Dog Biscuits – for your best friend
I got this all-natural recipe for dog biscuits from the folks at Rodale, a great resource for healthy home and garden practices. It’s a fun recipe for kids to work on, and it makes a great gift for any dog owner friends.
2½ cups / 625 g flour
¾ cup / 185 g dry milk powder
½ cup / 125 mL vegetable oil
2 Tablespoons /30 g brown sugar
2 vegetable bouillon cubes, dissolved in ¾ cup / 185 mL boiling water
½ cup / 125 g carrots, green beans, apples, or blueberries
1 egg (optional)
In a large bowl, mix all ingredients and form into a ball. On a flour-dusted cutting board, roll out the dough to about ¼-inch thick.
Cut with bone-shaped cookie cutter or any cutter shape your pet will like.
Dehydrate at the highest setting—145 to 155 degrees— or bake in oven at low heat (approx 200F /100C ) until done, approximately 6 to 8 hours (overnight works well).
