Healthy Homemade Graham Crackers
My family is quite small, and by small I mean there are four of us. Yes, four… my mom, my dad, my older sister and then me.
While I attend university across the country from my family, my sister is also in college while completing an internship.
While my father works full-time and drives a long commute every day, my mother constantly runs errands and keeps each of our lives in order.
Even though school has ended for the summer, we still have hectic schedules and family time doesn’t come around very often… family time isn’t “penciled in” like an appointment or checkup. Family is the most valuable thing one should cherish, but oftentimes it isn’t made a priority.
This may sound silly, but I truly realized this when I was baking these Healthy Homemade Whole Wheat Graham Crackers.
The fragrant scent was literally bursting out of the oven, to the point where I just wanted to rip them out of the oven halfway through and eat them in partially baked form! But I was patient.
The aroma was so enchanting that it drew everyone in the house together in the kitchen. And what a comforting feeling it was–something sweet baking in the oven, the family all together, chatting away in anticipation for the soon-to-come treat. Standing there in the kitchen with my family, I stood back. This was an experience I found to be rare, an experience very worthwhile. We all have jam-packed schedules filled right to the brim, but it would mean so much if we took the time to be with the people we love and care about, even if it’s only for a couple of minutes.
Get ready a little faster, hug a little longer, and leave a little later. Every second counts. Make these Healthy Homemade Whole Wheat Graham Crackers, and make some memories
Because everyone slices their crackers differently, this nutrition label may not be accurate for you. I made the label for the first batch of crackers I made (which made 22 large crackers), but in the next batch I got 34. Overall though, this is a nutrition label I can be proud of and the ingredient list is 100% natural and healthy.
