Home Made Dog Biscuit Recipe

I have had this dog biscuit recipe for years and have changed it a bit over time. It is easy and fun to make. It would be a good family project. Snickers likes this treat so much, she pretends to have to go outside to do her business just so she can come in to get a treat. Who's training who?

Dog Biscuit Recipe

  • 1 pkg dry yeast
  • 1/4 cup warm water
  • 1 cup warm chicken broth
  • 2 tblsp molasses
  • 1 3/4 - 2 cups flour, divided
  • 1 1/4 cup rye flour
  • 1/4 cup flax seed, ground
  • 1 cup cracked or bulgur wheat
  • 1/2 cup cornmeal
  • 1/2 cup nonfat dry milk 2 tsp garlic powder 1 tsp salt
  • 1 beaten egg
  • 1 tblsp milk

Dissolve yeast in water. Stir in broth and molasses. Add 1 cup flour, rye flour, flax seed, cracked oats, cornmeal, dry milk, garlic and salt. mix well. Preheat oven to 300 degrees. On floured surface, knead in remaining flour. Roll out half at a time, to 3/8 inch thickness. (the secret to rolling it out is to reserve some of the flour to sprinkle generously on your rolling surface and the top of your dough to keep it from sticking to your surface or your rolling pin). Cut into 1 x 4 inch biscuits (I cut into 1 x 1 inch biscuits because Snickers is a little dog and I don't want her to get overweight). Place on ungreased baking sheets. Combine egg and milk and use to brush tops of biscuits. Repeat with remaining dough. Bake 45 minutes. Turn off heat and let dry overnight in the oven. This makes two cookie sheet full of biscuits.
