Homemade graham crackers with a touch of sweet honey and cinnamon are the perfect snack and so much better than the store-bought variety.

Servings: 30 crackers
Calories: 111 kcal
  • 8 oz unsalted butter, softened (2 sticks)
  • ½ cup light brown sugar, packed
  • 2 Tbsp molasses
  • 2 Tbsp honey
  • 2 tsp cinnamon
  • 1 tsp kosher salt
  • 1 ¾ cups whole-wheat flour
  • ¾ cup all purpose flour
  1. Preheat oven to 350 degrees and line 2 sheet trays with parchment.

  2. Beat the butter with the sugar, molasses, and honey until light and fluffy, about 2 mins.

  3. Add the cinnamon, salt, and both flours and mix until just combined.

  4. Roll out the dough between two pieces of wax paper that have been lightly dusted with flour until ¼ inch thick.
  5. Using the square cookie cutter, cut out 30 graham crackers (re-rolling the scraps as necessary) and place them on the lined sheet trays.

  6. Use a fork to prick three decorative lines on each cracker.
  7. Bake for 20 mins, or just until crackers begin to brown at the edges.
Recipe Notes

Special Equipment: *2 ½ inch square cookie cutter (with or without fluted edges)

  • Lightly spray the measuring cup or spoons with cooking spray before pouring in the honey or molasses. The cooking spray allows it to slide right out easily instead of sticking to the measuring tool.
  • Floured wax paper makes for easy rolling. Just be sure to turn and flip it as you roll, adding a little more flour as needed to prevent sticking.
  • Roll the dough evenly so your crackers will bake evenly.
  • A love using a cookie cutter with fluted edges for a pretty edge.
  • Store the crackers in a bowl or plate covered with aluminum foil. Plastic wrap or tight plastic lids will make the crackers soft instead of crispy.
