How is the texture of the gluten-free graham crackers?

To be honest I have never baked graham crackers before I switched to baking gluten-free. I had my previous attempts at making gluten free cookies, cornbread and banana bread. I do find baked goods using all-purpose gluten-free flour tend to yield a moist gummy-ish result.

Hesitant but desperate for a graham cracker recipe, before a friend coming over for chat around our fire pit in the backyard, I gave Morgan’s original gluten free vegan recipe a try. Let me tell you, it was the BEST graham cracker I ever had!

To achieve the nice buttery crunchy result, make sure to:

  • Use a dairy-free butter substitute that is solid in room temperature (I used coconut oil)
  • Roll your cracker dough to an even thickness around 1/8 inch (don’t worry if that seems too thin, it will rise during baking!)
  • Poke the holes before baking so steam can escape from the dough
  • Let your crackers cool partially before picking them up to transfer to cooling rack, then let cool completely before indulging!

How are these green tea graham crackers different from the original?

Traditionally, people use cinnamon and brown sugar for the signature oat-y graham cracker flavor. For an Asian twist here, instead, I flavored and sweetened this dough with sweetened green tea powder!

Same as the one I used in my green tea mochi with adzuki bean filling recipe, we got this package of green tea powder home from our Japan honeymoon. It adds a nice color and depth of flavor to the classic treat!

You can of course use it to make the old-school s’mores. Simply stack them with dairy-free dark chocolate and fire pit or oven toasted marshmallows.

For a unique Asian twist, try topping them with grilled mochi and adzuki bean paste! You can find ready-made adzuki bean paste online or in Asian grocery stores. For a more economical version with more control on sweetness and choice of sweetener, check out my slowcooker adzuki bean paste recipe!
