Looking for healthy crunchy salty snacks? If you are a habitual chip and cheese and cracker muncher you’ve probably noticed that the calories can add up fast. It is easy to make what should be just a snack into an entire meal.

As a Certified Nutritionist, I know that many of my clients are not tempted by sweets, but they crave crunch and salt. Popcorn, which is a healthy whole grain, can be a good substitution.

Many of us love cheese and crackers. But this type of snacking can load on calories very quickly. How about a recipe that makes cheese into a cracker? You get the crunch and the salt and the cheese all in one thin cracker.

Add this simple recipe to your repertoire of healthier crunchy salty snacks. This snack is also appropriate if you are on a Keto diet.
