Quick and easy keto snack, without using coconut or almond flour. These gluten free cheese crackers are great option as a snack, linseed is mostly fibre and fat, one of the best plant-based sources of heart-healthy omega-3 fatty acids. You can easily reduce feeling of hunger and appetite with couple of these crackers, and decrease cravings.
Linseeds are a great source of many nutrients like: Vitamin B1 and B6, folate, calcium, iron, magnesium, phosphorus and potassium – all the vitamins and minerals our body needs on the daily basis. Linseeds are versatile can be easily added to your daily diet. You can add them to you porridge or cereal, sprinkle them over you favourite salad, add to a smoothie or yoghurt, add to muffins or homemade bread.
If you have the tendency to snack between meals, you can check my other linseed based snack recipe or other sugar free recipes. They are great alternative for traditional chocolate bars and highly processed sweet snacks. These crackers are so easy to make, it will take you literally less time and effort than taking a trip to shop. You can upgrade them adding coarse pepper, dash of chilli or some garlic granules. I also recommend adding strong, mature cheese rather than some gentle flavour one. This way you’ll get nice and really cheesy flavour.
You can easily make your own linseed flour, by grinding linseeds in a coffee grinder. Always remember to make small batches of linseed flour, and keep it in airtight container in a cupboard, because grounded linseed oxidise quickly.
keto linseed flour cheese crackers
NOTE: my measuring cup is 250ml regular glass
- 1 1/3 cup linseed (flaxseed) flour
- 1 /2 tsp baking powder
- 2 tbsp olive oil
- 1 tbsp milk (regular milk or plant)
- 1/2 cup grated mature cheddar
- pinch of salt
In a large bowl using your hand mix all the ingredients. I recommend using strong and aromatic cheese rather than something with more gentle taste, so the cheese flavour will be more visible. Take a piece of baking paper and roll the dough quite thin, it will break on the edges, that’s normal.
Using a knife or pizza cutter, cut it in triangles or squares and bake for about 20 minutes in 180°C. Be careful not to burn them, because cheese will get bitter.
Cool down after baking and break crackers in pieces. You can store them in a sealed container for couple of days.
