Homemade 100% Whole Wheat Graham Crackers

Once you've had one of these, you'll never want to go back to store bought!

Homemade Graham Crackers:

2/3 c whole wheat pastry flour
1 3/4 c regular whole wheat or graham flour
3/4 c sucanat
1 tsp baking powder
1/2 tsp baking soda
1/2 tsp sea salt
1/4 tsp ground cinnamon
1/2 c butter or coconut oil, cut into 1/2 pieces
2 Tbl honey
2 Tbl molasses
1/4 c cold water
1 teaspoon vanilla extract

Preheat oven to 350F. In food processor or by hand, mix flours, sugar, baking powder, baking soda, salt and cinnamon together. Add the cold butter and process or blend with pastry blender until mixture resembles coarse meal. Add the honey, molasses, water and vanilla. Mix until dough starts to come together into a ball. Split dough into two balls. Place a dough ball on two stoneware bar pans or cookie sheets. Roll out dough until it is an 1/8 of an inch thick. With sharp knife or pizza cutter, cut into 2 inch squares and prick several holes into each square with a toothpick (optional). Bake 10 to 15 minutes until lightly browned on edges. You want them to be crispy but not burned! They burn easily, so watch them closely. Remove from oven and let cool in pan. Break them up and store in tightly sealed container. If you are wanting to make a pie crust, just roll dough out it a pie dish instead of a bar pan.
