Biscuits and crackers are a quick and easy snack for hungry tummies when accompanied with a protein. The downside though is that they are often laden with sugar, contain salt and additives. Although you know what goes into home-baking, lots of baking recipes are high in saturated fat and sugars. I guess that’s why they taste so good. Why not try these honey yogurt biscuits as an alternative – it cuts out some of these things.
