Peanut Butter & Jam Graham Cracker Sandwiches

Happy Friday to you!

I just wanted to let you guys know that my spam checker is marking some comments randomly as ‘spam’ and I am not sure what is going on. I have approved several spam comments from the past few days and I will keep a close eye on it. I’m sorry if that was happening to you and you didn’t know why! I will monitor the situation and report to the computer authorities if necessary (aka Eric).

Today, we talk homemade graham crackers. For the second time.

I’ve been quite smitten with homemade graham crackers ever since I fell in love with them back in December after adapting a recipe from Ashley.

Last week, I was feeling frisky and I made a PB + J graham cracker sandwich using two homemade graham crackers, raspberry jam, and peanut butter.

I think this photo speaks for itself…

IMG_8480

I just loved how the peanut butter, jam, and graham flavours all went together and I was instantly hooked!

And then I started to imagine how delicious a peanut butter graham cracker would be….

IMG_8409

Three trials later, I am happy to share my favourite version with you.

IMG_8436

IMG_8391

These graham crackers are quite fun to make. First you mix the modified flax egg and then set aside.

Now, grab those dry ingredients…

IMG_8395

IMG_8396

Whisk together.

IMG_8398

Assemble the wet ingredients and the gelled up flax egg.

IMG_8404

Add to a bowl.

IMG_8412

Whisk.

IMG_8418

Add wet to dry..

IMG_8423

It will be very thick and you will have to get in there with your hands to mix in the ingredients fully.

IMG_8424

Squeeze the dough in your hands until most of the flour is mixed in.

IMG_8426

Form a ball.

IMG_8427

Break the ball in half and then roll out on a floured surface. I used my new Silpat mat that I got at Christmas and it was a great non-stick surface for rolling dough!

IMG_8432

The only thing I do not like about the dough is that it cracks a bit (this was true for all trials that I did), so try not to roll it too thin or it will fall apart.

Use cookie cutters if preferred.

IMG_8438

IMG_8439

You can even make cute little hearts for Valentine’s Day!

IMG_8441

Or maybe you’d rather stab a square with a fork…

IMG_8443

Place in the oven for 15-18 minutes at 350F. Rotate half way through. The amount of time you have to bake will depend on how thick they are. The crackers should be slightly firm when coming out of the oven.

IMG_8444

Allow to cool for about 30 minutes. The graham crackers will really crisp up during this time.

The result is a delicious homemade graham cracker with a hint of peanut butter flavour!

IMG_8448

Peanut Butter S’more anyone?

IMG_8458-2

Or maybe PB + J?

IMG_8477

IMG_8478

They are pretty insane.

IMG_8464-2

I think I slightly prefer this version over the last ones I made. This version has less of a molasses flavour to allow the peanut butter flavour to come through and it just seems to work really well.

IMG_8469-2

Have a great start to your weekend!

What do you use for marshmallows in the s’mores? I’ve had a hard time finding vegan (or even vegetarian!) ones.

I use Dandie’s Brand..they taste just like reg marshmallows and cook similar too.

I love the heart-shaped cookie cutters :) I tried the chocolate graham cracker recipe over Christmas- I found that it really matters how long they stay in the oven. I took the first batch out too early and the the texture was off- more chewy than crispy but when I kept them in a litttttle longer than I thought necessary, they were perfection. Trial and error can be fun! (Sometimes…)

This is all so very Martha Stewart of you! (I LOVE her style, by the way). But I’ve got a few probing questions for you. (1) How do you have the time to do all of this? Do you “have a day job”? and even more importantly (2) how do you keep such goodies around your home without overpartaking in them, if you know what I mean . . .

Have any idea what I can use in replacement for half and half? I used soy creamer but thought maybe you might have some other suggestions. I made a cauliflower soup that called for half and half.

Thanks for your help.

Oh my goodness. I just made these. Yup addicting. I only had 1 cup of whole wheat flour left so I used 1/2 cup of rye flour and it was still great ( i do love rye flour though).
Thanks for the inspiration. Oh my daughter thinks they are great too. But I think she is just more excited that they were vegan so she could eat the batter!

I’ve realized that usually seek out a “best” version of a recipe I’m trying to make – I make it then a few weeks later I check to see if you or mama pea have a vegan version. :-) Its fun to see the difference in textures and final products! I.E. Now I MUST make vegan graham since I made regular a few weeks back!

Sarah Dean January 26, 2011 at 7:33 pm

Hey Angela!
I was hoping you may have a suggestion: I made these this evening with an egg instead of the flax mixture because my grinder(to grind the flax) was broken. They turned out great, but I ended up having ot form them into little balls and flatten them on the cookie sheet because they were incredibly sticky-is this because of the egg maybe? Any suggestions to help this-or should I just add more flour?
