cinnamon-honey Graham crackers (whole wheat)

DSC01249

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™‚

  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!

  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™‚
