Summer Fun With Gluten Free Graham Crackers!
Written by Alia Sinclair on
Some things just taste better in the summertime. Like a gooey s’more made over a campfire or a refreshing strawberry pie with a graham cracker crust.
We’re all about tasty desserts and summertime fun, so we’ve developed delicious gluten free graham crackers to use in any of your favorite summer treats.
Thick, sweet, flaky, and delicious, our gluten free graham crackers are handmade and baked to perfection.
We can’t give all of our secrets away, but we can tell you a little bit about how these gluten free graham crackers are so darn good.
Gluten Free Graham Cracker Secret Ingredients
Domestic Clover Honey
Our gluten free graham crackers are free of processed sugars! To get that sweet golden taste we use a simple, clean and versatile domestic clover honey.
The honey in our graham crackers is also what causes them to turn that gorgeous gold-brown color in the oven.
Bring on the Butter!
There is nothing in the baked-goods world (or basically any food world) that a generous helping of butter does not improve. Our gluten free graham crackers are no different!
The combination of melted butter and the sweetness of honey united with our special flour blend is ultimately what brings these graham crackers to life.
How It's Done
Much like the caterpillar who must first become a confused puddle of goo before it can become a butterfly, our gluten free graham cracker batter begins as a goopy dough.
It’s difficult to imagine that bowl of goo becoming a delicious graham cracker, but that’s where the magic of the method comes in!
Our secret is to take our graham cracker dough in all its goopy-caterpillar-like glory and roll it out very thinly on top of a sprinkling of flour.
The thin dough rises up magnificently when baked, creating the layered, crunchy, honey-comb like interior of our graham crackers.
Do Not Tarry in the Eating
Because our gluten free graham crackers are fresh and homemade, we recommend eating them within a couple of weeks after purchase.
Once the package has been opened, the graham crackers will start to take on moisture and will go stale.
The good news is you’ll have an excuse to eat them quickly!
