Garlicky Dog Biscuits

These biscuits are vegetarian, and dogs love them for their garlicky vegetable flavors. I make them for my children's adorable Teacup Chihuahua, Eddie.

Makes about 1 pint tiny biscuits.

Ingredients:

  • 5 Tbsp pureed carrots
  • 5 Tbsp pureed green beans
  • 3/4 c whole wheat flour
  • 1/2 c rice flour
  • 1/4 cup miller's bran
  • 2 Tbsp nutritional yeast
  • 1 Tbsp garlic powder
  • 2 Tbsp vegetable oil
  • 2 Tbsp water as needed

Directions:

  1. Preheat oven to 325 degrees F and lightly oil a large baking sheet.
  2. In a large bowl, combine the wheat and rice flours, bran, nutritional yeast and garlic powder. Mix in the pureed vegetables and oil.
  3. Use hands to knead as a stiff dough, adding a tablespoon or two of the water if needed.
  4. On a lightly floured surface, roll out dough to 1/4-inch thickness. Cut out treats using your favorite cookie cutter. (For a small dog such as my children's teacup chihuahua, Eddie, I use the small side of a melon baller to form little round buttons.) Place biscuits as close together as you like, as they do not swell.
  5. Re-roll dough scraps and cut until all dough is used.
  6. Bake on the prepared baking sheet for 15 minutes.
  7. Turn off the oven and leave treats in the cooling oven for 2 hours.
  8. Store in an air tight container for up to several weeks.
