Almond flour graham crackers that are vegan, grain-free & paleo! A perfect energizing snack or treat, they are even better than the original.
I thought I might talk about graham crackers today. Perhaps you love them as much as I do?
When I was little, my mother rarely bought sweets. A die-hard Co-op shopper, she encouraged whole grain toast smeared with peanut butter, fresh or dried fruit, or a handful of her homemade granola as snacks. Chips and cookies were for special occasions only, and the latter were almost always homemade.
Graham crackers were the exception. The familiar blue box was almost always on-hand and we were allowed to have them for afternoon nibbling anytime. My dad almost always sandwiched them with peanut butter, but I loved their true flavor unaltered with a glass of milk alongside (at least until summer camping and s’more weather came around).
In this month of healthy, portable food posts, it seems high time for a sold dose of graham cracker comfort, but in a form that can be enjoyed by almost everyone.

If this is your first attempt at homemade crackers of any sort, prepare yourself: they are a breeze to mix and make. The absence of gluten actually has a major advantage: you can roll and re-roll the dough as much as you like and the dough will not become tough.
I like to take these out of the oven when they are light golden brown, just beginning to darken at the edges. They may look slightly soft, but they will crisp up as they cool.
