Seed crackers with kale

I used to call it the mouth or floor test. If something is good, it made it to the mouth.

If it wasn’t so appealing it usually didn’t even get a second look before being casually tossed off the tray.

Yes this is how mealtimes used to go in our house when the boys were little (and I’m about to experience it all over again with our little lady).

These days I guess it’s similar they just use words to express their dislike (often rather harsh!) and it often drives me a little bit nuts.

I do love the challenge of coming up with something that passes the test though.

Originally I made these crackers for myself as a healthy snack. Have I told you about cocktail hour?

Just in case you’ve forgotten, for as long as I can remember there has always been cocktail hour in my house where you have a drink of something and a little snack (some chips, crackers, nuts).

This tradition came with me when I left home and Will took it up willingly (no pun intended) although these days, when we eat dinner by 6pm, cocktail hour is more a holiday thing.

Anyway, I try to keep my ‘cocktails’ healthy but like to mix them up a bit and when I saw this recipe I thought they’d be perfect.

As soon as they were dry I popped one in my mouth. I was holding it between my teeth when I picked the big boy up and he promptly ripped it from my mouth and shovelled it into his.

It was an instant success. He was about one at the time.

Since then I’ve also made a beetroot version by processing the meal with half a raw beetroot. I loved the added sweetness and so did my little guy.

These make a delicious snack on their own or the perfect gluten-free cracker. Enjoy!
