Easy, 3-ingredient almond crackers

When gluten intolerance pushed alternative flours into the mainstream, I found out coconut flour was a thing. That was an exciting day.

Almond flour was another variety I began toying with. And though I love carbs oh so very much, I happened upon a 3-ingredient almond cracker recipe that's also:

  • low-carb
  • gluten-free
  • paleo-friendly
  • keto-friendly

Now, you would think that with all those health markers checked off, that the crackers would be joyless. Not the case! These guilt-free treats are nutty, savory and very filling. Besides, the 3 ingredients are just a gateway drug to zestier flavors. Salt is the third flavor, but before you know it, you'll be rummaging through the spice cabinet for zesty combinations.

3-ingredient almond cracker recipe


  • 1 egg
  • Two cups almond flour
  • 2/3 tsp salt


  • Add all ingredients to a bowl and mix well with your hands
  • Place the dough on the counter, in between two sheets of parchment paper
  • Roll the parchment paper until the dough is rolled cracker-thin and even
  • Peel off the top layer of parchment paper, and with a pizza cutter, slice the crackers into little squares or rectangles
  • Transfer the crackers onto a metal sheet pan lined with parchment paper
  • Bake at 350 for at least 10-11 minutes, watching closely. Remove when the edges turn brown. 
  • Remove from the oven and let them cool on the sheet pan, as long as the crackers aren't too browned. 
  • Cool off, enjoy, and place into an airtight container only once the crackers have reached room temperature.

Now that we've gotten the recipe out of the way, I must admit I never just use three ingredients.

Almond cracker flavor ideas

Here are some great combos:

  • Salt & rosemary
  • Pizza: finely-chopped sun-dried tomatoes, powdered parmesan, thyme, oregano, and basil
  • Furikake
  • Truffle salt

I should mention that powdered garlic and powdered onion are a great accompaniment to every mentioned flavor combination. I should also mention that shredded cheese bakes well into these crackers, if you throw in just a handful. It will affect the texture and shelf life, but they are delicious.
