Browsing through the internet can bring you to some pretty neat finds. The other day I was looking for birthday party ideas and I came across joyfulabode.com. There were all kinds of cool ideas on her blog but the one I really liked the most was this grain free gluten free graham cracker idea. This made me think, I wonder how many other people are sharing ideas like this on internet. So I began really digging in. There are SO many ideas for grain-free and gluten-free foods. It is truly amazing. In an attempt to share of the “amazing-ness” this blog post is a small compilation of grain free recipes and resources that share all kinds of recipes and information that will be very useful for those who want (or already are) eating grain free. Even if you don’t eat completely grain free you might really enjoy cutting back a bit on your grains and still enjoying these meals/snacks.
I have copied her recipe below but I made a substitution from sugar to agave sugar. I have also included a list of links to many useful resources for grain free recipes.
Preheat oven to 350f.
- 1 3/4 cup coconut flour
- 1/2 cup almond flour
- 1/2 tsp salt
- 2 tsp baking powder
- 2 tsp cinnamon
In a different bowl/mixer CREAM together:
- 3/4 cup room temp butter
- 1/8 cup agave
- 1/4 cup raw honey
- 1 tbsp vanilla extract
- 3 eggs
Then add the dry ingredients to the wet ones and combine until a dough forms.
Make dough into two balls and place each one on a parchment-lined cookie sheet. Put waxed paper on top, roll the dough out thinly, and remove the waxed paper. Cut into crackers with a pizza cutter and make little holes with a fork .
Bake 10 minutes, then remove and cool. I just lifted the whole piece of parchment off and placed it on the counter top to cool, but if you want, you can put your crackers on cooling racks.
