These simple and easy 8-ingredient Animal Crackers are the ultimate snack. You’d never know they're whole grain, gluten free, sugar free, dairy free, and vegan!


  • 120g (1 cup) Oat Flour
  • 90g (½ cup) Ground Corn Flakes (I used Erewhon®)
  • ½ cup  Granulated Erythritol
  • 1 tsp Double-Acting Baking Powder
  • ¼ tsp Salt
  • ¼ cup Unsweetened Vanilla Almond Milk (room temperature)
  • 56g (¼ cup) Coconut Oil (melted)
  • 2 tsp Vanilla Extract
  • 1 tsp Liquid Stevia Extract


  • Preheat your oven to 350 degrees Fahrenheit and line 2 cookie sheets with parchment paper.
  • In a small bowl, whisk together the oat flour, ground corn flakes (should be ~3 cups of corn flakes before grinding), erythritol, baking powder, and salt.
  • In a stand mixer bowl with beater attachment, add the coconut oil, almond milk, vanilla extract, and stevia extract.  Mix on low speed until completely mixed.
  • Dump the dry ingredients into the stand mixer and mix until completely mixed (it should be slightly crumbly, but if you grab a handful, it should easily compact into a ball).
  • Roll ⅓ of the dough in between two silicone baking sheets until ~¼" thick.  Use animal cookie cutters to punch shapes into the dough, then push them out of the cutters onto the prepared cookie sheets.  Keep re-rolling the dough until all the dough is used up.
  • Bake for ~11 minutes, or until the cookies are golden brown.  Let cool on the pan.  Serve and enjoy!  Keeps for ~5 days.
