Homemade Raincoast Crisps

Raincoast crisps are something terribly addicting, but sadly, they're pretty expensive. I've been pretty intimidated by them, and therefore never attempted to try and make them before. Then this recipe was shared with me and I realized just how easy these things are to make! Very simple, but very delicious!


2 cups flour (I used whole wheat)
2 teaspoons baking soda
1/2 teaspoon salt
2 cups buttermilk
1/4 cup brown sugar
1/4 cup liquid honey
1 cup raisins (or dried cranberries)
1/2 cup chopped pecans
1/2 cup roasted pumpkin seeds
1/4 cup sesame seeds
1/4 cup flaxseed, ground
1 Tablespoon chopped fresh rosemary

Preheat oven to 350F. Stir together flour, baking soda, and salt in a large bowl. Add buttermilk, brown sugar, and honey and stir a few strokes. Add all other ingredients and stir until just mixed. 

Pour batter into mini-loaf pans that have been oiled. Bake for 35 minutes until golden browned.  Let cool on a cooling rack.

Ensure bread is entirely cooled before slicing. They may be placed in the freezer to cool more quickly. When cooled, slice loaves thinly and place single layer on a non-greased baking sheet. Reduce oven to 300F and bake for 15 minutes. Flip the slices, then bake for another 10-15 minutes until golden and crispy.

Top with cheese (brie!) or your favourite dip.
