I’m a bachelor. Are there any
store bought crackers that would
somewhat fill the bill .
I don’t have time for baking or the know how.
Hey Robert! I swear these are super quick & easy to make – no skill required! If you want to buy crackers…I like MULTI-SEED CRACKERS by two brands: Crunchmaster or Back to Nature.

Dear Ms. Jackson Blatner, this looks absolutely wonderful! I’ve been craving a “raw”-type cracker ever since the local raw vegan restaurant closed, and we can’t get their dried crackers any more. And your seasonings suggestions make this very versatile! Thank you! Best, Mary
Hey Mary! I’m so glad you are excited! These crackers rock! Told you I was perfecting the recipe…and here it is! xo
Hi Dawn, these sound delicious! And, thanks for letting me know they would probably be great for me to eat even if I’m on a FODMAPs free diet. Given that I’m trying to avoid yeast for now too, curious if “nutritional yeast” is the same as other yeast products in breads. Or is it just a pure protein (like I read online)? Thanks again for all of your great guidance! – Rosie
These look GREAT! Can they be completely raw, meaning instead of cooking them, can I dehydrate them?
Hey Heather! Yes, you can dehydrate them. Probably will take about 18 hours, cut them into squares about 1/2 way through the dehydration time. Let me know how you like them!
What is nutritional yeast? Where do I find it?
Meet S. cerevisiae—yeast grown on sugarcane or beets, then deactivated, heated, washed, and packaged into bright-yellow flakes. Some call it the vegan Parmesan, but even meat-eaters can get behind its nutty, cheezy flavor and additional fiber and protein. Use it anywhere you’d normally reach for the Parm—in fact, I keep mine in a glass shaker in the fridge and use it for making vegan cheese sauces and dressings, as well as seasoning popcorn (delish). I buy it in the bulk section of the health food store so I can get just the amount I want and I look for brands that fortify with B12. Here’s a link: http://amzn.to/1JQJHQs
