About The Recipe

We have been all ABOUT the nostalgic treats this year. From Homemade Ding Dongs, Twinkies, Funnel Cakes…it’s been a lot of fun trying to remake our childhood treats. Though, we’re not stopping now! Graham crackers have been a go-to snack for us for…pretty much as long as I can remember.

We’ve always had a box on hand and some peanut butter nearby. It’s a quick, healthy-ish, sweet treat that the whole family loves!

Though, this recipe was actually inspired by our S’mores Icebox Cake! We had made giant graham cracker cookies for that recipe and, after we made it, we thought to ourselves…why not make some traditional graham crackers, too?

And, just to be honest, I really thought these were going to be harder to make than they actually are! The dough comes together relatively quickly, then you roll ’em, cut them out, and prick them. It’s seriously that simple.

My absolute favorite part about this recipe? Freakin’ homemade s’mores!!!

While these crackers work for anything traditional graham crackers do, I was most excited about making s’mores. I probably ate 2 or 3 while taking these photos! It was so much fun and SO. GOOD.

The crackers are soft, with a little bit of crisp, and perfectly sweet.

How To Make Honey Graham Crackers

Step 1: Make the dough

In a medium bowl, whisk together the whole wheat flour, all purpose flour, oat flour, wheat germ, brown sugar, salt, baking powder, and baking soda.

Grate in the butter and gently toss to coat.

Add water, honey, and vanilla. Mix until all dry ingredients are worked in and dough is smooth.

Step 3: Bake

Place on prepared pan and use a fork to prick dough. Bake for 12-14 minutes, until light brown.

What To Make With Graham Crackers?

The best part about graham crackers? You can literally make ANYTHING with them! Here’s a few of our favorite things to use these crackers for.

How To Make S’mores

S’mores are a classic American treat that are super simple to make! Traditionally made with half of a Hershey bar and a Jumbo marshmallow, my favorite way to quickly make s’mores is actually to build my s’more as normal. Graham cracker half, half of a chocolate bar, a jumbo marshmallow (though, I tend to prefer to use marshmallow fluff for ultimate gooey-ness!), and another graham cracker half on top.

From there, I place it on a plate and pop it into the microwave for a few seconds! That way, the marshmallow and the chocolate is definitely melty. You can also use a Kitchen Blowtorch to melt the chocolate and marshmallow, as you get the nice browning like you would around a campfire!

How To Store

Once these graham crackers are baked and cooled, you can store them at room temperature in a zip-top bag or airtight container for about 5-7 days. You can also freeze them in a freezer safe zip top bag for up to 3 months!

Substitutions

  • If you don’t have oat flour, you can grind rolled oats.
  • To make this recipe vegan, you can use your favorite vegan butter and agave syrup. It won’t taste the same with agave, but it will be similar.
