When I picked up my PB2 at Lite for Life the other day, I grabbed a couple of other goodies. I found these crackers, made by Ener-G (they specialize in food for people with dietary restrictions). Seattle Crackers are free of gluten, wheat, casein, dairy, yeast, egg, soy, and nuts.
These crackers were light, crisp, and perfectly crunchy. They have a unique flavor which probably comes from the flour varieties that Ener-G uses (hi maize corn starch, brown rice flour, montina flour). I love them. Unfortunately the package only comes with 4 servings and did not last very long. They were expensive at Lite for Life ($6 something) so these will not be a regular treat. However, I would really like to try to make them in the future.
Seattle Cracker Ingredients: Filtered Water, Hi Maize Corn Starch, High Oleic Safflower Oil, Pear Juice Concentrate, Brown Rice Flour, Montina Flour (Perennial Bunch Grass, Achnatherum Hymenoides), Methylcellulose, Xanthan Gum, Salt.
Per serving (16 Seattle Crackers): 80 calories, 4.5 grams fat, 11 grams carbohydrates, 5 grams fiber, 0 grams protein.
Try them with PB2! Both of these products are addicting.
Ener-G also carries Cinnamon Crackers, which I sampled in the store. Light, crispy, and sweet (but not overly so), these crackers were nearly as delicious as the Seattle Crackers. I prefer my crackers plain, so that I can add the flavoring which is why I chose the Seattles. If you like the cinnamon sugar Stacy’s Pita Chips, check these out – they are a great (and healthier) alternative. They are also free of gluten, wheat, casein, dairy, yeast, egg, soy, nuts, and rice.
Cinnamon Sugar Crackers Ingredients: Filtered Water, Hi Maize Corn Starch, High Oleic Safflower Oil, Organic Tapioca Syrup, Yellow Corn Flour, Xanthan Gum, Methylcellulose, Evaporate Cane Juice Sugar, Cinnamon Powder, Salt.
Per serving (10 Cinnamon Sugar Crackers): 70 calories, 5 grams fat, 12 grams carbohydrates, 5 grams fiber, 0 grams protein.
I’ve had a lot of trouble locating Ener-G products in stores, and when I do they are ridiculously priced. I would suggest ordering from the website if you’re going to buy these. The shipping is reasonable, and they’re actually having a sale on the Seattle Crackers right now. I’m debating if I want to spend the money because I am currently trying to be as frugal as possible… But if you try them, let me know! OR if you have a recipe to make something similar, I will definitely try it out.
What are your favorite crackers? Mine are these Seattle Crackers, but I also love Kavli’s crackers (which are cheaper).
