What is Finn Crisp?

The Finn Crisp story goes back to 1952 during the Helsinki Summer Olympic Games. It was the first introduction of their thin, delicate rye crisps to the public (even though their crisp bread baking tradition goes back many years prior to that). Today, they are most known for their classic wholegrain rye recipe that is baked with sourdough and has a rich rye taste for crunchy, delicious cracker.

What makes Finn Crisp Sourdough Rye Thins so special?

  • Made with Sourdough
  • 100% Whole Grains
  • Naturally High in Fiber

Where can I find Finn Crisp?

They have many online and retail locations available, so I recommend clicking here to find what works best for you! :)

Alternative "protein" options for nachos:

  • Chicken
  • Beef
  • Tofu (saute with olive oil until golden brown)
  • Black Beans
  • Quinoa
  • Lentils
  • Cauliflower
  • Chickpeas
  • Mushrooms

Sneaky ways to make nachos healthier:

  • Replace half the tortilla chips with sweet potatoes (thinly sliced and roasted until golden brown)
  • Add a Greek Yogurt-Cilantro-Lime creamy sauce on top
  • Add roasted vegetables on top (such as finely chopped roasted zucchini, eggplant, okra, etc)

Now, it’s time to grab our aprons and begin baking deliciousness! ’till next time! xxL
