Edible Ashley’s Graham Crackers

I love graham crackers. Okay, I take that back. I love the idea of graham crackers. The complex molasses flavor, the crumbly texture, the hint of sweetness.

Unfortunately, all of the brands I’ve tried have had the not-so-complex flavor of cardboard, with the texture to match. And sometimes, way too much sugar to cover up the lack of other flavors. I will eat them on occasion, but mostly use them as a vehicle of getting dessert pesto or dessert hummus to my mouth.

Once I saw that Edible Ashley had her own graham cracker recipe, I knew I had to try them! A short list of staple ingredients? Only one bowl required? Yes please!

I had to make a few modifications. I didn’t have molasses and was almost out of maple syrup. Since brown sugar is made out of molasses, I subbed some in. But they still came out beautifully, with a rich flavor and perfect texture!

Edible Graham Crackers


  • 1 1/2 cups whole wheat flour
  • 1/2 cup brown sugar
  • 1/2 teaspoon baking soda
  • Dash of ground nutmeg
  • 2 teaspoons ground cinnamon
  • 1/2 tsp salt
  • 3 tablespoons canola oil
  • 1 tablespoon applesauce
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla extract
  • 2 teaspoons maple syrup
  • 3 tablespoons milk


  1. Preheat oven to 350*F. In a bowl, stir all dry ingredients.
  2. Add in the wet ingredients to the bowl, and work the dough with your hands. Mix until everything is just barely combined.
  3. On a greased piece of aluminum foil, roll out the dough to about 1/8" thick. Slice with a pizza cutter.
  4. Line a baking sheet with foil and grease the foil with canola oil. Transfer the cut crackers over to the baking sheet, leaving about 1/4" between the grahams.
  5. Poke holes into each graham cracker using a fork. Bake for 14 minutes.
  6. Allow the crackers to cool completely, so they get nice and crispy. Enjoy with some dessert pesto, dessert hummus, or as a S'more!

    Julie your timing is impecable! I wanted to buy graham crackers when I went grocery shopping this week, but I forgot to put them on my list and therefore forgot to buy them. I wasn’t going to go back to the store for just a box of graham crackers, and now I don’t have to!

    Banana soft serve between two graham crackers make for awesome “ice cream” sandwiches!
