Low Carb Microwave Seed Crackers

Don’t you hate it when you run out of seed crackers! Although I have bought processed ones from the supermarket, there really is no comparison to eating home made seed crackers. I’m a cheese fiend which is why I love to have crackers on hand and of course they are great for dippers as well. My quest (yep..another quest) recently was to come up with a microwave recipe for seed crackers. I am very happy to say that my quest was extremely successful and this recipe for Low Carb Microwave Seed Crackers is absolutely brilliant.

The thing that I love about this recipe is that if I run out of crackers and know that I have people coming over, or need some in a hurry, I can make these in about 8 minutes. That includes preparation and cooking. How brilliant is that? Part of the problem with the seed cracker supply in my house is that my non keto friends love them and they eat them!! I think I’m going to have to hide them to prevent this happening. You know, sometimes I tell them they can’t eat my crackers….is that a bit rude???

This recipe would be perfect to make in the hot weather as well, when you don’t want to turn the oven on and would probably save on energy as well. If you want to see how easy it is to make these delicious crackers, check out the video below. If you aren’t sure about how you roll the crackers out you might find this particularly useful.

The Soft and Soggy Microwave Myth

I didn’t believe that I was going to be able to produce crispy seed crackers in the microwave. Don’t microwaves make food soggy? This recipe will show you how that is actually a myth. These Low Carb Microwave Seed Crackers are as crispy as oven baked crackers and they store for just as long. I was going to say last but seed crackers don’t really last in my house.

Just wait until you try these. Just remember that you are going to be limited by the size of your microwave, which is why the recipe doesn’t make a large number of crackers. You also may have to be flexible with the shape of your crackers, especially if you have a round microwave dish/platter as it will determine how you roll and shape your crackers. I’d just tell people that they are artisan crackers. You then have a creative license to do whatever you want to.

I hope you get around to making these because I think its a winning recipe.

    1. Thats a shame Debra. A couple of things that might possibly be an issue-
      -Make sure you use a large egg
      -Measure your seeds and psyllium precisely as chia seeds and psyllium in particular swell and absord moisture
      -The recipe uses psyllium husks not powder. If you use psyllium powder it will dry the mixture out as it is a lot more concentrated. I have never used psyllium powder in this recipe so am not sure how it fares, however generally you would use 1 teaspoon of psyllium powder where a recipe calls for 1 tablespoon of psyllium husks.
      -You could also try letting the mixture sit for a minute once mixed so it becomes more yielding.
      It’s worthwhile getting this recipe right as it is a great last minute recipe for seed crackers.

    These are the BEST!! I make them at least twice a week and why not when they are so quick and easy?! They’re super versatile too, sometimes I sub in some hemp seeds or pepitas depending on what I’ve got in the cupboard, or just season them with salt for a plain cracker and they’re ???? Thank you thank you for such a great recipe ????

    1. Thanks so much Ali. This recipe came out of a wing and a prayer and I was shocked at good the end result was.

    Thank you! I’ve been missing crunchy and also wondering how to get the flax, chia and psyllium husk I used to eat with morning cereal, and these are both! Delicious and so easy thank you soo much!

  4. Amazing! Crunchy, nutty, and delicious, super fast, but what’s best is… no hot oven in the summer here in Arizona. AND even better taste and texture than my usual oven baked seed crackers with fewer ingredients. Thank you so much for sharing your recipe.
