Graham Crackers: Grain free – Gluten free – Sugar free

One day, I was busy making snacks for my family and really wanted a healthy graham cracker. I couldn’t find a recipe that fit all my needs (and there were a lot of them!). I ended up creating this recipe using ingredients I had on hand to make a grain free, gluten free and sugar free graham cracker. I was really pleased with the way this cracker recipe turned out! Because this was a sweeter type cracker, I served it with a cream cheese mint chocolate chip dip.

We try to eat gluten free in our house along with grain free and sugar free. It is pretty hard to find a cracker recipe that fits all of those requirements. I love that this recipe is not only easy to make, but isn’t too messy either. This is a great recipe to have the kids join you in the kitchen to help.

This low carb graham cracker recipe is full of high quality ingredients and good for your nutrition you can feel good giving to your kids. No gluten here! These graham crackers are gluten, grain and sugar free too.

This isn’t just like a Graham cracker, but it is sweet and cinnamon flavored – just what I was looking for in a cracker!

What flours should you have in your pantry for low carb baking?

I try to keep my pantry stocked with some of the most common low carb and paleo flours so I can make different recipes when I need. I shared my Keto Grocery List which has the most common foods you should stock if you are following a low carb or keto lifestyle.

Some of my favorite flours to have on hand are almond flour, coconut flour, and ground flaxseeds. Now remember, you can’t just sub different flours in various recipes. Especially when you are making low carb or grain free recipes.

So my recommendation is to always follow the recipe with the flours listed if you want the best outcome. Obviously you are always welcome to experiment if you want to try something new though!

The Magic of Almond Flour: A Mom’s Best Friend in Low Carb Baking

Almond flour, a popular alternative to traditional wheat flour, is a superstar in the world of low carb baking. It’s made from ground almonds, which means it’s naturally gluten-free and low in carbs, but high in protein and fiber. But that’s not all! Here are some of the amazing benefits of almond flour that make it a must-have in every mom’s kitchen.

1. Low in Carbohydrates:

Almond flour contains a fraction of the carbs found in wheat flour, making it perfect for low-carb diets. This means you can still enjoy your favorite baked goods without worrying about a carb overload.

2. High in Nutrients:

Almond flour is packed with vitamins and minerals, including vitamin E, iron, and magnesium. It’s a great way to sneak some extra nutrients into your family’s diet.

3. Easy to Use:

Almond flour can be substituted for regular flour in most recipes, making it an easy switch. Plus, it adds a delicious nutty flavor to your baked goods that everyone will love.

4. Great for Gluten-Free Baking:

If you or a family member is gluten intolerant, almond flour is a fantastic alternative. It’s naturally gluten-free, so you can bake to your heart’s content without any worries.

5. Heart Healthy:

Almonds are known for their heart health benefits, and almond flour is no different. It’s high in monounsaturated fats, which are known to reduce heart disease risk factors.

6. High in Protein and Fiber:

Almond flour is a great source of protein and fiber, which can help keep you and your family feeling full and satisfied.

Incorporating almond flour into your baking is a simple and delicious way to make your recipes healthier. Whether you’re making pancakes for breakfast, muffins for a snack, or a birthday cake for a special celebration, almond flour is a versatile and nutritious ingredient that can help you meet your family’s dietary needs. So, next time you’re in the baking aisle, consider picking up a bag of almond flour.

Ground Flaxseeds: A Mom’s Secret Ingredient for Low Carb Baking

Ground flaxseeds, also known as flax meal, are a fantastic addition to low carb baking. Made from flaxseeds that have been ground into a fine powder, they’re a powerhouse of nutrition and offer a host of benefits. Here’s why every mom should consider adding ground flaxseeds to her baking repertoire.

1. Low in Carbs, High in Fiber:

Ground flaxseeds are low in carbs and high in fiber, making them an excellent choice for low-carb diets. The high fiber content also aids in digestion and helps keep everyone feeling full and satisfied.

2. Rich in Omega-3 Fatty Acids:

Flaxseeds are one of the richest plant sources of omega-3 fatty acids, which are essential for brain health. They’re a great way to boost the nutritional profile of your baked goods.

3. Easy to Incorporate:

Ground flaxseeds can be easily added to any recipe. They have a mild, nutty flavor that complements a wide range of baked goods, from breads and muffins to cookies and pancakes.

4. Gluten-Free:

If you or a family member is gluten intolerant, ground flaxseeds are a great alternative. They’re naturally gluten-free and can be used as a binding agent in place of eggs in many recipes.

5. High in Antioxidants:

Flaxseeds are packed with antioxidants, specifically lignans, which are known for their anti-inflammatory and antioxidant benefits. This makes them a great addition to a healthy diet.

6. Versatile:

Ground flaxseeds can be used as a flour substitute, a thickener in recipes, or even as an egg substitute for vegan baking. Their versatility makes them a handy ingredient to have in your pantry. Incorporating ground flaxseeds into your baking is a simple and tasty way to enhance the nutritional value of your recipes.

Whether you’re whipping up a batch of muffins for breakfast, baking a loaf of bread for lunch, or creating a delicious dessert, ground flaxseeds are a versatile and nutritious ingredient that can help you meet your family’s dietary needs.

I baked mine on a pizza stone. I also baked it with the parchment paper under the dough to prevent sticking. I use a knife to cut them into squares. You can have more fun and use cookie cutters if you like.

    • My daughter polished off what I had of my last batch last night, so I’ll be making them again. I was buying a lot of grain free type crackers for her at the store. Now, I’m saving money by making them myself. They would also work as a savory cracker with just a few changes and would be great for a spicy dip… yum!

    • The crackers on the outside get crunchier than the ones in the middle. You could probably make them all the crunchiest if you separated them out like cookies. Even the ones in the middle aren’t soft like cookies though, more like a cracker. Hope this helps!

    • Hi Nancy! I haven’t tried them with whole eggs before, so I’m honestly not sure how they would turn out. I know the eggs and the flaxseeds are what holds the crackers together. The yolk would add more protein too which would be good. You can try and let me know what you think of the texture.

  2. Your graham crackers will be featured tomorrow on Savoring Saturdays! Thanks for the recipe and congrats!
