Hosana and chimichanga, this thread contains some FABULOUS posts!  What great info on making one's own compliant crackers!  I just want to add a thing or two about the Glutino flax crackers, update-wise:

1.  I have now tried another variety, the banana.  I like them better than the tomato-onion.  Normally, I'm a savory-preferring gal, but I dunno, the tomato-onion just didn't do it for me.  The banana is very good.  I spread the following on a banana flax cracker and it was fantabulous:  100% almond butter and some fresh, raw cranberry relish.  omg, really good.  It was a festivus for the restofus, a truly delightful little dessert last eve.

2.  The flax crackers are very FILLING.  I think they will be great for weight loss, as they are low-cal, low-carb (high FIBER, which is technically a carb, but you know what I mean, low-BAD-carb) and very substantial.

3.  The banana ones with a fruity/nutty spread like I had would be a great cereal substitute for O's for breakfast, if you miss cereal.

4.

by Laura:  simple basic recipe is just to grind up nuts or flax add in water and egg to a porridge like consistancy spread out on some parchment and put in oven or dehydrator, if in oven watch and turn over have way.........I have some more more specific recipes, but you can go wild from here adding what ever spices you want

just a note of preference macadamia nut crackers IMO are absolutly divine plain or with any spice added.  these are great topped with a bit of avocado and some meat-- yum yum yum.  You can also add some cinnamon to them which makes them so so sweet

Holy healthful eating, Batman, that sounds absolutely HEAVENLY!  I only recently discovered macadamia nuts in 2004 when, for some reason, I decided that I should put some into my hurricane kit!  omg, they are divine, truly.  If my house were blown to smithereens, and I was left there, sitting on the foundation, eating macadamia nuts while looking up at the clear blue sky, I am sure that the macadamias would certainly go a significant way towards easing my pain!

by Italybound:  Peppermint Twist, thanks so much for sharing that w/ us. I'll look for them at WF. Is that where you got yours?

No *sigh*, I don't get down to WF nearly as much as I thought I would when they first opened up.  Between being in a snit over the fossil fuel SITUATION and on a one-woman boycott of same, not having a working freezer for six months (it is okay for the moment now, now that it is winter...long story), and becoming ever more the homebody, I just haven't gotten down there, but just lately I'm thinking it is definitely TIME!  I got them at the local little HFS here in my city and I think they are a brand new item there, as I'm in there and *hangs head in shame* I'm in that chip/snack aisle a LOT *head still hanging*, so I would have noticed these if they were there, although, admittedly, I never look at the crackers *head lifts back up a hair*.  As was pointed out, these crackers are made in Montreal, so for the Canadians who have asked, YES, I would think they would be even more readily available there than they are here in the states.  The box is in French and everything!  Whew, doggies!  Learned some words in French, as the other side of the box is in English!  I now know, for example, that water is "eau" and banana is "banane".  Exciting!

O.K., I just piccked up the apple and raisin variety at Five Seasons HFS. Taste pretty good though I wonder if the whole flax seeds are digestible. They also have cinnamon and honey not completely Bnonnie friendly. By the way when I went to see my folks I forgot my vegetable glycerine for making my fresh pumpkin pies(loaded with cream, B heaven). I finally found some at Vitamins Plus a quasi health food store. Of course it was priced as high as a cat's back and I had to tell them what it is used for. Imagine having a product and not being able to tell what it is used for!

I'm jealous!  (Of the cream part, that is, NOT the vegetable glycerin part, as that stuff is weeeeiiird, imho.)  But I must admit to indulging in the occasional dairy avoid, as luckily they don't cause me too many probs...still, to be a B would definitely have its perks!

Digestible, schmigestible!  Who cares, because when ya stop to think about it, if'n they ain't digestible, they would fall under the category of "insoluable fiber", which is a good thing, or so "they" tell us, right?  Right!  Wu hu/forward unafraid!

Twisty, if it is not digestible the result could be ...ahem...gas and I have yoga tonight. As far as vegetable glycerine goes, it sure beat the Splenda my mother wanted to use and the brown sugar the recipie called for is not really nonnie friendly. The pie with fresh grated organic pumpkin(raised by yours truly) was great but I will admit it had cinnamon and allspice. I know a thousand lashes with a wet spelt noodle!

There was a time that I reacted to eggs, so I came up with a recipe that uses gelatin in place of eggs. The result, very crunchy cookies/crackers. I used fish gelatin, as regular gelatin is a no no for Bs.


I'm curious, Monika -- How do you know that fish gelatin is OK for B's?  (Didn't even know there was such a thing on the market!)

I use ground flax seeds in place of eggs, as Marianne described on the 24th.  They work very nicely in cookies, muffins, etc.

I've heard that they go right through you -- so they not only provide no nutrition whatsoever, they don't even provide all that nice soluble fiber that ground flax seeds offer.

Carol,
I asked Heidi about the fish gelatin and she said it is fine for Bs that can't have pork gelatin. I bought it from http://www.digestivewellness.com/
it has no fishy smell at all and u can use it in place of regular gelatin.

This weekend I plan to do some experimenting making ground flaxseed crackers, in anticipation of climbing back onto the high compliance wagon after the 1st. I really love plain crackers and also savory ones made with nut meal, so I bought some almond and pecan meal. I'm afraid my budget doesn't extend to macadamias for now, but that will change in the near future. Macadamias rule!

Anyway, I'll be sure to post any successes here and also in the recibase. I'm looking forward to having a cracker on hand that can satisfy my craving for something crunchy, without sending me into a diabetic coma or hurling me off the compliance wagon.

Can't wait to play in the kitchen!

actually no one is allowed pork.......so the fish gelatin sounds like a good option...
is that the 'kosher' one?

There are several kinds of gelatin (and "gelatin") that are marketed as kosher.

One is made from cattle that were slaughtered for kosher beef.  This would presumably be OK for anyone who can eat beef.

Another kind is kosher because it's not made from any animal at all, but rather is a combination of plant products, including a dismaying array of vegetable gums -- not good for anyone (unfortunately for me, since it's the only vegetarian "gelatin" I know of).

As for the fish gelatin, it should be possible to make a kosher gelatin from fish (it could even be pareve, since fish is considered neither meat nor dairy).  One would have to check the package to be sure, however.

Ah, but if it is true that they "go right through you" (and I don't know, one way or the other, if it is or is not true), that would also mean:

1.  That they provide insoluable fiber, which is important in the diet just as soluable fiber is; and
2.  They are good for weight reduction, as they "go right through you" (low-calorie, no fat, no-refined carbs/starch) and they are filling while on their way.

I much prefer something that goes right through, if that is the case, than something that I would probably eat otherwise that would be starchy and fattening.

I also like their potential, due to their sturdiness factor, for use as sandwich outters.  True, it wouldn't be anything like traditional "bread" or a traditional sandwich, but it still could work for a convenient little portable lunch or whatever.

This non is just very excited about ANYTHING that is grain-free, compliant, and is a good alternative to things I do best to steer clear of.

o...m...G!!!!!!!!!!  This is freakin' FANTASTIC!  How come this never came up on the forum before?  I've been looking for "alternative" gelatin for years and I even asked at my HFS once and got a blank stare in return.  Ideally, I envision a CERTIFIED ORGANIC beef gelatin, but for now I'll take this fish gelatin:

http://www.digestivewellness.com/itempage-1007-1-18-1542.html

This is the best thing EVER, thank you all so much for this!  I must have missed Heidi's column that day!  Man, you look away for one SECOND and you miss fish gelatin!  This site is the "LOST" of sites:  blink and you miss something CRUCIAL!

P.S.  Some of the wonderful farms that produce grassfed beef should look into making some certified organic gelatin out of the left-over bones...seriously.

Why does no one hire me as a consultant?  Unappreciated in my own time, OUT!

2.  They are good for weight reduction, as they "go right through you" (low-calorie, no fat, no-refined carbs/starch) and they are filling while on their way.


The reason that insoluble fiber is good for a person is that it soaks up water (though it doesn't actually dissolve, as the appropriately-named soluble fiber does).  That makes it swell up to several times its original size, so that a) it has kind of a "roto-rooter" effect on the digestive tract, and b) it makes you feel full (because you literally are full!).

Whole flax seeds, on the other hand, sort of just sit there.  You might as well eat rocks.

Hey, if it'll get some of this weight off, I'm up for it.  Seriously, I think they are a great alternative to a starchy, deep-fried chip (compliant or not) or a grain cracker (for nons, anyway).  I'm glad to have discovered them.  I think they will be a nice addition to my diet repertoire.  But to each her or his own.  I mean, if you don't want to eat rocks...

Well I was going to suggest agar-agar, but looked it up in typebase and it's an avoid for all nonnies, so no dice.  

Anyway, I plan to grind up my flaxseeds to make crackers, so they should do more than sit in my alimentary canal like a bunch of boulders in a washed-out gully. I'm really hoping this will be the answer for me too, as I've tried several kinds of crackers and none of them have worked out.
