I originally started developing this recipe as a crunchy 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!

They are the perfect replacement for store bought graham crackers! You can make them with all organic ingredients if you want. We use einkorn flour in ours, but you can use any wheat flour!

Homemade Einkorn Graham Crackers

When I finally got around to making these easy homemade graham crackers, I was kicking myself for not making them sooner! They seriously taste like the best, freshest (is that a word) graham crackers you've ever had!

Since creating this recipe, we have used these einkorn graham crackers for s'mores, graham cracker crusts for cheesecakes, and of course to eat plain! So delicious!

For the perfect homemade s'mores, use homemade marshmallows, and honey sweetened chocolate!

You can make them by rolling out the dough and cutting them with a knife or a pizza roller. However, I really like having them all perfectly formed and even!

So, I use this awesome graham cracker cookie cutter! It perforates the quarters and dots the crackers so they crisp up perfectly!

How to Make Graham Cracker Crust

If you love making cheesecakes, or no-bake pies, this graham cracker recipe is perfect for a delicious, tender, and healthy graham cracker crust!

Step 1

In a food processor, pulse graham crackers into crumbs - you'll need 3 cups of crumbs.

Step 2

Combine crumbs with 1/2 cup white sugar and 3 tablespoons melted butter. Mix until well combined.

Step 3

Press mixture into a parchment paper lined spring form pan. Bake at 375°F (190°C) for 7 minutes. Cool. If recipe calls for unbaked pie shell, just chill for about 1 hour.

How to Store Homemade Graham Crackers

You can store your homemade graham cracker goodness in an air tight container for about 3 months (longer if you use a silica pack in the container!).

You can also freeze them for use much later on. We had some in the freezer for over a year that still tasted amazing when we pulled them out!

Ingredients

For Cracker

  • 2 1/2 cups Einkorn flour
  • 2 teaspoons baking soda
  • 2 teaspoons cinnamon
  • 1/3 cup butter at room temperature
  • 1/3 cup brown sugar
  • 1/8 cup granulated sugar
  • 1 tablespoon vanilla extract
  • 2 tablespoons honey
  • 1/2 cup milk

For Topping

  • 1/8 cup granulated sugar
  • 3/4 teaspoons cinnamon

US - Metric

Instructions

  • 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. (Or make it easy and use this graham cracker cookie cutter!)

  • 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.

Notes

Store in an air tight container with a silica pack for freshness. Lasts for 3-6 months!

    Can you use gluten free flour as well?

    Reply

    • Homemade Graham Crackers (12)Victoria says

      Hi Marybeth! If you have a flour that is formulated to be a 1:1 replacement for flour, then yes! :-) Otherwise, I don’t know what the replacements would be.

    So you don’t use ANY graham flour in these at all? And they taste like graham cracker?

    Reply

    • Homemade Graham Crackers (14)Victoria says

      Hi Jen, great question! Since we cannot have any wheat flour besides einkorn (due to gluten sensitivities and celiacs in our family), we do not use any graham flour. However, we have found that these make a wonderful taste-alike for the traditional graham crackers we grew up with! Enjoy!

    Do you know when the graham cracker cookie cutter will be back in stock? It says it’s sold out.

    Reply

    • Homemade Graham Crackers (16)Victoria Pruett says

      Hey Courtney! I just put them up about 2 weeks ago and they sold out same day! I make them by all myself, so I usually constantly make them and put them up when I have a few hundred. If you follow my Etsy page or join my newsletter you will get notified as soon as they come back into stock. I’m not sure of the exact date yet, so that’s the best way to stay up to date!

    Hi Victoria,
    I am wondering if you’ve tried making these with maple sugar.
    Thanks Beth

      Yes! They may not be AS crispy as when made with white/brown sugar. But still very delicious!
