Tips for making Gluten-Free Graham Crackers:

  • Due to the unique nature of buckwheat flour, I do not recommend replacing it with anything else.

  • The tapioca starch can be replace with arrowroot starch or cassava flour in a pinch!

  • The coconut oil can be replaced by melted butter, ghee, or olive oil.

  • Want to make Sugar-Free Graham Crackers? I like to use this sugar-free sweetener for replacing coconut sugar in baked goods.

  • Want to make Honey Grahams? Replace the coconut sugar with raw honey.

  • I do not recommend skipping the refrigeration step, as this is what will make the dough easier to roll out and work with.

  • I also do not recommend rolling the dough without the use or parchment or wax paper. It is a somewhat sticky dough, and the paper will allow you to roll it out with ease.

  • You can roll the dough out as thinly or thickly as you would prefer; just keep in mind you may need to cook longer for thicker crackers and for a shorter period of time for thin crackers. Just make sure all is firm, golden and edges are just beginning to brown before removing from the oven.

  • These gluten-free graham crackers store well in air-tight containers at room temperature for up to 5 days.

Ingredients

  • 3/4 cup buckwheat flour
  • 1/4 cup + 2 tablespoons tapioca starch
  • 5 tablespoons coconut sugar
  • 1 teaspoon ground cinnamon
  • 1/4 teaspoon baking soda
  • 1/8 teaspoon ground cloves
  • 1/8 teaspoon sea salt
  • 1/4 cup milk I use almond, but any dairy or non-dairy milk is fine
  • 2 tablespoons melted coconut oil
  • Optional: turbinado sugar for sprinkling on top

Instructions

  • In a large mixing bowl sift together flours, sugar, spices and baking soda. Stir to combine.
  • Pour in milk and stir in until thoroughly combined.
  • Pour in coconut oil and then using your hands, quickly work the oil into the dough.
  • Knead the dough until all is thoroughly combined and you are able to form a uniform ball.
  • Cover the dough and place into the refrigerator for 1 hour.
  • Preheat the oven to 350°F.
  • Line a cookie sheet with parchment paper.
  • Remove your dough ball from the refrigerator and place it on your parchment lined pan. Flatten the dough with your hands and then cover with a second sheet of parchment paper.
  • Using a rolling pin, gently roll out the dough, making sure it remains between the two sheets of parchment, until the dough is 1/4-1/2 inch thick.
  • Slowly peel away the top layer of parchment paper.
  • Using a pizza cutter or sharp knife, slice the dough into shapes of choice.
  • Using a fork, prick the tops of the crackers to create little holes.
  • Optionally, sprinkle the tops with a little turbinado sugar.
  • Bake for 20 minutes, or until the edges are just beginning to brown.
  • Remove from the oven and let cool completely before breaking along your cut marks and serving.
  • Enjoy!

    Hi, I just made this and I love the taste! Although I’m not sure about the texture- is it supposed to be a bit chewy? Some middle pieces were more like bread than crackers, is it supposed to be like that or I should have rolled the dough thinner maybe?

      Hi Elena – thank you for sharing! They definitely should not be chewy, I’m guessing they either need to be rolled thinner or as ovens can vary a bit, baked a bit longer next time!
