Today I am going to share with you Homemade Graham Crackers. I got this recipe from the "Dining On A Dime Cook Book". I love this cookbook by the way, it is one of my favorites. I have made a lot of really good meals from this cook book.
One of the ingredients is Whole Wheat Flour. I have decided that I am pretty awesome, well really anyone with a wheat grinder and wheat berries on hand. If you don't have a wheat grinder and wheat berries, then you can always be awesome and buy some whole wheat flour at the grocery store.
I turned these
One tip I learned a log time ago and so far it has worked. Put a Bay Leaf in your flour canister to keep away weavels. Before I actually did this, I had weavels getting in my flour all the time and I keep my cupboards pretty darn clean.
Another tip I learned from my Grandma. If your brown sugar gets hard put a piece of bread in with it and let it sit for a couple of days, it will soften back up and leave you with a hard piece of bread.
2 1/2 C. whole wheat flour
1/4 C. brown sugar (next time I will use a little bit more)
1 tsp. baking powder
1/2 tsp. baking soda
1/4 tsp. salt
1 tsp. cinnamon
1/3 C. oil
1/3 C. honey
2 TBSP. molasses or dark corn syrup
1 tsp. vanilla
1/4 C. milk
I put all of the ingredients in my mixer and let it go.
Then I divided the dough in half and rolled it out in the greased cookie sheets. Then I pricked it with a fork and scored it with a sharp knife.
I baked them at 300 degrees for 15 minutes. After they are cooled take them off the cookie sheets and store them in an airtight container.
To me it looks as if they don't mind eating healthier graham crackers.
