No need to reach for a box. These soaked gluten free graham crackers are easy to make and properly prepared. Your kids will love them. And so will you!
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).
