Don’t cry just because you can no longer have graham crackers courtesy of your gluten sensitivity or the simple desire to enjoy the numerous health benefits that going gluten-free offers. That’s because more and more baked goods that are devoid of gluten are showing up practically everywhere, and gluten-free graham crackers are some of them.
Unfortunately, many people dodging gluten who have tried those supermarket-bought gluten-free graham crackers were not happy at all. Just like numerous other gluten-free products in the current market, those graham crackers without any gluten in them were not at all like the real deal — they tasted blah and were hard as bricks!
Much of the gluten-free graham crackers out there are no good for snacking. Needless to say, they’re practically unusable for making graham cracker pie crusts.
Does this mean that you should simply accept the fact that you’ll be living the rest of your life without graham crackers since you cannot consume regular graham crackers because of their gluten content and you cannot stomach the thought of munching on gluten-free graham crackers because they are horrible? Not quite.
There is a quick solution to this gastronomic and culinary dilemma, and that is simply by making your own gluten-free graham crackers at home. They are light and crisp just like the real thing, but they are 100 percent free of gluten, so they’re perfect for anyone who is sensitive to gluten or likes to shun it for good in exchange for health perks.
You will be surprised how really hassle-free it is to make the best gluten-free graham crackers from scratch — all of the ingredients needed can be easily purchased from your favorite supermarket or bake supplies store. And also, it will take only about half an hour for you to come up with these well-loved treats!
Let’s get started!
1 1/2 cups of brown rice flour
1/3 cup of brown sugar
1/2 cup of cornstarch
6 tablespoons of milk
5 tablespoons of butter
3 tablespoons of raw honey
1 teaspoon of baking powder
1/2 teaspoon of sea salt (finely ground)
With the help of your food processor, mix brown rice flour, cornstarch, baking powder, salt and brown sugar.
Add butter. Pulse until all of the ingredients are mixed very well.
Add milk and raw honey. Pulse until you end up with dough.
Have a 12×16 parchment paper dusted with brown rice flour. Place the dough on top of it and flatten a little.
Dust some brown rice flour on the dough and place another 12×16 parchment paper on it.
Using a rolling pin, flatten the dough until it’s about 1/8 of an inch thick.
Grab a pizza wheel and cut the dough into rectangles. Then reach for a fork and put holes on the dough.
Allow the dough to chill in the refrigerator for about 10 minutes.
Get your oven preheated to 350°F.
Bake the dough for 10 minutes or until everything is evenly brown.
Once cooked, transfer to a wire rack and allow to cool. Break along the lines and serve.
