  • 1/2 cup all-purpose flour (1.25 mg)
  • 1 3/4 cups whole-wheat graham flour* (10.5 mg)
  • 1/2 cup sugar (trace)
  • 2 teaspoons Ener-G baking powder (9 mg)
  • 1 teaspoon Ener-G baking soda (trace)
  • 1/4 teaspoon ground cinnamon (.149 mg)
  • 2 tablespoons cold trans-fat free Crisco¹ (trace)
  • 5 tablespoons extra virgin olive (trace)
  • 2 tablespoons honey (1.68 mg)
  • 2 tablespoons Grandma's or B'rer Rabbit molasses (14 mg)
  • 1 tablespoon light corn syrup (24 mg)
  • 5 tablespoons filtered or bottled cold water** (trace)
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla extract (.378 mg) A day before you want to make this cheesecake, prepare the nonfat yogurt by draining it as described in our Yo Cheese recipe.

    In a food processor, mix together the flours, sugar, baking powder, baking soda, and cinnamon. Add the cold butter and process until the mixture resembles coarse meal, about 30 seconds or so. Add the honey, molasses, water, and vanilla. Mix until the batter starts to come together in a ball, another 30 seconds. Scrape dough out of the mixer.

    Between 2 sheets of waxed or parchment paper, roll the dough to about 1/8-inch thick. Chill for at least 45 minutes to an hour, or until firm.

    Preheat oven to 350° F.

    With a sharp knife or pizza cutter (preferred), cut into 24 3-inch squares or 36 2". Arrange the crackers on parchment lined baking sheets. (You can put 12 on each sheet, separated about an inch or more from each other. With a toothpick or larger skewer prick several holes in each cracker.

    Bake for 12 to 17 minutes, or until lightly browned at the edges.

    Remove from the oven and let cool on the pan for about five minutes. Remove to cooling rack.

    ¹ May use unsalted butter instead. If using butter, vegetarian status changes to Lacto Vegetarian.
    *Check with Where To Buy or with Bob's Red Mill

    **Might need a tablespoon more. Don't let batter get sticky, but just wet enough to spread with a rolling pin.
