12 Aug / Wheat-Free Graham Crackers??
I hate camping.
Well, maybe I don’t hate it, since I haven’t actually been since I was 12, but I know I didn’t like it much. I mean, what’s to like? No bathing, no electricity and sleeping on the ground. Yay, sounds like fun! 🙂
The only great thing is, I get a new opportunity to make my wheat-free, dairy-free and low sugar diet work for me…which is a challenge, so I’m definitely game.
At the Cedar Hills New Seasons Market, I found a mix for Honey Grahamless Crackers, courtesy of Laurel’s Sweet Treats – made in Tigard, Ore. I plan to make them this week to take camping, where I’ll be eating s’mores! OK, so there will be marshmallows which is technically 150% sugar, but I’ll be using organic dark chocolate and wheat-free graham crackers (this is my rationale, please don’t spoil it), so I figure I’m not going to totally ruin my stomach.
The recipe does call for shortening (ick!), but I did find Spectrum Naturals Organic Vegetable Shortening with no trans fats at the Fred Meyer Nutrition section. It was almost $7, but if it works, then I’m a happy girl. I’ll keep you posted and let you know how it all turns out…
Got any other good graham cracker (WF) ideas for me or know of a good substitute for shortening (that doesn’t involve dairy or wheat)? If so, tell us about it!
