Whole Wheat Graham Crackers are a homemade version of your favorite cracker. Top with peanut butter, dip in milk and enjoy the crunchy texture and honey flavor.



  • 2 1/4 cups whole wheat flour
  • 1/3 cup sucanat (dehydrated cane juice) or brown sugar
  • 1 teaspoon baking powder
  • 1/2 teaspoon baking soda
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt
  • 1/4 teaspoon cinnamon
  • 3 tablespoons honey
  • 1/4 cups water
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla
  • 1/2 cup butter, melted


  1. Preheat oven to 350 degrees.
  2. Place all your dry ingredients in the bowl of your mixer and combine.
  3. Add all of the wet ingredients and mix with the cookie paddle attachment until everything comes together. The dough isn’t sticky and is moderately greasy.
  4. Divide the dough in half and roll half out on a floured surface. Roll to about 1/4 inch thick. You can treat the dough like a sugar cookie dough and cut out shapes or you can use a pizza cutter and cut out squares. Place the cut out crackers on a parchment-paper-lined cookie sheet, and prick them with a fork.
  5. Bake for 8-12 minutes until the edges just slightly darken. They will harden up more as they cool.
  6. Store in an air tight container.


  • You can use coconut oil in place of all or part of the butter.
  • The thickness of the dough and the baking time will change the texture of the cracker. Sometimes I like them thicker and baked less, which yields more of a cookie texture. Lots of times I will roll out half the dough for thin crackers and the other half for thicker cookies.
