Crunchy crackers by Rens Kroes

Don’t get me wrong: I like my guilty pleasures once in a while. But usually I eat quite healthy and at least as pure as possible. A few years ago I changed my way of eating after reading more about the effects of food on your body and health. I tried what worked best for me; headaches disappeared and I got a lot more energy!

Rens Kroes is the it-girl when it comes to healthy but delicious recipes. In her beautiful cookbook “Power Food” she presents her favourite recipes for a happy and healthy lifestyle. From a nutritious breakfast full of vitamins to a rich chocolate cake; it’s all in the book! I’ve made several recipes from it already, but my favourite must be the crunchy crackers. Easy to make, perfect alternative for bread and great taste! Compared to the original recipe I left out the puffed amaranth because I couldn’t find it, and I also added less salt.

  4. Remove the top paper and cut the dough into small rectangles
