My daughter loves croutons in her soup, so much that she’s developed an addiction lately. I, on the other hand, love them as snacks with any sort of cheese dip or a tzatziki sauce. My garlic herb croutons seem to be the perfect match for these dips, in my opinion and I also love a little mid afternoon crunchy! These herby croutons are crisp enough for my taste and so flavorful that I only need a few to nibble on for feeling full.

These garlic herb croutons are super easy to make and taste so much better than the commercial alternative. Plus they’re fresh! And versatile, you can basically add any flavor you like or just make them plain. I personally love anything garlic and cheese so I made these with garlic powder and Parmesan and made things even more yum by adding onion powder, thyme, basil and dill. Basically the mother of all croutons!!!

Since I only added a small amount of oil and then baked them, these garlic herb croutons are pretty healthy too!
