My most recent discovery about myself has to do with the fact that most of what I remember about a favorite childhood movie or TV show is centered around someone eating something.
- My favorite part of Caspar (with THE Christina Ricci) is when the ghosts eat breakfast. I thought whatever they were eating looked pretty tasty.
- The only good part of the intro for One Saturday Morning was the cereal bowl.
- I liked the show The Weekenders because every Friday they went out for pizza.
- When the little girl in Smart House orders a smoothie from Pat, the robot inside the house. I was jealous.
- Crabby patties? I can't even. Crabby patties were all I ever wanted.
It goes on. I'm not ashamed. In fact, I think my knowledge regarding those things is pretty impressive.
Anyway, I made you some graham crackers. They're spicy and cozy. It's a good thing.
Vegan Pumpkin Spice Graham Crackers (adapted from this recipe by edible perspective)
1.5 cups whole wheat (or all-purpose) flour
1/2 tsp baking soda
1/8 tsp nutmeg
1/8 tsp cloves
1/4 tsp ginger
2 tsp cinnamon
1/2 tsp salt
1 Tbs pumpkin puree (or unsweetened applesauce)
3 Tbs molasses
3 Tbs maple syrup (or any other sweetener)
1 tsp vanilla
3 Tbs non-dairy milk
Preheat oven to 350 degrees.
Whisk together all dry ingredients. Make a well in the center and add pumpkin, molasses, maple syrup, and vanilla. Mix until combined. Add in milk and mix until a soft dough forms (you might need to use your hands).
Transfer dough to a floured surface and roll into a rectangle about 1/8" thick. (I pressed mine into a small jelly roll pan to form a uniform rectangle. I also don't own a rolling pin) Cut dough into 12 crackers. Gently score crackers down the middle (like a real graham cracker!) and using a fork, poke holes.
Transfer crackers to a prepared baking sheet and bake for 14 minutes.
