Spicy Barbecue Cheese Crisps (Keto + Low-Carb Cheese Crackers)


So we all grew up eating Cheez-It, Goldfish, and other boxed snack crackers, right? Although delicious, these products almost always contain flour as well as preservatives that increase their shelf-life, but may not be so great for our bodies. This goes double if you’re trying to stick to a low-carb eating plan. Just one serving of one of the leading brands that I found contains 17 grams of carbohydrates per serving. Who’s eating just one serving though? No seriously, who?

If you’re looking for a cleaner alternative that tastes a whole lot better, then you need to try this! Simply take a block of your favorite cheese, grate/shred it, and separate the shreds into about one inch sections on a baking sheet lined with parchment papers. They do not have to be super neat or perfect; just make sure there’s plenty of space between because they will spread.

You can season these however you like, but I added a barbecue blend as well as crushed red pepper to mine.

I allowed the “crackers” to bake at 350 degrees for 15-20 minutes, or until crispy to the touch.

When done, I removed them from the hot baking sheet to let them cool and continue to crisp.

That’s it! You can eat them alone, enjoy them with dipping sauce, or as a side to your favorite sandwich or wrap. Please try this. Your taste buds called and asked me to tell you this! You will enjoy a 100% cheese snack cracker, versus some weird, factory-produced Franken-product that claims to “contain real cheese.”
