INGREDIENTS IN KETO CRACKERS
Fine Ground Almond Flour- Use your favorite brand, but be sure it is a fine grind.
Sesame Seeds - Seeds add texture, flavor, and good fats to this recipe. I like to use a mix of black and white sesame seeds in my keto crackers but you can leave them out of you like.
Butter - Soften your butter to room temperature before mixing your cracker dough.
Egg - An egg keeps everything together and aids in browning.
Fresh Thyme - I love the flavor that fresh thyme gives to these crackers. It's fresh and savory and just delicious. Feel free to mix up the herbs and spices for different flavors.
Salt - In my opinion, crackers should be salty. A coarse ground salt is really beautiful in these, but whatever type of salt you have will work.
Pepper - Black pepper, also freshly ground if you have it, is a balancing addition to the other flavors here.
