Paleo Cracker Recipe – Paleo Potato Chips Alternative

paleo crackers recipeThe Paleo diet does not allow potato chips. If you are a woman (and maybe even if you are not), you will relate to salt cravings that only a bag of potato chips will satisfy! Well, I have solved that problem ladies! This Paleo cracker recipe is pure protein and you can salt them or not, it’s up to you. I will tell you that if you do salt them, you satisfy that salt craving better than any junk food will and you do not eat as many because they are more filling.

The other super thing about this recipe is that it has just 2 ingredients as the base and the rest is up to your imagination and taste.

Paleo Cracker Recipe


1 c almond flour

1 egg white

Optional – sea salt

Parchment paper


Preheat oven to 350F

Place your flour in a small bowl. Add the egg white and work into a thick paste. Add any seasoning you like. I added sesame seeds to make sesame crackers that were very yummy. You could add dried vegetable bouillon if you want to make vegetable thins or experiment with various herbs such as rosemary and garlic or garlic and Parmesan. Really you are only limited by your imagination.

Line a cookie sheet with parchment paper (important as you will not get them out of the pan without it).

Now spoon the mixture into the center of the pan. Place another piece of parchment paper over top and use a rolling pin to roll it out very thin. It should roll out to almost the full size of your cookie sheet.

Remove the top layer of parchment and score the dough into whatever cracker size and shape you want. I use a pizza cutter for this but you can use a knife. Sprinkle the top with sea salt or Kosher salt if you are using it.

Now pop them into the oven. Keep an eye on them. It only takes about 5 minutes for them to turn a nice golden color. Don’t overcook them as they will get a bit of a burnt taste to them which is not very appealing. If the edges get done before the inner crackers remove those from the pan and pop the rest back in for a few more minutes.

  1. These are so tasty!! And super easy to make. Mine took about 15 minutes to get golden brown (but it was also a humid Florida day). All I added was salt and pepper…..I had to shoo my husband out of the kitchen before he ate all of them! Thanks for the great recipe!

    • lol I am glad you (and your hubby) liked them. They are addictive! But the nice thing is that they are so easy to make and use so few ingredients so they really are an anytime Paleo snack.

  2. Okay, here’s what I did. They were really good. I combined your recipe with another, and then added my own special touches. Two cups almond flour, kosher salt, pepper, sesame seeds, and fennel seeds. My wet ingredients included one egg white, one TBSP of olive oil, two TBSP of water and a quarter TSP of coconut oil. I baked them for 10 minutes and then turned the oven off and let them sit for another 10. I’ll be making these again!

    • Thanks for sharing your modifications Kelly. The added oils will make them even more satisfying and any time you can consume more coconut oil is always a good thing. I will have to give that a try.

  3. Hi, I just pulled your recipe up to try it out but only have almond meal, is this the same as the flour or not? And will it still work?

  4. I love this recipe! Just made two batches, one with sesame seeds, and one with chia seeds (about 1&1/2 tbsp in each). Yum! Thanks so much!

  5. Tried this once. My husband and i both love them and will take them with cheese and meat to family gatherings. I made it exactly according to the recipe, except it took 25 minutes to get brown and crispy. This time (they are in the oven now), I used a whole egg and a little more almond meal. I expect them to be wonderful!

    • Glad you liked them Marianna! I have tried just about every flavor additive imaginable and they always taste yummy. The basic recipe is like a blank pallet. You add your own touches and come up with all kinds of little masterpieces lol
