The History Behind Graham Crackers

Inspired by Sylvester Graham's preachings that a vegetarian lifestyle with a diet comprising homemade whole grain bread was how God intended his people to live. His theory was to inspire people to live and eat healthy. It was only when Grahamites, his followers, started the first vegetarian movement in the United States. Hereafter, the terms graham flour, graham bread, and graham crackers became widely popular.

Tips for baking graham crackers or honey cookies with whole wheat:


  1. Use honey for subtle sweetness.
  2. A mix of honey and black salt lends a savory feel to these crackers
  3. Keep the crackers crust thin for a crunchy feel, as the recipe uses honey that has moisture in it and could make thick crackers chewy- I made one batch thick and another one crispy thin. I love thin crunchy crackers more.


So let's come back to the whole grain digestive biscuit recipe.

Ingredients of Honey Cookies

1 cup- whole wheat
1 cup- oatmeal
1/2 cup- honey (I added 2 tbsp less than 1/2 cup)
1/4 cup- vegetable oil/olive oil
2 tbsp  -milk
Green tea/matcha for aroma (optional)
2 fat pinches of black salt or common salt
1 tsp- baking soda

How to make eggless whole wheat graham crackers: Honey Cookies


  1. Preheat oven/microwave convection to 170 degrees for 10 minutes.
  2. Gather all the ingredients

Mix whole wheat and ground powdered oats along with baking soda.

Use a sieve to aerate the flours along with baking soda and salt in a bowl.
Take a separate bowl, add honey.
 Add oil to the honey bowl.

Mix green tea with hot milk and add it to the oil-honey mix. Green tea is optional. It hardly makes a difference in the recipe. However, if you are interested. Do not forget to allow 1 tsp of green tea to sit in hot milk for 5 minutes. I was in a hurry, so mixed it and instantly added it to the oil mix. Brewing it with milk will make a difference for sure.
Whisk the wet ingredients for eggless graham crackers.

Mix wet and dry ingredients.
 Use your hand to gather all ingredients. PLEASE DO NOT KNEAD. You do not want gluten formation here. With gluten formation, you will end up getting chewy cookies. So avoid kneading. The purpose here is to collect everything into a ball or log.
 Here is what we aim at getting. If you want, you may refrigerate the log covered in a parchment paper for 30 minutes. I halved the log into two and baked one batch right away, while refrigerated the other half. The result is almost the same, though the refrigerated batch will give you an extra crispy layer.
 Roll out the dough with a rolling pin (belan). Make sure you roll out thin rotis. But do not make these too thin, else they might burn quickly in the oven.
 Cut into rectangular shapes with a knife or pizza cutter or any cookie cutter. Make insertions with a fork.
Bake for 18-20 minutes at 170 degrees.  Oven temperature settings vary from one machine to another. So you know your appliance better. Keep an eye on your graham crackers, as they will brown quickly due to honey. Do not overbrown. The thinner the crust, the lesser the time for baking. So keep an eye on your bakes when they are inside the oven. Set them for 15 mts first. If they look unbaked, you may bake them longer for a couple of minutes extra.

When your baked beauties are done, allow them to cool on a cooling rack, so that they become crispy and then there is no stopping you from munching on these wholesome wholegrain graham crackers no egg, no sugar, no butter. What more could you ask for?

A first look at these cookies, and dad said, these reminded him of cookies he used to have a couple of decades ago. When I revealed the ingredients, he was happy to munch on these beauties and was all praise for his daughter. 

Enjoy munching on these eggless wheat cookies guilt free!

    1. Yes, you may. But try to ensure that jaggery is whisked very well with the oil so that it doesn't ooze in the oven. Hope that helps.
