Some of my fondest warm weather memories include s’mores. And I don’t even require s’mores to be consumed exclusively in warm weather. I’m more of a year-round kinda s’mores gal. This is also how I feel about ice cream, btw. Ice cream in the winter and in the summer over here!
But back to this recipe, I’ve wanted to try my hand at homemade graham crackers for a while now so when I contacted about the opportunity to create a sponsored recipe using Bob’s Red Mill flour I knew this was my chance. Let’s just say, three batches and 4 hours later, I finally had a recipe I could share with you. It was not an easy task to test and perfect the recipe, but these are true winners. They’re pretty much all Daniel and I have been eating since.
These crackers are made with Bob’s Red Mill flour and I want to share a little bit about the brand with you. Bob’s Red Mill is an employee owned company which means that all of the employees (after achieving a determined tenure) have stock in the company. How amazing is that?! Not only is this a huge financial benefit to the employees, but it also leads to a more engaged and dedicated workforce. The company has been developing tons of new products lately and is a true leader in the natural and premium flour industry. The Unbleached White Flour I used for these crackers has no additives and creates great structure. In fact, these crackers are sturdier than the store-bought kind which makes them great for s’mores sandwiches or dipping into a jar of almond butter 🙂
The crackers you see in these photos are chewy on the inside and crispy on the outside. I split the dough and rolled the second half a little thinner and the second set of crackers are crispy throughout like a traditional graham cracker. I liked them both ways so it just depends on what style cookie you prefer. And dipping the s’mores sandwiches in chocolate is a true game-changer. The sprinkles are for that spring touch (and I may or may not have asked Daniel to pick out the other colors from a package of rainbow sprinkles…he loves me).
I hope you make these graham crackers or s’mores sandwiches soon!
- 3 cups Bob's Red Mill Organic Unbleached White Flour
- 1/2 cup brown sugar, loosely packed
- 2 teaspoons cinnamon
- 1/2 teaspoon baking soda
- 1/4 teaspoon baking powder
- 1/4 teaspoon salt
- 3/4 cup unsweetened almond milk, room temperature if possible
- 1/2 cup coconut oil, melted
- 3 tablespoons honey
- 2 and 1/2 tablespoons dark molasses
- 1 teaspoon vanilla extract
- marshmallows (I used vegan marshmallows)
- 1/2 cup semi-sweet chocolate chips
- Preheat the oven to 350 degrees F.
- Whisk the dry ingredients together in a large bowl. Combine the almond milk, coconut oil, molasses, honey and vanilla extract in a small bowl. Add the wet ingredients to the dry and mix until combined.
- Place the dough on a well floured surface (or between two pieces of parchment paper or silicone mats) and roll with a rolling pin until the dough is thin and even. If you want your graham crackers to be soft like a cookie, keep them about 1/4 inch. If you like them crispy, try to roll them a little thinner.
- Cut the dough with a sharp knife or pizza cutter into even squares and place on a greased or lined cookie sheet. The crackers can be pretty close to each other since they won't spread much.
- Using a fork, poke two sets of marks in the top of each cracker.
- Bake for 20 minutes or until golden brown on the edges. Remove from the oven and let cool completely.
- Melt your chocolate chips in a bowl on 30 second intervals in the microwave. Mix until completely melted.
- For S'mores: Roast marshmallows over a flame (careful not to burn yourself) and smash them between two graham crackers. Dip one edge of the sandwich in melted chocolate and add sprinkles.
- You can also enjoy the graham crackers as is or dipped in chocolate without the marshmallow.
- Store in an airtight container at room temperature.
