I 'rn out of dog biscuits and having 3 doggies I needed some fast. 2 @ are recently rescued so treats for training are vital. I looked up several recipes but missed 1 or more ingredients in most. Here is what I came up with and all 3 gobbled them up and are waiting as I type near the stove for batch 2. Minimal fat for the dogs and super easy and inexpensive for me. edited 2/11 seeoption below. My Sassy Girl needs to lose a few pounds like mama so I was always breking up these bisuits to meet her needs and be safe. Therefore I rolled them and used a pizza cutter to make 1/1 in squares. Now Sassy can enjoy several per day and not broken down. I
- 1 1⁄2 cups wheat flour (prefer organic)
- 1 tablespoon dry milk
- 1⁄2 cup oatmeal
- 1 cup hot water
- 1 tablespoon beef, granules (no salt preferred)
- Mix dry ingredients then add in hot water.
- Mix with a fork or spoon until all ingredients blended (similiar to lumpy cake batter).
- Spoon by 1/2 tsp onto a greased/sprayed cookie sheet.
- Bake in oven at 350 for 15 min, let cool and then store if you can in an airtight container. Depending on size I made min a quarter size mound reduce or increase cook time).
- feel free to add in mashed leftover veggies that are safe for your beloveds. (no onions).
- Note- you can add more flour if too wet by TBSP to get a good consistency.
- --If you have beef broth already made use that and do not add in the water. When winter comes I keep a standby of chicken and beef broth in the freezer.
- - 15 min per cycle/cookie sheet.
- edited 2/15/11 optional.
- roll out the dough onto a cookie sheet and bake approx 8 min or until cooked through for a soft cookie consistancy.
- remove from oven and use a pizza cutter to cut 1x1 in squares.
- for crisper biscuits return to oven for 4- 5 minute.
- for soft like my babies like do not return to oven, let cool and then put into a container.
I made these with beef stock instead of granules and opted to bake for several minutes and then cut in to very small pieces and bake a little longer. My dog was patrolling the kitchen after her first taste - two paws up.
I happened to catch the review from "Jubes" just this morning and since the treat container is getting low I decided to whip up a batch for my beagle, Snickers. She loved these and they were just too easy to make. I added some leftover carrots that I mashed up and then dropped them in blobs onto the cookie sheet. My dog isn't one of those fancy sorts that needs cute little shapes, no...she just gobbles them up and looks at me for more! Thanks Connie!
Reviewed for Aus/NZ Forum Recipe Swap December 2011- sorry for posting my review so late. These were easy to make and use regular pantry ingredients. My Cindy (Maltese) really enjoyed these doggie treats. 5 stars from CIndy
