It’s no wonder so many people’s New Year’s resolution is to go on a diet. When I was a kid, the door bell would seemingly ring every hour leading up to the holidays with husbands delivering their wives’ sumptuous homemade baked goods. By the time Christmas arrived, we would have a kitchen full of fruitcakes, coffee cakes, cookies and tons of other delicious -- yet overly sweet -- treats that I remember my mother monitoring my every move around. By New Year’s Day, usually every crumb had disappeared.
Baking for others during the holidays is a tradition I enjoy carrying on, and this year I decided to make something for my friends and my kids’ teachers that's delicious, but a little bit on the lighter side. These Whole Wheat Seed Crackers have that home baked feel, are crisp and flavorful and, even though they are crackers, are pretty to look at. I feel better knowing that I’m giving people something that's a bit more healthy but still perfect for the holidays. Whether you put these crackers in a reusable glass jar, beautiful tin, Graze Organic bag or simply serve them straight out of the oven, I bet they'll be something memorable that people will ask you for again and again in coming years. And I promise you they have less calories than a Yule Log!
