Homemade Graham Crackers

  • Prep Time: 25 minutes
  • Cook Time: 15 minutes
  • Total Time: 40 minutes


Homemade graham crackers made with whole wheat and touch of honey. 



  • ½ cup all purpose flour
  • 1 ½ cups whole wheat flour
  • ¾ cup powdered sugar
  • 1 tsp baking powder
  • ½ tsp salt
  • 1 tsp cinnamon
  • ½ cup unsalted butter
  • 2 tbsp honey
  • 2 tbsp cold milk


  1. Preheat the oven to 325º F. Cut two sheets of parchment paper to fit two baking sheets.
  2. Whisk together the flours, sugar, baking powder, salt and cinnamon. Cut the butter into the flour mixture with a pastry cutter, two forks or your hands until the texture is crumbly.
  3. In a small bowl whisk together the milk and honey until the honey dissolves. Pour the milk and honey into the flour mixture and toss with a fork until a dough begins to develop.
  4. Press and fold the dough in the bowl 10-12 times until it becomes smooth. Divide the dough in half.
  5. Place one half of the dough on a sheet of parchment paper. Roll the dough (on top of the parchment) into a rectangle roughly 10×14. The dough will be very thin around 1/16 inch. Trim the edges to create an even rectangle.
  6. Cut the dough into 16 rectangles using a pizza cutter. The crackers need bake together in one large sheet, so don’t separate the rectangles.
  7. Use a fork to prick the dough evenly to prevent irregular puffing.
  8. Slide the dough and parchment back on the baking sheet. Bake for 15-20 minutes, until they reach a golden brown color.
  9. Cool completely on the baking sheet and then carefully break apart the rectangles.
  10. Graham crackers should be stored tightly wrapped in wax paper.
