Family Favorite Snack

I don’t know about your family, but at our house, we love our snacks.

One snack that we all reach for is crispbread.

What is crispbread? It’s a cracker bread common in the Nordic countries, with each country having its own variation. It’s often made with a base of rye flour and can also contain other grains like oats and a variety of seeds.

Another snack that we love? Nuts, especially California walnuts.

Combine these two and what do you get? Scandinavian-Inspired Walnut Oat Crispbread of course! It’s similar to my Nordic Seedy Cracker bread but differs in the main ingredients.

Scandinavian-Inspired Walnut Oat Crispbread

This recipe shows that it’s not just seeds that can star in crispbread. By chopping up walnuts they work just as well. The end result is a delicious walnut oat crispbread that is nutrient-packed and perfect for snacking!

The rye and oats provide whole-grain carbohydrates and the walnuts and seeds provide healthy fat. The grains, walnuts, and seeds all also provide protein.

You can eat the crispbread plain if you need a quick snack, or top it with cheese, avocado, or hummus if you have a few extra minutes to spare.

This recipe makes 16 long crackers, about 8 servings, each serving providing a full 2 tablespoons of California walnuts!

Adding walnuts to your snack regime is a smart choice for many reasons. Here are just some of the benefits of walnuts:
