Graham Cracker Chocolate Chip Cookies
These chewy cookies filled with gooey bits of chocolate are no ordinary chocolate chip cookie — because they’re made with graham crackers. Any fan of s’mores is well aware that graham crackers and melty chocolate are a match made in heaven, so we don’t know why we never thought of combining them into a cookie before. These unforgettable cookies are crispy on the outside, soft on the inside, and just begging to be dunked into a glass of milk.
You have the recipe on the back of the bag of chocolate chips memorized at this point, don’t you? Well this cookie recipe is every bit as easy. In fact, it’s almost exactly the same, except that you crush your graham crackers into crumbs that infuse every bite with that honey graham taste and texture that reminds you of your childhood. You may never make normal chocolate chip cookies again!
We do recommend that you chill the dough for a few minutes before baking, so here’s an obscure history lesson to keep you occupied while you wait: did you know that graham crackers were named after Sylvester Graham, a big name in the 19th century temperance movement who advocated for dietary reform? Graham flour is a kind of whole wheat flour that hasn’t had the nutritious wheat bran and wheat germ removed, and it’s what graham crackers are made from. So while yes, these are still cookies — with all of the butter, sugar, and chocolate chips to prove it — when you bite into your third one in a row, just tell yourself the graham flour makes them a teensy bit more wholesome than your average choco chipper.
We just got a crazy idea — what if you made s’mores with these cookies instead of graham crackers? Someone try it and let us know how amazing it turns out!
