Toddlers eat snacks like nobody's business! I wanted to take a crack at making something from scratch for my son, and this post over at Weelicious looked like it fit the bill. This is really easy to put together - the only part that takes a while is cutting out all those little shapes. It makes a lot though, so it's totally worth the time investment. These are super crispy and have a lot of flavor. And my son loved them!
Just a few ingredients, and no junk. So much better than goldfish crackers. I used salt free Mrs. Dash seasoning, and they turned out awesome! Looks like we'll be snacking on these together!
