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.

Homemade Wheat Thins Style Crackers

Ingredients:

  • 3 3/4 cups whole wheat flour
  • 3 Tbs honey granules (or sugar)
  • 1 Tbs salt
  • 3/4 tsp paprika
  • 1 1/2 sticks cold butter, sliced
  • 3/4 cup water
  • 3/4  tsp vanilla
  • Salt, for topping

Directions:

1. Combine flour, salt, honey granules, and paprika in a medium bowl. Cut in butter with a fork or pastry blender, until small crumbs form. Or, combine the dry ingredients and butter in a food processor bowl and pulse until crumbly.

2. Make a well in the center, and add the water and vanilla. Stir to mix, then use clean hands to knead a few times, just enough to form a ball of dough. (Add just a tad more water, only if needed.) Divide dough into two pieces.

3. Lightly grease two 11″ x 15″ baking sheets  and sprinkle lightly with salt.

4.Roll the dough until about 1/4 inch thick on the trays. Sprinkle tops with salt. Cut the dough into square crackers with a pizza cutter.

6. Bake at 400 degrees for 5-10 minutes, until crisp and lightly browned. Crackers will become more crispy as they cool, so don’t over-bake! (Remove edge crackers that are getting too dark if the middle crackers aren’t quite done yet, and continue baking.)

7. Remove baked crackers from sheets and cool on a wire rack. Serve warm or cool, plain or with dips or  and store leftover crackers in a sealed bag or container.

Ruthie’s Unleavened Bread

This is one of our favorite unleavened bread recipes. It's so easy and turns out perfectly every time.

This is one of our favorite unleavened bread recipes. It’s so easy and turns out perfectly every time. :)

4 cups whole wheat flour

1/3 cup olive or or melted butter
3 Tbs. honey
1 1/4 cup very hot water

Stir all the ingredients together until it forms into a ball. Roll out dough on baking stones until desired thickness from (1/8″-1/4″). Cut dough into desired size (a pizza cutter works well) and poke each piece with a fork. Bake at 350 degrees for 10-15 minutes or until done. The longer the unleavened bread cooks the crispier it will get.

Unleavened Raisin Bread

2/3 cup olive oil
2/3 cup milk
1/2 cup honey
1 egg
4 cup flour
1 tsp cinnamon
1/2 tsp salt
1 cup raisins

Beat the olive oil, milk, honey, and egg until combined.  In a separate bowl, mix the flour, cinnamon, and salt. Add the dry ingredients to the wet ingredients and mix. Add additional flour if needed until the dough forms a mass; add the raisins and mix until combined. Divide the dough in half.  Roll each piece of dough out to desired thickness (I do about 1/4″”) on a baking stone or a parchment lined jelly roll pan. Prick the dough with a fork to eliminate air bubbles. Sprinkle a mixture of 2 Tbs sucanat (or sugar) and 1/2 tsp cinnamon over the surface of the dough. Bake at 375 degrees for 15-18 minutes or until golden on the edges (over baking will cause it to be too brittle). Cut into squares; serve warm or cool on a wire rack.
