Homemade Keto Crackers
Yield 12 Small Crackers
- ½ cup sunflower seeds
- ½ cup sesame seeds
- ½ tsp garlic powder
- ½ tsp onion powder
- ½ tsp pink salt
- 2 tbsps. of clean water
Step #1: Preheat the oven to 350°F.
Step #2: Place the sesame seeds, sunflower seeds, garlic powder, onion powder, and salt in a high-powered blender or food processor and blend until the mixture takes on the consistency of flour.
Step #3: While the blender or food processor is running, drizzle in the water until the mixture takes on the consistency of dough and clumps together into a ball.
Step #4: Transfer the dough to a 14-inch-square piece of parchment paper and place an equal-size sheet on top of it. Using a rolling pin, roll out the dough as thin as you like (if it’s on the thicker side, say ¼ inch, the crackers will be much sturdier).
Step #5: Remove the top sheet of parchment paper and transfer the rolled dough, still on the bottom sheet of parchment, to a baking sheet. Using a pizza cutter or sharp knife, cut the dough into rectangles, but do not separate the rectangles.
Step #6: Bake for 15 to 20 minutes, or until golden brown. Remove from the oven and set aside to cool completely on the baking sheet.
Step #7: Break up the crackers into rectangles. Serve or store in the refrigerator for up to a week.

Dr Jockers Comments
One of the biggest things my clients miss when they begin on an anti-inflammatory, ketogenic nutrition plan is the flavor and crunch of a zesty cracker or chip. These homemade keto crackers help to fill in the void. They are fairly simple to make, taste amazing and are full of great ingredients!
These doesn’t take long to make, provides a great crunch, are low carb/ketogenic and are loaded with anti-inflammatory nutrients. Sunflower and sesame seeds are a great source of healthy fats, B vitamins, trace minerals and magnesium. Adding in the garlic and onion powder supports the immune system and gives them a great flavor.
I love using these crackers with guacamole or even with a little grass-fed butter smeared on them! I also love making these with various nuts like almonds, cashews or using pumpkin seeds.
