Homemade Graham Crackers

Growing up I loved Graham Crackers (still do!) and dipping them in milk for an after-school-snack was so delicious. But today's Graham Crackers are made with white flour rather than wheat flour and have high amounts of sugar (whether that's honey or high fructose corn syrup).

My mother-in-law introduced me to homemade Graham Crackers when she made them for the kids and then I found this recipe at Weelicious for Graham Crackers.

They are tasty. They are so easy to make. They are FUN! And best of all, they are made with healthy ingredients for little people! Samuel loves helping me make the dough and then roll them out and cut them into fun shapes. This is absolutely one of my favorite recipes that I have made for my kids.

Instead of passing out candy for a Valentine's treat, we cut these into hearts and shared them with our friends for Valentine's Day this past February. I think I might go make another batch right now....

Let me know if you try them and what you think!

P.S. While I was typing this Samuel was playing in the living room and Ryan was getting Lauren up from sleeping. Ryan came downstairs and found Samuel in the kitchen, underneath the table with a baggie filled with molasses cookies that my friend Jeri made. There was only one cookie left in the bag and crumbs all around Samuel's mouth. When we asked him how many he ate, he said, "2 1/2 cookies. But I only ate one at a time!" He didn't eat much cereal for breakfast, but he had 2 1/2 molasses cookies. There's only so much a mother can do....
