If you’re a betch with a betchy pet, they’re probably more spoiled than you. They get the best beds (SUP memory foam puppy palace!); the best toys (are these antlers from organic deer?); most expensive food (DOES THIS FOOD HAVE GMOS); and are frequently chosen as first/better/most loved over significant others and family members (“It’s definitely not Grover’s fault he peed on your heinously ugly rug”).
This being the case, they also, obviously, get the best treats. You know full well every time you pass a doggy boutique, you’re eyeing those fancy house-made dog cookies that could absolutely double as a treat for yourself in a desperate circumstance. I mean, if it’s peanut butter and banana and yogurt why WOULDN’T I try it? Don’t judge me.
But you can definitely make your own at home and like, if you chose to try them probs no one would know about it anyway.
- 2 cups whole wheat flour
- ½ cup old-fashioned oatmeal
- 1/3 cup shredded cheddar cheese
- ¼ cup grated Parmesan cheese
- 1/3 cup unsweetened apple sauce
- 2 tbsps vegetable oil
Preheat oven to 350F. Line a baking sheet with parchment paper and set aside.
In a large bowl, mix together all of the ingredients plus like 3 tbsps of water to form a dough. Roll out the mixture between two sheets of plastic wrap to about ¼ inch thick, then remove the plastic and cut out biscuits with a cookie cutter. Bonus points if the cookie cutter is doggy or bone shaped AWWWW.
Space biscuits about 1 inch apart on the prepared baking sheet then bake for 30 mins or until the biscuits are browned and firm. Transfer the biscuits to a wire rack, then turn off the oven and put the biscuits on the wire rack back IN the oven overnight. This will help them dry out and get crunchy. You can store these in an airtight container for about 2 weeks.
