It is always tricky to find good commercially made crackers with most either including unhealthy oils & fats, high levels of gluten, added sugars including high fructose corn syrup, or are made with non organic (& sometimes GMO) ingredients. This is a new recipe I've been loving - it's quick and easy, and the crackers include healthy fats, are nutrient dense, and are delicious and easy to make.
We use all organic ingredients
