I am really happy that you love the crackers as much as I do!
There are sp many really tasty thing we can eat allthough we have diabetes.
My youngest son (age 21) smiled from ear to ear when I called him down to tell that I had made a swissroll since I was just craving something "sweet" while watching "Volcano" with Tommy Lee Jones last night. According to my son we now eat food and snacks that really tastes good, and not just a bunch of additives.

I took a double recipe to my art camp last week with my Barefoot Bousin and brought none home!

Thanks also Shanny for doing the carb count. I guess I cut mine smaller or roll them out flatter, because I fill two pans and get full Silpats from a recipe. I love them thin and crisp, so I guess I get about 48 per recipe. Making more today, and I will count to see.

I just put mine in the oven and counted and got 52 in all, 24 on one pan and 28 on the other since I didn't cut the same on each pan. Mine fill the normal sized Silpat which I use instead of paper in my jelly roll pans.

Cracker Queen, thanks so much for this recipe!

And thank you, Pat, for pursuing the recipe with Optimist. I had given up that a real cracker was possible.

The others were okay - the cheese crisps, GGs, zucchini ones, another I forget - barely adequate substitutes. But if I was miraculously cured of diabetes, I'd still make the Optimist Cracker.

Forty-eight is what I got from the entire recipe - cutting each pan into 24 - and that's what I ran the nutritional values with. They're about the size of a regular saltine.

I absolutely can't leave them alone - these crackers loaded with my smoked salmon spread are just incredible! I'm sure my other dips & spreads will be the same - and I'm having to remind myself of Pat's admonition regarding the natural side effects of psyllium & flax . . .

Shanny - You could always use the old excuse my sons used to give me when questioned "why did you do this?" They would tell me "the Devil made me do it"

btw........I have my first batch in the oven as we speak......

Make a batch of the Barefoot Boursin and have both oh hand. I only mentioned the side effect for those who have problems that way. On the other hand, they work great for me! A few of my last batch got a bit too tan for me, but even they taste really good!

I first made these when I had guests, and they ripped through I think over half the batch. The next day I asked ... er, how was your, well, did you, uh, have any um urgent gastric issues this morning....

So far no reported problems.
