I was thinking how nice it would be to have a gluten-free substitute for Triscuits. I'm guessing maybe brown rice flour would be one ingredient. Any ideas on getting the crisp texture and all that? I know it won't taste the same, but if it's crunchy and salted, I'll probably like it :)

That is the one thing I miss, Tricuits! There is something about the texture and flavor that I love with cheese and dips. I would love to know of an alternative.

I am SALIVATING at the thought of that!
I told my husband the other day that most days, I really am "ok" with my diet---I cook great foods, make good lunches, specifically eat at places that cater to gluten-free needs.....
But then there are some days when you just want a darn TRISCUIT!

LOL Seems I hit a nerve!

I think I was putting peanut butter on them, as I recall. I think cheese too sometimes.

I haven't baked anything with buckwheat, but it is sorta on the heavy side, right? Maybe that can be added for texture. Then corn flour/meal for crunch? This might be all wishfull thinking, but who knows.

hmmm...ground sesame seeds? I'm not exactly sure why that comes to mind...

Well, the soft cheese spread is easy to make. It's the Triscuit which is the tough one.

I think it needs stuff that has a courser, crunchier texture. The ingredient choices I'm thinking of are:
rice bran
soy bran
millet flour
teff flour
corn flour

Here's some I know less about:
garbanzo flour
fava bean flour
quinoa flour

Anyone have experience with these or other ingredients to help narrow down what might work best?
