Jane has been loving graham crackers lately now that she has 2 teeth. We ran out the other day, so I decided to try to make some of my own. I found a few recipes and adapted them to come up with this one. I'm not sure if I would call them healthy...but they are definitely healthier than store bought ones since they have whole wheat flour and are lacking high fructose corn syrup.
I adapted my recipe mainly from this one.
Homemade Graham Crackers
1 1/4 cups white flour
1 cup whole wheat flour
1/2 cup brown sugar
1 tsp baking powder
1/2 tsp baking soda
1/2 tsp salt
1/4 tsp cinnamon
4 Tbs honey
1/4 cup + 1-2 Tbs water
1 tsp vanilla
1 stick melted butter
Combine dry ingredients. Combine wet ingredients separately. Add wet to dry and stir until a dough forms.
Roll out between 2 sheets of parchment or wax paper
Using a pizza cutter, cut the dough into squares and bake at 350 for 18 minutes. Turn the oven off and let them sit in the oven for 30 minutes to become crisp.
I thought they were really good, but they definitely taste different than the store bought ones. They aren't quite as sweet and have a slightly different texture.
Jane loved them and they were easy for her to gum and dissolve. Lula wasn't crazy about them since they are different than the other graham crackers she's had.
But, I think I will keep making them! Cheaper and healthier makes it worth it to me!
