Dog Biscuits


As a young child, my imagination constructed the perfect dog as this: medium-sized, playful, golden in color and named Biscuit. We romped in imaginary fields together and also spent a good amount of time hanging out with Mr. Snuffleupagus–ah, the good old days. While I now own a wild-child of a dog who only shares the “medium-sized” part of that ancient ideal, I love my real life pooch dearly. When Hannah of Femininja and I got talking about eating, drinking and dogs, we decided we could easily make a safely digestible, tasty treat for them. And yes, both pooch and person may eat these. Dare I mention their similarity to my sweet potato crackers? Go forth and bake, knowing Hannah and I taste-tested these… just for you guys.

Dog Biscuits
1 cup cooked turkey breast (or other lean meat)
1 cup frozen peas (or other vegetable, such as cooked sweet potato or cooked broccoli)
2 eggs
1/3 cup coconut flour

Preheat oven to 375. In a food processor, combine all ingredients until a smooth thick dough is created. Form whichever shapes you desire, or go for the classic bone shape, about 1 and 1/2 inches long. Bake for 20 minutes or until just browning all over. Allow to cool, then give your dog a bone. Makes about 20-30 biscuits.

Note: coconut flour is very fibrous. While you can feed your dog quite a few of these, remember they are filling!
