Fröknäcke a.k.a. Swedish Seed Crackers
Are you tired of the same food to snack on throughout the day? Well, this seed bark will blow your mind! It is so easy to make and healthy!
Let me tell you about Lena…
Early last year I met a lovely Swedish lady at the gym. Her name is Lena. Lena stayed in South Africa while her husband worked. Unfortunately, she went back to Sweden on the 1st of January 2017. We did Pilates and Splash classes together.
Throughout her stay in South Africa, she would often ask my opinion on some place and what to eat, etc. She and her family also traveled a lot while they were here – Kruger National Park, Pilanesberg Game Reserve, Drakensberg, seeing the Victoria Falls, etc, (so jealous). Because I am keen to learn other cultures, I would often ask her about what they ate in Sweden, about the people and the weather, etc. She would tell me all kind of stories of her home. She once told me about seed crackers that they make and love in Sweden. Being the nice person that she is, she brought me some to taste WITH the recipe just before she went back to Sweden. How nice?!
This Fröknäcke (Lena, correct me if I am wrong) that she makes uses corn flour. There are many recipes that use whole-wheat flour. For a LCHF diet some recipes use psyllium husks. The best thing about this is that it is gluten free (for those with gluten-intolerances) and filled with all of the goodness of seeds.
I have not tried making this with psyllium husks, but here is a recipe.
The ultimate savoury, healthy snack! This will be your favourite snack! You can also enjoy it for breakfast with cottage cheese, tomato, salt & pepper. Serve it at your next dinner party with tapenade and hummus.
Delicious! I made some yesterday and my husband literally ate half of it. Seems like I will be making this every second day! 🙂
Lena, thanks for sharing this fantastic recipe with me! I will miss our chats dearly! I wish you all the best for 2017 and who knows, maybe we will meet again someday.
