First, you see them: irresistible to the eye. Then you bite into one: crispy, crunchy, and instantly addictive. The first time I made a batch of these Dried Cherry Seed Crisps the kids and I had one, then another, then another. It's a good thing they're packed with so many nutritious ingredients as we almost knocked off the entire batch in one sitting.
What are they, you might ask? Have you ever tried Rainforest Crisps? They're a slightly sweet, crispy cracker you can find them at most health food stores -- even Trader Joe's has their own version -- but they're not exactly cheap and once there gone you'll find yourself immediately wanting to open another package. Luckily this recipe makes a good deal more crackers than the packaged brands, which come with a lot less.
I wanted my version of Rainforest Crisps to be suitable for snack or school lunch at nut-free schools, so I omitted the nuts and used only seeds. They are full of protein and contain to eggs. They are satisfyingly crunchy and the dried cherries give them just the right amount of sweetness. I suggest doubling the recipe because they're going to go fast!
