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…

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….

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

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 thumb   Peanut Butter & Jam Graham Cracker Sandwiches

Whisk together.

Assemble the wet ingredients and the gelled up flax egg.

Add to a bowl.

Whisk.

Add wet to dry..

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

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

Form a ball.

IMG 8427 thumb   Peanut Butter & Jam Graham Cracker Sandwiches

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 thumb   Peanut Butter & Jam Graham Cracker Sandwiches

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.

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

IMG 8441 thumb   Peanut Butter & Jam Graham Cracker Sandwiches

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

IMG 8443 thumb   Peanut Butter & Jam Graham Cracker Sandwiches

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.

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!

Peanut Butter S’more anyone?

IMG 8458 2 thumb   Peanut Butter & Jam Graham Cracker Sandwiches

Or maybe PB + J?

IMG 8477 thumb   Peanut Butter & Jam Graham Cracker Sandwiches

They are pretty insane.

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.

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.

Angela (Oh She Glows) January 7, 2011

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…)

Ps I checked out my health food store today to get brown rice syrup and only saw regular rice syrup. do you think it’s a big difference in taste/nutr value/consistency?

Angela (Oh She Glows) January 7, 2011

im not sure, I have not seen/used reg rice syrup before!

“Peanut Butter S’more anyone?”—OH YES PLEASE!

These look awesome, Angela! I love graham crackers. Love.Them. But I dont buy them b/c they arent vegan or GF usually so I need to try making my own version. I remember your last post, I said I was going to make some..havent done that yet…but gosh, you have me wanting to!

And wow, the cookie cutter w/ Heart shapes. Valentines Day…Can’t believe that is coming up…already! Time flies!

Enjoy your weekend :)

Looks and sounds delicious! Graham crackers are a fav! I will definitely have to try :)

Megan (Braise The Roof) January 7, 2011

Sometimes your recipes are so obvious that they’re genius! Peanut butter IN the graham cracker? That would have saved me a lot of peanut butter application onto graham crackers when I had it for a snack every day in college!
