I think you're going to need to add another kind of "flour" with your wheat bran to get it to bind like a cracker. Dottie has a recipe that might help. You might also try making something like the cheese "crackers" and adding wheat bran, or take a look at one of the flax cracker recipes, and try adding or subbing wheat bran.

Bran Crackers
Recipe By : Dottie

1 cup wheat bran
1/3 cup protein powder
1 tablespoon sesame seeds -- toasted - optional
1 teaspoon salt -- (I use Mortons lite salt for theadded potassium)
1 1/2 cups water

Preheat oven to 350f. Spray a cookie sheet (I used a 11x14) heavily with
cooking spray (they will stick if you don't).
Mix all ingredients well and pour onto cookie sheet. Spread into a thin,
even layer.
Bake at 350f for 10 minutes, then take sheet out and, using a very sharp
knife, score through dough and make into desired size crackers.
Return to oven and bake an additional 15 minutes, then turn oven off and let
crackers sit in the oven for 1 - 1 1/2 hours to finish drying.

For sweet version: Add 2 packets splenda or other artificial sweetener and
1/2-1 teaspoon cinnamon (whatever you desire) to dry ingredients. When
adding wet - add 1/2 tsp vanilla.

I'm sure you could use other flavored extracts, maybe even nuts, to get a
"dessert cracker" or something you could use to crush for a pie crust.

I got 10 "Wasa Size" crackers out of 1 batch

I made these crackers and they are almost inedible...I'm wondering if they are missing an ingredient, maybe an egg or some fat?

Maybe you can use this recipe, minus the herbs and add some wheat bran in place of some of the measurement for the Splendid Bake Mix or the Almond flour?

I use 1/2 fine wheat bran and 1/2 flax meal. Moisten with Davincis syrup. Spread on parchment or a silicone mat. Nuke for 3 minutes. If not crisp, turn it over, and nuke another minute. Very crisp, very delicious, very easy, slightly sweet.

How moist are we getting this mixture, Soobee? This sounds really good, but wish you had a measurement for the DeVincis. Thanks!

I mix it to moisten only. I put it on a flat silicone mat, so I don't want it running all over the microwave. Don't worry if you add too much liquid. Just nuke it longer. Sometimes I mix water and Davincis, if I don't want it too sweet, although "too sweet" is an oxymoron for me.

I've used vanilla and caramel. They are both good. I think lots of flavors would work. I would measure this for you, but I discovered I have a sensitivity to wheat, so I haven't made them in awhile. Also,the bran varies in how it soaks up liquid. The fine bran will soak up twice as much liquid as the regular. Just add liquid until the whole thing is moistened. If it runs off the mat, you added too much! It will still cook just fine, but it will need more time.

I just made these tonight! This is what I did, tweaking the original recipe by Soobee:

*2 to 3 tbs DeVinci's Simple Syrup
*1/4 to 1/2 cup egg whites
1/4 cup wheat bran
1/4 cup flax meal

Mixed them all together until it had the texture of a firm oatmeal and then spread it on a silpat mat and in the microwave until it was nice and crispy! It took some time, I just kept testing it until it was crispy. I also turned it over half way through to get the underside crispy, too.
*(reason for the unsure measurements is because I just kept adding liquid until I got the right consistency, a little DeVinci's, a little egg water and so one, back and forth).

AMAZING TASTE AND TEXTURE! Thanks so much for the recipe Soobee!

It's a winner!! Here's a picture of it broken in pieces, ready to eat!! This piece is the size of a regular dinner plate. Net facts follow picture.
