How to make your own from-scratch graham crackers!

 Homemade Graham Crackers

Graham crackers from the store can not only be so expensive but also filled with some things you'd rather not munch on. Luckily they are one of those things that are super easy to make from scratch! I made mine a little too thick and they came out like soft thin cookies but my husband loved them! So either way you make them, crunchy or soft, I think they would be good! This recipe is perfect with summer campfires coming up soon!

Homemade Graham Crackers


  • 1/2 cup white flour
  • 1 3/4 cup wheat flour
  • 1/2 cup white sugar
  • 1 t.easpoon baking powder
  • 1/2 teaspoon baking soda
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt
  • 1/4 teaspoon cinnamon
  • 1/2 cup cold butter, cut into pieces
  • 2 Tablespoons honey
  • 2 Tablespoons molasses
  • 1/4 cup cold water
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla

Graham Cracker Making

Mix all dry ingredients together. Add the butter (I put mine in the blender) and mix together. Add the honey, molasses, water, and vanilla.

Roll Out Graham Cracker Dough

Roll out very flat onto a baking sheet. (About 1/8 in. thick) It helps the cover the dough with wax paper before you roll it. Chill in refrigerator for about an hour. Heat oven to 350F.

Cut Graham Crackers

Use a pizza cutter to score the dough into pieces.

Pricking Graham Crackers

Then prick it with a toothpick in several places.

Homemade Graham Cracker

Bake about 15 minutes or until desired hardness is reached. So simple!

I have not tried it yet but you may be able to use my Gluten Free Flour Blend + Brown Rice Flour in place of the white and wheat flours in this recipe. If you do try this switch, please let us know in the comments section how it goes!

Now, I know this isn't in any way healthy but one of my favorite treats when I was growing up with graham crackers with a little frosting spread on top. If this is one of your *secret* favorite snacks too, you might want to try this yummy Chocolate Cream Cheese Frosting Recipe or this recipe for The Best Cream Cheese Frosting to top your graham crackers.

You didn’t say the temp at which to bake it.

Oh, sorry, it’s u the text under one of the pictures. Might be helpful to include it on the ingredients list to pre-heat over to 350 degrees.
