Me, too. I really like them plain (by the recipe) better than any other way! The taste and smell are good to me too!

I like plain best also, but sprinkled with cinnamon sugar (erythritol crystals) runs a pretty close second.

Thankyou Patdart and AnnC. I will check Shanny's spreads and copy them.
Its been a major problem not being able to eat anything on breads or crackers, or even rice for that matter. I meant our stores stock large varieties, but nothing for diabetes, unless I missed it.

i've found in the humid summers we have here in Louisiana I have to add more baking time to make them dry enough. Be aware that they need as much time as it takes to be fully dried out in order to be crispy. Good luck!

Same problem with humidity here in summer. I've started using less water (1.75 cups instead of 2) and find that I get slightly thinner but crisper crackers. They occasionally crack while I'm spreading butter on them, but the butter and peanut butter/almond butter/avocado hold them together long enough for me to eat them. I store mine in a plastic container with a click-on lid and never have any difficulty with them going soft or mouldy.

My first problem. Not dry enough. left them in switched off oven hoping it would dry out but this morning still soft. Yeah it did seem like a lot of water for me too but the first bake is always trial & error.
Just when I thought I have finished cooking & baking for life and will either eat out or do 'heat & eat' from our great Woolworth stores, I have to do this now for my special needs. Not funny.

just heat that oven back up and keep baking them...they WILL dry out. I've had to rebake some and it does work. I keep mine very thin for this reason and sometimes I bake them for 45 min. on each side or even longer. In my humid climate, it depends so much on what the humidity is. Keep the faith.

Its nice to see how many of you that loves the crackers, and also all the variation you makes.
Mine always get crispy, but sometimes they need a bit more time than usual, but thats okay. I forgive them the minute I can eat them

Thank you Pat. I will do just that. thought I had it wrong. Back in the oven it goes.
Its cold here suddenly, but the Sun is out. We have snow in Johannesburg and everyone up there is over the Moon about it. They sending me lots of pics. Not used to it. Our climates have changed. Interesting.
