Easy Graham Crackers Recipe
2 1/2 to 3 cups whole wheat flour
1/4 cup brown sugar, packed
1 tsp. baking powder
1/2 tsp. baking soda
1/4 tsp. salt
1 tsp. cinnamon
1/3 cup oil
1/3 cup honey
2 Tbsp. molasses or dark corn syrup
1 tsp. vanilla
1/4-1/2 cup milk
Combine 2 1/2 cups flour with brown sugar, baking powder, baking soda, salt and cinnamon in a large bowl. Mix oil, honey, molasses, vanilla and 1/4 cup milk in a measuring cup or bowl.
Add liquid ingredients to the dry mixture. Mix well. Use your hands to finish mixing. If the dough is too sticky, add 1/2 cup more flour. If dough is too dry, add 1/4 cup milk.
Form dough into a ball. Preheat oven to 300 degrees. Divide dough in half. Roll dough directly onto greased cookie sheets to cover the entire sheet. Use a knife to cut dough into 21/2 inch squares, but do not separate. Prick the surface with a fork.
Bake for 15-25 minutes or until the edges are slightly browned. Remove from oven and let crackers cool before removing from cookie sheet. Store in airtight container. Makes 2-3 dozen.

Will this recipe work with gluten free flour?
No you don’t use gluten free flour.
I was thinking of trying King Arthur gluten free all purpose flour. Will let you know how it turns out. I would appreciate it if you and Tawra could share any gluten free bread recipes that you like. I love “Dining On A Dime” book.
Thanks Kellie – we would be glad to hear your opinion on it. We get asked about gluten free all the time.
I made the graham cracker recipe using the King Arthur gluten free all purpose flour. It turned out good.
If we wanted specialty shapes, can we use a cookie cutter before baking? Also, how sensitive is the dough to overworking?
I was wondering what size cookie sheets to use?? Thank you!
It really doesn’t matter just roll it on to cookie sheets to about 1/8 in thick.
I have whole wheat pastry flour in my cupboard. Do you think it would work to that type of flour. The pastry flour is a finer grind/texture than regular whole wheat flour.
This is one of those cases where I have never tried it and am not sure. You could halve or quarter the batch and experiment. That way you wouldn’t loose too many ingredients.
Do you need molasses? Because I don’t have any
You could use half honey and half brown sugar. Now the flavor won’t be exactly the same but it will work ok.
How can I turn this recipe into a crust?
