Teddy (and other animal) Grahams
- 1 cup graham flour
- 1 cup white whole wheat flour
- 2 tsp baking powder
- 1 tsp cinnamon
- 1/2 stick (1/4 cup) butter
- 1/2 cup honey
- 1 tsp (or two?) vanilla
- 1/4 cup milk (I used whole for the babies, but skim would work fine as well) plus a little extra to brush the tops.
- Combine the flours, cinnamon and baking powder in a food processor. Add the butter in small pieces and combine until it looks crumbly. Then add the honey, vanilla and milk. Process until it clumps together in a ball. Roll out on a lightly floured surface. You will need to incorporate a bit of the extra flour until it becomes less sticky. Roll out to 1/4 or 1/8th inch thickness. Cut into shapes.
- Place on ungreased baking sheets and bake at 400 degrees for about 8-10 minutes.
- Take them out when they are light golden brown. They may seem a little soft, but they will harden as they cool.
- These were a hit with the big kids and 50/50 with the twins. They’re a more subtle taste than regular teddy grahams. They’re harder crackers and they make a bit of a mess, but at least you know exactly what’s in them and you can feel good about giving them to your kids.
