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.
graham crackers

Ingredients
1 cup- powdered oats
3/4 cup- whole wheat
2 tbsp- whole wheat bran (or add extra wheat flour instead)
4 tbsp- raw cane sugar/dry jaggery powder
2 tbsp- desi ghee (refirgerate ghee for an hour before using)
3 tbsp- olive oil
1/2 tsp- baking soda
3 tbsp- curd/milk
1 tbsp- roasted quinoa flour (optional)
2 tbsp- dehydrated milk/skimmed milk powder
pinch of salt

Process to make graham crackers at home without honey

Sift through all flours along with salt and baking soda.
Add cane sugar to it.
Add solid ghee and olive oil.
Start rubbing ghee-oil into the flour until everything looks like wet bread crumbs or until the wet ingredients look absorbed.
Add curd or milk and gather the ingredients into a ball or log.
Roll it out into thin crust/ not too thin though, else cookies might burn out.
Cut into rectangular pieces and insert the cookies with a fork.
Place on a greased baking tray at a distance from each other. Refrigerate for half an hour.
Preheat oven/convection to 170  degrees for 10 mts.
Bake/airfry for 15 mts or little longer at 170 degrees. I have airfried the cookies, which makes these an airfryer recipe.


Here's my previous attempt at sugarless graham crackers with honey.


Second Graham crackers recipe: This was my first attempt.
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 

graham cracker ingredients

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

gather dry ingredients for graham crackers
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.

Eggless Cake Without Raising Agents: A No Baking Powder, No Baking Soda Sponge Cake Recipe

When you are able to bake an eggless cake without raising agents, your happiness knows no bounds, right? This is exactly what I am in for today. What started as an experiment has worked out wonders for me.


I was trying to hone my cake baking skills while learning a few baking basics. Then struck this idea of baking a cake without baking powder or baking soda. A loved one is suffering from histamine sensitivity, and these chemical agents trigger urticaria, which gives me goosebumps. So I decided to go the other way round - baking an eggless cake without raising agents.

You need a light flour here - something that would effectively replace maida/all-purpose flour/refined flour/white flour. I remember one dhaba wala telling me once about how they replace maida sometimes - using a mix of jau and rice flour.

So this is exactly what I needed. This has given me one of the simplest yet tastiest cakes. Please do not change the flours, as I am unsure how any other flour would work here. I will…

Instant Aam Papad (Sada) With Jaggery: Sweet & Tangy Mango Slices

Aam papad has been a hot favorite since childhood. I do not remember how many times I have enjoyed these sweet & tangy mango sheets, though no one from my mom's side ever tried making them at home. After marriage, my mother in law, who is an awesome cook, made these savory & sweet mango pulp slices for me. I must tell that she makes the best mango pickle in the world - which is both sweet & sour. She made two buckets full for me after she found that I love aam achaar.

Who does not like sweet and tangy mango leather? Our generation has grown up relishing aam papad- wonder what all the present generation is missing out on! So this instant aam sada or papad recipe was born after my dear friend Poonam Bachhav had shared her aam papad post. Her post was the ultimate trigger for me to come up with my own instant Odia version. Poonam is the real Annapurna. I love the way she picks healthy ingredients to cook up deliciousness in the kitchen. Poonam blogs at Poonam Bachaav dot…
