homemade graham crackers

Recently, my dear friend Erin posted a recipe on her Lovesome site that I just had to share! These homemade graham crackers are delicious, simple, and healthy, so you can feel great about feeding them to your little ones!


Homemade Graham Crackers
ingredients:

2 cups whole wheat flour
1 tsp cinnamon
1/2 tsp baking powder
1/2 tsp baking soda
1/2 cup butter, melted
1/2 cup honey
directions:
1. mix dry ingredients together and set aside.
2. in a separate bowl mix together the melted butter and the honey. 
3. add honey/butter mixture to dry ingredients, stir until combined.
4. drop mixture onto cookie sheet and roll out, making sure the edges reach the sides of the cookie sheet.
5. bake for 8-10 minutes at 400 degrees, cut quickly once out of the oven.
Tips: I used a glass to roll the mixture once it was on the cookie sheet. my cookie sheet was 10.5x15.5 inches, though i probably could have used a larger sheet and rolled them thinner since they puff up in the oven. It really just depends on what you want though. I poked holes with a fork just for looks, you don't have to do that. :)
 
Here's a picture so you can see they are quite a bit thicker than store bought graham crackers. They are a lot more filling, too, which is great.

My 2 1/2 year-old and I made these today when I got home from work. Easy to make, on-hand ingredients, a kid-friendly process, and yummy...genius! Thanks for posting!

Those chunky fingers holding the cracker have to be my favorite part! So cute!

If my two year old loves these as much as he loves ALL crackers, making them will become a regular family kitchen event :)

Yum! I'd love to try those, especially since where I'm living, they don't have graham crackers... Terrible, I know. ;) I'd love if you linked these {or some other sort of yumminess!} to my first link party going through Sunday... I only have 7 links so far, so there's a large chance whatever you link up will be featured! Thanks so much! :) -Sophie

I made these yesterday and they turned out great! It's the second recipe I have tried and the first was more like cookies. These have fewer (healthier) ingredients, easier instructions, and actually taste like graham crackers. I made a chocolate batch too. With 3 tbsp brown sugar (will probably try stevia next time) in the wet ingredients and 3 tbsp cocoa powder in the dry. They're not bad. My kids love them both! Thanks for the great recipe!

Thanks! these are great. Just made them. They are super quick and pretty yummy. I'm thinking about using them for smores sometime maybe with a little chocolate coating on one side.
