There’s something about cheez-its that is so darn good. All that orangey cheese flavor, the crispy crunch, visible salt crystals on the surface. These crackers have been a standby for parents everywhere.
We’ve discussed in the past how to make your own cheesy crackers, but this recipe for Havarti Quinoa Crackers takes that to a whole new level! They’re classy, they’re elegant, they’re cheesy and refined.
They’re also healthy! The base is quinoa. This is a protein laden grain that has more protein that any other grain and a near perfect balance of essential amino acids (the building blocks of proteins). It also has phosphorous, riboflavin and iron. Also, they’re gluten free, so a great substitute if you have allergies.
Whipping these up only takes a few minutes and they’re a great snack to keep on hand, especially when you’re on the go– and let’s be honest, who ISN’T on the the go these days? Arla Dofino is a naturally good addition to any on-the-go snack. Their cheeses are naturally good from farm to fridge. The cheese is free of added hormones, artificial flavors and preservatives, and crafted with quality, naturally delicious ingredients.
Here’s a recipe to kick off that quinoa introduction, or a new take for those of you that are quinoa experts. And it’s got some great cheese flavor, thus making a cheese cracker your kids can enjoy while they get some great minerals and protein in return. It’s also fun, quick, and easy to make. Enjoy!
