Easy Homemade Graham Crackers
This post was created in partnership with Horizon Organic
My 4-year-old recently helped me make the most delicious and easiest-ever homemade graham crackers. They’re full of simple, nourishing ingredients and come together so fast for snacking made easy (even on the go!). Plus, they’re fun to make and a great project to help get your kids in the kitchen.
I love, love, love having homemade graham crackers on hand because it makes grabbing a homemade snack between meals super simple for my whole family. I like to give them to my kids after school or between activities for a tasty bite that can help them feel full. For my youngest one, I love serving up graham crackers with new Horizon Organic Growing Years milk for an even bigger boost!
Growing Years organic milk is made specifically with kids in mind, which you know I love. Horizon partnered with pediatricians to identify key nutrients that kiddos aged 1 to 5 need to help them grow big and strong. Every glass of Growing Years organic milk provides 50mg of DHA Omega-3 to help support brain health, a good source of choline to help transport DHA in the body, and prebiotics that are good for little bellies. Plus, it has calcium and high vitamin D for strong bones.
With 5 quickly growing kids, I love finding foods that I know I can trust to feed and help fuel them. Horizon Organic is one brand that I've been giving them for years, and it’s made my life a whole lot easier and allowed me to be more present knowing Horizon delivers wholesome nutrients in tasty dairy products I know my kids will love.

What is the Graham in graham cracker?
It's graham flour! It's a type of whole wheat flour that you can typically find in the baking aisle with other specialty flours. You can use traditional whole wheat flour or graham flour in this recipe. Just use what you have on hand.
Is graham flour the same as wheat flour?
Graham flour is a whole wheat flour, but it is not the same as traditional whole wheat flour.
Graham flour contains all three parts of the wheat berry -- the germ, the endosperm and the bran. The endosperm is ground finely into a traditional-looking flour, while the germ and bran are ground coarsely. The three are then combined to give the flour its signature look with coarse flakes mixed into the ivory-colored flour.
