Make Crispy Croutons with this Optavia Biscuit Hack

There's nothing quite like the crisp, yummy texture and flavor of croutons. A Ceasar salad just wouldn't be the same without them... and wouldn't soup be lonely? 

If you love the crunch of a good crouton, but following a low carb program, you're going to really flip out over this simple, delicious recipe.

Simply by taking one Optavia Biscuit Mix (here I use the cheddar herb) we can make a batch of croutons you'll savor. Enjoy them wherever you would love a little extra crispy nom-nom.

By the way... if you want, you don't have to break them up after cooking- you can keep them as one large cracker and enjoy with your favorite topping!

Simple, easy and deliciously crunchy. You've got this!
