The honey graham dough I made over the weekend was a sort of “healthier” version of shortbread. I added fresh ginger to the recipe and sprinkled demerara sugar over the tops before baking them off. Honestly, I would have been happy stopping there, but remember the mallow bits? I melted some chocolate over the stove in my homemade double-broiler, drizzled it over the grahams, and stuck the mallow bits on top. They turned out to be easy-to-package, simple self-contained s’mores.
Honey-Ginger Grahams, adapted from Cooks.com
2 C whole wheat flour
1 C unbleached flour
1 t baking powder
1/2 t baking soda
1/2 C packed brown sugar
1/2 C butter
1/3 C honey
2 t freshly grated ginger
1 t vanilla
1/2 C milk
Sift together first 4 ingredients & set aside. Cream together brown sugar and butter until smooth. Add honey, ginger, and vanilla. Beat until fluffy. Add dry mix to creamed mixture, alternately with milk. Chill dough. Roll out onto well floured surface, cut into shapes, and score cookies with a fork. Bake in preheated 350-degree oven for about 12 minutes. Let cool on wire rack.
The ancient Greeks maintained that the seat of the soul was in the stomach. If I had a cookie cutter in the shape of a stomach, I would use it.

And a verrrrrry sweet breakfast with milk!
yes, good dunkers!
These really look amazing. I also like your tidbit of information about the stomach and totally agree with you. A stomach-shaped cookie cutter would definitely be my weapon of choice for something that looks this good. 🙂
I foresee many new grahams in my future 🙂
These look so delicious. Definitely going to make them for Valentine’s Day!
oh my gosh! dream come true!
next batch – sending some your way!
love s’mores and it’s always great to find a recipe has the same flavors but less mess.
thanks! it’s true, not-so-messy s’mores… 🙂
Love this idea. Nice that even if I messed up it would still look nice.
they were fun to do, too! not so much pressure on perfection here, because the ingredients are already perfect!
