- "So, I decided to mix things up a bit, hopin' I could capture that signature kabatha flavor in a slightly more palatable form. After a few tries, I ended up with these fried Kabatha Crisps. Their sweet, airy layers make 'em a perfect treat for crunchin' on at any holiday gatherin'. Turns out, kabatha ain't just for breakfast anymore!"
- ―Strono Tuggs, The Life Day Cookbook
Kabatha Crisps were a light brown, disc-shaped dessert created by the Artiodac chef Strono Tuggs, who wanted to create a palatable version of the guts of the creature known as the kabatha, a traditional breakfast food on the Wookiee homeworld of Kashyyyk. He came up with the recipe after a few tries, deciding on a dish that was sweet, airy, and crunchy and was topped with a white dust. At some point after publishing his first cookbook in 34 ABY, Tuggs included a recipe for Kabatha Crisps in his second cookbook, The Life Day Cookbook, where he recommended the dessert for any holiday festivities.
Behind the scenes
Kabatha Crisps were introduced in Star Wars: The Life Day Cookbook, a 2021 recipe book authored by Marc Sumerak and Jenn Fujikawa. Their out-of-universe recipe calls for sugar and cinnamon while the dough requires flour, sugar, baking powder, salt, eggs, butter, and Keshian Spiced Milk, which has an in-universe recipe of its own in the book as well.

Notes and references
- Star Wars: The Life Day Cookbook
- Star Wars: Galaxy's Edge: The Official Black Spire Outpost Cookbook establishes that the in-universe book was published at the same time as when the First Order was searching for the Resistance base on Batuu. As that search occurs in Galaxy's Edge: Black Spire, which is set in 34 ABY according to the reasoning here, the cookbook must have been published in 34 ABY.
