There are certain foods that remind me of my childhood. Grandma’s chocolate chip walnut cookies, peanut butter and banana sandwiches and cinnamon sugar graham crackers. They just bring back memories of being little and not having a care in the world.
I’ve recreated one of my childhood favorite snacks with these gluten free vegan cinnamon sugar graham crackers. A light, crispy graham cracker, topped with a sprinkling of cinnamon sugar goodness. The texture is perfect, the flavor is spot on and they are just as sweet as I remember them. I’ve been eating these graham crackers with my coffee just about every morning (hoarding them from my kids), but they’re also pretty tasty with a little smear of creamy peanut butter. I know, actually I’m certain, these would make fabulous s’mores too!
What are some of your favorite childhood snacks? A fun treat that brings back memories? Recreating recipes we know and love is something that brings me great joy. Comment below with a recipe you’re just dying to enjoy again!
