When I was a kid, my all-time favourite cracker was Breton Original Crackers. They were so delicious and I loved topping them with different condiments. When I discovered my gluten intolerance at around the age of 15, sadly I could no longer enjoy them the way I once had.
But who says all good things must come to an end? Thankfully, my favourite crackers got a gluten-free makeover, certified by the Canadian Celiac Association, and I’m thrilled to say that they taste fantastic. The first gluten-free option is Breton Bean Crackers; available in the delicious White Bean with Salt & Pepper and scrumptious Black Bean with Onion & Garlic. The second, which is perfect for snacking, is Breton Popped! Beans Cracker Chips; available in the tasty Sweet Chili Cheddar and snackalicious Sea Salt & Pepper
When I cracked open the boxes to taste test, my first thought was – yes, yes, yes!! They DID it. They kept the perfect tender-crisp texture and wholesome taste that I loved about the original Breton Crackers and created these delectable healthy snacks made with beans (top of the ingredient list!) and happily without preservatives or artificial flavours/colours.
Finding healthy, gluten-free choices is so important to me personally and to my family. I strive to either create recipes from scratch or purchase food products that are made with whole, nutritious gluten-free ingredients. It really pleases me that beans are the #1 ingredient in the new Breton Bean crackers and Breton Popped! Bean cracker chips. Not to mention that the crackers pack 3g fibre and 2g protein per serving and the Breton Popped! Bean Cracker Chips, made with chickpea and red bean, pack 2g fibre and 2g protein per serving. Now that is a snack I feel good about serving to my family.
There are so many ways to enjoy the new gluten-free crackers and cracker chips from Breton, but today I wanted to show you my favourite way. It’s simple! Load those crackers up with toppings and enjoy, enjoy, enjoy! As you can see, we did just that four different ways.
My question for you is, how do you eat your Breton Bean crackers? If you don’t know, you better find out, because you don’t know what you’re missing!
Out of all four new products, I’m leaning towards the Breton White Bean with Salt & Pepper Crackers as my #1. They have a light, crisp, flavourful bite that is tasty on it’s own, but is ideal for almost ANY topping. That said, I showed you how to layer both cracker styles, because I think they are both delicious.
By now, I bet you’re getting as excited as I was to try these new gluten-free crackers and cracker chips! Hop on over to Dare Food website and like Breton on Facebook for recipe ideas and more product info for these delicious gluten-free snacks.
