I just love Weelicious! I can always find healthy food options for the entire family there. I really like the fact that she makes many (if not, almost all) of her kids' snacks from scratch. I have been wanting to try this one of hers for a long time, and I finally got around to doing it. My, oh, my! It will be hard to ever buy graham crackers from the store ever again! And this recipe is so easy and uses the most simple ingredients that most of us already have in our kitchen - so why not make something healthy for your kids that they will love?!

Let's get started...

 Put the flour, brown sugar, salt, cinnamon, and baking soda either in a food processor, or a bowl to mix.

After mixing the dry ingredients, pulse or mix in the butter until it looks like coarse sand.

 Mix in the honey and water until everything is combined. Take out dough and shape into a flat disk, and place between 2 sheets of parchment paper. Roll out dough until about 1/4 in thick and cut out shapes. Bake on parchment lined baking sheet for 12 - 15 mins. Cool and serve.

This made my entire house smell of cinnamon deliciousness! 
These graham crackers were a huge hit with the kids, so we will be making more of these yummy treats :)
