I left out the yeast after the first batch went funny and would only burn not dry.
Have now made multiple batches for a fund-raiser. Easy to make and the dogs that have tried them cannot get enough of them.
I've substituted Hemp oil (needed to use some up), Parmesan cheese for the garlic (conflicting advice about whether dogs should or shouldn't have garlic) and rolled oats instead of Bulgar (no Bulgar on hand)and the biscuits went down fine style.
This recipe is excellent and using the bread maker to mix a heavy dough is pure genius. I, like the other reviewers tinkered with the recipe a bit. I substituted rolled oats for the bulgar/7 grain flour. I also threw in a bit of parmesan cheese instead of the garlic powder as I did not have any. My biscuits took a bit longer to baked than the recipe said- that is most likely a function of how thick you roll the biscuits. Once they were baked I simply turned the oven OFF and left the entire batch in the oven overnight. They turned out nice and crispy. the pups were pleased with the result. My dogs and I recommend you try these.
Great recipe! Added grated parm, and fresh cheddar. Dogs LOVED them!
