Today is National Animal Crackers Day. Now this is a food holiday I can embrace! What a great excuse to eat that beloved cookie from childhood, right? Here are six recipes for Gluten-Free Animal Crackers from some of your favorite gluten-free bloggers plus a cheater “recipe.” (I like cheater recipes!)
As noted below, some are these recipes are “more free” (like dairy free and/or egg free) so there should be some good options here for you!
Grab some animal cookie cutters (here and here) for the future if you don’t have any cookie cutters on hand that will work. Any animal cookie cutters will do though. I love the idea of being able to bake animal cookies that you can’t find in any of the ready-made boxes of cookies. Squirrel cookies, panda cookies, moose cookies … whatever animal cookies we want!
