Now that we’ve covered the reasons why this SCD gluten-free crackers recipe is so special, let’s get down to the fun part: cooking! Follow these easy steps to create some delicious, healthy crackers.


  • 4 cups almond flour
  • 1 cup grated parmesan cheese
  • 1 minced garlic clove
  • ½ cup cottage cheese
  • ¼ cup butter (melted)
  • 2 eggs
  • 2 tsp salt
  • 1 tsp baking soda


  1. Firstly, preheat your oven to 350 degrees F.
  2. Combine all of your ingredients in a large mixing bowl and mix until you have a uniform dough.
  3. Using a rolling pin, roll out the dough into a thin layer on top of a piece of parchment paper, until it’s about ⅛” thick or thinner. It may help to divide the dough into four pieces at this point to make it more manageable.
  4. Cut the dough into squares or rectangles with a sharp knife or pizza cutter, so they are evenly sized for consistent baking.
  5. Place the crackers on a baking sheet lined with another piece of parchment paper, making sure they aren’t touching each other.
  6. Bake for about 12-15 minutes, or until the edges are golden brown and crispy.
  7. Once they’re done, leave them in the oven for an additional few minutes with the heat turned off to give them more crunch.
  8. Serve immediately and enjoy your delicious homemade crackers!

These crackers will stay fresh in an air-tight container for up to one week after being baked.

So there you have it – a simple easy recipe for crunchy graham crackers that are also gluten-free and perfect for those on low-carbohydrate diets like SCD paleo keto diets  and grain-free or dairy-free diets!

Substitutions and Variations

Being creative with your cooking often inspires delicious and exciting culinary discoveries. That’s why I made sure to include a few substitutions and variations that you can make to this gluten-free cracker recipe.

1. Try using different cheeses – instead of the parmesan cheese, experiment with cheddar or cottage cheese for a different flavor profile. You could even try a blend of cheeses!

2. Add herbs & spices – elevate the flavors in your crackers by incorporating some minced garlic cloves or rosemary for a herby taste. A pinch of ground black pepper or sea salt can go a long way too.

3. Almond flour swaps – if you don’t have almond flour, you can swap it out for other grain-free flours such as coconut flour or even plain rice flour. Though, keep in mind that rice flour is not SCD or Paleo-friendly.

4. Use dairy substitutes – If you’re following a dairy-free diet, use coconut oil or olive oil instead of butter into the recipe, cashew cheese instead of parm cheese and vegan cottage cheese.

5. Get creative with shapes – Keep things fun and interesting by trying out different shapes like squares, rectangles or triangles using cookie cutters.

Remember, experimenting with recipes doesn’t always have to be complicated, so feel free to get creative and try any variation you see fit!
