Spicy Parmesan Crisps
A Delicious Keto Snack Option
Do you love a little bit of spice in your food?
Even when making my Basil Parmesan Crisps I wanted to add some red pepper flakes, and had to remind myself not everyone likes or can have spicy food, and sometimes something mild is indeed a good thing.
However, if spice is your thing, then this recipe is for you! If you really like spice, add a little extra cayenne as I created this recipe more on the mild side.
If you don’t love spice, but love the flavor of southwest cooking, then feel free to cut down on the cayenne. They are still delicious without the extra pizzazz.
Not only are these keto crackers super delicious, they are super easy to make!
I like to buy the fresh grated parmesan cheese from your local supermarket to make the process a little easier. However, not all grocery stores have good parmesan cheese already grated, and you may have to buy it as a block and grate it with a parmesan cheese grater.
After you have the cheese grated and in a small mixing bowl, add your spices and mix everything until they are well incorporated. Spoon teaspoonfuls of the mixture on a baking sheet lined with parchment paper leaving about a half inch to an inch between each spoonful to allow room for spreading.
Bake for 7-9 minutes or until your crackers have turned golden and the middles of the crackers are crisp. Pull them out and let them cool completely before removing from the pan. Once cool eat to your heart’s content!
Warning – To accomplish this you may have to make more than one batch. 😉
For those of you new to the Keto or Low Carb diet please keep in mind we are here to help you learn to bake and are not nutritionists. What works for me and my goals may not work for you and your goals. Cheese is high in fats and calories, and if your goal is to lose weight, you may not want to eat large amounts of cheesy snacks.
