These Cheesy Quinoa Crackers should come with a warning as they are seriously addictive.
I have managed to work my way through batches of them as I tried to perfect the recipe. Having good intentions to try only one from each batch, and to freeze the rest, I failed miserably. Not one single cracker made it to the freezer.
Of course, the boys share my love of these crackers and so I can’t be solely to blame. Some also made their way into Finn’s lunch box. They are great to add to lunchboxes or to have out and about for a snack.
What I love about this recipe is that it is great to make with the kids. My two year old loved being in charge of the food processor and my five-year-old loved kneading and rolling the dough. They both enjoyed cutting out the different shapes.
