These crunchy, delicious graham crackers are so easy to make – simply roll out the dough and cut into rectangles for traditional graham crackers, as shown above.
Or cut out the dough using your favorite holiday cookie cutters to make festive graham cracker cookie treats, as shown below.
You can also create Chocolate Graham Cracker Cookies by simply adding unsweetened fair trade cocoa powder (see recipe for details).
The Key to Crisp Crackers: To make these honey grahams crisp and crunchy like a cracker, be sure to roll the dough out thinly and evenly (to about an 1/8-inch). Also, once baking time is completed, follow step #11 below to allow additional time for the crackers to get nice and crispy.
Additional Baking Tip: To ensure cookies bake evenly, gently transfer cracker cut-outs to a parchment-lined baking sheet as shown above.
This recipe was inspired by a whole wheat graham cracker recipe I came across at Heavenly Homemakers. Since graham crackers are one of my all-time favorites, I decided to adapt the recipe to utilize whole spelt instead, since it’s our whole grain flour of choice.
Why whole spelt? I prefer whole spelt over whole wheat for a couple of reasons. Mainly because I can tolerate spelt better than wheat and also, I find that spelt has a lighter taste and texture than whole wheat.
Whole spelt does contain gluten, so it’s not a good choice for those with gluten-related allergies or sensitivities. For more about whole spelt, click here.
