Gluten Free Graham Cracker Recipe
If you are thinking that all graham crackers are created equal, then we’re here to tell you that you need to try these homemade Gluten Free Graham Crackers and you’ll know they aren’t! Homemade always beats out store-bought, but often times homemade snack recipes can feel complicated. These graham crackers are the exception!

They are sweetened just right, and have a nuanced flavor thanks to the addition of flax seed and coconut sugar.
They would be a fun baking project to bake with the kids as well! And the resulting cracker can be eaten on its own, used in a dip or ground up and used as a graham cracker crust. What do you think, ready to make them?!
Tips on Making Gluten Free Graham Crackers
This dough is pretty easy to work with and roll out, but here are a few tips to make sure you are successful!
- Use a scale to measure out your baking flour to ensure accuracy!
- Make sure to blend the butter into the dough completely so that there are no visible pieces remaining. You can use cold butter or room temperature.
- Roll out to the correct thickness between 1/8″ – 1/16″. Too thin and they’ll burn and too thick and they’ll be chewy.
- Set a timer! Start checking on these starting at 15 minutes. Look for very light golden brown edges and completely dry looking crackers.
- Let them cool for a few minutes before breaking them apart.
- Let cool completely before storing. If they have any warmth to them when they are stored they could turn the crackers soft.
Recipes to Pair
While they are yummy to eat all on their own, these gluten-free crackers can be used in a few other ways as well. You can use them to dip into a sweet cookie dough dip, or paired with a sweet fruit salad. Add them to a charcuterie board for a lightly sweet component or grind them up and use as a graham cracker crust.
