cinnamon-honey Graham crackers (whole wheat)


Who wouldn’t like some freshly baked honey Grahams? With a hint of cinnamon, crisp and served with a cup of tea? All the party-goers at Fiesta Friday #15, here’s a snack to get us warmed up…

My goal was to get it to taste like the Honey Maid grahams, pictured here, but with 100% whole grain and with real ingredients, not something obscure like “natural flavor”. An added bonus is, it would be a fraction of the cost if made at home!Β These are super easy to make, no special equipment needed.

  2. This tickles my nostalgia! I love graham crackers and grew up eating the brand you pictured. Years ago I swore them off for all the bad stuff with which they are made (okay, could be worse). I am digging the idea of making your “healthy” version at home. Big fun.


  3. Apsara, these crackers definitely are the real deal! Perfectly cut and baked. I would be tempted to get a marshmallow and some chocolate to make a smore as soon as these came out of the oven!


  4. Wow! I had no idea we could make our own Graham crackers! This is very awesome and I bet they are so much more tasty than the store bought ones! πŸ˜€


    • thank you, Julianna. Taste-wise, they are good, just a little more crumbly than the store bought because those are made partly of APF.


  5. Hi, Aspara! I have seen recipes of homemade graham crackers before and most of them use… I think it’s called graham flour? I am not certain. Anyway, this is really awesome and I love graham crackers. I wish I could find myself some whole wheat pastry flour so I could make these. Or could I use other flour?! What do you think?

    Thank you for bringing these yummy crackers to FF15. I am sure everyone will enjoy and will be amazed by your creativity. πŸ˜‰


    • thank you, Jhuls, and for hosting FF too!
      You could use all-purpose flour in this, I would recommend half of APF and half of whole wheat flour. Graham flour is a different type of (coarsely ground) whole wheat, I believe. suppose that would be more authentic. πŸ™‚


      • It’s my pleasure, Aspara! I am so delighted to be one of your co-hosts today! πŸ˜‰

        Uh, okay! I bet homemade graham is better than the store-bought ones. πŸ˜‰

        Hope you are enjoying FF15. ❀


  6. Wow, great job!! I love how you’ve used ingredients I can actually get my hands on, seeing as how we don’t have graham crackers here. Thanks so much for sharing πŸ™‚


    • thank you, and welcome to my blog! I’m going over your blog and really like the way you recreate dishes. Similar to my philosophy! πŸ™‚


  7. How on earth did you get such perfect squares?!? I’m in awe…as I always end up with something more like an odd geometric shape when trying to cut something “straight”. Well done. Your recipe sounds great!


    • thank you, Nancy. That’s a lovely comment! I’m not very good at circles though, can’t make a round pizza, for example! πŸ™‚


    • thanks, Laura. For some reason, 2 of your comments went to spam, I’m glad I found them! I need to check my spam queue more often. πŸ™‚


  8. Lovely results! Thanks for this inspiring recipe. I should try to make my own too, especially since graham crackers are even more expensive here in Canada. S’more season, here I come!


  9. These are such a great idea, Apsara…
    I love to have a pot of home made cookies for guests,
    and these are going to be the next make!
    Thank you for the recipe – hope mine turn out as perfectly as yours!
    Emma πŸ˜‰


    • thanks for visiting and the nice comment, Emma. I’m sure yours will come out fine. Yes, I enjoy giving homemade cookies to guests too. πŸ™‚


  10. Hi Aspara – these fabulous crackers are just what we need – good call! I am very impressed with how perfectly you have cut them -they honestly look as if they have come from a box – amazing! Would be fab with some chocolate and a marshmallow…thank for bringing them to the party – hope you get a chance to make some new friends at FF #15!


  11. I am so glad that you published a recipe for grahams, it is one of my fond memories of childhood, my afternoon snack of graham crackers sometimes with peanut butter! Thank you for bringing to the party!


  12. I have been using the “boxed variety” for so long in a couple of desserts like smores and a crust for a cheesecake, but how special they would be if I made my own graham crackers – great idea πŸ™‚
