Carrot and Seed Crackers
We love a great twist on a recipe, and the addition of carrot to a seed cracker recipe is no exception. Such a great way to add some extra veg into your diet. Being nut free, it's great little cracker for the lunchbox as well.
Recipe Tester Feedback: "I loved these crackers – I can't stop eating them. Must admit that I was unsure about them by the looks of the ingredients, but they are delicious even just on their own. I was a little skeptical with this one that they were going to be soggy, but they aren't at all. Nice and crunchy. Really love that these are nut free and school friendly. They will be on high rotation I think!" - Terri
