It is easy to make your own animal crackers with this simple recipe, you do need to process your own oats to get the best finish but it is worth it.
I think she might have meant 2 tablespoons of honey possibly! - 17 May 2009
I am not one to complain but there must be a misprint here...too much milk, not enough flour, not sweet enough. I used just a dash of milk, added 2 teaspoons of sugar and coated them in icing sugar after removing them from the oven as a last ditch attempt to improve their flavour. I don't think I'll be revisiting this recipe. - 17 May 2009
I'd give this 5 stars based on how mine turned out, but since I didn't follow the directions exactly, I'll tell you what I did do: I used Butter Buds instead of butter, so they'd be fat free. I used 3 Tbsp. honey instead of 2 tsp. And I added 1/2 tsp. each vanilla and almond extracts. Then I used 1/4 cup whole wheat flour with the 1/2 cup of all-purpose flour. I ended up with a sticky dough, so added more of each flour. The cookies came out puffy and YUMMY! Just enough sweet to satisfy my daughter, and I thougt they were great! My daughter likes to roll and decorate cookies, but I don't want sweets too often, so these are a great compromise. You could decorate them with colored peanut butter or Nutella. For breakfast, my daughter dunked her name (we have letter cutters) in syrup and icing left over from some Dunkables. We thought these were really fantastic! - 10 Mar 2006 (Review from Allrecipes USA and Canada)
