Have you ever had the fruit and nut crackers from Trader Joes? Or the fancy section of your grocery store?
The crackers that are way too expensive but you know are probably very delicious. Well, now you can have them anytime and at a much more reasonable cost. I adapted this recipe from Girl Vs Dough blog and will link her page below. These are baked as a loaf at first and then sliced and baked a second time. You can add all your favorites. I put cashews, craisins, kalamata olives and flax seeds. They are delicious on their own but even better with some white cheddar sandwiched in between. Put these on your holiday platters and all your guests will be impressed :)

1 cup flour (All Purpose)

2. Mix the flour with the cashes, craisins, olives, flax seed, brown sugar, salt, and baking soda.
3. Add the milk and mix until combined.
4. Pour into two greased 5 1/2 by 3 inch mini loaf pans.
5. Bake 30-40 minutes or until a knife comes out clean. Allow to cool completely (I cooled overnight).
