Healthy Seed Crackers

I love all things crispy and crunchy. But instead of going broke by buying expensive healthy seed crackers from health stores and artisans, or having processed boring pre-packed crackers, why not create your own healthy seed crackers. These gems are packed with fiber, nutrients, minerals and all things good for you and your gut. I truly believe that we all can eat a little bit more fiber these days.

I don’t necessarily love to eat nuts, seeds and oats. I mean I love fruits, cakes and ice creams, come on let’s be real here, shall we. But, I also know that nuts, seeds and oats are so good for us. So, it’s important to have them in my smoothies, on top of my salads or as a trail mix for a snack. But hey, it was time to switch something up and these seed crackers happen to be the ultimate 3-4 pm snack! They’re great on their own, but, if you’re feeling fancy, you can top them with a smear of nut butter, pesto or hummus.

I promise this recipe will not fail you! Get your ingredients and let’s make these easy healthy seed crackers!
