Eating nuts and seeds and other gluten-free snacks are one of the ways I keep myself from seeking out carb-filled, but nutrient-sparse snacks when I need a little something savory between meals. To this end, I keep a container of nuts and these gluten-free crackers both in my car and in my pantry. They fill the void when I really want something a little salty mid-afternoon.
I found this gluten-free recipe several years ago on OhSheGlows and have been making them on a regular basis since. My husband renamed them ‘Birdseed Crackers’ the first time he looked at them given the similarity to that which we feed our feathered friends in the backyard. However, once he tasted them, he was a convert.
As is the case with most of my recipes, I alter them slightly each time I make them. If you don’t have an issue with milk products, they’re great with a bit of grated Parmesan cheese, Italian herbs and garlic salt mixed in. I recently added some nutritional yeast which gave the crackers a bit of a Parmesan cheese taste, if you needed to avoid milk products. Some other tasty options are thyme, cumin or curry (not mixed all together).
I like to top the crackers with a slice of avocado or use them as dippers for hummus, but they are great on their own too.
Let me know what variations you use when you make them. Always looking to change things up.
