Crunchy Dog BonesThese crunchy treats are great for your dog's dental health. They are wheat free and high in protein. Keep them on hand for occasional rewards.

Makes about 4 dozen small treats.

Ingredients:

  • 2 Tbsp "Bacos" (bacon-flavored soy bits) (optional)
  • 1 c soy flour
  • 1/2 c rice flour
  • 1/3 c vegetable oil
  • 1/3 c creamy peanut butter
  • 1/4 c nonfat plain yogurt or sour cream
  • 2 eggs

Directions:

  1. Preheat oven to 250 degrees F.
  2. Grind "Bacos" in spice mill until powdery.
  3. In a large bowl, stir together all ingredients. When blended, knead in bowl for one or two minutes. Allow to stand 15 minutes.
  4. Roll or pat dough out until it is about 1/3 inch thick. Cut out small (1 inch) bone shapes or simple rectangles. Place half on each or two large un-greased baking sheets.
  5. Bake 40 minutes. Midway during baking time, remove baking sheets from oven and turn the treats over with a spatula. Place back in oven, exchanging rack positions of baking sheets (higher to lower, etc).
  6. Cool completely on paper toweling to remove excess oil. Place the amount to be used within a week in an uncovered bowl at room temperature. Cover and refrigerate any extras until needed.
