Graham Crackers

When we started potty training we bribed Soraya with crackers. She could have 2 crackers every time she used the potty. Well, we were going through a lot of crackers. And in my opinion, even the "healthiest" cracker in the super market still is not nourishing to the body. It is more harmful than helpful. So, I decided to make some homemade graham crackers. I just made them for the second time today and they turned out even better than the first time! They are actually pretty good. I enjoyed dunking them in some raw milk :)
Graham Crackers
41/2 c. spelt flour
1 c. butter
1 c. buttermilk
2 c. rapadura or sucanant
2 tsp baking soda
1/2 tsp salt
1 tsp vanilla

Mix flour, butter and buttermilk and let stand at room temperature overnight. (Use a glass bowl and cover with a plate). Next morning, mix rest of ingredients and add to four mixture. Roll out as thin as possible and cut with a cooking cutter. Bake at 350 until crisp.

  • My hardest problem is rolling them thin enough. I still think I can get them thinner. The harder I push though, the more they tend to stick to the counter.
  • I don't have any cookie I use a shot glass :) Works great!
  • They seem to stick less to my stone than cookie sheets.
  • 15 minutes seems to be the right amount of time. They will crisp up some as they cool, so take them out when they are golden brown.


  1. Those sound pretty good!
    Completely off topic....we'll be up there on Sunday. Will you be at church?

  2. don't press harder when rolling - just roll longer. start in the middle and roll out in all directions. maybe that'll keep them from sticking.
