Graham CrackersMy #1 favorite thing about blogging is sharing amazing recipes with you! These Graham crackers are so easy and fun to make! You can cut it with any shape you’d like or cut it into graham cracker shapes. These cute heart shaped ones would be a perfect snack for Valentine’s day! This would be great with chocolate fondue.

Graham Crackers My cute minions were my assistants making the graham crackers. They loved cutting out the shapes. Asher was in charge of the heart shape and Levi the Mickey Mouse. Once they were ready to eat they each only wanted to eat the shape they had cut out! haha They loved the graham crackers so much. We all did! I just made half of the recipe and the next day they were already gone! So I made them again and took more pictures so I could blog about it for you all!

Graham CrackersI loved how easy these were to make!  All you do is mix up the ingredients, roll out the dough, cut it out and bake it! I love that these are somewhat healthy too. It has wheat flour and you can add some wheat germ or flax seed.


Graham Crackers You can even make cute little s’mores!

Graham CrackersMy boys and I had so much fun making these little graham crackers. I think next time we will make letters to spell their names out and maybe numbers too! The possibilities are endless.

Graham Crackers
 
Author:
Ingredients
  • 1 cup whole wheat flour
  • 1½ cups all purpose flour
  • ½ cup dark brown sugar, packed
  • ½ teaspoon salt
  • 1 teaspoon cinnamon
  • 1 teaspoon baking soda
  • ½ cup butter, chilled & cubed
  • ¼ cup honey
  • ¼ cup water
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla
  • optional: 1 tablespoon wheat germ or flax seed
Instructions
  1. Preheat oven to 350 degrees.
  2. In a food processor or mixer combine the first 6 ingredients. (If using wheat germ or flax seed add here.)
  3. Add cubed and chilled butter to the mix and pulse/mix until it resembles coarse meal.
  4. Add honey, water and vanilla and continue to mix until it all combines.
  5. Remove and shape the dough into a flat disk and place between two pieces of wax or parchment paper. (I found it easier to roll the dough w/o a sheet on top of the dough.)
  6. Roll dough out until ¼ inch thick. Cut into crackers or shapes. Combine the dough scraps and roll out again to cut more shapes.
  7. Place cookies on a Silpat or parchment lined baking sheet and bake for 15 minutes.
  8. Cool and serve.
Notes
To Freeze: After step 6, place the cut out cookie shapes on a baking sheet and freeze for 20 minutes. Remove, place in a Ziploc bag, label and freeze for up to 4 months. When ready to bake, follow steps 7-8, adding an additional 1-2 minutes baking time.

    Just curious, why didn’t you use any graham flour? I know these will be delicious, but isn’t graham flour what gives them the flavor?

    • says

      Great question! The main reason I didn’t use it is because it is hard to find and I focus on recipes that use ordinary, easy to find ingredients. As I searched for graham cracker recipes I noticed most don’t call for graham flour. In my research I found that graham flour is very similar to whole wheat flour, which is used in this recipe. It is just slightly courser. The honey, cinnamon and dark brown sugar (which has more molasses than light brown sugar) gives these cookies a fantastic graham flavor! I thought the flavor was perfect in theses cookies and prefer them over store-bought.

    Hi Suzanne- I am sorry your son can’t have honey! I bet that’s hard sometimes. Here are a few options for you: 3 T. maple syrup + 2 T. white sugar, 3 T. light or dark corn syrup + 2 T. white sugar or 3 T. molasses + 2 T. white sugar. I would suggest using the molasses + white sugar in this recipe. I hope that works for you! Let me know how it goes. I bet it will work great!

    I made 2 batches of these cookies today. I have a preschooler who loves to spell, so I did all letters. He was so excited!!! Everyone in the house loves them.
    I altered the recipe a little with the second batch. I added more honey and another 1/2 tsp of cinnamon. They turned out really good. My family likes more cinnamon.
    Great easy recipe. Dough is easy to handle. Works great.

      Thanks so much for letting me know you loved it Amy! I love honey and cinnamon too. I’ll have to try adding a little more next time! I’m also going to cut letters out of it next time for my little guy!

    Have you tried using applesauce in place of the butter? Hoping to lighten them up but they do look great as-is!!

    • says

      I haven’t tried it but it could work! I honestly don’t know though. If you try it just start with 1/4 cup of applesauce and see if that’s enough for the dough to come together. I might just try this soon, I will let you know how it goes!

    Are they hard or on the softer side? I love homemade and I’m looking for snacks for my one year old.

  6. Sarah says

    The crackers are great and the dough is so good! I cut them into about 1×2 in rectangles so my almost 11 month old can hold them easily. Then I poked dots into them with a chopstick for looks.
    Next time I’ll bake them 30 seconds or a minute less because the edges could be a little softer for my 5 toothed baby

    • says

      I’m so glad you liked it! That’s a great idea to make these rectangle for your little one. I would bake these for 2 minutes less to get a softer cracker. I’ve done it before and it’s great!

  7. Kay says

    I made these tonight, I used 1/2 earth balance and 1/2 olive oil and added about 1/4 cup more water. They turned out really well. Everyone loved them! Next time I will make a larger batch to have them left over for later.

  8. Bethany says

    I have just started cooking all of the foods my toddler eats and was wondering if you can use all wheat flour or why do you use the combination of both? Looking forward to trying these as they look great! Thanks!

    • says

      I’m not exactly sure but using a combination of both flours lightens it up a bit. Whole wheat flour tends to be a bit heavier/denser. You can try it with all whole-wheat flour. It probably would work out great. You could even use all white whole wheat flour. If you try a new combination or all whole-wheat let me know how it turns out!
