Crackers don’t have to be processed, boxed and full of preservatives. These crackers are super easy to make and are every bit as crunchy and satisfying as the store-bought version. Call them Paleo-friendly, gluten free, grain free, soy free, or just plain nutty and delicious. Unlike other crackers, which are mostly just carbohydrate, they can stand alone as a “mini-meal” snack: They are packed with protein, fiber and healthy fats like omega-3 fatty acids.
