Ingredients

  • 2 cups barley flour
  • 1/2 cup old-fashioned oatmeal
  • 1/3 cup shredded cheddar
  • 1/4 cup grated Parmesan cheese
  • 1/3 cup unsweetened applesauce
  • 2 tablespoons olive oil

Directions

  1. Step 1

    Preheat oven to 350 degrees. Line a baking sheet with a nonstick baking mat or parchment paper; set aside.

  2. Step 2

    In a large bowl, mix together all ingredients and about 3 tablespoons water to form a dough. Roll out mixture between two sheets of plastic wrap to 1/4-inch thick; remove plastic wrap and cut out biscuits with a 3 1/2-inch bone-shaped cookie cutter. Reroll scraps and continue cutting out biscuits.

  3. Step 3

    Space biscuits 1 inch apart on prepared baking sheet. Bake for 30 minutes until nicely browned and firm.

  4. Step 4

    Transfer biscuits to a wire rack. Turn off oven and place biscuits on wire rack in oven overnight. Remove from oven and store in an airtight container up to 2 weeks.

    It is great recipe for my precious Atom:) I think the best thing we can do for our dog is to give them healthy homemade food. There are lots of great recipes in this website . You should see how they prepare great recipes for us.

    I believe the recipe may be a bit off. Maybe too much flour? I found the dough incredibly dry and it would not form a dough, so I added extra applesauce. I would also recommend rolling out the dough in two batches unless you have a really large counter. I ended up with 37 biscuits.
