Graham Crackers

A few years ago we started making homemade graham crackers, and I loved them. Fresh out of the oven is always so much better than out of a box. So after a long time of not having them, I decided to tackle the task of revising them. Guess what? Besides being delicious, buttery, and brown sugar flavored, they solved my cheesecake crust dilemma. Crushed grahams are usually what makes a cheesecake crust, so this works perfectly.

I love adding a little cocoa powder to the basic recipe which makes a crunchy, chocolate crust. Substituting black cocoa for regular cocoa powder makes an delicious Oreo crust which is what I used for this Kahlua Cheesecake.

Print
Ingredients
  1. 1/2 cup Coconut Flour
  2. 1/2 cup Flax Meal
  3. 1/2 tsp. Salt
  4. 1/2 tsp. Baking Soda
  5. 1 tsp. Cinnamon
  6. 3/4 tsp. Stevia
  7. 1 tsp. Blackstrap Molasses
  8. 2/3 cup Butter, melted
  9. 1 Egg
Chocolate
  1. 1/2 cup Cocoa Powder
Instructions
  1. 1. Mix all the dry ingredients together.
  2. 2. Add in all the wet and mix well.
  3. 3. If you're doing the chocolate option, just substitute the cocoa powder for the flax meal.
  4. 4. If you're making crackers: dump the dough onto a cookie sheet, cover with plastic wrap, roll out to an 1/8 in. thick, then score.
  5. 5. If you're making a cheesecake crust: press the dough out into your cheesecake pan, pushing the dough up the sides, almost to the top. I wet my hands (before and during) to keep the dough from sticking to them.
  6. 6. Bake at 350°F for 10 min. Depending how long you bake your cheesecake you might want to bake the crust for a little less time, so it doesn't get too dark.
Yield
  1. 15 Crackers or 1 Cheesecake Crust
