Graham Crackers

1/2 cup vanilla whey (Jay sugar)
3/4 cup almond flour (doesn't need to be blanched, but helps:)
1/4 teaspoon baking soda
1/4 teaspoon iodized sea salt
1/4 cup butter or coconut oil
1 tsp cinnamon
2 teaspoons Truvia (or Yacon syrup)
2 TBS vanilla almond milk (just enough to hold dough together)

Preheat the oven to 400 degrees F (200 degrees C). In a medium bowl, stir together the whey, almond flour, baking soda and salt. Cut in the butter using a pastry blender or your fingers until the butter lumps are smaller than peas. Stir in the almond milk and sweetener to form a stiff dough. On parchment paper (lightly sprayed with olive oil spray), roll the dough out to 1/8 inch in thickness. Cut into squares and "score" with a fork (to look like graham crackers). Place squares 1 inch apart onto cookie sheets. Bake for 5 to 7 minutes in the preheated oven, until edges are lightly browned. Remove from cookie sheets to cool on wire racks.

Enjoy with a glass of unsweetened vanilla almond milk: 40 calories, 0 sugar (comparred to skim milk: 90 calories, 12g sugar)

Nutritional Info for the WHOLE Batch (using Truvia): 995 calories, 19 carbs, 9 fiber
