Intro: Homemade Dog Cookies
I make cookies for my dogs. They are super easy since Rex or Regina really won't care if they're perfect or not. When compared with gourmet treats these are quite inexpensive and they are chalk-a-block full of luv! Here is the nice & basic recipe.
Step 1: Ingredients List
2 cups flour*
2/3 cup corn meal
1/2 cup sesame or flax seeds
1/4 cup milk
1/2 cup chicken broth (avoid sodium heavy powders or ones with onions)
2 tbsp olive oil
1 clove garlic, minced**
* Choose what works for you, your vet and your pet. Options can include: whole wheat (used here) or gluten-free grains such as rice, buckwheat, or even grain-free flours such as chickpea.
** Ppl are divided about dogs and garlic. The internet has lots of info on this. Google it and again, choose what works for you, your vet & your pet.
Step 2: Mix
Mix dry ingredients in a large bowl. In a second bowl, beat 2 eggs, milk, oil and garlic together. Mix wet into dry well. Let sit for 15 min.
Step 3: Roll & Cut
Roll dough out (1/4" or 6mm thick) on a lightly floured surface. Cut with cookie cutters. Beat remaining egg and brush on tops of biscuits.
Step 4: Bake
Place cookies on a lightly greased cookie sheet (Silpat or parchment paper ok here too) and bake at 350 F for 25-35 min. or until brown. Remove and allow to cool. Store in an airtight container.
