Pet treats

February 8, 2013

You can make these for cats, horses, whatever. Just change the size and shape of the cookie cutter.

 

Home Made Doggie Cookies

 

2 1/2 cups Whole Wheat Flour

1/2 cup Non Fat Dry Milk Powder

1/2 tsp salt

6 TBSP Butter

1 egg

1 cup cold water

1 tsp nutritional yeast

3 tsp Wheat Germ

 

Cream butter and egg until well blended. Sift flour, milk powder, salt, yeast and wheat germ together. Add flour mix and cold water alternately to butter and egg mixture. Knead 2-3 minutes. Preheat oven to 350 degrees. Roll dough out on a lightly floured surface to 1/4 – 1/2 inch thick. Dip cookie cutter in flour and cut out dog biscuits. Bake at 350 degrees for 25-30 minutes.

 

 

Whole Grain Doggie Cookies

 

2 cups whole grain flour- whole wheat, rice, 12 grain, whatever you’ve got

1/2 cup cornmeal

1 tsp salt free herbal seasonings such as Mrs Dash or 2 TBSP parsley, chives or pet’s favorite herb.

2 gloves garlic, minced

1 egg, beaten

1/4 cup vegetable oil

1/2 cup liquid- water, milk, vegetable, chicken or beef stock.

1 tsp bonemeal – NOT from garden supply! Get it from a health food store.

 

Preheat oven to 350 degrees. Mix flour, cornmeal, bonemeal, garlic, herbal seasonings and/or herbs together. Add the beaten egg, oil and liquid. Mix well ( a food processor or an electric mixer works well here). If the batter is ever too stiff, add a little liquid. For dog treats: roll out on a floured surface until 1/4 inch thick. Cut into desired shapes using any cookie cutter, a dog bone-shaped one is nice. Place the treats on a cookie sheet about 1/2″ apart. Bake the treats for 1/2 an hour or until golden brown. When finished baking, turn the oven off and leave the treats in the oven another 1/2 hour to harden.

Makes about 4 dozen 4″ dogbone shaped treats.
