3 ingredient, very low carb crackers



Anyone who follows my instagram or twitter will know how excited I have been about these crackers, which are very low carb and only have three ingredients (sort of!), and are so so quick to make.


I always think on Atkins/ low carb diets, there are lots of sandwich filings/ cracker toppings that you can have but very little to put them on and this recipe seems to have solved that problem!


I say three ingredients though it is slightly more but I have closed mixed nuts as one ingredient because I bought a pot of mixed nuts and seeds and just poured them into the bowl, but it may be more ingredients if you choose to get lots of different nuts and seeds and mix them all together yourself. Whichever way you do it they’re still very very quick and easy to make!


You will need:


  • 300g Mixednuts and seeds- I used a mixture of pistachios, cashews, peanuts, macadamia and sunflower and sesame seeds
  • 1 egg
  • 2 tbsp cold stock, or you can use water for speed.




  • Put the nuts and seeds into a blender and blitz until they are all broken up into a reasonable smooth mixture
  • Transfer into a bowl
  • Add the egg and water and mix well with a spoon until it forms a stiff dough
  • Tip the mixture onto a sheet of greaseproof paper or a Teflon or silicone sheet
  • Roll it out with a rolling pin, or press it down with a spoon until the mixture is thin and forms a reasonable square shape
  • Put into the oven at 180 degrees for 10-15 minutes
  • Remove from the oven and cut into the shapes that you want, and cut it into a mixture of long thin rectangles and smaller squares
  • Leave to cool and harden completely.
  • Enjoy!
