(copycat trader joe's) raisin rosemary crisps | my skinny sweet tooth

I have an obsession.

I am addicted to raisin rosemary crisps from Trader Joe’s. At first bite, I was floored by how well the earthy rosemary married with the sweet raisins. Match made in food lovers heaven. I’ve taken those flavors and made them into pancake form here and those didn’t disappoint.

While at Trader Joe’s today, I passed by the crisps. I could feel them starting at me.

“Come buy us … we’re so tasty …”

Well, you know what? They are super tasty, but gosh darn it, I’m going to make them myself. I quickly hopped online to find a recipe that could jump start my search. Easy enough, there were several.

I found one that had very few ingredients and ones that I could swap to make them more my style (weight watchers style 😉 ) I was honestly unsure how these would turn out. I subbed greek yogurt for the buttermilk (one for one) and couldn’t be happier with the results. These were incredible. Blind taste test? You’d never guess which one was the Trader Joe’s crisps or the homemade version. That’s something very special in my book. Now my mother doesn’t have to travel 2hrs to stock up on these crisps … she can just make them at home 🙂

So, once you make the muffins, just slice and bake a little longer until you have the most perfect crisp & chewy crackers. Serve them with brie and a sliced apple … oh, man. The perfect snack!

These are the beautiful beginning to something so familiar in my household now-a-days: raisin rosemary crisps.

Raisins and rosemary are such a unique flavor combination that is unlike anything I’ve had. It’s down right amazing. I initially started this recipe in hopes to make a huge batch of homemade raisin rosemary crisps. However, I was so pleased with how the first step turned out (these muffins) that I only sacrificed a few muffins to be turned to crisps. And the muffins? Well, they’ll make the perfect breakfast for in the morning 🙂 Knowing these flavors may be a little odd for my husband, he happily tried a mini muffin and LOVED it. He requested to take the rest to work with him this week. That, my friends, is a complete WIN in my book. 😉 Now I know he’ll love my pancakes!

You’ll also see that I’ve made 2 sizes: mini & large muffins. Each produce a different size cracker if you decide to further their destiny to the next step, but they are equally delicious 🙂 I’ll provide the points for each kind, which ever you prefer to make 😉 I will add that I prefer the large muffins for the crisps (they are easier to cut) but it’s all about personal preference!

rosemary raisin pancakes

I’m absolutely obsessed with this flavor combination: rosemary & raisin. It all started with these. I always have a box in my pantry. If you’re near a Trader Joe’s and you haven’t tried these yet, put them on your grocery list. NOW. You can thank me later. 🙂

But on to breakfast …
I’ve been wanting to put those two flavors together for a while now. As I was looking in my pantry this morning trying to figure out what kind of pancakes to have, I spotted the raisins. Then, I remembered there was fresh rosemary in the fridge from when I wanted to make something (not sure what yet 😉 ). So, 10 minutes later, rosemary raisin pancakes were born and it was a moment I’ll cherish forever. Ha! They are really that good. Topped with some maple cream and they were a memorable breakfast. Can’t wait to make these for my mom. (She loves those crisps, too) Continue reading “rosemary raisin pancakes”
