Crispy Dairy-Free Party Mix

Party gnome approve. Hope you enjoy it too!

 

Recipe: Sweet, Salty, Spicy, Crispy Party Mix

Summary: This mix combines an array of textures and flavors for a little bit of everything. It isn’t overly sweet or overly spicy as is, but you can certainly amp it up if desired. The flavors meld nicely when the mix is allowed to rest, so I make it earlty in the day or  night before and store in an airtight container. This recipe is adapted from the Cooking with Crispbread cookbook.

Ingredients

  • 1-1/2 Cups Broken Crispbread Pieces (I used the Rosemary WASA)
  • 1 Tablespoon Oil or Dairy-Free Margarine (I used coconut oil for a rich and buttery flavor without margarine)
  • 3/4 Cup Seeds and Nuts (I preferred sunflower seeds in this; almonds, cashews, and pumpkin seeds go nicely also)
  • 2 Teaspoons Brown Sugar
  • 2 Teaspoons Honey, Maple Syrup, or Agave Nectar
  • 2 Teaspoons Finely Chopped Fresh Rosemary
  • 1/2 Teaspoon Salt
  • 1/4 Teaspoon Cayenne (you can double it if you prefer the mix HOT, but this was enough heat for us)

Instructions

  1. Preheat your oven to 400ºF.
  2. Place the crispbread pieces and seeds or nuts on a baking sheet and spread them out.
  3. Toast the crispbread and seeds or nuts in the oven for 5 to 7 minutes.
  4. While that is toasting, melt the margarine or coconut oil and combine with the remaining ingredients.
  5. Place the toasted crispbread mix in a large bowl, and while still hot, pour on the oil/spice mixture. Stir to coat.
  6. The flavors meld more as it rests, so feel free to make a batch of this at night to enjoy the next day.

Cooking time: 5 minute(s)

    I haven’t tried these, but would absolutely love the chance to try them!!!

  2. Rena. Ash says:

    My 10 year old is dairy free and is turning into a picky pre teen and would love to try this product, it would open up new recipes for us! She really gets excited about new products as much as I do! She is learning to cook and this would open up more doors for her. She wants to become a baker for kids with food allergies when she grows up!

  3. Amanda D says:

    Sadly I have never had it, it looks and sounds so delicious though! I had no idea it was vegan friendly! This is very exciting news to find out even if I don’t win. It’s been years since I have stuffed my face with some flat bread.

  4. will you send me some mix you’ve already made?! That seems to be the best way for me to enjoy this 🙂

  5. Latonya R says:

    I love the pic and would love the cooking book as well! Great snacking!

  6. Josiane says:

    I like having crispbread either plain (and just enjoy the crispy deliciousness!) or covered in whatever is my spread of choice at that moment. 🙂

  7. Nowheymama says:

    What a nice birthday present this would make for me. 🙂

    I like crispbread as an appetizer, with dips and spread. My grandmother used to serve it all the time.

  8. nik says:

    I haven’t tried them yet…they sound really delicious and versatile. Thanks for the recipe!

  9. Joanne says:

    This may seem weird but…I love wasa crackers spread with peanut butter! They’re so low in calories that I can really lay it on thick.

  10. Cathe Olson says:

    I love Wasa crispbread with peanut butter too! I often take them for lunch along with a thermos of soup or a salad.

  11. Hannah says:

    Is this only open to America? As a kid, I had crispbread topped with Nuttelex and Vegemite 🙂

  12. I never thought to put it in snack mix, but that looks great! Because I love the crunch, I usually eat it along with a salad topped with tuna. It’s very satisfying 🙂

  13. Jessie C. says:

    I’d love to try crispbread , it looks so good!

  14. i love adding avocado, nutritional yeast and s&p to crispbread 🙂

  15. Courtney says:

    I have never had Wasa before, but I would love to try it!

  16. Angela says:

    I have not tried the crispbread yet, but i printed off the meatball recipe and we are planning to have them friday.

  17. Amy says:

    Thanks for the giveaway! I’ve not had crispbread yet, but have tried the wasa crackers before going GF.

  18. susitravl says:

  19. Lisa says:

    I love crispbread with nut butter and banana.

  20. Alexandra says:

    I love wasa and roasted eggplant spread. It’s perfect with a glass of wine and friends!

  21. Lisa L. says:

    I’m brand new to your site-today being my first. I have not tried them but now will add this to my shopping list. Excited to try your receipes too!

  22. Bethany S. says:

    I have never tried crispbread, but I would love to get them to use as breadcrumbs. It is near impossible to find dairy-free breadcrumbs in the store, and I need them for several recipes, including meatballs and chicken “parmesan”. It would be a great way to get whole grains into a meal!

  23. Catlyn L says:

    I’v never tried crispbread before but it looks delicious!

  24. Arlene says:

    I love Wasa!!! With almond butter is my fave!

  25. Jenny says:

    Never had it before, but we’re always looking for new foods to keep my dairy free, egg free toddler interested 🙂

  26. Jill B. says:

    I have never tried crispbread, but I will now. Going to buy it this weekend! Would love to win the gift pack too!

  27. Michelle W says:

    Never had any crispbread. Sounds very yum, tho!

  28. Jenny Feeney says:

    I love these with jam or ham on them. I spread dips on them. They also make a great treat for my nine month old son.

  29. Marsha says:

    I have enjoyed crispbread with hummus. I never would have thought to use it in a snack mix what a great idea.

  30. Elizabeth says:

    I’ve had them plain but the snack mix looks yummy!

  31. Ricki says:

    This sounds like such a fabulous snack, Alisa! I’d have to find a sub for the flatbread (which I used to eat ALL the time), but I’m sure other crackers/flatbreads would do just as well. Yum!

  32. Cheryl says:

    I have never tried any but would love to!

  33. Mari says:

    I like lox, tomato, cream cheese and onion on wasa.

  34. Michelle says:

    Just discovered Smart School Time Recipes for the Nook the other day, and I’m so glad I found this (and your website). Thank you for it, and for this giveaway!

  35. WHAT A GREAT IDEA!!! I need to pin this for the next time we have company!!

  36. PS–I never had a crispbread and would LOVE LOVE LOVE to try!

  37. Charlene says:

    Ive only ever spread peanut butter on them. Who knew there’s a whole cookbook!!!

  38. The snack mix sounds amazing! Max and I love crispbread! I have been snacking on them a lot lately as my snack while I’m at work!

  39. I love crispbread. For years my fav was Finn Crisp. It makes a great snack both at home, at work and on the go. It is healthy, low-fat, vegan- and Lent-friedly. When I was a student, I would pack a few crisp breads, some lettuce, apple, maybe saltless boiled meat and it would be my perfect lunch. Spread some Philadelphia cheese over crispbread, put a slice of salmon, sprinkle with some freshly squeezed lemon joice and top with some parsley or dill – and you are ready to throw a party:)

  40. bebe says:

    i love the party mix recipe. I love Wasa with laughing cow and apple slices, or cream cheese, tomatoes and marinated cucumbers

  41. Amanda says:

    Have not tried these, but after seeing the party mix recipe, would love to! Always on the lookout for new recipes since my son has been diagnosed with soy/dairy allergies.

  42. Lori says:

    I’ve had Wasa plain, with hummus or with peanut butter. I love it! I have never tried cooking with it though.

  43. Marie Walters says:

    I love crispbread. I have a dairy free tuna casserole recipe using a non-dairy roux with chicken broth added and then I mix a can of tuna.
    I make pasta (whatever is in the pantry). I coat the baking dish with margarine and crumbled Wasa.
    I then add the pasta and tuna sauce.
    I top with more crumbled crispbread and bake at 425 degrees for 15 minutes.
    The Wasa gives a crunchy texture that complements the casserole.
