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 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.
