Low Carb Dips | Keto Recipes
I LOVE dips. They are probably one of my all time favorite keto foods because of how versatile they are. You can make pretty much anything into a dip as long as you have cream cheese. They taste good dipped with everything from veggies to crackers. Here are our favorite keto dip recipes:
- Easy French Onion Dip– Break out your crackers because this dip is a home run. It’s salty and savory with a refreshing cream cheese base and strong onion flavor.
- Pizza Dip– Make this recipe the next time you are craving the cheesy goodness of mozzarella cheese in all its glory. It’s gooey, it’s saucy, and it’s oh so pepperon-o-ney?… You know what I mean tons of pepperoni ?
- Spinach Artichoke Dip– Spinach dip is a classic warm and creamy dip that pair great with pretty much any dipper. The next time you have a party; prepare some keto crackers and chop up veggies, because this dip is sure to be a crowd pleaser.
- Keto Queso– Normal queso is made with sugar and cornstarch to thicken and round out the flavor profile. Our keto queso captures that smooth flavor without any of the carbs and sugar.

Crackers really don’t need any special meats and that is what makes them so great! Some of our favorite meats to eat with crackers are:
- Pepperoni- Pepperoni, a little low carb sauce, and shredded mozzarella make the perfect pizza bite.
- Salami- Any cured dry sausage will work, we just love salami because it’s extra salty
- Proccutio- A little more expensive than other meats but worth the price. It has ribbons of fat and a silky texture that just melts in your mouth
- Summer Sausage- Be careful that the sausage you pick is low carb and doesn’t have any added sugar mixed in. The best way to get high quality summer sausage is by going to a local farm.
- Deli Meats- These are usually our last pick on a “fancy” charcuterie board, but we know for some people it’s their first! Thinly sliced turkey will never make us unhappy, so feel free to pick some up for your next board
There are tons of cheese options and we really could go on forever. Instead we broke down some main categories to pick your favorite types of cheeses.
- Aged Cheeses- These are your drier harder cheeses that have had time for the lactose to be eaten making them easier to digest.
- Soft Cheeses- Brie is an example of a soft cheese. They can be a little higher in carbs because they do have more of that lactose, but overall make great super creamy cheeses
- The Classics- Think your cheddars, mozzarellas, and munsters
One thing to note is cheese flavor actually becomes more refined and powerful if it’s come to room temperature, so leave it out for a few hours before serving and you’ll be wow-ed at the difference in flavor.
How to Make a Keto Charcuterie Board
Now that we’ve covered meat and cheese options it’s time to take it a step farther. The humble charcuterie board. This tasty board normally has a variety of meats and cheeses, but what all really goes into making those deliciously Instagram worthy boards? The basics to build the best keto charcuterie board are:
- Meats– This is an obvious one but meats are going to be the staple of a keto charcuterie board. The type of meats is up to you, but it is normally recommend you use cured meats as they can sit out longer than deli meats.
- Cheese– Again cheese choices are all up to you, but we love aged cheeses. Making a charcuterie board is all about trying new flavors so don’t be afraid to step out of your comfort zone. Aged cheeses also prevent upset stomachs because most of the lactose has been eaten away making them easier to digest(1).
- Crackers-Now’s the time for all those delicious keto crackers to shine! Take your pick of a store bought or home made variety and enjoy.
- Nuts– Nuts are a staple in our charcuterie boards. They add a saltiness and crunch that is different from crackers. We love getting fancy and buying seasoned nuts like spiced almonds, macadamia nuts and cashews.
- Olives– Olives are by no means a necessity as we know they aren’t always everyones favorite, however we love the fattiness of them and choose to include them in our boards. There are so many types of olives out there like green, black, and stuffed with a hundred things!
- Jams and Jellies– A good preserve always makes it on a charcuterie board because it adds a light sweetness that pairs with your meat and cheeses. We recommend picking a sugar free jam and using that in place of something like a fig preserve which has too much sugar.
- Foliage– Just as it sounds, this is greenery to make the board look good. It doesn’t necessarily add flavor, but it sure does look pretty! Add some berries and herbs to the board to look extra fancy.
Our Ideal Board- How we Make Ours
- Meat– Cured Salami, Cured Pepperoni, Local Summer Sausage
- Cheese– Aged Manchego, Sharp Cheddar, Brie Wheel
- Crackers– 1 Ingredient Flaxseed Crackers
- Nuts– Almonds roasted in olive oil and rosemary+ salt and pepper macadamia nuts
- Olives– Manzanilla Green Olives + Kalamata or other type of black olive
- Jams and Preserves- Sugar Free Jam like blueberry or apricot
That’s what we use in our boards, but feel free to change it up to put in your favorite ingredients. You can also deck out your board with herbs and fruit for a more gourmet look.
How to Make Keto Cheddar Crackers
Do you love Cheez- It crackers and want to know how to make keto crackers that taste just as good? This is just be the keto recipe for you. They’re made with almond flour (you can use almond meal) and each serving is packed with cheesy flavor. Finally a cheese cracker dough that is keto friendly made without refined carbs and gluten.
For this recipe you will need a food processor to blend together the cheese cracker dough. You will also need parchment paper as well as a baking sheet. We recommend a large baking sheet to ensure all the keto crackers fit and bake evenly. Finally you will need a rolling pin to go along with the parchment paper.
These low carb crackers use almond flour as the main flour base. The almond flour will bind together the cheese so you are left with crunchy and crispy cheese crackers that don’t crumble. We can’t have cheese crackers without the cheese so make sure to have cheddar and parmesan cheese. We added a pinch of salt and garlic powder but the seasonings you choose are optional. Finally you can add herbs or additional spices of choice. We love rosemary or thyme, but you can go non traditional with everything bagel seasoning instead.
Making Cheese Crackers
Now it’s time to make our cracker recipe. Begin by preheating the oven to 180C/350F. Then line a large baking sheet with a piece of parchment paper.
In a food processor combine the almond flour, cheddar, parmesan, salt, and garlic powder. You will want to pulse and then blend well until a dough forms together.
Cheese crackers can be a little crumbly from all the cheddar so don’t be afraid to microwave the dough for 20-30 seconds to allow the cheese to melt. Once it has melted slightly you can return it to the blender and pulse again. The dough might stay a bit crumbly, but it should stick together if you pinch it with your fingers.
Now transfer the cheese cracker recipe to a bowl and add your desired herb(s). The herbs are optional, but highly recommend. It really just depends on if you want a more upscale cracker, or a childhood cheez-it. Mix in the herbs well with a wooden spoon.
Place the dough onto a piece of parchment paper, and fold it over the dough (there should be parchment paper on top and on the bottom of your dough). If you skip the double layering your cheese cracker dough will stick to the rolling pin. Roll out the dough ¼ inch thick. Too thick and the crackers will be chewy, but too thin and they might break.
When the dough is rolled out you can use a pizza cutter to cut the cheese crackers into even squares.
Once all the squares are evenly cut sprinkle flakey salt on top.
Bake your cracker recipe for 10-12 minutes or until the cheese is golden on the edges. Remove from the oven and allow your crackers to cool completely. If they aren’t fully cooled they won’t be crispy enough. The cracker recipe can be stored in an airtight container at room temp for about a week.
