My aunt, uncle, and cousin recently came to visit my husband and I, and they gave us a wonderful dog biscuit cookbook by Bubba Rose entitled Organic Dog Biscuit Cookbook along with a dog biscuit shaped cookie cutter! The cookbook has loads of wonderful dog biscuit recipes that would satisfy any canine sweet or savory tooth especially my 6-month old teething puppy’s. One section of the cookbook has monthly recipes depending on the season or holiday. The recipe I made was called Whole Lotta Love dog biscuits in honor of Valentine’s Day. The recipe is below and as far as I know, my puppy loves these (although he’s teething and will settle for anything right now including but not limited to leather boots, blinds, crown molding, carpet, etc…)
1 c. oat Flour *(See note)
1.24 c. brown rice flour *(See note)
1/2 c. parmesan cheese
1 6 0z. can tomato paste
1 Tb. Beet powder (optional)* (See note)
2/3 c. water
Preheat the oven to 350. Combine all the ingredients and mix until a dough forms. Roll out the dough onto a lightly floured surface to 1/4 inch thickness. Use the dog bone cookie cutter to cut out the biscuits and then place on an ungreased cookie sheet. Bake for 20-25 minutes. Cool on a wire cookie rack and store in an airtight container or in the refrigerator.
* I did not use the oat flour or the brown rice flour since I did not haveI did not use the oat flour or the brown rice flour since I did not have either on hand. I used white flour and figured that my teething puppy wouldn’t mind that his dog biscuits weren’t organic. I also didn’t use the beet powder since I didn’t have any. But this merely turns the biscuits red. I found that the tomato paste turned my biscuits orange and for various college basketball reasons, this color turned out fine by me and my puppy!
