Whole Grain Graham Crackers (Clean Eating Version)

Ingredients:

ADD TO LIST
  • 1 1/4 c. whole wheat flour
  • 1 1/2 t. ground cinnamon
  • 1/2 t. baking soda
  • 1/2 t. salt
  • 2 T. cold butter, cut into small pieces(Note: I plan on replacing this w/2T. of Coconut Butter next time I try these)
  • 2 egg whites, divided
  • 6 T. dark brown sugar(Note: I substituted this with 3 T. of Sucanat. You might even be able to go to 2T)
  • 2 T. Honey
  • 1T. vanilla extract
  • 3 T. raw or turbinado sugar(I didn't do the last step of this recipe and skipped using this).

Instructions:

  1. Preheat oven to 350. Line 2 large baking sheets with parchment paper & set aside.
    In a large bowl, whisk together flour, cinnamon, baking soda and salt. Add butter and work into flour w/your hands until completely incorporated and mixture resembles fine meal. In a medium bowl, whisk together 1 egg white, brown sugar(or sucanat), honey and vanilla. Add this to flour mixture and stir until a sticky dough forms(Note: I found I need to add a tiny bit of water to mine).
  2. Turn 1/2 the dough out onto a very well floured surface and roll otu into a 10″ square. Cut into 12 rectangles and transfer to one of the baking sheets, spacing them about 1″ apart. Repeat process w/remaining dough.
  3. Brush graham crackers w/remaining egg white and sprinkle raw sugar over the tops(Note: I skipped this step. Next time I may try sprinkling w/a touch of cinnamon & sucanat). Bake until dark brown and fragrant, 12-14 minutes. Set aside to cool completely…they will harden sa they cool.
