Grain Free Graham Crackers and Graham Cracker Crumbs

Grain Free Graham Crackers and Crumbs

I used to eat graham crackers all the time.  I’d either slather them with peanut butter (hey I didn’t even know almond butter existed) or dip them in milk.  It was always a nice treat!  Well, since I cut out the grains I needed a subsitute that would hold up to the original and I definitely found it!  They are easy to make…just combine the ingredients, roll out (I used a glass…I should probably invest in a rolling pin), and cut into graham cracker shapes (I used a pizza cutter).  I put them to the test, by slathering them with almond butter.  Perfect!

With the holiday season upon us there is lots of baking going on.  Chances are at least one of the recipes you plan to make require graham cracker crumbs. The good news is that you can easily take the Homemade Grain Free Graham Crackers and turn them into crumbs by running them through a food processor (or I’m sure smashing them to pieces would work too).  It’s a great way to cut out the grains and still enjoy some holiday treats.

    How would I make these like the regular cinnamon/sugar. I could use. Stevia and cinnamon, but how would I get it to stick?
