Homemade graham crackers


S'mores season is back. Time to bake graham crackers. Graham crackers are relatively healthy snack option, so while my older nieces and nephews eat up the full on s'mores, I am happy to let my tot grab graham crackers. These tastes just like store bought, if not better. I don't usually like whole wheat's rough texture but for graham crackers, it just tastes so great.

I sat at the table with some coffee and a magazine, and my tot with his graham crackers and his book "the cat in the hat", it was a happy mid morning. Listening to him reciting his book is such a joyful thing. He's almost 2 1/2 and clearly he doesn't know how to read yet but he remembers the lines accordingly as he looks at each page. Some pages, I ask him what it says. He gives me this cutest look and says, I can't read, mommy. Haha. Kids are amazing.

Homemade graham crackers

Ingredients :

2 1/4 cup whole wheat flour
1/2 tsp cinnamon
1/2 tsp salt
1 tsp baking soda
1/2 cup butter, melted
1/2 cup honey
1 tsp vanilla

Directions :

1. Preheat the oven to 375F. Mix dry ingredients in a bowl and set aside.

2. Mix all the wet ingredients together and add dry ingredients. Mix well.

3. Roll it out on a cookie sheet very thin. I recommend as thin as you can make it, if you want it more crispy. Move the cookie sheet carefully onto a baking sheet. Cut into shapes you want. I used a pizza cutter to make lines. Pierce with a fork.

4. Bake for about 10 minutes or until edges start to brown.

5. Cool on the baking sheet and enjoy.
