Gluten-Free Graham Crackers

Gluten-Free Graham Crackers

6 cups almond flour*
2/3 cup sucanat (or brown sugar)
2 Tbs cinnamon
3/4 tsp salt
6 Tbs butter
3 eggs
1/3 cup honey
1 Tbs vanilla
1 Tbs molasses

Whisk together the almond flour, sucanat, cinnamon, and salt. Mix in the remaining ingredients until combined (you can do this with your hands). Divide the dough into 2 lumps. Place the dough on a baking stone (or a parchment lined baking tray), and roll out to 1/8″ -1/4″ thickness (place a sheet of parchment paper over the dough so that the rolling pin doesn’t stick to the dough). take the top sheet of parchment paper off. Cut into squares with a pizza cutter. Prick each piece with a fork. Bake at 300 for 20-30 minutes or until golden and starting to crisp on the edges (or desired crispness). Let cool on the trays (the crackers will harden as they cool). Enjoy!

*Note: Our family uses the almond pulp we get from making homemade almond milk, dehydrate it, and then pulse it in a blender to make flour.
