    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.

    Serves: 24 

    • 1/2 cup (40g) rolled oats
    • 3/4 cup (100g) plain flour
    • 1/4 teaspoon baking soda
    • 1/4 teaspoon salt
    • 60g butter
    • 2 teaspoons honey
    • 1/4 cup (60ml) buttermilk

    Preparation:30min  ›  Cook:10min  ›  Ready in:40min 

    1. Preheat oven to 200 degrees C. Using a blender or food processor, grind oats until fine.
    2. Put the blended oats in a medium bowl and sift in the flour, baking soda and salt. Cut in the butter using a pastry blender or your fingers until the butter lumps are smaller than peas. Stir in the honey and buttermilk to form a stiff dough.
    3. On a lightly floured surface, roll the dough out to 3mm in thickness. Cut into desired shapes with cookie cutters and place biscuits on to ungreased baking trays 2.5cm apart.
    4. Bake for 5 to 7 minutes, or until edges are lightly browned. Remove biscuits from baking trays and allow to cool on wire racks.

    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
