Paleo Graham Crackers - Only 5-ingredient make these clean crackers an easy delicious option! Gluten-free and dairy-free, these are a fabulous snack or lunchbox option and are awesome for s'mores! Budget friendly and only takes 10 minutes to make.

I am thrilled to share these with you – 5 ingredients, take 10 minutes to mix up and are such a kid-friendly win! These are fabulous in lunch boxes, for a more nutrient-dense after school snack, or for making smores around the campfire. I love that the ingredients are not only simple, but that a batch of 24 crackers can be sweetened with only 2 tablespoons maple syrup. All five of my boys give these a hearty two thumbs up!

Servings 24 crackers


  • 2 cups fine or finely sifted almond flour*
  • 1 teaspoon baking powder
  • 1 pinch salt
  • 1 egg
  • 2 tablespoons melted coconut oil
  • 2 tablespoons maple syrup or honey

Optional toppings:

  • 1 teaspoon cinnamon
  • 2 tablespoons coconut sugar


  • Preheat oven to 325.
  • Combine almond flour, baking powder, and salt in a medium mixing bowl. Add oil, syrup and egg and stir until well combined and forms a dough.
  • Place mixed dough on a sheet of parchment paper. Place another sheet of parchment paper on top of the dough and roll out flat with a rolling pin or large flat sided glass. We enjoy these the thickness of graham crackers (about an 1/8 of an inch). Ideally it is a uniform thickness throughout, so it will cook at an even rate.
  • Remove and discard the top sheet of parchment. If desired, combine cinnamon and sugar and sprinkle on top, pressing it down slightly into the dough (we enjoy it both with or without the cinnamon sugar topping). Pierce all over with a fork to help even baking, you can do this in an organized pattern or just scattered throughout. Use a knife or pizza cutter to cut into squares.
  • Bake at 325 for 22-25 minutes until lightly browned. We like these best crunchy, but they are still enjoyable soft, and the longer you bake them, the crunchier they will be. Start checking on them at around 18 minutes, as the edges might be done then. The outer edges often cook first, so I will take them out of the oven, cut those edges off into crackers and put them on the counter to cool, then put the rest of the dough that is not browned or crunchy yet back in the oven. Repeat as needed.
  • Keep in a sealed container at room temperature for 7-10 days. Good for 2-3 months in the freezer.


You can also stir the 1 teaspoon cinnamon right into the dough with the other dry ingredients or top with just the coconut sugar and not the cinnamon.
*I get my finely sifted almond flour from Sam's Club (Blue Diamond Finely Sifted), I've also seen Bob Red Mill's super fine almond flour at Winco and Walmart. The recipe will still work with a more coarse almond flour, they just won't have as great of texture.

    I made mine into scones… they were amazing. The second batch i made with Cassava flour… just as good.

    • That’s helpful to know you successfully made them with cassava flour, thank you! Did you use an equal amount? Thanks for the comment and review!

  2. I really can’t stand anything coconutty at all. What would you substitute for the coconut oil and coconut sugar? Thanks for any tips.

    • You can use extra-light tasting olive oil and maple sugar or granulated monk fruit sugar instead. Enjoy!

  3. Hi, do you spread the square dough out on the cookie sheet? Or leave them then brake them apart after they bake?

    • Hi! I roll out the dough flat on the parchment and then cut it before cooking. Hope that helps!

    Made these on repeat during quarantine! My picky husband would request them. So yummy and very easy to make with ingredients I already had on hand.

    Made these for the 1st time today, my 2 year old couldn’t wait for them to come out of the oven and started eating the store bought graham crackers. As soon as he had a bite of these, he handed me his store bought cracker because he only wanted these. Delicious!

    These are amazing! My toddler loved them and my husband with an aversion to healthy snacks! I made with honey the first time and Maple syrup the second. Both were delicious.

    • So thrilled these were a win with your family. Thank you!

  9. 5 stars
    Wow these are amazing! The kids loved them and they were really filling- much more than a regular cracker. I mixed the cinnamon directly into the dough and kept them a little softer (19 ish min cook time). Will be making again!

    • Woot woot for a kid-win! Thrilled these were an easy new favorite!
