Are graham crackers gluten free?
Graham crackers are named after Sylvester Graham who, in the early 1800's, promoted a vegetarian diet centred around wheat. So no, the original graham crackers, or graham wafers as they are sometimes called, are not gluten free. Fortunately, it's easy to make your own homemade gluten free honey wafers with this recipe.
Graham Crackers Recipe with Almond Flour
I've found that almond flour with honey makes a very nice grain free cracker. If you have a food processor, it only takes a minute to buzz the seven ingredients together. Then, roll the dough out and bake it for a few minutes. Cut it into cracker shapes, poke some cute little holes in them, and return them to the oven to finish toasting. You'll have a great little snack or framework for your campfire s'mores!

What if I don't have a food processor?
My food processor is one of my most used kitchen appliances, and I don't want to be without one. Small kitchen appliances are one of the important investments I make for my gluten free diet. Rather than buying expensive gluten free processed food, I can make my own wholesome, nutritious food at home with the help of some key appliance. My stand mixer (affiliate link) is the other one that I wouldn't want to give up.
However, don't let the lack of a food processor keep you from enjoying these tasty treats.
Instructions without a Food Processor
- Whisk together the almond flour, tapioca flour, cinnamon, and salt.
- Cut in the butter with a pastry blender or two knives as you would when making pie crust. The goal is to evenly distribute the butter throughout the dry ingredients in little beads smaller than peas.
- In another mixing bowl, whisk the egg. Then, whisk in the honey until they are blended together.
- Stir the egg mixture into the flour mixture until it is evenly combined into a ball of dough.
- Proceed to follow the directions for rolling, baking, and cutting.
- food processor
- ¾ cup (84 g) almond flour
- ¾ cup (90 g) tapioca flour or starch
- 1 teaspoon (3 g) ground cinnamon
- ¼ teaspoon (1.5 g) fine sea salt
- 1 large (50 g) egg
- 2 tablespoons (30 mL) honey
- ½ cup (113.5 g) butter
- Preheat the oven to 350° F.
- Combine the flours, cinnamon, and salt in the bowl of a food processor.
- Add the egg, honey, and butter. Process until it sticks together and forms a ball.
- Roll out the dough between two layers of oiled parchment paper until it's about ⅛" thick. (You can oil each parchment on the side that will be in contact with the dough by rubbing the excess butter from an empty butter wrapper against it. Otherwise, use a few drops of avocado oil or a little extra butter and rub it between the two layers.)
- After rolling out the dough, peel off the top layer of parchment paper.
- Bake on middle rack of preheated oven for 10 minutes.
- Remove from oven. Reduce oven temperature to 300° F. Cut the dough into squares or rectangles for crackers with a pizza cutter. Poke lots of holes in them with a fork. Turn them over and return to oven to bake for another 10 minutes, or until they are nicely browned on both sides.
