|The crackers after being baked|
1/2 cup oatmeal (ground in a blender until fine)
6 TBSP whole wheat flour
6TBSP white flour
1/4 tsp salt
1/4 tsp baking soda
Add 1 TBSP honey and stir well
Add 1/4 cup softened butter and use your hands to work the butter into the flour mixture until you have a crumbly, uniform mixture.
Add 1/4 cup buttermilk (I used regular milk with a splash of lemon juice added)
Turn onto a floured surface and roll very thin. My dough was pretty sticky, so I needed to incorporate a lot of flour to make it workable.
Cut out with cookie cutters, animal ones if you have them.
Bake at 400 degrees for 9 minutes (until slightly brown around the edges)
I thought these crackers turned out really well! They had an interesting texture from the oatmeal, and the honey gave them just a little sweetness. One recipe made about 50 little cookies for us, but I think you would get a higher yield if you weren't working with a messy one-year-old ; )
