Perfect for dipping, snacking and topping with your favourite ingredients, these are the best paleo crackers to try making at home. Grain-free, dairy-free, AIP (nut-free and egg-free), and low-carb, keto options are included.
There are a few things we all tend to really miss when eating the paleo way. For some people, it’s bread. Other folks miss cheese and all of the other dairy delicacies like yoghurt and sour cream. Some of us miss the simplicity of a snack like crackers with a good spread or a bit of meat.
If you find yourself missing that familiar crunch during snack time or at parties, I’ve got a few recipes for low-carb and paleo crackers that will help to fill the void. I’ll feature mostly grain-free and dairy-free crackers, but some keto ones will include cheese which keeps them low-carb (and adds a lot of flavour and crunch!).
Made with egg and coconut flour as the main ingredients, these grain-free and dairy-free crackers are on the lower carbohydrate side making them perfect for both paleo and keto diets. Sesame seeds add a lovely crunch and flavour, while the mustard gives them a very subtle hint of spice. Perfect for dipping, snacking and topping.
