What do most desserts have in common? They’re soft and sweet, and thoroughly addicting. But after several days (weeks, if we’re honest) of downing trifle and snickerdoodles, you eventually begin to crave something with a little more substance. That’s where we come in. Here are five snack recipes with a crispbread base (that’s right, we’re leaving the regular crackers behind) that will satiate that hankering you’ve had for something satisfyingly crunchy and wholesome.
Craving a Crunch? Here are 5 Satisfying Snack Recipes to Try
1. Winter Avocado Toast Crispbreads
Not your average avocado toast. This version calls for seasonal winter fruits, like blood oranges, grapefruits and pomegranate, as well as sliced avocado (as opposed to your traditional mashed) for a vibrant, colorful graze. All this goodness sits atop a Wasa® Whole Grain Crispbread for a breakfast, lunch or afternoon snack for your senses—we can almost smell the citrus just looking at this photo.
2. French Onion Crispbread
If the thought of french onion soup gives you warm and cozy feelings, then this snack will not disappoint. Onion, butter, gruyère and dry white wine all come together for a *chef's kiss* snacking event. Piled onto medium-bodied pieces of Wasa® Sourdough Crispbread that have been toasted under the broiler with melted cheese, you’ll even impress your toughest critics at home with this one.
3. Gochujang Chicken Salad On Gluten Free Crispbread
Chicken salad doesn’t need to be eaten by the sandwich-full. In fact, we think it can be even better bite-size. This recipe calls for gluten-free gochujang (a condiment popular in Korean cuisine, also known as red chili paste) to flavor the salad with a sweet and spicy kick, and fresh avocado to balance it out with a creamy texture. Place a generous spoonful onto a Wasa® Gluten-Free Sesame and Sea Salt Crispbread (they’re made with potato starch and amaranth, an ancient grain that’s naturally gluten-free), and finally, garnish with cilantro and sesame seeds for even more depth of flavor. Don't skimp on the toppings, either. Wasa crispbreads are a wholesome base that won't crack under the pressure of your culinary creations, so you can see how good stacks up.
4. Crispbreads With Blackberries And Toasted Coconut
When it comes to a nutritious sweet snack, fruit and yogurt fit the bill. But by no means do you have to forgo the crunch. Simply combine yogurt and orange zest in a small bowl, spread generously onto your Wasa® Whole Grain Crispbread and top with blackberries and coconut. If you lead a busy or active life, this stacks up as a perfect, satisfying snack any time you need it—this winter and beyond. It's super quick to make, and if you stock your pantry with Wasa crispbreads now, you'll be ready any time a snack craving strikes.
5. Nordic Breakfast
An open-faced sandwich is a very common Scandinavian breakfast, and this classic Nordic Breakfast on Wasa crispbread hits the spot. To make this savory stack, spread your Wasa® Light Rye Crispbreads with herbed cheese (like Boursin or Rondelé), then top with thinly sliced cold-smoked salmon or gravlax, spring mix and poached eggs. Grind black pepper over the eggs for good measure and enjoy.
