My dough is dryer than on your pictures VeeJay.
Which kind of Psyllium hulls are you using?
Powder vs flakes was exactly the issue!!

I found Psyllium hull powder at the Good Food store this time I shopped. I made half a recipe of the crackers yesterday and it took the whole cup of water and was thick in less than 10 minutes. By the time I got it spread on the baking sheet it was almost too thick to work with. I'm thinking next batch I'm going to go 1/2 and 1/2 flakes and powder and see how that works. I also add about a Tbs of chia seeds to my recipe so that may add extra thickening properties. I started adding them when the batter was too wet. Don't need them now, but I like them so will add anyway.

Me too. I saw the jar in the pantry yesterday and thought I should put some in the next batch, then saw Barbara's post! I'm going to make a batch this morning when the kitchen warms up a little.

A new batch in the oven as we speak. They are wonderful and I try to keep them on hand all the time. Cream cheese is fantastic on them.

My latest is adding Italian seasoning mix and dried minced onion. Then when I eat them I cover them with olive oil and sprinkle with garlic powder. I could see a sprinkling of parmasan cheese, too (if I could eat dairy).

My supply is down. Must make them tomorrow - real early, 'cause it's going to reach 100F tomorow.

100 gram almonds
200 gram sesame
50 gram flaxseed
1/2 ts salt
2 topped ss Psyllium hulls
1/2 liter cold water

I put the almonds in my Food Processor and chop them really fine. Then I mix everything in a bowl just using a spoon. Leave it for 5 minutes to make the Psyllium hulls to swell.
I set the oven on 160 degrees celcius hot air.
I put baking paper in 2 baking trays, and lay half of the dough in each baking tray.
I use a spatula to make the dough cover all of the tray. I use a pizzacutter to make 10 pieces in each tray.
I put both of the trays in the oven at the same time using hot air. After about 45 minutes I take them out, seperate the crackers and turns them. Then I put them back in the oven again, but now I have the ovendoor slightly open.
After about 45 minutes the crackers are dry all through and really crispy.
I let them cool on a grate. When they are cooled, I put them in a closed box, and they will stay crispy and tasty for more than a month (mine always been eaten at that time).
Enjoy!
Hi Optimist, only saw this recipe today, so off to our health shops to see if I can get the psylluim. Patdart is very creative with the options, so I will try it later this week. I so look forward to having a cracker myself. Im always searching in our supermarkets for a diabetic-friendly cracker. large variety but none this good I guess.
thank you.

While you are out, look up Shanny's recipes for spreads and pick up those things you'll need for them!

I eat these crackers, made with the original recipe plus a tablespoon of chia seeds, for lunch most days (I eat 2). I make 12 per tray, and eat them with a tablespoon of butter and then add half an avocado (1/4 on each), or a tablespoon of peanut butter or almond butter. I love the smell and taste of them.
