"Bread" / Crackers (very low carb!)

Here is a great recipe for low-carb bread / crackers, that hardly has any carbs in them!
This is actually flat bread, crackers (call them what you want), that you can eat when on the LCHF diet! :-)

Perfect for an occation when you want cheese & crackers, or if you just crave bread, and want to eat it with some regular cheese or ham or whatever you prefer.


Sesame seeds, 1/2 cup
Flax seed (linseed), 1/2 cup
1 teaspoon Locust bean gum (can skip this)
or 1 teaspoon psyllium husk fiber (can skip this) (they sell it at Whole Foods)

1 small teaspoon of salt
3 tablespoons of almond flour (don't need this if you don't have it)
2 eggs
1/2 cup of melted butter
1 teaspoon of provence spice or other (optional)
Nuts, chopped, like almonds (optional)

Mix everything. Spread out as thin as you can, and then use a sharp knife to press down carefully to help seperate in pieces. (See pictures below)
Then bake in the oven for 15-20 minutes at 350 degrees Fahrenheit  (175 degrees Celcius)


Enjoy!! :-)

Here's another batch of low-carb crackers, made from only these ingredients:
linseed, butter, eggs, almonds (chopped), a teaspoon of salt, and a teaspoon of sweetener (splenda).
It still stuck together with only those ingredients(smear it out as thin as you can, but with no holes inbetween).

PS. just make sure you don't eat too many cups of linseed per day. The recommended daily intake is 1-2 spoons of linseed, but half a cup is probably okay, and you can also eat the batch over several days, as there's as much as 15 pieces in the first recipe above. Just keep them airtight in plastic somewhere cool, or on the counter if eaten the next day.

  1. Didn't have sesame seeds, mixed chai seed,hemp hearts and ground up sunflower seed make 1/2 cup. Turned out great. These are very forgiving. Great for experimenting a little!😊
