How to Make Low Carb Cauliflower Crackers

I must tell you right now that this recipe is not for the faint of heart. After all, it takes a bit of manipulation to transform a vegetable that is 92 percent water into distinctively delectable crackling morsels that in no way resemble their original constituents.

Don’t let that detour you, if I can do it so can you! A little steaming, a little chopping, a bit of squeezing, mixing and toasting, that doesn’t sound too hard now, does it? It is nothing you can’t handle.

There is no microwaving in this recipe. I have seen many versions of cauliflower crackers that tell you to microwave the cauliflower. Why?

I wanted to create a healthy nourishing and digestible cracker, therefore no microwaving.

Coconut flour, flax, and chia seeds offer nutrients, flavor, and are the binding force to the mix. Baking alone will not produce the desired crunch.

We must also make sure the crackers are dried to perfection. Allowing them to rest in a warm oven for a while will do just that.

Ingredients

  • 1 head of cauliflower, 1 pound
  • 2 tablespoons ground flax seeds
  • 2 tablespoons ground chia seeds
  • 2 tablespoons coconut flour
  • 2 tablespoons of nutritional yeast
  • 2 tablespoons of sesame seeds
  • ½ teaspoon lemon pepper
  • 1 teaspoon salt
  • 1 pinch of cayenne pepper

Instructions

  1. Wash, clean, and cut the cauliflower into chunks, Place in a steamer basket in a large pot with 1-2 inches of water. Cover with a lid, bring the ,water to a boil and steam for 3-5 minutes.
  2. Cool the cauliflower, then chop in a food processor to small even pieces. Place the cauliflower in a cheese cloth or flour sack towel and squeeze out most of the liquid.
  3. Heat the oven to 400 degrees F. Place all ingredients in a bowl and mix well. Let it sit for 10 minutes. Roll out the mixture between 2 sheets of parchment paper, to 1/8 - 1/4inch thick, forming it into a large rectangle.
  4. Remove the top sheet of parchment. Bake for 15-20 minutes until lightly browned, cover with another baking sheet and flip the pan over. Bake for 15-20 minutes. Turn off the oven.
  5. Cut into crackers with a knife or pizza cutter. Place the crackers back in the oven, and allow them to slowly cool and dry until the oven is just barely warm and the chips are crisp, 1-2 hours.

Recipe Notes

NOTES: If in a hurry, buy frozen steamed riced cauliflower. Allow it to thaw and start from the squeezing process. Store in an air tight container.

    I’m confused about the 4th step. Do I keep the pan covered with the second pan inside the oven while it bakes a second time again?

    • Sommer Collierposted December 6, 2018 at 6:35 am Reply

      Hi Olive,

      Sorry about that! You just place another pan over the top, so that when you flip them, the crackers are still on a baking sheet, not on the floor. You do not bake them covered. Does that make sense?

  2. Rachelposted October 24, 2018 at 3:30 pm Reply

    How can this recipe have an entire head of cauliflower but have 0g dietary fiber? Is that a typo?

    • Sommer Collierposted October 30, 2018 at 10:45 pm Reply

      Hi Rachel,

      That does seem off. I’ll double-check it with another app.

    What a great recipe! Can’t wait to try it. How much do you think would be one serving? How many crackers?

    I can not get to the actual recipe, I have clicked on both page 2 and on the box “click here to get the recipe” and it just takes me back o the beginning of the page with the pictures and description. Would really like to try this recipe.

    Pretty easy.  A nice change.  I omitted the lemon pepper & used a spicy pepper blend.  They turned out nice & crisp.

    I’ve never used nutritional yeast and see there is large and mini flake. Which did you use?

    • Aprilposted February 19, 2018 at 10:18 pm Reply

      I used the large flakes of nutritional yeast just because that is what I had on hand. Either one will do, it will break up and be blended in with the other ingredients.

    Can frozen cauliflower rice be used instead of fresh?

    • Aprilposted February 19, 2018 at 10:09 pm Reply

      I have made this recipe with frozen cauliflower and it works great. You don’t have to steam it. Just thaw and go right to the chopping and squeezing steps. If you buy the riced version you won’t even need to chop it..

    What is the Cholesterol count in the cauliflower cracker recipe?

    • Rachelposted February 17, 2018 at 12:01 am Reply

      There is zero cholesterol. Cholesterol only comes from animals (meat) and things made by animals (eggs, milk, butter etc.) and we humans also make cholesterol within our bodies, just like other animals do.

    What can you use in place of coconut flour? I have the rest of the ingredients. I am not vegan, but I am trying to eat healthier. I thought I may use them as a chip replacement at special occasions.

      Almond flour is my first choice to replace coconut flour.

  11. Karaposted February 16, 2018 at 11:07 am Reply

    Can you substitute almond flour in place of coconut flour? My husband is diet controlled diabetic and there are less cabs in almond flour.

    • Bellahposted February 17, 2018 at 12:54 pm Reply

      Yes, I substituted the coconut flour for equal amounts of alond flour and it worked just fine.

      • Bellahposted February 17, 2018 at 12:55 pm

        Almond*

      • Aprilposted February 19, 2018 at 10:03 pm

        Yes, almond flour is a great substitute for the coconut flour. It has a wonderful flavor. I have used both. I would use 3 tablespoons for a better consistency.

    Is there a printed version of the recipe. I am not finding the amounts , directions and temperatures for this. There are pretty photos and an enthusiastic description, but not any details. Would love to try it if I can get the detailed instructions.
