Dark Chocolate Raisin Graham Cracker Bread

~ Dark Chocolate Raisin Graham Cracker Bread ~

One of my favorite desserts of the summer, hands down, is THE s’more.  The combination of crunchy graham crackers, melty chocolate, and gooey marshmallows ……… is simply one of the best combos out there.  When I found a recipe for a graham cracker bread I knew I had to try it.  So as my last recipe before departing for France tomorrow I give you:  dark chocolate raisin graham cracker bread.

Marshmallows could have been added for a more authentic s’more treat but I enjoyed the subtle taste of raisins and dark chocolate.  This bread is sweetened with only applesauce and honey so it isn’t over the top on the sweetness scale.

Dark Chocolate Raisin Graham Cracker Bread
adapted from Sweet & Natural
1 cup flour of choice
1 tsp cinnamon
1 tsp baking soda
1/2 tsp salt
1/4 cup unsweetened applesauce
1 cup graham cracker crumbs [ground crackers of choice in food processor for crumbs]
1 flax egg [1 tbsp ground flax seed mixed with 3 tbsp water]
1/3 cup honey
1 cup unsweetened almond milk
1 cup dark chocolate chips  [can use vegan or carob chips as well]
1/4-1/2 cup raisins
Mix flour, cinnamon, baking soda, and salt together then set aside.  In a large bowl mix applesauce and graham cracker crumbs until well combined.  Add flax egg and mix until well combined.  Mix in honey until well combined.  Alternatively mix in flour mixture and almond milk, then finish with mixing in the chocolate and raisins.  Pour into a sprayed loaf pan [mine was 9×5] and bake at 350*F for about 50 minutes.

This bread was so moist and had just the right amount of sweetness.  Absolutely delicious 😉
