Homemade Graham Crackers

Have you ever wondered about the number of chocolate chips that can fit in a graham cracker + peanut butter sandwich? 

Yeah, me too.

I wrote this recipe down on a random piece of paper in one of the spirals I have laying around my house, all of which are filled with half thought out recipe ideas and recipes without titles.  Every time I write down a recipe, I just open the spiral to a random page and write down the recipe in a random corner and then forget about the recipe until I get to share it with you.  Life would be so much easier if I could just get it together and, you know, like fill out the spiral in the proper page order.  And say keep the spirals in the same location.  But no.  I prefer the drama.  I guess.

So it goes.  I’m hoping that if you are reading this then you are just like me.  Meaning you would be game to sit and stare at picture of a peanut butter puddle on top of a graham cracker…

Because I love peanut butter puddles.

So this weekend we ate s’mores (no peanut butter was involved…which seems silly now.), which launched me into this complete graham cracker obsession. 

Sometimes I make things and I don’t tell my husband about them.  And then they all disappear and he’ll see a random picture of said food and he’ll be like, when did you make that? And why didn’t I ever see it?  That is because I’m sneaky.  And I strategically hid it in places he doesn’t look, like the peanut butter shelf in the fridge.

I should share.  I know I should share.  Especially when Andrew is so easy to get along with.  Seriously.  He complains about very little (except when I purchase another dish towel that is super cute but that isn’t absorbent AT.ALL. or when I don’t buy enough chicken at the store).

Have I told you about our bathroom situation?  We (read: Andrew) are (is) remodeling our half bath so we’re down to one bathroom.  There has only been one time when I very nearly died waiting for the bathroom.  Oh marriage, you are an adventure…in bladder control.

So graham crackers are fab.  Those are my feelings.

Make these graham crackers.  Find a campfire.  Toast some marshmallows.  Make s’mores.

Life is beautiful and simple.

Homemade Graham Crackers
  1. 1 1/2 cup whole wheat flour
  2. 3 tablespoons brown sugar, packed
  3. 1 teaspoon cinnamon
  4. 1/2 teaspoon baking soda
  5. 2 tablespoons molasses
  6. 1 teaspoon vanilla extract
  7. 2 tablespoons honey
  8. 3 tablespoons milk
  9. 2 tablespoons oil (coconut oil or canola oil)
  1. Preheat oven to 350F. Combine all ingredients in a bowl until a dough is formed. Flour a cutting board and roll out the dough into ~1/4 inch thickness. Cut into rectangular, graham cracker shapes. Use a fork to poke holes into the crackers to make them look like traditional graham crackers. Place cut out dough onto a greased baking sheet. Bake for 12-16 minutes (12 for softer graham crackers and 16 for crunchy traditional graham crackers).
Makes 8 rectangular graham crackers
