Shanny - I didn't know exactly what it looks like either without buying a large container of it. So I 'googled' it and this is what I came up with. At least you can get an idea of how different forms of it look.

psyllium husk - Google Search

Perhaps they will - it's only the usual suspects around here don't. And maybe Optimist could tell us if it matters if it's the powder or flakes ... my sense is it wouldn't except the powder would be more immediately absorbent (maybe not a good thing when you're trying to spread it? dunno -)

Whoa - thanks for the heads-up Pat! Glad I exercised restraint - my experience with metformin keeps me on the edge as it is. This is great though, now I won't be tempted to overeat them - a few small ones/day with some brie or dip or almond butter - yum!

For breakfast I had a couple with Kerry Gold butter. It's great because I often struggle not wanting to eat breakfast, am getting a little tired of 'a handful of nuts', and it's a great accompaniment to my morning java.

In Norway we call it FiberHusk.
This is how mine are.
fiberhusk - Google-søk

We can also buy a powder which is really fine flour, but that is meant to fix problems with toilet.visits. I`ve never bought that type, so I really din`t know how it works in baking.

When I make the dough, it becomes really hard during 5 minutes. If it is to hard, I just add a tiny amount water.

Shanny, you're gonna love 'em. They leave GG in the dust. Funny, I saw on the packaging that GG crackers come from Norway, something I wouldn't've focused on if it weren't for Optimist, our very own Cracker Savior.

Optimist, if your crackers were on youtube they would've gone viral. Two people have gotten the recipe from me, one has given to two others who wanted it, and I've made them 3 times already.

I have no idea how you learned a batch would keep for a month or more when tightly contained, unless it's that you were being held hostage and couldn't get to them.

Used flaxseed meal just because it's what I had, but am getting the seeds and will grind almonds as Optimist does vs using the flour as I have been to go for a seedier (sic) result. I do use more salt than Optimist cuz I have no bp issues and love the stuff.

I took a batch on my recent mini-holiday and we blew through them with some soft cheeses and red wine.

It`s whole flaxseed I`m using.
I found this reciepe in a book written by one norwegian doctor, dr.Hexeberg, who really works hard to tell people how life can get better on LCHF, and I just changed it a bit so it would be really crispy (I like them best when they`re crispy).
The first times I made those crackers, they disappeared in a blink, but now we all are used to them, so we doesn`t eat them at once.
I always have different type of food at home, so we eat some of this and some of that, and then my crackers last longer....
