Mmmm.. graham crackers without the graham!

<insert chorus of angels here>

I have done it! I’ve made graham crackers! Oh man it was so easy. And they were SO good! Oh thankyouthankyouthankyou Vegan Cupcakes Take Over the World!!

Switching up the ingredients until I was dizzy (true to form, I know), I ended up with some truly unique and awesome graham crackers. It was hard to even wait until they were cooked! I kept eating the scraps I sliced off instead of adding them to the re-rolling pile! But they were 100 times better after they were baked, so try really, really hard to not follow my (bad) example!

I think I’m going to try throwing these into some ice cream with my new ICE CREAM MAKER! More on that bad boy later!


Cocoa Almond Graham Crackers
3/4 cup all purpose flour
1/2 cup dark rye flour
1/4 cup wheat bran
1/4 cup packed almond meal
1/4 cup granulated sugar
1 tablespoon dark cocoa powder
1/2 teaspoon baking soda
1/2 teaspoon cinnamon
1/2 teaspoon salt
1/4 cup extra virgin olive oil
2 tablespoons molasses
3/4 teaspoon vanilla extract
1/4 teaspoon almond extract
1/4 cup skim milk

Preheat oven to 350 degrees. Line a baking sheet with parchment paper and set aside. In a large bowl, mix flours, cocoa powder, baking soda, cinnamon and salt. In a separate bowl, whisk together oil, molasses and extracts. Pour wet mixture into dry mixture and whisk gently with a fork. Add milk and keep stirring until mixed. Use hands to fully form a pliable dough. Place dough ball on a lightly floured surface, sprinkle a light coating of flour on top and roll out until about 1/8 inch thick. Using a pizza cutter, cut dough into desired sizes. (I got roughly 29 graham crackers) Strip away rough edges and add to “re-rolling” pile. Using a thin spatula, move slices to baking sheet and use a fork to lightly poke holes in cracker dough. Bake 12 – 14 minutes depending on size. Allow to cool completely on cookie sheet.

Nom nom NOM!
