Christmas Dog Treats
For the basic recipe you will need:
- 260g Wholewheat flour
- For a WGF alternative try Gram Flour instead
- ½ tablespoon Coconut oil
- 1 Egg – beaten
- 1 stock cube – choose your own flavour
- 100 ml hot water
- Preheat your oven to 180c/Fan 160c or gas mark 4
- Dissolve the stock cube into the water
- Place all ingredients into a bowl and mix all together to make a dough
- Knead for 2 mins
- Turn out onto a floured surface and roll to an even thickness of about ¼ inch
- Cut out your treats with your chosen cutter – we think stars or bones look really cute – but your dog won’t mind what shape they are!
- Place onto a baking tray lined with baking parchment
- Bake until golden – check after 20 mins
- The treats must be completely cold before sealing in an airtight container…..they’ll keep for 4 months, but will probably be gobbled up before then!
Be creative – you can skip the stock cube and add:
- Marmite – this makes your biscuits super tasty and it is naturally gluten free with lots of vitamins – just as 2 teaspoons to your recipe
- Grated cheese – just add 100g of grated cheese (or a mix of cheddar and parmesan) to your recipe – but bear in mind that these are higher calorie treats
- Cranberries – great for urinary health, add 25g of chopped, dried unsweetened cranberries added to the cheese and cut into star shapes make fabulous Christmassy treats!
- Herbs – you can add 2tablespoons of Parsley and Mint to your recipe – no promises but these can help to freshen breath
- Fennel – you can add ¼ teaspoon to give a pleasant aniseed flavor and aid digestion
- Ginger – you can add 1 tablespoon of grated fresh ginger to give a nice spicy lemony flavor and is well known for its stomach settling properties
You should NEVER add
- Grapes or Raisins
- Macadamia nuts
