Please take note of the ingredients on the foods you buy! You will often be surprised to say the least. Even when something seems simple you can find corn syrup, soy lecithin, and a myriad of other difficult to pronounce ingredients.

When you make your own snack foods (and other foods) you are cutting out the guessing game of what things are and what is ok to serve…

Here is a fun and easy recipe for Graham Crackers your kids and you are sure to enjoy.

GRAHAM CRACKERS

1/3 c EVOO, 1/3 c honey, ¼ c milk, 2 T molasses, 1 tsp vanilla, 2 ½-3 c whole wheat flour, 1 tsp baking powder, ½ tsp baking soda, ¼ tsp salt, 1 tsp cinnamon

Mix all together- by hand, food processor, or mixer. A little sticky is ok- add flour if necessary- works well to mix with your hand once pretty incorporated. Grease a cookie sheet. Press/Roll out the dough to pretty thin on the sheet- don’t worry if it doesn’t cover the whole sheet. Cut and/or poke holes where you want them to break. Bake in 300 degree oven for 20-25 minutes- If you want them very crisp- let them sit in the oven with the door open to crisp up.

Tip: Use a kids rolling pin (may need to cut the ends off to work with your baking sheet) to roll out the dough.
