Homemade Graham Cracker Crumbs

I needed graham cracker crumbs for the Smore Muffins. I had made graham crackers over the weekend, but they did not come out dry/crunchy like a store bought cracker would be. So I decided to experiment a little bit and was successful in drying them out and getting crumbs!

Break up the graham crackers into small pieces. Spread on cookie sheet. Place in oven at 250 and cook for about 20 mins stirring after 10.

*I started with a low oven as I didn't want to burn them. Perhaps you can increase the temp and they wouldn't need to cook as long. But I figured slow and steady would be best for experimenting. They still had a soft texture to them, but once they cooled they were perfectly crispy and crushed beautifully. I think if you were to cook the graham crackers longer in the original recipe they would become dryer. I think you want more of the color than the texture.


  1. I like the idea of homemade graham crackers and the muffins sound and look GREAT!!!

  2. I can't wait to try making homemade graham crackers -- they are on my list!

    By the way... those white wheat dinner rolls... they have a texture much like store bought :)
