Paleo Graham Crackers

Paleo Graham Crackers are gluten-free, and made with just 4 ingredients. All you need is almond flour, yacon syrup, arrowroot, and salt. I’m often asked, “are graham crackers gluten-free?” In general, the kind you buy at the store are not, however, these homemade Paleo Graham Crackers are both gluten-free and grain-free! They’re also super easy to make.

These Paleo Graham Crackers will satisfy your urge for a healthy gluten-free snack or dessert. They go very well with a cup of coffee. Of course in our house that would be a cup of homemade caffeine-free Dandelion Root Coffee with a splash of my delicious homemade Almond Milk.

  1. I used maple syrup instead of the yacon the recipe suggested. I mixed ingredients in a small food processor and it took a few minutes, maybe 3-5 minutes. I would stir down the sides from time to time while mixing. I think it took this long for the oils in the Honeyville almond flour to make the mixture moist enough to hold together. I poured all ingredients onto my Silpat, folded it in half, rolled dough between silpat, unrolled, used pizza cutter to cut into desired size, pricked with fork, baked 9 minutes. I don’t know if I can wait 1 hour for them to cool LOL Thanks so much for a wonderful recipe Elaina!

  2. I cooked these on a silpat, and for 5 min longer than suggested and they didn’t really get crunchy. They tasted good, but were so, so soft. Could it have been the silpat or just a bad oven? :-/

    • Kristin, sometimes on a humid day these types of treats don’t get a great crunch. If that happens, put them back in the oven for 10 minutes on the lowest setting to dry them out.

  3. Can you use honey instead of yacon syrup? I live in a small town and I doubt I can find it without ordering it online.

  4. I did it with raw honey and cinnamon/ coconut sugar mix to top it off. Also subst. Almond flour for sun flower meal. Amazing nutfree and grainfree

  5. Loved these! Made them with maple syrup instead of yacon syrup, plus 1 teaspoon pure vanilla extract. The end result reminded me of shortbread cookies!

    Instead of rolling between 2 sheets of parchment, I placed the “dough” on a silpat mat and then 1 sheet of parchment on top for rolling. It saves a little bit of money by using half as much parchment since a silpat mat works the same way. I did my scoring with a sharp plastic spatula (the one that came with my food processor for scraping it out) without pressing hard so that I did not cut into my siplat mat.

    I needed to cook these a tad longer, maybe 9ish minutes, likely because I rolled them a tad thicker so I didn’t have any too thin burnt edges.

    I offered these to my kids for breakfast since they are practically all almonds and minimal sweetener. They loved them and I loved that they started their day with a good amount of protein.
    Mom and kid approved recipe! Will be making often!

  6. What is and where do you get yacon syrup? Never heard of it.

    Do you ever have recipes that don’t use a food processor? I’ve had to pass up almost all your recipes b/c I do not have one. I have Fibro, RA, and Hashi’s, so my arm can’t beat things with a spoon in a bowl. So I am mostly out of luck with your recipes.

    Do keep us in mind, okay? Thanks so much.

    • My food processor is worthless, but my immersion blender is the bomb. I used it last night to make flaxseed, which is very reasonably priced at Aldi, into flax meal, which is expensive.
