From Easton's 1897 Bible Dictionary :

  Mouldy
     Of the Gibeonites it is said that "all the bread of their
     provision was dry and mouldy" (Josh. 9:5, 12). The Hebrew word
     here rendered "mouldy" (nikuddim) is rendered "cracknels" in 1
     Kings 14:3, and denotes a kind of crisp cake. The meaning is
     that the bread of the Gibeonites had become dry and hard, hard
     as biscuits, and thus was an evidence of the length of the
     journey they had travelled.
