I LOVE Wheat Thin crackers but I don’t keep them in the house because I have ZERO control over myself with them. I suppose that’s why they’re called CRACK-ers.
Here are the stats on regular wheat thins:
Calories: 150, Total Fat: 6g, Carbs: 21g, Protein: 2g
Take note of the serving size here. 9 grams. That’s about 1/3 of an ounce or about 16 crackers.
And the reduced fat version:
Calories: 130, Total Fat: 3.5g, Carbs: 22g, Protein: 2g
Again, 16 crackers.
So Maria over at Maria’s Nutritional Consulting (www.mariahealth.blogspot.com – love this site!) had this solution for us cracker lovers. There are so many good things to say about this recipe! It was simple to make, took only a few minutes to prepare, cost about the same as a box of Wheat Thins, tasted awesome, can be modified for different flavors, low fat, low calorie, LOW CARB-HIGH FIBER!
You will need 1 package Joseph’s Lavash Wraps:
Lay out all 4 wraps on a cutting board:
Cut with a pizza cutter. I cut it 8×8 – so 64 crackers per lavash:
The hardest part of this recipe was separating the crackers and laying them out onto cookie sheets (make sure to spray the pans with some cooking spray – canola or olive oil). I got them all laid out before the oven was pre-heated.
Once they’re laid out on the cookie sheets spray with the cooking spray and season them. I used just a little sea salt. Next time, to give them that Wheat Thin sweetness, I’ll sprinkle on a little bit of Stevia.
Bake em’. Maria says to do it at 325 for 12 minutes. I did mine at 400 degrees for 7 minutes because for some reason I though that was the temp I read. It worked, but watch them closely so they don’t burn!
Once cooled, separate into snack size baggies. I did 6 servings which gave me about 40 crackers per serving!
