Chelle's Own Dog Busquit Recipe

Can I have one more...please?

After buying store bought biscuits that maybe, just maybe, my pups might like and not knowing what the ingredients were, I decided to embark on the project to make my own at home.

I spent many months going over many different online and print recipes and then tweaking this recipe to come up with something that would be healthy and easy-to-make.

The pups beg for them and our clients have always asked for the recipe (after I gave them out as x-mas goodies a few years back). They make a great gift and it’s nice to know these treats contain ingredients that I might eat myself and can pronounce!

So here it is:

  • 1 (25 oz) jar of apple Sauce
  • 1½ cups of uncooked oatmeal
  • 2 cups wheat flour
  • ½ cup of chicken bouillon (granules, powder or Minor’s stock base)
  • 1 cup ground flax seed
  • 2 cups peanut butter
  • 1 cup of minced dates, dried cherries or  dried cranberries
  • 2 cups of hot water
  • ½ cup of powdered milk
  • 3 eggs (beaten)
  • 1/2 jar (1 ¾ oz) of garlic powder
  • 1 package of dry yeast

Combine bouillon, peanut butter and garlic powder with the hot water. Let cool to a lukewarm temperature.  Add yeast. Stir until dissolved.

Put the applesauce, oatmeal, and ground flax seed into a large bowl; pour the liquid mixture over this and mix well. Let stand for 10 minutes.

Mix in powdered milk, dried fruit and eggs. Add flour ½ cup at a time, stirring well after each addition.  Mix to make semi stiff dough. Add more flour if needed.

Pour mixture into parchment paper lined cake pans. Bake at 300 degrees for 1 hour.

Remove from pans and place onto a cutting board. Cut biscuits into small square pieces (I usually cut them to the size of a sugar cube, as I have small dogs). Place these cut up pieces onto non-greased cookie sheets.

Return to oven and bake at 200 degrees for 1 hour. Turn off oven and let biscuits continue to dry out in the cooling oven over night.

Store in an airtight container.

    Looks like a great recipe! Do they need to be refrigerated? How long do they keep?

      No need to refrigerate Krystal. Since they are dried out like biscotti, they keep for several months in a dry spot.
