I have been experimenting with cracker recipes because, well, I have a toddler and crackers make for an easy, slightly less messy snack. I like to have crackers on hand for car trips and “emergencies” (when a toddler is hungry, he/she is HUNGRY NOW) but I find that the “healthier” the product, the more expensive it is. These Grain-Free Graham Crackers taste like the real deal, but they are so much more nutritious!
Graham crackers are not something I would normally consider healthy, but these crackers (or would you consider them cookies?) only contain nuts, seeds, and natural sugars (dates and honey). They are perfect for a quick grab and go snack that packs a bit of nutrition and/or pair perfectly with a tall glass of milk. And don’t get me wrong, these Grain-Free Graham Cracker are definitely not just for children (I have eaten my fare share ;)).
The final product tastes just like a good-old-fashioned graham cracker; like the Teddy Grahams I used to eat as a kid. Their texture, however, is softer than most graham crackers – slightly chewy.
I will definitely be experimenting with more healthy snacks to have on hand because these were such a hit!
What is your favorite snack? Is there something that you used to eat as a child that you no longer consume or that you have made into a healthier version?
