Quick and easy grain-free, gluten-free, egg-free, soy-free homemade TEDDY GRAHAMS!


We are so excited to share this recipe for homemade teddy grahams that we have been working on for you.

We had written down this recipe idea when we were going through our homemade childhood cereal craze from cinnamon toast crunch to cocoa puffs to vanilla puffs to cookie crisp. We both loved teddy grahams as kids, but now we upgraded that childhood classic to be filled with healthy satisfying ingredients.


For those moments in life when you need a reminder of what being a kid again feels like.

Madison was looking at us like we were crazy because we were jumping for joy in the kitchen after we sampled a few. Saying to each other, “we did it!!”

Every time we took a bite of one of these deliciously tasty and crunchy teddy grahams it brought back memories of our childhood. We remembered how excited we felt when it was lunch time at school because we knew we had teddy grahams inside our lunchbox.  Can’t wait for Madison to grow up with our homemade version of teddy grahams. A more mom-approved ingredient list!

These teddy grahams are so easy to make.

You will have a yummy and healthy snack in 13 minutes for your kids to enjoy. Or for yourself.

Go ahead and enjoy some sitting down watching your favorite tv show. Like Full House or Saved by the Bell. Oh boy! Some classics right there??

You deserve a little you time with a bowl of homemade teddy grahams to snack on.

We won’t lie we ate the whole batch.

We wanted to keep this grain-free and AIP friendly so we used tigernut flour as our main flour in this recipe. It worked perfectly. We absolutely love that flour.
