Servings: Makes approximately 24 cheese straws


  • 1 ½ cups almond flour
  • 1 ½ cups shredded sharp cheddar cheese
  • ¼ cup grated Parmesan cheese
  • 2 tablespoons unsalted butter, softened
  • 1 large egg
  • 1 teaspoon garlic powder
  • ½ teaspoon onion powder
  • ½ teaspoon dried thyme
  • ½ teaspoon salt
  • ¼ teaspoon black pepper


  1. Preheat your oven to 350°F (175°C) and line a baking sheet with parchment paper.
  2. In a large mixing bowl, combine the almond flour, shredded sharp cheddar cheese, grated Parmesan cheese, softened butter, egg, garlic powder, onion powder, dried thyme, salt, and black pepper.
  3. Mix all the ingredients until a dough forms, ensuring that the cheeses and other ingredients are evenly distributed.
  4. Divide the dough in half and shape each portion into a ball.
  5. Place one dough ball between two sheets of parchment paper and roll it out into a rectangular shape, about 1/8 inch thick. Repeat with the second dough ball.
  6. Use a knife or pizza cutter to cut the rolled-out dough into thin strips, about ½ inch wide and 4-5 inches long.
  7. Gently transfer the strips onto the prepared baking sheet, leaving a little space between each cheese straw.
  8. Bake the cheese straws in the preheated oven for 12-15 minutes, or until they turn golden brown and crispy.
  9. Once baked, remove the cheese straws from the oven and let them cool on a wire rack.
  10. Store the cooled keto cheese straws in an airtight container, and they will remain crispy for several days.
