do not touch.

  7. Sprinkle lightly with flaked salt, if desired. Using a fork, make holes in each cracker.

  8. Bake for 9-11 minutes or until edges are golden brown and tops are starting to brown. Remove from oven and transfer the crackers to a cooling rack. Allow to cool completely.

  9. For extra crispy crackers, after the crackers have cooled, place the cooling rack containing the crackers on one of the cookie sheets.  Place in a 175º Fahrenheit oven (Be sure it isn't still hot from baking the crackers) for 15-20 minutes. Turn off the oven and allow the crackers to cool in the oven. This process removes extra moisture and adds crunch.

  10. These crackers are best the same day they are made. If you store them in an airtight container, they may soften a bit. You can make them more crispy again by using the same instructions for extra crispy crackers above.
