Jump to Recipe

These delightful Homemade Cinnamon-Sugar Vegan Graham Crackers are made in one mixing bowl and the dough doesn’t need to spend any time in the fridge or the freezer. They smell amazing while they are baking. I love snacking on them right out of the oven.

Homemade Cinnamon-Sugar Vegan Graham Crackers are great for:

  • Making into crusts for pies, tarts, and bars
  • Dipping in Creamy Silken Chocolate Vegan Pudding
  • Snacking
  • Easy Oven S’mores (Instructions in recipe notes below)
  • Cutting into fun shapes
  • Making ice cream sandwiches (take 2 minutes off of the bake time)

If you are making the graham crackers for a crust, you might want to skip brushing them with Earth Balance and sprinkling with cinnamon sugar. Additionally, if you are crumbing them into a crust I wouldn’t worry much about cutting them into cute shapes.

Let’s Talk About Pre-cut Parchment Paper

I used to dread working with parchment paper. I never tore off the correct amount and then the sides would curl up on me. This pre-cut baking sheet sized parchment paper has changed all of that. I store them flat and pull out a sheet when I need it. They arrived with a handy vinyl zip lock storage pouch. It’s ridiculous how much easier pre-cut parchment is to work with.

Sil-mats are great too

I am also a big fan of these sil-mats, which also work well with this recipe. However, you do need to be careful not to damage the sil-mat when cutting the crackers. If you are using a coffee mug to cut your crackers into circles, the sil-mat should be fine.

Cinnamon & Sugar ratio for sprinkling

To make cinnamon sugar to sprinkle on top of crackers:  A ratio of 1 part cinnamon to 4 parts sugar is standard for an all-purpose cinnamon sugar blend. I mixed together 1 – 1 & 1/2 teaspoons cinnamon and 2 TBSPs sugar. It was a good amount to sprinkle on the crackers after brushing with melted Earth Balance. If you have coarse cane sugar, you may want to pulse it in a small food processor before adding cinnamon.

Make a well in the middle and pour in 1/4 cup melted Earth Balance, molasses, and vanilla.

Adding all wet ingredients except the plant-milk to the dry ingredients for the vegan graham crackers.

Give the liquid ingredients a quick whisk with a fork and then continue mixing until everything is well combined and crumbly.

Drizzle in the plant-milk and combine. Use your hands to knead the dough a few times until it holds together. Add an extra tablespoon of plant-milk if needed.

You should be able to form a pliable ball of dough. Divide into 2 balls of dough, it will be easier to work with this way.

Rolling out the Dough

Line a work surface with parchment. Place one ball of dough on the parchment and shape it into a rectangle using your hands. Flatten the rectangle a bit with the palms of your hand and sprinkle with flour.

Use a rolling pin to roll into a rectangle. The dough should be about 1/8 inch thick. If the edges look crumbly, that’s okay.

Cut the dough into crackers or shapes using a coffee cup or cookie cutters. Use a very thin flexible spatula to transfer the crackers to a parchment paper or sil-mat lined baking sheet.

Continue rolling out then next ball of dough and the dough scraps and cut into crackers until you don’t have any dough left to cut. You will need to move the cut crackers onto the lined baking sheet, to clear the workspace, in order to continue rolling out and cutting the crackers.

Once all crackers have been cut and transferred to the lined baking sheet(s), brush them with melted Earth Balance and sprinkle with cinnamon sugar.

Lightly poke with a fork to make little graham cracker holes.

Bake for about 12 – 14 minutes. They will harden and crisp up as they cool. Enjoy or let cool before storing in an air-tight container.

The Easy Oven S’mores are made with store-bought vegan marshmallows and vegan chocolate.

Dandies vegan marshmallows and Endangered Species Oat Milk + Dark Chocolate Bar.

When shopping for vegan chocolate, be sure to read labels. Cocoa butter is vegan and derived from the cocoa bean. The main things to look out for are milk, milk fat, and whey.

Vegan chocolate chips will work too. You can also make your own vegan marshmallows.

Making Vegan S’mores

Move the oven rack to one below the highest placement in the oven so that it is not right under the broiler. Turn on the broiler.

Line a baking sheet with parchment paper. Place one graham cracker on the baking sheet for each S’more you are making. Then place 4 pieces of vegan chocolate on each graham cracker and top each with two large vanilla vegan marshmallows. Try to place the marshmallows so they won’t roll around when you lift the baking sheet.

Place the baking sheet under the broiler and leave the oven door open a little so that you can watch the marshmallows. They will brown very quickly.

Remove from oven and place the second graham cracker on top of the marshmallows, pushing down on the graham cracker. Serve and enjoy!

  1. Would this be more Graham cracker like made with graham flower?
    TIA 🙂

    • Hi Lisa! They are graham crackers and thus very graham cracker-like. Graham flour is also whole wheat flour. Graham flour contains all three parts of the wheat berry — the germ, the endosperm, and the bran. The endosperm is ground finely into a traditional-looking flour, while the germ and bran are ground coarsely. Many recipes for graham crackers use whole wheat or AP flour. I have never made these with graham flour, but I’m guessing it would also be delicious. Thank you for your question, Lisa.

  2. Is there any way to make these oil free?
