Vegan (or vegetarian) graham crackers!
So, I’ve sworn off meat (and dairy.. And eggs, if they’re not from the local farmer’s market..) for awhile now, and have REALLY been craving something that’s sweet.. And crunchy.. And.. Graham crackery. So, alas, I’ve come up with a new recipe for you.
VEGAN GRAHAM CRACKERS
1 1/2 c whole wheat flour
1/3rd c brown sugar
1 tsp cinnamon
Pinch of salt
1/4 cup olive oil
3 tbsp honey, or agave nectar (if vegan)
1 tsp vanilla
Pinch of nutmeg
1/2 tsp baking powder
2 tbsp flaxseed meal
1/2 c warm water
Cinnamon sugar for coating dough:
3 TBSP cinnamon to every 1/3rd cup of granulated sugar.
Mix EVERYTHING into a mixing bowl. Usually, it’s best to mix dry ingredients first, and then gradually add in the wet ones. Before rolling it out, sprinkle half of the cinnamon sugar on the piece of parchment paper you will be using. After everything is nice and even, roll it out on a piece of parchment paper. If you want more of a cracker, make it roughly 1/8th of an inch thick. If softer and more like a cookie, make in 1/4th of an inch thick. Use a pizza cutter to sector of how big you want the crackers, and use a fork to lightly press rows of holes into the dough. Sprinkle the rest of the sugar on the crackers, and bake for 25 to 35 minutes at 350 degrees, depending on how crispy you want them.
Eat them, eat them all.
By the way: Starting next weekend, the farmer’s market will be back and operating in my area! Yay! I’ll be starting up my $25 dollars a week challenge again. Stay tuned!
