I have made some crunchy crackers that are low-carb and very easy! I’ve previously failed to get a crunch with other recipe combinations. Preheat the oven to 140 degrees Celsius Soak 4 tbsp Chia seeds in 120ml water for 10mins or more until absorbed. It will be like a gel. Meanwhile shell your pistachios and crush in pestle and mortar (or quick blend). I kept some quite large chunks. I get big bags of pistachios at Asda as they are cheap and nice and high fibre. Then add to your chia gel the following ingredients: 8 tbsp crushed piatachios (measured after crushing) 4 tbsp UF FF (60g) 2 tbsp sesame oil (or olive oil) 2 tbsp sesame seeds (optional) A couple of pinches of sea salt or more. Mix and it will stick together into a ball Roll the ball out between 2 sheets of baking parchment to thickness 4mm (1/6 inch) thick. (I have a rolling pin with different depth options) Remove top layer of baking paper. Use pizza roller to cut into squares. Bake at 140 Celsius 45 mins on one side. Turn over and cook for another 30 mins or more on the other side. Even leave in oven with door open. This is to get them really dried out. This quantity made 24 crackers and I estimate they are each 0.7g net carbs, 2.8g total carbs, 2.1g fibre, 2.3g fat, 1g protein, 32 kcal. Next time I may try more seasoning now I’ve achieved the crunch.

I am really happy with the bread I’m making using the Lonjevity website recipe called Bread Machine Tips. https://www.lonjevity-foods.com/bread-machine-keto-prebiotic Updated - RECIPE FOR LARGER LOAF - as previously shown at the weblink above. The photo below is this 'larger loaf'. The webpage above now has the recipe for a smaller loaf, which Gerry apparently thinks cooks better, but I haven't had an issue with the larger one and you don't need to make a larger loaf so often so I still prefer it! Larger loaf 350g warm water 12g butter 300g Ultrafine Fiberflour 200g Fiberflour 7g salt 7g baking powder 14g dried yeast 1 egg Warm water in the bottom of the tin first Add butter (it helps it melt/mix) Cover with all flour Other dry ingredients on top of flour Make a small indent in the centre of the flour, crack the small egg in it I also sometimes use sesame oil rather than butter and I tip in about 30g sesame seeds too (I love sesame and it adds to the flavour). Turn machine on... Basic Bake Rapid (1hr 55mins) Dark crust setting on Panasonic XL loaf size (NB in Gerry's old recipe for the above on the website had 300gFF and 200gUFFF but I prefer to reverse the amounts so that it is 300g UFFF 200g FF). https://www.lonjevity-foods.com/bread-machine-keto-prebiotic
