If you are trying to cut back on your carbs and overly processed foods, it generally means buying low carb crackers from the supermarket is a no go, unless you want to pay a fortune for a very niche product. I was inspired to make these delicious and really simple to make Sesame Chia Parmesan Crackers, after I found a packet in my local supermarket in Sydney that looked great, but were going to cost nearly $10 for a very small amount of crackers. Now that’s a lot of money to spend on crackers, so I decided to try to replicate the recipe, which I did with great success.

This recipe not only tastes brilliant but is also healthier than the original cracker, as I have also added chia seeds and increased the amount of sesame seeds used.  By increasing the ratio of seeds to cheese, I’ve upped the nutritional value of these crackers.

Aside from the amazing taste of these Sesame Chia Parmesan Crackers, they only require 3 ingredients to make and literally only take 10 minutes to cook. So, these are cheap to make, they taste amazing and they are really simple to cook and in very little time. What is not to love about that? I also love the contrast of the top to the bottom of these crackers. The seeds tend to settle more on the bottom so the crackers are darker underneath and lighter on top. They look really good.

These crackers taste great using black sesame seeds and chia seeds, but you could easily switch the seeds for poppy seeds or your regular sesame seeds. Make sure you mix the seeds through with the cheese so they are evenly distributed. You may end up with a few wasted seeds at the bottom of the pan, if they haven’t been taken up by the cheese. Try to make sure the cheese does cover the base of whatever mini cup cake pan you use, otherwise you will end up with holes in your crackers. Not that it really matters, as these are artisan biscuits and will look fantastic regardless.

There is no need to add any salt or additional flavorings such as onion or garlic powder, to this recipe as there is plenty of salt and flavor in the cheese, and they would end up being overpowering in taste. An alternative way to bake these is to create mounds with the grated Parmesan cheese and simply sprinkling the seeds on top of each mound before baking for the same amount of time. I personally prefer the look of the premixed crackers as I love how they cook with the seeds on the back, but I will leave that up to you. 

If you are interested in some other fantastic low carb cracker recipes, I highly recommend you try making Low Carb Almond Seed Crackers, Low Carb Healthy Crackers (which are bit plainer,) or this recipe for a really nutty seedy cracker, Low Carb Seed Crackers.

Ingredients

  • 75 gms Parmesan cheese grated not large shreds
  • 1 tablespoon chia seeds black or white
  • 2 tablespoons black sesame seeds

Instructions

  • Preheat oven to 190 C/374 F fan forced
  • Mix all ingredients together.
  • Place teaspoonfuls of mix in the base of a small silicon cupcake pan. You could also place in piles on a piece of quality baking paper on a large tray, but may have to shape them a little.
  • Cook for 10- 12 minutes or until the cheese melts into crackers, taking care not to overcook. If you under cook them they will be soft. The trick is to cook them till they brown but not too much or they will taste burnt. You want them crispy.
  • Allow to cool slightly before tipping out onto a rack to cool completely. Store in an airtight container for up to a week.

Recipe Notes

You can use herbs, nuts, spice mixes and other flavorings to vary the taste of these crackers. They also taste amazing made just with cheese.
Vary the cheese that you use. I like to buy tasty cheese slices and cut them into quarters and cook them exactly the same way.
