Homemade Honey Graham Crackers

You may have just thought you loved graham crackers! Try to imagine them made from scratch! AND without that long list of ingredients unknown on the back of a store bought box!

This recipe is actually a little flexible...which I LOVE!! I'm thinking I may just make them a little different at Christmas thyme to build a Gingerbread House! Just add a little ginger!!


1 1/2 cups organic unbleached flour
1 cup organic whole-wheat flour
1/2 cup graham flour, or wheat bran
good pinch of kosher salt
1 teaspoon baking soda
1 teaspoon ground cinnamon
1 cup unsalted organic butter, softened (2 sticks)
3/4 cup brown sugar, packed
3 to 4 tbsp. local raw honey


Add all the dry ingredients to a large bowl and whisk together. In a separate bowl add the butter, brown sugar and honey and whip with your mixer. 

Add the dry ingredients to your butter mixture and stir with a wooden spoon just until it begins to lump together. Next, simply dump out your bowl onto a lightly floured surface. Squeeze it together until it forms a nice little dough ball.

Divide the dough into four parts. Take one part at a time and roll it out in between a couple of sheets of parchment paper until it is about 1/8 of an inch thick. Use a pizza cutter and cut your graham cracker squares or rectangles.

Slide the whole thing onto a cookie sheet and place it in the freezer for about 30 minutes.

Preheat Oven to 350 degrees.

Take your tray out of the freezer and make holes with a fork, just like you see when you buy a box.

It was taking exactly 9 minutes in my oven. Not one minute more! They are still quite soft when you take them out. I simply let them cool on my wire rack and they firm the cooler they get. Although...we had quite a bit of a treat eating some warm out of the oven with a little cold milk.

This was another great project to share with my grandchildren. They just never know what to think about all that dough on their fingers. 

Happy Homesteading!
