Homemade Cinnamon Cardamom Crackers with FAGE TruBlend Yogurt

This post is sponsored by FAGE; however, all thoughts and opinions expressed are my own.
Deliciously crunchy and ever so slightly salty, these Homemade Crackers with a hint of cinnamon and cardamom are delicious stacked with fruit and Fage TruBlend.

To me, there is something special about the early morning hours. A certain calm that is prevalent when it feels like everyone else is still sleeping.

During the work-week, I enjoy the early morning hours with a cup of coffee and a wholesome breakfast that sometimes includes this delicious Apple Walnut Granola with a side of FAGE Greek Yogurt.

When it comes to Greek Yogurt, FAGE is our first choice. My daughter and I don’t just reserve FAGE for the work-week. Very often on weekends we enjoy it in these Pumpkin Yogurt Pancakes or as a side to these Oatmeal Pancakes or Oatmeal Waffles. Sometimes even, we use it in a curry like this Chickpea Carrot Curry.

This past weekend, when I was at the store looking for FAGE Greek Yogurt, I came across FAGE TruBlend.

3 containers of No Sugar Added Fage TruBlend

The packaging on FAGE Trublend specified that it contained no added sugar or sweeteners and as I’m trying to consume less refined sugar these days, I figured I’d bring home some to try.

And, I gotta say, FAGE Trublend does not disappoint. It is just as creamy and rich as other FAGE products I’ve tried.

FAGE Trublend is made of 100% natural ingredients like real fruits such as blueberries, strawberries and peaches that are blended with FAGE low-fat Greek yogurt. FAGE TruBlend has a perfectly balanced sweet taste without added sugar or sweeteners.

Yes, that’s right, FAGE TruBlend has no added sugar* and no sweeteners!

Protein-packed, FAGE TruBlend is perfect for a quick breakfast with some fruit as well as for on the go snacking. FAGE TruBlend is Non-GMO Project Verified and is made with milk from non-GMO fed cows.

If, like me, you too decided to try and cut down on your refined sugar intake in 2020, FAGE TruBlend will fit perfectly into your new year goals!

Fruits and Cracker Board With Fage TruBlend

Over this year I plan on sharing several ways I plan on incorporating FAGE TruBlend into my day. But, for today, I have a rather interesting take on snacking with FAGE TruBlend.

What I have is a twist on the traditional cheese board. Today I have a homemade cracker, fruit and yogurt board.

Fruit & Cracker Snacks With Fage TruBlend on a platter

I’ve been making homemade crackers for awhile now – they are so easy and versatile to whip up. The homemade crackers you see here today contain cinnamon and cardamom. Those are two spices usually associated with a sweet treat, but today’s homemade crackers are not sweet.

Platter with Fruit Cracker Parfaits With Fage-TruBlend

Like FAGE TruBlend, they do not contain any added sugar, even though the cinnamon and cardamom seem to trick my brain into thinking they do. They are made with a smidge of salt, an egg white, almond flour and coconut oil – which makes them gluten-free and butter free as well.

If you would like to use flour instead of almond meal and butter instead of coconut oil, you will get a more rich, buttery cracker. But, I wanted something a little bit healthier so I could snack on a bunch – especially by dipping them in FAGE TruBlend or as a parfait with FAGE TruBlend and a smorgasboard of fruit like strawberries, blueberries, bananas, and papaya.

What my daughter accidentally discovered is that these homemade crackers make for a delicious and sturdy base for a slice of banana, a slice of strawberry and a blueberry, all sandwiched together with rich and creamy FAGE TruBlend!

Deliciously crunchy and creamy No Sugar Added Fage TruBlend is sandwiched between Fruit and crackers in these bites.

Homemade Crackers Recipe

Yield: 24 crackers
Prep Time: 10 minutes
Cook Time: 15 minutes
Total Time: 25 minutes

Deliciously crunchy and ever so slightly salty, these homemade crackers with a hint of cinnamon and cardamom are delicious stacked with fruit and Fage TruBlend.

Ingredients

  • 1 cup almond flour
  • 2 tbsp coconut oil (not melted)
  • 1 egg white
  • ¼ tsp salt
  • ½ tsp cinnamon
  • ¼ tsp cardamom

Instructions

  1. Preheat oven to 375 degrees.
  2. Add the almond flour, egg white, coconut oil, salt, cinnamon, and cardamom to a bowl and, using your hands, mix well until well incorporated.
  3. Then, flour a working surface and place dough on it.
  4. Roll out dough using a rolling pin and, cut small cracker shapes out using a small cookie cutter or design your own shapes with a pizza cutter.
  5. Poke holes in the crackers so steam can escape and crackers can cook evenly and place crackers on a silpat or parchment lined baking tray.
  6. Place tray in oven preheated to 375 degrees and let bake for 12-15 minutes.
  7. When you take crackers out of the oven, they will be somewhat soft so please do let them cool down to room temperature as they will harden as they cool.
  8. Enjoy these homemade crackers with fruit and yogurt, parfait style or as elegant little appetizers as seen in that last picture.
