We have 3 kids and our youngest is below four. He is really really smart and very active. He never runs out of energy! He is always in every corner of the house including my kitchen.
We have a drawer in the kitchen where I keep some of my kids’ snacks including Skyflakes (arguably the most popular cracker in the Philippines and at our home) which they love. Time and again, I find crumbled Skyflakes (still in its packaging). It must be so satisfying for him to listen to the sound of breaking crackers that I always have at least a couple every time we have them at home.
This recipe is the result of the numerous Skyflakes crumbs that I refused to throw away. I just add ‘em in with the rest of the ingredients I normally use to make fritters.
My kids really love the extra crunchiness that the Skyflakes crumbs give. Try it at your home.
