Whole Wheat Maple Graham Crackers

whole wheat maple graham crackers
Yes, I just said Whole Wheat Maple Graham Crackers, and for the few of you out there that realize the redundancy of that title, I heartily apologize. I case you are scratching your head about now (which admittedly I would have been not so long ago), graham is a coarsely ground whole wheat flour, hence the redundancy… life in the web era, what can I say.

This maple graham cracker recipe is the result of my daughter pointing out graham crackers in the grocery flyer yesterday, when I had no intention of leaving the house.  I was in full bunker down mode, so baking them from scratch seemed far less daunting than dealing with the store, and she enjoys stalking watching me while I bake.  I even got to use my maple leaf cookie cutter :)

The maple graham crackers went over well.  They were certainly tastier than the store bought ones.

    Thanks for the recipe! My 3-year-old and I just made pig-shaped graham crackers and they are DELICIOUS! He normally doesn’t like store-bought graham crackers but he’s loving these. Thanks again!
