These homemade graham crackers are an easy and fun project to make with kids! The dough comes together very easily, and can be rolled out by even the tiniest hands!
I originally started developing this recipe as a cereal replacement, since Einkorn Flour cereal is not yet available. It was delicious, but I kept thinking it would be a great graham cracker recipe!
And I was right!
When I finally got around to making these easy homemade graham crackers, I was kicking myself for not making them sooner!
- Preheat the oven to 350° F and line two baking sheets with parchment paper.
- In the bowl of an electric mixer, combine the Einkorn flour, baking soda, and cinnamon. Next, add in butter, brown sugar, sugar, vanilla, and honey. Process until the dough looks like small peas, then add the milk and process until a dough ball forms.
- Dump the dough out onto a well floured counter. Divide the dough into two balls.
- Working with one piece of dough at a time, roll the dough as thin as you can, no thicker than 1/4-inch thick, but preferably an 1/8-inch thick (about the thickness of a quarter).
- With a pastry cutter, pizza cutter, or very sharp knife – cut into 3x5 inch pieces and pierce each square with a fork several times.
- Sprinkle cinnamon and sugar over the top of the dough. You may need to use your hands to even out the coverage.
- Use a very thin spatula and pick up the pieces and place them on the prepared baking sheets. (They can be very close, as the dough doesn't spread much while baking.)
- Repeat with the remaining dough until all the dough has been used.
- Bake for 9 to 13 minutes or until lightly golden brown on top (watch closely). Allow to cool completely and store in an airtight container.
- I have graham crackers in a plastic bag that I made at Christmas that are still perfectly fine!
