Homemade Graham Crackers with no gluten or dairy

Homemade Graham Crackers with no gluten or dairy
Sylvester Graham was a stoic man.  He lived in the time of Hawthorne, Longfellow and Poe. A Presbyterian minister he advocated a life of temperance and sexual restraint.  A diet of vegetarianism featuring whole wheat flour was promoted by Graham who also suggested refined foods were linked to the inability to fight off disease.  His lectures, which focused on curbing carnal inclinations, captivated thousands.  His many followers were know as "Grahamites" who followed his "Graham Diet."

The graham cracker was one of his creations, utilizing whole wheat flour.  It was meant to be satisfying and aid digestion. This is our gluten free, dairy free version.  Our favorite way to enjoy them is with a cold glass of coconut milk.

  • 1 package of our gluten free gingerbread cookie mix or your own favorite recipe
  • 1/4 cup molasses 
  • 1 tbsp canola oil
  • 1 tbsp water, more if the dough seems to dry to you

Preheat oven to 350 degrees F (180 degrees C).  Cream together water, oil and molasses, blending well.  Add gingerbread mix to creamed mixture, blending well. Spread onto a parchment lined cookie sheet.  Score the dough so the crackers will bread apart when baked.  Prick the centers with a fork.   Bake for 10 to 12 minutes.
