Healthy Goldfish Crackers Recipe

This low-carb goldfish crackers recipe is a bit sentimental for me since I grew up on processed, packaged goldfish crackers as a kid.

How to Make Homemade Goldfish Crackers

As you might imagine, cutting out dozens of tiny goldfish crackers can take a bit of time. If you want to save time and would enjoy a cracker that is more like a gluten-free Cheez-It, simply cut the dough into squares after you roll it out on the parchment paper, and then transfer the parchment paper (dough and all) to the baking sheet.

Grain-Free Goldfish Crackers

If you’re wondering if these are Paleo goldfish crackers, the answer is, I don’t know. It depends on what your definition of Paleo is. It depends on which foods your body can digest. It depends on what you consider a real food. I can tell you for sure though that these are grain-free goldfish crackers and that my boys and I love them!

Use Organic Dairy in Goldfish Crackers Recipe

Be sure to use organic dairy when you make this recipe. We use organic dairy in our house as it is better for the children, the cows, and our environment overall, and we do not wish to support the regular use of antibiotics in animal husbandry.

  1. These crackers sound delicious! I’m keen on trying them myself, as I love cheesy crackers.

    I was wondering if it’s possible to make keto crackers that are light and airy, like Ritz crackers (not sure if you have them there – I’m in Australia). My ten year old son loves cheese and crackers, and it’s often the only thing he will eat for his school lunch (that and tuna mayo sandwiches).

    I’m just starting keto again myself (for the second time) and I want to get him onto it as far as possible too, as I do think it’s a healthier way of eating than our usual carb-laden diet. But, I need to make it as painless and appealing as possible for my son, to get buy-in from him. He’s mildly autistic and has ADD, and as is fairly typical for children with these issues, he’s always been a fussy eater. But he loves to bake with me, so I hope that if he likes the results, it will encourage him to try more keto options. On the other hand, I worry that if he doesn’t like the results he’ll lose interest and will resist trying new things. So, it would be great if I could find really good substitutes for his favourite foods.
