What can You Use Instead of Graham Crackers? We don't have Graham Crackers in New Zealand. What is similar or can you tell me more about Graham Crackers, what are they like? Are they Salted? What is the texture? Will any Water Crackers be ok?

Graham Cracker Substitutes
by: Clarissa the Mom Chef

Hi Rachel!

Graham crackers are wonderful crackers that most American kids grow up eating. They're great for crushing up and adding butter to make pie crusts.

Graham crackers are made with whole wheat flour and have a mild sweet molasses flavor. They are firm crackers, not flaky or crumbly, and are more like thin cookies than crackers.

Saltines or water crackers will not be sweet enough to use as a substitute. Try these Graham cracker substitutes: digestive biscuits, arrowroot biscuits, vanilla wafers, or ginger snaps.
