    Made these to the recipe but used 3 tbsp of melted coconut oil as I wasn't sure if US tablespoons are the equivalent of our dessertspoons in the UK. They came out super crunchy and absolutely delicious - I could have eaten the entire batch. The only thing I would change when I make them again is to add half as much salt as they were too salty (maybe because I used coarse sea salt). Thank you so much!

    Aren’t seeds suppose to be soaked overnight? Are you using raw organic seeds or roasted ones? I’m confused as I thought seeds/nuts have to be soaked HELP!

    Make these all the time, I use a pizza pan with holes in it and parchment paper / today’s batch I added some garlic powder and oregano - baking now smells wonderful. Forgot the almond meal, but oh well have forgot before. Experiment-can’t go wrong unless you throw away if not perfect-use on salads.

    Wow! These crackers are absolutely fantastic and delicious!! A crunchy cracker was THE one thing missing on keto.

    Also, I followed the written recipe not the one in the video. I used non virgin coconut oil that has no coconut flavor. I spread them out on a large jelly roll pan and the thinness was perfect.I found the instructions about "drying" confusing. But, this is what I did. After 45 minutes I turned off the oven and left door closed for 15 minutes. Then I opened the door and let cool in the oven. Perfectly crisp! No low carb cracker I have ever tried came close to the flavor and crispness of this cracker!!! Yum!

    It is too bad these could not be mass produced but I bet they would not hold up to packing and shipping.

    Because I bought 15 lbs of seeds and have pounds of almond flour and psyllium seed husk powder, I prepackaged all the dry ingredients in sandwich baggies and placed in a larger ziplock. Now I just pull out a baggie and add water and oil to the mixture. I placed the baggies and all other seeds in my freezer so they don't get rancid.

    Any chance we can have the serving size for the macros you state?? It’s shows 1g net carb, but is that for a whole tray (probably not) or one cracker? How big (weight) should this cracker be for 1g net carb??? I’m a little in the dark at the moment.

    Also, did anyone else find 1cup of water way too much? I only put in 1/4 cup and they turned out ok (very crumbly but tasty) is 1cup a mis print??

    One more tip. These crackers need to be in an airtight container. I first put them in a tupperware type container that did not keep them crisp after just one day. But when I put them in a canning jar with airtight lid they stayed crisp.
  13. Angie Throop
    How much is a serving? Is it by size or ounces?
  14. Andrea Lissuzzo
    Any suggestions for the parchment paper not adhering to the cracker? or to the keto pizza?

    Oh my goodness, these are the BEST crackers i have ever made. I don't add the almond flour and spread the dough out super thin to make two trays. I replaced the Chia/Flax seeds with Linseeds as that's what I had. AMAAAAAAAAAZING. Thanks so much for this awesome recipe.

    TIP: buy your seeds in bulk, then portion out the dry ingredients into bags, and write what wet ingredients to add on the outside of the bag. Then chuck the bags in the freezer. This stops the seeds going rancid and you have a perfectly portioned amount ready to bake!

    TIP: Try adding different seasonings. Some favourites of mine: Rosemary and Salt, Garlic salt, Mixed dried herbs, Onion flakes, Chili Flakes, Pepper, Parmesan seasoning. Yummmmmmmm

    TIP: When you start adding the cup of water you think that it's too much. But the dough eventually forms (it's like a thick gel), this is perfect for spreading between two sheets of baking paper.

    I've made there today, I have a very small type electric oven so the pan was a little smaller than recommended but they have turned out fine if a little thicker. So good to have a 'cracker' type of thing to have with cheese.

    I've been recommending the recipes on Diet Doctor on all the Keto pages and blogs I follow.....hope that's ok.

    I tried to figure out the serving size but can’t. Can anyone figure it out?

    Is there a sub for Psyllium husk powder?
    I don’t have it and $17 on amazon seems steep!
    If i did buy it, what else would i use it for?
  22. Mira
    You might be able to substitute flaxseed meal or chia seed meal, but you should research whether it's a 1:1 substitution (I haven't tried this yet). As for price, you can buy a small NOW Foods Psyllium Husk Powder, 12 oz. container, via Vitacost, Amazon, Walmart, etc. Price ranges from $7.39 non-org. or 11.39 organic and higher. Search for the product on the web to check prices because Amazon is not always cheapest. I bought a small size because I wasn't sure how much I'd use over six months.

    FYI: Psyllium adds a flavor similar to whole-wheat and a texture similar to whole grain flour in items prepared with it. Some Psyllium Powders can cause baked goods (bread, rolls) to turn a blue/purple hue the next day, but I haven't had it happen with NOW and Anthony's. Color change doesn't affect taste or quality. Good luck!

    I don't know serving size either... I guess we will all have to add all the ingredients' totals of macros and total weight, and then do some lovely arithmetic...

    They are mighty tasty though! I added caraway seed and garlic powder to mine. Didn't have psyllium husk powder, so I added ground flax meal. The key was getting it the right thickness, which wasn't the easiest task. I also added hemp hearts instead of sunflower seeds. Cut some avocado as a topping instead of butter. Soooooo good!

    Mine fell apart into granola as soon as I touched them...is this because I didn't use parchment paper? I just sprayed the cookie sheet. Also a little bitter

    Very soggy, never crisper up??
  26. Linda

    Try 350o for coocking and cut in half the coconut oil.

    The ingredients in the blog don’t match the video?

    These crackers are delicious! I make a double batch and spread it over three cookie sheets to keep them thin and get the crispness that I crave. I've added parmesan cheese to the mix and that turns out really good.

    If you find that your crackers bend instead of break, you can pop them in the oven again for5minutes at a time until the reach your desired crispness
