I Want S’More!

From where I’m sitting, I can see a budding elm tree and white iris blooming in the back yard. These signs of spring remind me that it’s time to plan a trip to the river for some floating, fishing, camping, and s’mores!










Of course, in my family we don’t need camping as a reason to eat s’mores. We’ve been known to make them in the oven…at Christmas…when it’s snowing. Because 4 of us can’t tolerate gluten, we all use gluten-free Grammy Crackers to encase that delicious chocolaty meltiness.










Now that camping weather is approaching, we invite you to join us in savoring this yummy treat. Before you head out to the campground, stir up a batch of Cooking2Thrive® Grammy Crackers, and eat s’mores to your heart’s content. Here’s the recipe:

Grammy Crackers

Makes 8 dozen

2 1/2 cups sweet white sorghum flour

1/2 cups arrowroot flour

1/2 cup sweet potato flour

1/2 cup rice bran

1/3 cup light brown sugar

1/2 tsp baking soda

1 tsp cinnamon

1 tsp salt

1/4 cup butter, melted

1/4 cup extra virgin olive oil

1/4 cup honey

1/2 cup 2% milk

1/2 cup club soda

1 egg white

1 tbsp milk

1 tbsp sugar

Preheat oven to 385º.

In large bowl, combine flours, rice bran, brown sugar, baking soda, cinnamon, and salt. Add melted butter and olive oil. Mix with spoon or your hands until well distributed. Add honey, milk, club soda, and egg white. Stir until a stiff dough forms.  

Place 1/8 of the dough between 2 sheets of parchment paper and roll until 1/16 inch thick. Remove top sheet of parchment. Cut into desired shapes and leave in place.  Brush tops with milk and sprinkle with sugar. Place parchment on cookie sheet.  

Bake at 385º for 10-12 minutes until lightly browned. Rotate pan every 4 minutes for more even browning. Remove parchment to rack to cool. Repeat process with the rest of the dough.  

Once the crackers are cool, you can pack them up in your favorite airtight plastic container and head out while looking forward to a treat when the campfire’s ready. Have fun!
