Soaked Gluten Free Graham Crackers | Just Take A Bite

If you’ve been reading my blog for very long you know that I have a small obsession with graham crackers.

I don’t know why. But they have been one of my absolute favorite foods for many many years now.

They are my go-to snack when I don’t feel well. Not too sweet. But just sweet enough. Always the perfect treat.
I’ve made quite a few varieties of graham crackers over the years. Every time I have a new dietary restriction I think…will I have to give up my beloved graham crackers?!

Recently I started eating gluten free. Which means I can’t have my yummy homemade whole wheat grahams.

So of course I got to work creating a gluten free version. Pure heaven.

These crackers are very easy to make, the grains are soaked (which makes them easier to digest) and they are very allergen friendly.

No eggs, dairy, gluten, rice, corn, oats or nuts. I think they are even vegan (although I don’t know much about it…is honey vegan?).

I’m so happy that I don’t have to give up one of my favorite foods…and that I can eat it without getting a stomach ache (or a whole host of other symptoms).

Do you like graham crackers?

Give these soaked gluten free graham crackers a try. Even if you don’t have to eat gluten free these are a great snack to get some variety in your diet.

    I have not done them fully in the oven, but I’m pretty sure it would work. You’d just have to keep a close eye on them. They would probably be done faster in the oven.

    Does the sugar play any role in texture? Can I reduce the amount. I made these last night and they turned out i think. My father in law liked them so much he asked to make a whole batch just for him. They were a bit too sweet for me and kind of had a burned sugar taste. I used coconut sugar and palm shortening so maybe why the weird taste but FIL sure liked them.

    • Mary says:


      You could reduce the sugar a bit and they would probably be just fine. Maybe try 1/3 cup or 1/4 cup and see what happens. I personally like cane sugar better because it has a milder/more neutral flavor. I’m glad your FIL liked them! I just made a fresh batch myself yesterday 🙂 They are going quickly.

    I just finished these for a graham crust. They are delicious! I will have to make another batch this week just for snacking.

  4. Sarah says:

    I am wondering about the flours. I don’t have a gluten-free flour mix, but I have some of the whole grains by themselves and I have cassava flour, white rice (can make into flour) and arrowroot. Can it be just one of those ingredients as a flour or does it have to be a combination? If so, can you share the ratios? Thanks!

    • Use whatever combination of flours you have on hand, Sarah. I usually use two or three mixed together. Like the recipe says, make 1/2 cup a “white” or starchy flour like tapioca, arrowroot or white rice. The other 1 1/2 cups can be whatever you like. I usually mix a grain (sorghum/brown rice/oat) and a seed (amaranth, quinoa, millet). But just about anything will work. And the 1 1/2 cups can definitely be just one kind of flour (though not another starchy one).

    Have you ever tried using oil such as sunflower oil instead of coconut oil/butter/lard? My son with severe allergies can only have sunflower oil and wondering how it would effect the recipe… thank you I am very eager to try these esp as we live overseas and there are no graham crackers of any kind.

    what happened to the pumpkin spice graham cracker recipe?! We loved that one…. any chance you could direct me to it…. ppllleeaaasssseeeee 🙂

  7. Erin says:

    Hello! I’d like to try this recipe, but cannot find organic white rice anywhere. All I have is organic white flour and arrowroot. Would these two work?

  8. Erin says:

    Man, I really wanted this recipe to work! Unfortunately, I’ve tried this recipe twice with no success. The first time I used regular white wheat flour, and the second time I used amaranth and sorghum. I followed the recipe exactly, using the dehydrator on high for 8 hours. They turned out very greasy and chewy, not crisp.

    • Oh man! So sorry to hear that Erin. I haven’t made these in a long time, so I can’t troubleshoot for you. But sounds like there was too much liquid or it could be the baking soda. That can play a big role. You could try cutting it in half or getting rid of it all together and see if that helps.
