Quick and easy grain free crackers made with mozzarella cheese and almond flour. You won’t believe how delicious these are!



  • 2 cups bagged shredded mozzarella cheese
  • 2 tablespoons cream cheese
  • 1 egg
  • 2/3 cups blanched almond flour
  • salt to taste (about 1/4 teaspoon is a good place to start)
  • 1/2 teaspoon flavoring of choice


  • Preheat oven to 425 degrees.
  • In a microwave-safe bowl (a 4-cup Pyrex measuring cup works well), add the mozzarella cheese and microwave on high for one minute.
  • Remove the bowl from the microwave, stir, and microwave again for 3 seconds.
  • Remove from the microwave and add the cream cheese, egg, and almond flour. Stir it together quickly while the cheese is still hot.
  • Roll the dough out to 1/4 inch thickness between two pieces of parchment paper.
  • Remove the top layer of parchment paper and use a sharp knife or pizza roller to cut the dough into squares.
  • Place the squares on a baking sheet lined with parchment or a baking mat.
  • Bake in hot oven for 5 minutes. Remove from oven, flip over all of the crackers, and bake for 5 more minutes until the crackers are golden brown on each side.
  • Let them cool completely on the pan. Store in an air-tight container.


  • Store-bought shredded cheese seems to work better than grating a block on your own.
