Graham Cracker Chocolate Chip Cookies

Today we’re sharing the recipe for an absolutely delicious Graham Cracker Chocolate Chip Cookie.

All of the credit for this delicious Graham Cracker Chocolate Chip Cookie recipe belongs to Karli at Buns In My Oven, where we found her original graham cracker cookie recipe.  We were inspired to make this easy cookie recipe simply because we wanted to use up some graham cracker crumbs we had in our kitchen cabinet, before they went stale.

After one bite, we knew we wanted to share this Graham Cracker Chocolate Chip Cookie with all of you today. The graham crackers add a rich, sweet depth of flavor from the molasses that is baked into a graham cracker. The cookies have a light and crispy but still chewy texture that will keep tempting you back to the cookie jar!

How do you make Graham Cracker Chocolate Chip Cookies?

This recipe is a basic chocolate chip cookie—but totally transformed by swapping in graham cracker crumbs for some of the flour in the cookie batter.

You can actually buy boxes of graham cracker crumbs if you’d like—at the supermarket, or online here. Or, simply make the crumbs yourself by putting a stack of whole graham crackers in a food processor, pulsing until they are processed into uniform crumbs. (We needed about 2 ½ sleeves of graham crackers to make enough crumbs for this recipe.)

Then—mix up a chocolate chip cookie batter as you normally would: Cream butter and sugar together in a mixing bowl. We used half brown sugar and half granulated sugar—a minor difference from the original cookie recipe. (Either all brown sugar or half brown/half granulated sugar will work. Using the half brown/half granulated sugar as we did give our cookies a crispy but still chewy texture. I suspect using all brown sugar would give these cookies a softer, chewier texture. The choice is yours.)

Mix in eggs and vanilla extract, then dry ingredients including the graham cracker crumbs, all-purpose flour, baking soda and salt. Finally fold in chocolate chips and mix until the chocolate is evenly dispersed throughout the batter.

You’ll portion the batter out using a scoop onto a parchment lined cookie sheet, then bake.  This recipe made exactly three dozen cookies.

Graham Cracker Chocolate Chip Cookies

  • Author: A Family Feast
  • Prep Time: 10 minutes
  • Cook Time: 10 minutes
  • Total Time: 20 minutes
  • Yield: 36 cookies
  • Category: cookies
  • Method: baking
  • Cuisine: American


3 cups graham cracker crumbs (2 ½ to 3 sleeves of graham crackers, crushed)

1 ½ cups all-purpose flour

1 teaspoon baking soda

½ teaspoon salt

1 cup (2 sticks) unsalted butter, softened to room temperature

1 cup granulated sugar

1 cup brown sugar

1 tablespoon vanilla extract

2 large eggs

2 cups semi-sweet chocolate chips


Preheat oven to 350 degrees F. Line cookie sheet(s) with parchment paper. Set aside.

In a bowl, whisk together graham cracker crumbs, flour, baking soda and salt. Set aside.

In a large mixing bowl, beat butter and sugars on medium-high speed until light and creamy.

Add vanilla and eggs to butter mixture and beat again until well combined.

With the mixer on low speed, gradually add the flour mixture to the wet mixture, increasing speed as needed. Mix only until just combined.

Fold in chocolate chips, mixing to evenly distribute. (The cookie dough may feel drier than most other chocolate chip cookie batters, but it should hold together if you press it with your fingers.)

Using a 1 ounce scoop, place balls of cookie dough onto the prepared cookie sheets.

Bake 8 to 10 minutes. The edges of the cookies will be slightly golden and the centers still soft.

Cool cookies on the cookie sheet for 5 minutes, then transfer to a cooling rack to finish cooling. (The cookies will firm up as they cool.)

    Does the recipe truly use crumbs or if you have graham crackers to crunch up do you pulse to flour consistency?

      Hi Jocelyn – You can make your own crumbs using graham crackers but only pulse to form crumbs, not a fine flour consistency.

    I am an average baker at my best . I as always had a few mishaps. I realized I had made a midnight snack of my last sleeve of grahams. I just knew I had more. So I broke up a graham cracker pie crust I found leftover from Thanksgiving. I then dumped flour in bowl with butter and sugar…Wrong. But I soldiered on and mixed all but chocolate chips,at once. Those I remembered to fold in correctly. My first batch, scoops to large,are baking so we wait. Baking takes patience and detail I simply don’t have but….my cookies are still delicious and the texture is perfect for milk dipping. Thanks for the great recipe.

      Glad you liked it Carmen and cook hack using the crust. I’ll need to try that some day.

    Read the concerns about the dough spreading too much. Baked the entire batch in a sheet pan to make squares.
    350 F for 20-25 minutes. Delicious and easy peasy

    These cookies are scrumptious, probably the best we’ve ever made. Thanks!

    I was looking for a recipe to use somethings up and I was so happy to find something with graham crackers besides a crust.
    Great taste with a slight twist. The hint of cinnamon was nice. I got almost 4 dozen and had to bake almost 11 minutes. Will make again. Thank you.
