I already count myself as a super fan of Simple Mills. Their line of paleo-friendly, gluten-free, grain-free baking mixes make clean eating effortlessly delicious. Recently, they expanded their product line to include almond flour crackers, which totally had me biting at the bit to give them a try.
What’s really cool about these new crackers is that they were crafted with care to be both delicious and good-for-you, as the company’s baking mixes are. With minimal ingredients, and quality baked into every bite, these are not your ordinary pantry crackers, and are definitely an upgrade to any snack break.
Simple Mills’ new line of almond flour crackers has four varieties in it’s line up: sea salt, rosemary, sun dried tomato and basil and farmhouse cheddar. The latter is the only one that contains dairy, so avoid that variety if dairy is off limits for you.

One of the packaging features I love about Simple Mills is that they take the time (and space) to educate you about the importance of the ingredients they use. I love learning about why plant-based ingredients are so important, and even gained a lot more respect for ingredients I eat on a regular basis!
The sea salt variety was the first I tried, the crackers I immediately fell in love with their crispiness. The crackers have a nutty flavor, but it’s not too overpowering or off-putting. Dusted with salt, they definitely satisfied my salty snack cravings, and are versatile enough to pair with guacamole, dips, or cheese (if that’s you’re thing). I almost ate the whole box in one sitting, and definitely would buy these over and over again. Coming from a non-cracker lover, that’s pretty high praise if I say so myself.
If the sea salt crackers were amazing, the rosemary were completely and totally mind-blowing. Just as crisp and crunchy as their plainer counterparts, these were loaded with rosemary, onion, and garlic, which created a flavor combination that totally appeased my spice-loving taste buds. The rosemary game is strong, so these are not as versatile to be paired with dips or toppings, but they really stand strongly on their own, and I had no problem finishing off my sample box (crumbs included) in one sitting. These definitely were my favorite of the two, though both varieties earned a hearty two thumbs up from me.
