Ok, so I made these according to Optimist's original recipe but doubled the recipe so I could make thicker crackers (more like Was a bread) and they turned out great. They hold up well to piling stuff onto them and, while overabundance of sesame seeds is, at times, overpowering, they are still great. I have to figure out another good combo of ingredients (dried blueberries and walnut?)... It's so nice to have a decent "bread" again.

the only problem I found with a thicker cracker was they didnt seem to keep as well..I layer them in a air proof container with a sheet of absorbent paper between each layer...

Ive used walnuts brazil nuts and pecans and sunflower seeds...they all work...um you can always blitz the sesame seeds into a flour...

Let us know how they work

My problem hasn't been trying to KEEP them! I decided this week to finish up the last few packages of GG crispbread, mainly because I have to eat those things slowly! Each new batch of O'crackers is gone in one big SNARF!

I was wondering the same thing foxl. I have chia seeds, but am having difficulty finding psyllium hulls/husks or whatever. I haven't gone to health food store yet, but gonna try them on Saturday.

Be sure you make some plain as they are soooooo good that way too! I first did them with other flavors, but return to the basic recipe.

Glad you finally joined the Optimist club...

I simply love them plain with boiled egg, tomato, ham and mayonnaise,
but I also like to eat them with butter, cheese and red pepper or a cream cheese with garlic and green chili pepper
