Gluten-Free Graham Crackers

I went through a phase in college where graham crackers were a staple in my cupboard.  I was a busy, poor college student and they worked for a quick breakfast with peanut butter, snack on the go, or after dinner treat.  No, not the healthiest but I’m sure there was worse I could have been living off of.

As I got older (and smarter) I phased out my graham cracker obsession.  It became a treat I would enjoy from time to time but now that I don’t eat gluten the only time I purchase any at all is for The Love Nugget.

Even then I have a hard time because of all the added ingredients they throw in there.  Sure, there are some healthier brands on the market.  Annie’s Homegrown Organic is always my go-to choice but usually when I go to reach for a box I have one constant thought in the back of my mind.  I can make these at home.

So not only did I make them at home, I made them so that I could enjoy them too and relive some memories of my poor, starving college student days 🙂

Gluten-Free Graham Crackers

Gluten-Free Graham Crackers

Ingredients

  • 1 cup coconut flour
  • 1/2 c blanched almond flour
  • 1 tsp. baking powder
  • 1/2 tsp. sea salt
  • 1 tsp. cinnamon
  • 3/4 cup coconut oil (or butter)
  • 1 tsp vanilla
  • 1/4 cup coconut sugar
  • 1/4 cup honey
  • 1 egg white

Instructions

  1. Preheat oven to 325 degrees and line a baking sheet with parchment paper.
  2. In a large bowl, sift together coconut flour, almond flour, baking powder, salt and cinnamon.
  3. In a separate bowl, cream, coconut oil, vanilla, coconut sugar, honey and egg white.
  4. Add the dry ingredients to the wet and mix well.
  5. Roll out a large disc between two sheets of parchment paper.
  6. Using a pizza cutter, cut desired size squares then carefully transfer using a spatula to prepared baking sheet.
  7. Refrigerate on the baking sheet for 15 minutes.
  8. Then bake for 15-17 minutes or until lightly golden brown.
  9. *These crackers are a softer, chewier graham cracker. If you want them crisper I suggest using a little more butter and baking a little longer.
