Homemade Cinnamon Graham Crackers

Graham crackers are a staple snack in our pantry.  Dunk them in milk, dip the in applesauce, spread them with peanut butter.  So many possibilities!  And then one day I found this recipe for homemade graham crackers.  I know right, you can make these?!  The thought had never crossed my mind!  I knew I most definitely had to give them a try!  They came together very easily.  Similar to making cookies, I'd say.  They actually kind of remind me of ginger bread cookies.  And the taste?  It was fabulous!  You know what they say, homemade is always better.  The kids were totally impressed and I'm pretty much feeling like a domestic rock star right now.  I think these will become a new staple in our pantry.

2 cup whole wheat flour
3 cups all purpose flour
1 cup dark brown sugar, packed
2 TBS wheat bran
1 tsp salt
2 tsp cinnamon
2 tsp baking soda
1 cup butter, room temp
1/2 cup honey
1/2 cup water
2 tsp vanilla
1/4 cup cinnamon sugar, to sprinkle on top

Preheat oven to 350 degrees. In a large bowl, sift together wheat flour, all purpose flour, brown sugar, salt, cinnamon, wheat bran and baking soda. Cut butter into flour mixture until coarse, add honey, water and vanilla then use beaters to mix together until evenly distributed. Shape dough into a ball then roll flat (about 1/4 inch thick) on a floured surface. You don't want it to be too thick or too thin. Use a pizza cutter to cut into squares then use a fork to make the design in the center and poke holes on top.  Sprinkle with cinnamon sugar.  Place on a parchment lined baking sheet and bake for 10-13 minutes. Cool and serve with a cold glass of milk.

These are seriously the best! I have them on my snack schedule this week again and I'll have to try the cinnamon version this time!

I've always thought it would be too much work when I would see these recipes before. But you make it seem totally doable. I'm going to try theM.

Any time you can add more sugar, the more my kids like it, haha! It's definitely good without the cinnamon sugar too though. Winner all around!

That's what I thought too! They aren't hard or time consuming at all though. It's about like making cookies. You'll have to let me know how they turn out!
