Wholesome, hearty, and delicious: Doctor Kracker Organic & Artisan-Baked Seedlander Flatbreads

Written by: Hana Hsu

One of the hardest things for me to find is a healthy snack that satisfies my craving for crunch—something that’s not too heavy, salty, or sweet. Something that isn’t chips, or cookies, or nuts. I have to share with you my new favorite snack: Doctor Kracker’s Organic and Artisan-Baked Seedlander Flatbreads, which will make your tastebuds and your waistline happy.

I was curious but at first put off by the fact that it looked too wholesome. But I was amazed by how great it actually tasted. The crackers, about the size of a postcard, are also thicker than normal flatbread, which gives it its great crunch. The Seedlander flatbread has a nutty, slightly sweet taste but without any cane sugar. It tastes great by itself, but can also be a wonderful base for cheese, spreads, or dips.

Better yet, I could feel great that I was snacking healthily: I found out from its Web site that it is made out of “specially milled,

100% whole grain organic spelt flour, combined with organic pumpkin seeds, millet, sesame, flax, and poppy seeds.” More good stuff: the Seedlander is 100% USDA certified organic, and contains 18 grams of whole grains, 4 grams of protein, and 12% of our daily need for dietary fiber per cracker. Only 100 calories per cracker and 12 grams of carbohydrates, this also makes for a satisfying snack for those on low-carb diets. In fact, it’s the perfect snack to stave off a junk-food craving because the heartiness and crunch satisfies and is perfect with a bit of cheese or fruit.

Rachel Ray even featured Dr. Kracker’s snacker version of the Seedlander cracker on her show, as the September 30, 2010 snack of the day!
