Oh mama this is good. It’s light and has an incredible sweet crisp finish that reminds me of exactly of paleo Cinnamon Toast Crunch. It also makes the perfect sweet crackers for snacking – hence why we ate the entire batch in the first day. I knew that I had hit my goal when Mr. Bejelly told me they reminded him of cereal after his first bite.

Now the trick is to roll them fairly thin so they get crunchy – I’d try to stay at 1/4″ thick or less. Any thicker than this and it’s a soft graham cracker type consistency. They will get a little darker brown when baking but the taste only improves.

Do these need to be refrigerated?

You can refrigerate them but I will leave them on the counter for up to 5 days. They do tend to get soggy in the fridge.

I'm curious how you pre cut these? I'm making them and finding that with the syrup it's so sticky it doesn't really "cut" beforehand.

I tried serving this to 8 of my friends but the servings were to small! How did you calculate that this recipe was 8 servings? In other words, how much would each service be? 1 cup? 5oz? Etc.

Hi Hun, a serving is 1/2 cup. I will be say we always eat way more than this and one batch would feed 3 adults.
