Weekend Sweets: Healthy Graham Crackers

I LOVE graham crackers and so does Ada, but they're not great for you, so I decided to try to find a healthier alternative. These are SO good. They're a little bit spicy, perfect for the fall. I got this great recipe here and changed it just a smidge by adding ground cloves.
1 C wheat flour
1 1/2 C flour
1/2 C dark brown sugar
1/2 t salt
1 t cinnamon
1/8 t ground cloves
1 t baking soda
1/2 C butter (chilled and cubed)
1/4 C honey
1/4 C water

Step 1: Preheat oven to 350. Mix flours, brown sugar, salt, cinnamon, cloves and baking soda.

Step 2: Add cubed chilled butter to the mix and mix well. It will be very crumbly. Then add the honey and water until everything is well combined. At this point it will still be fairly crumbly, don't worry, it's normal!

Step 3: Remove the dough and shape it into a disk with your hands. Roll out the dough between two pieces of parchment paper to 1/4" thickness. Cut into crackers or fun shapes with cookie cutters.

Step 4: Bake on greased sheet for 15 minutes.

This makes a fairly large batch, so you can freeze some before you bake them. Freeze after step 3 in a ziploc and then remove and bake when you want more!
