So I haven’t had a graham cracker in… years probably because the store-bought ones are full of junk but when I saw a recipe the other day, I decided that I was going to try to make my own. What follows here is my own concoction since I try to not bake with wheat or sugar. Not bad, if I have to say so myself… and oh, so easy to make!
Oat Graham Crackers
1/2 tsp cinnamon
1/2 tsp each baking soda and salt
2 Tb xylitol ( you can use sugar instead)
2 packets Stevia (you can use sugar instead)
2 Tb agave syrup (or maple syrup, or honey)
1 tsp vanilla
1 T coconut oil (or regular canola oil)
1/4 cup plus 1 Tb water
Preheat oven at 350.
Combine all ingredients in a bowl; it will make a sticky dough. Place one sheet of wax paper on your counter and dump dough on it. Place a second sheet on top and flatten it with a rolling pin (graham cracker thickness). Remove top layer of wax paper and cut into 16 squares.
Spray cookie sheet with nonstick cooking spray and invert wax paper and dough unto it. Peel wax paper off.
Bake for 12 to 16 minutes, depending on how crispy you like your graham crackers.
