Zweiback, or something else?

I've been making my basic wholewheat ciabatta for years; I can do it on autopilot. Yesterday, my autopilot failed when I was trying to proof bread AND do the laundry. I formed the bread into boules for the last rise and ... forgot about it. Hours later, after the laundry had been folded and put away, I looked into the kitchen and freaked. I baked the "loaves" anyway. They spread out and are 1-1/2 inches high :) They are somewhat coarse, but don't taste at all bad.
