Batty Biscuits for Your Pup

I've dabbled in making dog biscuits, using peanut butter and pumpkin in the past.

These dog biscuits smell like Christmas.  Pretty much.  So, not only do you get an amazing dog biscuit recipe, but you also get a free air freshener included.

You can thank me later.  Move over, Yankee Candles.

They're easy and you can make them in bulk for a very low price.  I'm planning on making them for Christmas gifts for my friends and their fur babies.

Your dog will go "batty" for these biscuits!

Ingredients:
Adapted from Just A Pinch

1 1/2 c. rice flour*
1 1/2 c. oat flour*
1/2 c. unsweetened applesauce
2 tsp. cinnamon
1/2 ripe banana, smushed
1/2 c. water

*You can totally use whole wheat flour for the entire recipe.  Rice flour is generally easier for dogs to digest, but I find that if you use it for the entire recipe, the biscuits are weird and gritty.

Directions:
Preheat the oven to  350° and line a baking sheet with a Silpat or parchment paper.

In a large bowl, combine the ingredients and mash them together with your hands - get in there and get dirty!  The dough should come together after some kneading.  If you're having trouble, add a little more water, about a tablespoon at a time, until it seems like dough.  If it gets too soupy, add more flour.

Taking about half of the dough at a time, roll it out on a well-floured surface.  Cut the dough with your cookie cutters and line them on your baking sheet.  I got about 40+ bats from this recipe.

Bake the cookies for 20 minutes and then flip them; bake for another 20 minutes.  They should be pretty darn hard.

Allow them to cool before serving to your pup!

I hope your doggie enjoys these treats; Clem certainly does!
