"This is a delicious and yummy cracker passed down from my Swedish grandmother. It is a great and economical alternative to store-bought crackers and processed snacks. Big hit with kids, and a great way to sneak some healthier snacks into their everyday diet. Fast, easy, and great results!"

  1. Preheat the oven to 400 degrees F (200 degrees C).
  2. Mix oats, flour, baking powder, and salt together in a bowl. Fold in butter. Mix in milk until dough comes together in a ball.
  3. Divide dough into thirds. Roll out very thinly on a floured surface using a Swedish or notched rolling pin. Cut into 2-inch pieces and place on a baking sheet.
  4. Bake crackers until tops are just very slightly golden, 10 to 15 minutes. Cool on a wire rack.


  • Cook's Notes:
  • You can use a regular rolling pin and score each cracker with a fork.
  • Baking time varies according to thickness. Store in an airtight tin. Yummy for breakfast with a little butter or jam, great as an after school snack with with cheese, or use as a dip for hummus or guacamole.
