I have tried this recipe this week and it was a real winner. If you struggle to find regular flour, you can order almond flour from this online shop as this is what you need to make those crackers. You will find the full recipe here.
Popcorn is a great alternative to crisps. But please, do avoid the microwavable popcorn as it contains undesirable ingredients that are not good for the body. The best way to make it is to either use a popcorn maker (as you won’t need any oil) or you can make it with a little oil in a saucepan on the stove. I enjoy mine salty but you can, of course, have sweet popcorn. Just go easy with sugar. You will find the full instructions here.
Here are some topping ideas:
- cheesy nutritional yeast and salt

- everything seasoning
- smoked paprika and salt
- curry powder and cinnamon
- salt and pepper
- BBQ seasoning
