From google:
Wheat and Dairy Free Rusks

2 cups Rice Flour
2 Tablespoons Nuttelex (see below)
1/2 cup breastmilk (or formula) (or water)
sift flour and rub nuttelex until mixture resembles bread crumbs. Mix in milk to make a soft dough. Turn onto floured board and knead. Roll out dough into long thin rolls and cut. Place on lightly greased tray and bake in moderate oven for 20 mins turn and bake until crisp and dried out. Store in air tight container.
Because I haven't made these, (or heard of nuttelex) I googled and found this ~ & am sure you'll find a NZ equivalent:
NUTTELEX contains only the finest pure vegetable oils which have a balance of Omega 3 and Omega 6 fatty acids, are rich in polyunsaturates, high in linoleic acid and are valuable sources of Vitamins A, D and E. Over 6 years ago we began using Canola oil made from Australian grown seed specifically because it was GM free. We have been a 100% Australian-owned, family company for over 65 years and NUTTELEX is the oldest brand of table spread on the Australian market. First manufactured in 1932, NUTTELEX has always been produced from vegetable oils and has never contained animal fats or cholesterol. Our spread is ideal for vegetarians, vegans, people on special diets (such as gluten and lactose intolerance) and those seeking a healthy spread for their family.
NUTTELEX is salt reduced and:
Free from Milk or dairy in any form
Free from Animal products in any form
Free from Egg or egg products
Free from Nuts or nut products
Free from Lactose or sucrose
Free from Cholesterol
Free from Gluten (eg wheat, rye, barley, malt)
Free from Artificial colours or flavours
Free from Yeast
Free from Preservatives
Free from Calcium
Free from Soy in any form
Good luck, let us know how they turn out.

Nuttelex just sounds like a margarine. au/nuttelex-original/

You're right accroul, but the O. P. will need to do some label reading to make sure it's dairy free.
