These traditional healthy crackers are the healthy snacks I grew up eating. Called rubrødschips in Danish, they’re a favorite healthy homemade naturally vegan snack in Scandinavia.

What we’re working with today 

Ingredients to make rye bread crackers and healthy dark bread chips 

Rye bread – or any other dark bread like soda bread or similar (grab my easy rye bread recipe here). Any dark bread will work in this recipe. You can use bread with or without lots of seeds. Personally, I like a rye bread full of seeds as they roast in the oven and gives the chips a nutty flavor that’s irresistibly tasty.

Olive oil – the olive oil makes sure the bread becomes golden and crispy on top as the crackers bake. Spray the oil on or brush to coat evenly on the top side of the bread slices (there’s no need to coat both sides in oil). Any type of vegetable oil will do. If you prefer you can also use avocado oil, coconut oil or whichever vegetable oil you prefer.

Seasoning – I like to season with sea salt flakes and oregano. But any type of salt and seasoning will work so use your favorite and don’t be afraid to experiment. I also like to mix up my seasoning and occasionally I’ll season with smoked paprika or Herb de Provence. There’s no going wrong. It all tastes delicious.

How to make rye bread chips 

  • Line two baking sheets with baking paper.
  • Cut the bread into thin slices (almost as thin as you can get them while they still hold their shape).
  • Place the rye bread slices on the lined baking sheets and spray it brush them with olive oil. Season with salt and oregano.
  • Bake the rye bread chips for 10-15 minutes at 400F (190 degrees Celsius) or until the chips are golden and crispy (without being burned).
  • Remove the chips from the oven and gently transfer to a rack to cool. As the chips cool they will become completely crispy.
