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!
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.
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!
