1/2 Cup Sesame Seeds
1/4 Cup Water
1/2 tsp. Salt
Red Pepper To Taste
Melted Butter

Directions:
Preheat Over to 325 Degrees

Put Sunflower Seeds and Parmesan Cheese in a food processor with the S blade and process until the sunflower seeds are a fine meal with almost a flour consistency. Add water and Sesame Seeds and pulse the processor until the dough is well blended, soft and sticky. Add the salt and sprinkle the red pepper lightly. Pulse again to mix.

Cover a cookie sheet with a piece of baking parchment. Turn the dough out onto the cookie sheet in the form of a ball. (I usually use two cookie sheets and divide the dough in half to have better control). Place a piece of wax paper over the dough ball and roll the dough flat into as thin a sheet as possible using a rolling pin. Remove the wax paper covering the top but leave the parchment paper during baking. Brush the dough with melted butter. Cut the dough into squares using a pizza cutter.

Bake for about 30 minutes or until evenly browned. Peel off the parchment paper, break along the scored lines. Let the crackers cool. Store.

Yield about 6 dozen with a trace of carbohydrates, a trace of fiber and l gram of protein. The whole batch has just 13 grams of usable carbohydrates.

Personal Notes:
These crackers are a really good treat. Everytime I serve them, everyone wants the recipe. They are especially good for a diet as they satisfy the need to have a crunchy snack and have just a trace of carbohydrates and almost no calories.
