cinnamon-honey Graham crackers (whole wheat)

Comments : 72 Posted in : Crackers, Eggless cookies on by : apsara Tags: , ,


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.


Dough looks like this:



Rolled out and cut:



On a baking sheet:



I recently got a kitchen scale (yay!) and henceforth all my baking recipes will have weighed out ingredients for better accuracy. πŸ™‚

      thanks, Sonal. You’re so generous with your praise πŸ™‚

    This is really neat. I never thought of making my own graham crackers/

    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.

    • May 9, 2014 at 8:23 am

      πŸ™‚ yes, it is fun!

  • May 8, 2014 at 11:26 pm

    Oh these look so good, Apsara. It’s after dinner-time but we won’t mind munching on a few of these. πŸ™‚

    • May 9, 2014 at 8:23 am

      I like crackers any time of the day! πŸ™‚

  • May 9, 2014 at 1:23 am

    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!

    • May 9, 2014 at 8:25 am

      that’s a great idea!

  • May 9, 2014 at 2:54 am

    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˜€

    • May 9, 2014 at 8:30 am

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

  • May 9, 2014 at 3:05 am

    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˜‰

    • May 9, 2014 at 8:34 am

      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™‚

      • May 9, 2014 at 8:37 am

        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. <3

    Those little crackers look so neat and yummy! I haven’t made cracker before, but I’d like to try sometime. Thank you for the recipe!

      you’re welcome, weebirdie. πŸ™‚

  • May 9, 2014 at 5:40 am

    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™‚

    • May 9, 2014 at 8:41 am

      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™‚

  • May 9, 2014 at 8:49 am

    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!

    • May 9, 2014 at 8:53 am

      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™‚

    • May 17, 2014 at 4:26 pm

      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™‚

    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!

    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!

  • May 12, 2014 at 8:57 am

    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™‚

    • May 12, 2014 at 9:39 am

      thanks, Judi. πŸ™‚

  • May 13, 2014 at 6:25 am

    We are not used with these crackers here in Belgium but they look so good! I must try these, for sure! πŸ™‚ xxx
