Dog treats/biscuits that are safe & easy to make! Can improve bad breath. I have been told to make & sell these. Enjoy, I know all of the dogs that have tried these have! We usually use cookie cutters for fun shapes.
- 3 cups whole wheat flour (can use all-purpose)
- 1 tablespoon baking powder
- 1 teaspoon baking soda
- 1⁄2 cup vegetable shortening
- 1 cup plain yogurt
- 2 tablespoons honey
- 2 tablespoons chopped mint leaves, fresh
- Preheat oven to 425 deg.
- Using a mixer; combine flour, baking powder & soda in the bowl.
- Add shortening slowly and process until it resembles cornmeal.
- Add yogurt and mix until combined.
- Add honey & parsley and mix through.
- Roll out for even cooking. Can use cutters for shapes or just cut into bars.
- Place on cookie sheet & bake 10-14min, or until they start to brown.
- Allow to come to room temp then place in airtight containers &/or refrigerate.
- Will last at room temp for approx 6 days, keep in fridge for longevity.
- I recommend 1/2" by 1" bars for small & med dogs or 1" by 2" for large breeds. Even smaller pieces are great for training!
The ease of the recipe was fine, easy to put together. I didn't get mint as it's super expensive so used parsley instead. But my main problem was that there was no directions as to how thin to roll the biscuits. I rolled to 1/4 inch the first time and they puffed so much! I even tried one and it could have passed for a regular biscuit that just needed salt! I rolled them MUCH thinner for the next pans. I made a double batch as I am selling them at a bake sale this weekend (we are including animal treats as fun) it barely made it in my standard mixer. If you want crunch then roll to at least an 1/8 of an inch, even less!
These dog treats were very easy to make and were enjoyed by my furry friends! I have 3 pups of various sizes and ages and all loved these treats and wanted more. They did seem to provide at least a temporary breath fix :) - thanks for sharing your recipe!
