Crispy, crunchy and so good for your belly.

These Keto Chia Seed Crackers are the perfect canvas for dip and make an excellent addition to your low carb charcuterie board.

🥘Ingredients:

  • ½ cup water to soak the chia seeds

Don’t skip soaking the chia seeds. They will be like tiny rocks in your crackers. And, they can also choke you.

  • 4 tbsp Chia Seeds

Chia seeds are an amazing super-food. This is the very best deal we have found in a while…

Check out the amazing benefits of chia seeds if you are interested in that sort of thing.

  • 4 tbsp Hemp Hearts

Hemp hearts are super nutritious and have a mild flavor that is perfect for making crackers.

You can use ground flax instead if you like the flavor. Flax is much more intense than hemp hearts.

If you need to exchange the almond four for coconut flour, start with 1.5 tablespoons to get the right consistency for the dough.

You can use any oil you like.

👩🏿‍🍳How to Make the Keto Crackers:

  • Preheat oven to 275F

The Keto Chia Seed Crackers need to bake low and slow to dry out completely without burning.

  • In a small mixing bowl, soak the 4 tbsp of chia seeds in the ½ cup of water for 5 to 10 minutes.

You will want to stir them well before letting them soak, this should make something roughly the consistency of pudding.

I usually do this step while I am gathering all of the ingredients and trying to remember where in the freezer I put the hemp hearts.

  • When the seeds have become gelatinous /absorbed all the water, add the rest of the ingredients in the bowl and mix well to form a dough.

Make sure the gelatinous surface has formed on the chia seeds.

If you skip this part your crackers are going to have hard little rock like chia seeds in them.

  • Make the dough into a ball and place between two sheets of parchment paper.

Parchment paper is your friend and we buy a giant roll at Costco to make low carb cooking easier.

  • Roll the dough into a rectangle shape that is about ⅛ to ¼ inch thick. (Thinner is better).

It’s easier to get and even surface by starting to roll in the middle and going out towards the edge.

  • Remove the top sheet of parchment and use a pizza cutter to to cut the dough into 24 equal-ish squares.

  • Bake at 275F for about 45 minutes or until the dough had dried and slightly browned.
  • Once they are dry and crispy – Remove from oven and gently separate.

Gently flip over with a spatula and put back into the oven for 30-45 minutes until crispy.

If you have time…just turn off the oven after 30 minutes and let them cool all the way in the oven, with the door ajar.

This makes for some really crispy Keto Crackers but it’s not necessary. The crackers will still be crunchy…just not AS crunchy.

If you have been eating / cooking low carb for any length of time you know what I’m talking about…

  • Let them cool and enjoy. Or, keep them in an airtight container for 2-3 days.

📋Tips & FAQ’s:

Can I double or triple this recipe?

Yes, no changes are needed to make bigger batches. In fact, I recommend it.

The Chia Seed Crackers are delicious and if you only make one batch they might be gone faster than you’d like.

Can I add any other spices to this recipe?

Absolutely! Go easy on the spices and salt until you have made the recipe a time or two. The spices intensify as the crackers dry in the oven.

The Everything Bagel seasoning recipe is amazing in crackers, and it’ll save you a lot of money if you use this seasoning very often. This post is another cracker recipe but the seasoning recipe can be found at the bottom of the post. It’s super easy.

Can I freeze the Keto Chia Seed Crackers?

Yes. These freeze well and can stay frozen for up to three months.

Just make sure to open the container or air tight bag while they’re thawing to avoid getting soggy from the condensation.

  1. It’s confusing where you say “Bake at 275F for about 45 minutes more…” when you hadn’t said to bake them at all yet. I suppose you intended for this piece of instruction to be applied after the first half of the baking, but that’s not how it reads.

  2. These are great! I am going to triple the batch next time or hide them from my kids so I get more than three.

    Hello from Australia! These are the best Keto Crackers I have ever made. They have saved me from going back to store bought crisps!

  4. Great recipe! It can be cooked even in microwave: I made the crackers as thin as possible, cut it and put on a flat plate in the microwave for 4 min, then flip the crackers, removed the moisture inside microwave with paper and then sent crackers for 2 more mins. Turned out great! Thanks for the recipe!

    THANK YOU!!!!Thank you so much for this recipe. This came out soooo good. Definitely a keeper.Like the other reviewer suggested I added a little bit of coconut flour.

  7. Didn’t have hemp hearts so I just susbtituted it with more Almond Flour. Worked great for me. ? this is great. Thanks. ?

  8. Hi Whitney!

    I think you could sub in ground flax for the hemp hearts if you like that flavor. Or, possibly more chia seeds. If you choose chia you will probably need to “dry” the crackers out significantly longer to make up for the added moisture. I hope you try it and let us know!
    Cheers, Brenna

  9. Is there a sub for the hemp hearts? I can’t get my hands on any where I live but I really want to try this recipe.

  10. I like it very my h. I added a tablespoon of coconut flour to absorb the moisture.

  11. Hey Jamie,

    You can either add the spices right into the dough or sprinkle them on top before baking. I prefer adding spice to the dough so the flavor permeates the cracker unless we are talking about salt. I love them sprinkled with salt.

    Yummy! I made these two days ago, ate them ALL already, and have another batch in the oven right now. Great recipe!
