    I have the mixture in the bowl and it is FAR FAR too dry. I'm not sure how to even attempt to roll this out. Wondering what I'll have to add to make it roll-able.

      She forgot to list the 3 tablespoons of water in the posted recipe. That may be why it is not binding. It is in video, though.

    It was a hit with my dogs and easy to make, so they are the real reviewers for this.

    Fantastic! All natural ingredients, no sugar or wheat...what's not to love? We tasted them and know why our dog loves them! Yummy! We substituted the cheeses for cottage cheese.

    the batter is too dry.. way too dry, i added more water and olive oil.. like almost 2 extra cups of liquids i needed to add. i also used coconut flour instead of barley flour.. im sure the dogs will love them, but the recipe needs updated.. i wish i added more applesauce in hindsight..

      Coconut flour is way more absorbent than any other flour. The measurements would need to be altered a lot if you're substituting coconut flour; that's why the batter turned out so dry. Usually you only need a few tbsps of coconut flour. You could use an equally dense flour though, maybe brown rice or buckwheat flour.

    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.

    My dog Bella. LOVES these. I put one of these in one hand and a store bought one in the other hand and she always goes for these over the store bought. I also love that i actually know whats in them.. and to be honest. If i know that i can eat these, i feel much better as a pet owner. :)
