I thought I would experiment with a little gluten free baking since we are stuck inside with the arrival of Hurricane Sandy.
On the menu…homemade graham crackers.
Graham crackers are one of my most favorite comfort foods.
I just love ’em.
I was inspired by one of my colleagues, The Spicy RD who posted a gluten free graham cracker recipe on her blog. Check out her version here!
So…I went out and gathered up various gluten free grains. Some of these flours are seriously new to me.
Hello….Sorgham, buckwheat, tapioca starch…
Most commercial graham crackers are filled with high fructose corn syrup and hydrogenated fats. YUCK..unhealthy junk. And these homestyle grahams have such a visual appeal.
My recipe simple uses a bit of pure maple syrup, butter, cinnamon, vanilla and a mixture of flours.
My favorite way to enjoy a graham crackers is straight up. No chocolate, no marshmallows just the cracker itself. But these certainly would make a special s’mores treat!
And, here are the recipes for you!
And the wheat variety with honey recipe for my NON-Fodmapers!
