I recently was able to try a new snack food by Sahale Snacks called Sahale Crunchers, and I am in love. They actually were created out of need as many great products are: to use the same energy boosting foods found in stale seeds and nuts, but create something very tasty. Not only are these things addictive straight out of the bag, there are so many great recipes I can add them to! Because we have no snacking will power in this home, the Parmesan Cheese and Herb Sahale Crunchers just didn't make it to a recipe. No sir! They were gobbled down by four little hungry tummies who were of course helped by good ole dad!
The other two flavors: Cranberries, Sesame Seeds & Honey and Cherries, Apples & Maple were made into a wonderful breakfast which we of course enjoyed for supper.

Take foil off and bake for another20 minutes until puffy and golden. NOTE: Do not remove foil cover too soon or almonds may burn.

I made a second French Toast with the Sesame Seeds, Honey, & Cherries Sahale Crunchers and it was equally as good. This is such a great treat that it reminds me of a bread pudding minus the cream on it. I enjoyed mine without syrup because I thought it was plenty sweet enough, but it was such a great hit, they were asking for leftovers for breakfast the following day!
