These homemade graham crackers are gluten and refined sugar free. They’re perfect for making s’mores or graham cracker crumbs for pie, tart, and more!
I love this time of year. The weather has finally cooled down and it gives me the perfect opportunity to bake up a storm without my little kitchen turning into an oven itself, like in the summertime. There’s cookies for swapping, pies and cakes for parties, the list goes on and on.
With all of the baking I’ve been doing, finding quality ingredients has been essential. I’m so happy Costco found its way to Tulsa earlier this year! They carry many of the quality brands I use at prices that can’t be beat. Their Kirkand Signature brand is also very good and includes a lot of organic products.
They recently sent me a few products to review, some of which I already buy regularly, like Kirkland’s raw organic honey and maple syrup, which I love! I especially prefer to shop at Costco for my baking products because I can get larger quantities at a great price point, like a 4 lb bag of coconut sugar for less than the price of 2 lbs at a regular grocery store. I also love that all of their products are backed by a money-back guarantee, so I you don’t love it, you can take it back, no questions asked. (I’ve actually tested this and it’s true!)
I was able to use the ingredients from Costco to make these gluten-free honey graham crackers, which to me were actually better than the ones from the box! They’re perfect for making s’mores or to grind up to make graham cracker crumbs for pie, tart, and cheesecake crusts. I couldn’t even tell that they were gluten/refined sugar-free either! I hope you give them a try!
- 2 cups gluten-free all-purpose flour
- ¼ cup sweet rice flour, like Mochiko
- ½ cup coconut sugar
- 1.5 teaspoons cinnamon
- 1 teaspoon baking powder
- ½ teaspoon baking soda
- ½ teaspoon salt
- ½ cup (8 tablespoons) cold butter cut into pieces, dairy-free can be used
- 3-4 tablespoons milk (I used almond milk), more may be needed to form dough
- 3 tablespoons honey (use brown rice syrup for vegan alternative)
- 1 teaspoon vanilla
- Preheat oven to 325F. In a large bowl, blend together dry ingredients (flour–salt). Use a pastry blender to blend in butter until mixture is crumbly and no large chunks of butter remain. Stir in 3 tablespoons of milk and honey and blend until mixture comes together to form a ball, adding extra milk 1 tablespoon at a time, if necessary.
- Break dough up into two equal portions. Roll each piece between two pieces of parchment paper to about ⅛" thick. Dust the surface of the dough lightly with extra flour if dough is too sticky.
- Remove the top piece of parchment and use a pizza wheel to cut dough into your preferred shape, but don't separate the dough. I cut mine into 2x2-inch squares, but you can cut them into any shape you want. Prick with a fork or blunt end of a skewer.
- Transfer dough on the parchment paper to a cookie sheet. Bake for 20-30 minutes, until crackers are golden brown. Remove pan and cool completely on a cooling rack before breaking apart. They should crisp up as they cool. The grahams should break apart easily, but you can recut the lines, if needed. Makes about 2-3 dozen crackers, depending on how big you cut them.
- You can easily use these for graham cracker crumbs. I suggest letting them cool completely before grinding them up in a food processor.
