Gingerbread Graham Crackers


Gingerbread Graham Crackers- Healthy Christmas snack for kids. Not-too-sweet cookie that you can feel good about giving to your kids!

I'm always searching for healthy snacks for my kids.  These gingerbread graham crackers are definitely something that you can feel good about giving to your little ones in the midst of the cookie and candy extravaganza that happens between Halloween and Christmas every year!  The gingerbread flavor really lends itself to Christmas, so we used our little Christmas cookie cutters to make a perfect holiday treat!  They are barely sweet, crunchy and crispy without being too hard, and darn cute.  They'd also make a great little teething biscuit for your babies if you substituted a different sweetner for the honey (no honey under age 1, remember)!

This recipe was modified from the Weelicious recipe for graham crackers.  Catherine's  site is AMAZING and is filled with tons of great ideas.

Gingerbread Graham Crackers- healthy Christmas snack for kids

Here's how to make them:


1 cup whole wheat flour
1 1/2 cup all purpose flour
1/3 cup brown sugar
1/2 teaspoon salt
3 teaspoons cinnamon
1 1/2 teaspoons ground ginger
1 teaspoon baking soda
1/2 cup (1 stick) unsalted butter, chilled and cubed
1/4 cup honey (you could also use maple syrup, agave, or rice syrup)
1/4-1/2 cup water


Preheat oven to 350 degrees.

Using a food processor, pulse the dry ingredients until blended.  Then add the butter and pulse until you have coarse crumbs.  Next, add the honey and 1/4 cup water.  Turn on the food processor and add additional water, 1 tablespoon at a time, as needed until dough forms into a ball.

Chill dough for approximately 30 minutes.  Then, using a rolling pin, roll dough between two sheets of parchment paper until dough is approximately 1/3 inch thick.  Cut using cookie cutters (I have and love this set from Wilton).

Place on a parchment or silpat lined baking sheet and bake for approximately 15 minutes.  Watch them closely as you approach 15 minutes -- the line between crispy and burnt is pretty thin here.  They should be golden brown on top and look 'set', but should not be browning on the edges.  They'll crisp up a little as they cool, too.
