Rice Crackers (using baby cereals!)

Lizzy, my younger daughter, hates to be spoon-fed. She has right from the beginning. And so, while I had bought boxes and boxes of rice cereal and multigrain cereal and oatmeal for her, she wants nothing to do with it.

I wanted to find a way to start using up all this baby cereal, and I came across this recipe for Rice Crackers at Toddler Cafe. The recipe calls for a Cream of Rice-type cereal; would baby rice cereals work, too?

They did! Fabulously! The crackers are a little too chewy for my baby, but Abby had a bowlful as a snack. We went with a Parmesan cheese topping, and I used a pizza cutter to just cut the dough into squares. The crackers had a slightly sweet taste, and reminded me of Wheat Thins.

So, if you have boxes of baby cereal to use up, or just want to try out a new cracker recipe, go check out The Toddler Cafe's recipe for Rice Crackers!
