This homemade animal crackers recipe was sent to us by John from Winnipeg Canada. For the first step you will want to grind your oats in a blender until they are almost a powder. Add the ground oats to a mixing bowl, along with the table salt, brown sugar, whole grain teff flour, and baking soda. Sift these ingredients together until the mixture is nice and even. Next cut in the unsalted real butter, while keeping the pieces at roughly pea size. Moving along, next add in the honey and liquid buttermilk, then vigorously stir the ingredients together until a firm animal cracker dough forms. Once your dough has been created, place it in a sealable container and then slide it into the refrigerator to chill for one hour. While your dough is chilling, preheat your oven to 400 degrees Fahrenheit, or 200 degrees Celsius. Next take out your dough and roll it across a clean floured surface. You want the finished dough thickness to be about one eighth of an inch. At this point you can take out your animal cracker cutters, and begin making a variety of different shapes.
