Homemade, low calorie dog treats
2 c. whole wheat flour
1 tbsp. oregano
1 packet yeast
1 tbsp. minced garlic
1 egg, separated
2 tbsp. parsley
1/4 c. broth (I used chicken, but I'm sure most dogs would love beef as well!)
1/4 c. tomato, mashed
parmesan or pecorino cheese
These babies don't spread very much, so you don't have to worry about spacingTo Do:
1) Preheat oven to 350 F. Stir together flour, yeast, oregano, garlic and parsley. Add egg yolk, warm broth and tomato, mix well.
2) Roll dough to about 1/2 of an inch thick and cut with cookie cutter. Brush tops of cookies with egg white and sprinkle with parmesan cheese.
3) Bake for 30 minutes, then reduce heat to 200 F. Let dry in oven for one hour. Cool and feed those dogs!
Cubby sneaking a treat
When these treats first came out of the oven, I thought they were too hard. Then I actually fed them to my dogs and realized the texture was perfect. It's comparable to a milk bone. Cubby will eat anything, so the pickier Sputnik was the true test. He loved them! I would definitely make these biscuits again. I'm still trying to convince Eric to eat one so I can let you know how they taste...
