Homemade Graham Crackers


3 cups  whole wheat flour
3/4 cup  brown sugar
1 teaspoon  baking soda
3/4 teaspoon kosher salt
5 tablespoons  butter

In a food processor mix thoroughly before adding wet ingredients.

1/3 cup honey
5 tablespoons fat free milk
2 tablespoons vanilla extract

The dough will be a little sticky. Spray a large cookie sheet with non-stick spray and place half of your dough onto the cookie sheet.  Roll out the dough to about 1/8 inch thickness.  Cut to desired size. I used a pastry cutter. (Note: the dough will come back together during the baking so immediately after baking cut again along the same lines.) Sprinkle with cinnamon/sugar or cinnamon if you like.  Bake at 350 degrees for 15 min. Remove from pan while hot and break into squares.  They will firm up quickly and will stick to the pan if they aren’t removed right away.  Enjoy! 

This isn’t necessarily a “healthy” recipe but they are only 20 calories per cracker (the way I cut them there are 140 total crackers) and they taste like blonde brownies to me so I’ll enjoy them.  I did cut out 2 tbsp of butter and 1/4 cup brown sugar and made it all whole wheat from the original recipe. Next time I make them I’ll see just how much I can cut out from the butter and sugar and still have them taste good.  I think they are DIVINE!!!

  1. These sound so yummy! I wonder how they'd do if I converted them to gluten-free? Think I'll try it :)
