Tararua Biscuits

READY IN: 25mins
Recipe by snoopy_is_cute7

A high energy, high protein biscuit, originally designed for disaster relief. The biscuits keep well over a period of time if stored properly. Be careful though, they're jaw breakers!

Overall I thought this recipe was pretty cool. The biscuits come out really well, they keep well even if you just throw them in storage bags and they actually taste pretty good. The cooking time wasn't even close to right though. I had to cook them on about 350 for about 10 minutes to get the biscuits to turn brown and then another couple hours at 150 to get them to the dehydrated stage.
