Makes 60 2" x 3/4" sized rectangles. These are totally corn free, refined-sugar free, whole grain and high protein dog biscuits with the winning combination of peanut butter and bacon! Wheat free except for the high-fatty-acid wheat germ, which helps keep the skin and coat healthy and eyes bright. If your dog's allergic to wheat, use rice or spelt bran, or more ground flaxseed.
