Substitues for graham flour?

Is there anything I can substitute for graham flour? I want to make my own graham crackers, but no store around me carries graham flour. (We have a Wal-Mart, Hy-Vee, and Fareway)

thanks!

Re: Substitues for graham flour?

Well, I just did a search. This is what I found:


A fully correct substitute for it would be a mix of white flour, wheat bran, and wheat germ in the ratio found in whole wheat. Wheat comprises approximately 83% endosperm, 14.5% bran, and 2.5% germ by mass.[1] For sifted all-purpose white flour, wheat bran, and wheat germ having densities of 125, 50, and 80 grams/cup, respectively, one cup of graham flour is approximately equivalent to 84 g (~2/3 cup) white flour, 15 g (slightly less than 1/3 cup) wheat bran, and 2.5 g (1.5 teaspoons) wheat germ.

Plain whole wheat flour can also be used as a substitute in recipes, but the resulting baked goods' textures will differ from that of examples where graham flour was used.

Our Hy-vee carries graham flour in the natural section with the GF flours-does your store have a natural section? If you talk to a manager, they will also order it for you.

That said, I use half white flour and half wheat flour and that seems to be a good consistency for us (whole wheat was too grainy).

Whole wheat flour is a good substitute. Here's the ones I made. It has a video with it too, I used butter instead of shorting to avoid the trans fats

I also use whole wheat white flour.

I usually roll out the dough after chilling and let the kids cut shapes with cookie cutters. How can you resist an airplain cracker!!

Graham Flour is basically Whole wheat flour that has had the Bran sifted out and then added back in. (i think that is what I read somewhere) so a coursely ground whole wheat flour or some regular whole wheat flour and some wheat germ.
