The Nordic crisps, or knækbrød, as we call it in Denmark, from Hungry Bird Eats are healthy crackers packed with seeds and baked with olive oil. They are free from additives, super tasty and highly addictive. Perfect as a snack on the go, but even better together with cheese or different kinds of spreads such as my super easy feta cheese dip that everybody loves.
Hungry Bird Eats was founded in Brooklyn in 2016 by my high school friend, food entrepreneur and architect Tina Diep from Denmark. Tina began her quest for creating a better snack after learning that her 1-year old son Ike was allergic to nuts and soy. Tina found that most snack foods on the market are heavily processed and contained these allergens, she decided to come up with her own. Hungry Bird Nordic crisps are inspired by the traditional Danish knækbrød (rye crispbread. She began sharing her creations with neighbors and friends, until she finally launched her first Hungry Bird Nordic Crisp product, Rye + Sea Salt, an addictive slow-card baked snack made of organic rye flour lightly touched with olive oil and packed with superfood ingredients such as organic chia seeds, flax seeds, and pumpkin seeds. The sea salt crisps were followed by the addition of a second hand-made Nordic Crisp product, Multi-Seeds + Oregano, made entirely with gluten-free ingredients.
