Forgot to say that I saw my endo who is gluten free and took her a bag of them. She loved them and wants the recipe!

I have a loaf of this almond bread in the oven, a recipe that foxl posted. This is the first time I have made this recipe, but if I can keep the old man out of it, tomorrow I want to slice and toast it and try to make stuffing.

I'm curious to know if foxl ever tried making stuffing with it, she said she might and mentioned she would add thyme, rosemary and sage. Unfortunately, I don't use thyme or rosemary. Think I'll add sage flavored sausage, onions and celery cooked in butter, chicken broth and sage. Hope I don't goof it up. If you have any suggestions, I'm open.

Okay Optimist - you're officially my heroine. This is my new go-to cracker, and definitely better than any that have gone before. All those others? Pretenders. Cracker wannabes. These are the real deal.

I used almond meal because I have so dang much of it, but next time will use your methods with almonds so to get some of the nutty texture in, not just the flour.

You are the Cracker Goddess.

Thank you!

Pat, I'm afraid I might buy the wrong thing. Would you mind posting the brand name and what it is called on the label?

I`m sitting here laughing when I read your words!
Thanks a lot!
It`s one of the favourite recipes I always have in the house, and I`m just happy you can enjoy them too!
Tasty, Crispy and low on carbs; can it be better?

Today I made musli.
I like to have that too in the house at all time because I sometimes eat it with Princessyoughurt, use it in cakes or as today, in an applepie.

I got mine at Whole Foods - 365 Everyday Value - Psyllium Husk - Whole Flakes. They had every type of psyllium imaginable, but hey, it's Whole Foods!

What do you make your muesli with? Without oats and fruit I'm lost. But then you talked about apple pie, so you do eat fruit.

Thanks, moon. I'm stuck with what Walgreen's carries which is pills or powder. Does anyone think the powder will work?
