Homemade Graham Crackers

  • Cook Time: 16 minutes
  • Total Time: 16 minutes


a homemade version of your favorite graham crackers!



  • 1 1/2 cups whole wheat flour
  • 3/4 cup all-purpose flour
  • 3/4 tsp salt
  • 1/2 tsp baking soda
  • 2 tsp. water
  • 4 Tbsp. unsalted butter, softened
  • 6 Tbsp. sugar
  • 1 egg, well beaten
  • 1/4 cup honey


  1. Preheat oven to 350 degrees F.
  2. Combine the whole wheat flour, all-purpose flour, and salt and set aside.
  3. Dissolve the baking soda in water, then set aside.
  4. In the bowl of an electric mixer, cream the butter, sugar, and egg until they are light and fluffy.
  5. Add the honey and baking soda mixture, and mix until incorporated.
  6. Add the flour mixture gradually, scrape down the sides of the bowl occassionally, and mix just until uniform.
  7. Line baking sheet with parchment paper. Divide the dough into 2 lumps.
  8. On a generously floured (use all-purpose) surface, roll out the dough one lump at a time to 1/8 inch thick. Cut the dough into approximately 4×4-inch sections (or cookie cutter shapes), so that they will be easy to flip with a spatula during baking. Place the sections on a baking sheet 1 inch apart and roll out the rest of the crackers in the same way.
  9. Poke each cracker several times with a fork.
  10. Bake the crackers for 6-8 minutes then flip them over. (The underside should be lightly browned). Bake for another 4-6 minutes, until the other side is lightly browned. Turn the oven off and open the oven door.
  11. Loosen the crackers with a spatula, snack on a few, and let the remaining dry out in the oven for 2 more hours.
