28 Jun Gluten Free Graham Crackers

When I found out my current 18 month old couldn’t have dairy, gluten, eggs, soy, or peanuts I panicked. What could I have him take as a snack to the park? Crackers are hard to find. The kid loved graham crackers. I did find a soy, gluten, egg, dairy, nut free graham cracker at the store, and they weren’t bad. But, I was NOT going to pay over $5 for a small box all the time. I found this recipe and made a few modifications, but these are so yummy. I find myself snacking on these as well and now I have one happy little 18 month old. If you have several allergies, you may want to try making your own crackers.

Blend ingredients in a high powered blender.

After letting it sit in the refrigerator for 30 min., pull the dough of ball out and roll flat onto a cookie sheet. cut the dough into small squares. I have made these several times. This is the best method. I have tried rolling out similar to sugar cookies. They are too thick and taste more like a cookie than a crisp cracker.

Carter absolutely loves these graham crackers. You can see how happy they make him. . . and how hard it is to wait for them to cook. If you have little ones with food allergies this will be their favorite snack for sure! The first time I made them, I’m pretty sure I ended up eating most of them too. They are that yummy.

I slightly modified this recipe from:
