Product Review: Nairn’s Light and Crispy Oat Crackers with Sunflower Seeds (Recipe Included)


Another sample I got from Nairn’s was their Light and Crispy Oat Crackers with Sunflower Seeds.

The flavour of this cracker is very similar to their Scottish Oat Crackers with the addition of sunflower seeds.  The crackers are also packaged in pouches, so you can carry the crackers on the go! AWESOME!

Any crackers would not taste great without the appropriate topping. Therefore, I made an avocado dip that would be great for these Oat Crackers.  Here is the recipe:

1 avocado, skinned

2 tablespoons yogurt

1 garlic

0.5 teaspoon lime juice

0.5 teaspoon lemon juice

0.5 teaspoon cumin

salt and pepper to taste


1) Put all the ingredient in a blender and blend until smooth.

2) Sprinkle more cumin onto dipping sauce.  Serve when ready.



There are more variation of avocado dips you could make.

If you want your avocado dip to taste less garlicy and sour, you may substitute yogurt with mayonnaise or mustard. I personally prefer grainy mustard because it provides the dip with some texture.

In addition, if you decide to add fruit or vegetable in your avocado dip such as tomato, mash the avocado instead of blending to retain the texture of the fruit or vegetable.

So try this at home and tell us what you think!
