I want to share a secret with you.

Have you ever purchased Raincoast Crisps from the store? The crackers that are thin and have a light crunch. They contain a nutty crunch and sweet taste due to the dried fruit – full of wholesome ingredients – so much so that you wonder if you can make them at home!

It turns out – you can! Once I got in on the secret, I just couldn’t keep my mouth shut: DIY Raincoast Crisps are super simple to make homemade! Plus this recipe allows you to make over 10 times the amount of crackers at a fraction of the cost!

These crackers are prepared similar to baking a banana loaf. You simply freeze the loaf, chop into thin slices, and bake to crisp perfection in the oven. Lastly, pairing these crackers with your favourite cheese, makes these crackers a fool proof appetizer.

Recipe Tips & Tricks

  • Keep a close eye on them when they are cooking, as depending on the variance in the cutting size, some may need to be removed sooner before they burn.
  • I like to swap my raisins out for currants or chopped figs
  • I LOVE to serve my raincoast-style crisps with brie, and figs or jam!
