DIY Basic Dog Treat Biscuits
Our home is owned by a blind, older than dirt toy poodle and a teenage mini pig. Yes, they both believe they are the most important members of the house. Perhaps we have had something to do with this since they are treated as one of the children.
LilyPad the poodle and Madeline the pig enjoy special treats and toys that hold treats. Problem? The store bought treats are #1 too hard for LilyPad to eat and #2 most contain products that we don’t want to give them.
So, we make them special treats. Their favorite is our Grits and Bacon breakfast bowls (just combine grits and crumbled bacon in a bowl – tough recipe)! Next would be the Oatmeal Bones Biscuits. They can be made in 30 minutes and only take 3 ingredients to make!
This recipe is for a basic dog treat biscuit. They are great plain or you can add any number of items to customize for your pet.
2 cups oats (regular or wheat flour works as well)
3/4 cup beef or chicken broth (or use 1 teaspoon granules and 3/4 cup hot water)
Preheat oven to 350 degrees
Combine all ingredients until well mixed (if using water and granules dissolve granules in water first)
If using a molded baking dish, fill lightly greased baking dish and bake for 30 minutes.
If cutting into shapes or slices, roll out on lightly floured board until ½ inch thick
Cut dog treats with cookie cutters or slice into small finger length loaves
Place dog treat pieces on lightly greased cookie sheet
Bake at 350 for 30 minutes
Optional Add In Goodies:
Peanut butter, Ground cooked meat, Wheat germ, Shredded cheese, Crumbled, cooked bacon, Diced fruit pieces
