Want the healthiest and tastiest July 4th snack ever made? While still enjoying a vegan, gluten free, vitamin-rich food the whole family and all the guests will love?
Well now you can.
It’s called the Vegan Crunch Cheesy Cracker, and it’s virtually guaranteed to be a party favorite.
This cheesy-cracker is crispy outside and soft on the inside - just like a puff pastry but without the guilt.
Made of high-fiber rolled oat flour and almond flour, this cracker gives you a delightfully creamy taste and texture while packing a powerful crunch at the same time!
You’ll also get a special bonus crunch from sesame seeds and hemp seeds -- which deliver another layer of nutrition goodness.
But it gets even better.
In fact, the most wonderful ingredient in this recipe is nutritional yeast -- high in protein and rich in B vitamins, you get an awesome cheesy flavor that brings this snack to a whole new level.
The garlic powder, himalayan salt, black peppers and fresh basil tops off this flavor explosion.
