Gluten Free Vegan Graham Cracker Recipe

Recipe Entered into the Summer Wellness Weekend Event at:
  DietDessertnDogs.com Wellness Weekend Event

Check it out!!
These gluten free, vegan graham crackers have an amazing resemblence to traditional graham crackers in taste and texture.  Enjoy these delicious gluten free vegan graham crackers with an ice cold glass of almond milk, crumbled in some fresh homemade soy yogurt, as a delicious berry pie crust or smothered in nice warm chocolate frosting!

My kids devoured these crackers!  They are much healthier than the refined, processed junk you find in the grocery store.  These gluten free vegan graham crackers are made low in sugar and high in fiber.  If you have little toddlers who LOVE crackers make up a double batch of these and store them in the freezer.  You can feel much better about giving your children these gluten free, whole grain, low sugar graham crackers.

I have used these graham crackers for a cashew ice cream pie crust and it was absolutely delicious!  If you have been craving graham crackers but don't enjoy the gluten free ones available give this one a try!

For a Non-gluten free vegan graham cracker
or as my daughter would say....a Glutenated Graham Cracker

For those not on a gluten free diet you may be able to use whole wheat pastry flour, however be aware that the recipe was designed for gluten free flour which may absorb more moisture so you may have to tweek the amount of flour you use in the recipe if you convert it to whole wheat pastry flour.   If you aren't moderately handy in modifying recipes it may not turn out.

Gluten Free Vegan Graham Cracker Recipe

1/4 c. brown rice syrup
1/4 c. applesauce
1/3 c. turbinado sugar
1 tsp. vanilla
1 1/2 c. all purpose gluten free flour
1/3 c. coconut flour
1 c. sorghum flour
1 tsp. baking powder
1/2 tsp. baking soda
1/4 tsp. salt
1/4 c. soymilk

Preheat oven to 350.  Roll out and cut into rectangles, be sure to roll them thin enough about 1/8 inch thick.
If you do not roll them thin enough they will be softer like a cookie and less like a crispy cracker.  You can use a fork to make the impressions and a knife to make the impression like the photo if you like.  Bake them at 350 for about 10 minutes. 

*Depending on how thick you roll your crackers it may take less or more time to bake them.

Enjoy~!

My kids loved these! Next time I need to try and get them thinner, mine were a little too thick but my kids still loved them.

Thanks!

Hi Tandi,
I'm very impressed with your awesome site. Your recipes all look very tasty and family friendly. I really like what you are doing with the new cultured vegan items. That is something everyone needs to know about.

This sounds like a great recipe. While I've mostly used graham crackers for pie crust, I also enjoy them on their own--I think I'd save these to have alongside a glass of cold almond milk.

Thanks so much for submitting to Wellness Weekend this week!
