Pumpkin Recipe – Dog Biscuits from YOUR oven

 

Stop giving your dog treats from China that is killing our dogs!  Here is a Pumpkin Recipe that is healthy for them.

Brown rice flour gives the biscuits crunch and promotes better dog digestion.  Many dogs have touchy stomachs or allergies, and do not, like many people, tolerate wheat.

Makes up to 75 small (1″) biscuits or 50 medium biscuits

* * *  Use organic ingredients when available  * * *

2 eggs
1/2 cup canned raw pumpkin (not pie filling)
2 tablespoons dry milk
1/4 teaspoon sea salt
2 1/2 cups brown rice flour
1 teaspoon dried parsley (optional)

Preheat oven to 350.

In large bowl, whisk together eggs and pumpkin to smooth.  Stir in dry milk, sea salt, and dried parsley (if using, optional).  Add brown rice flour gradually, combining with spatula or hands to form a stiff, dry dough.  Turn out onto lightly floured surface (can use the brown rice flour) and if dough is still rough, briefly knead and press to combine.

Roll dough between 1/4 – 1/2″ – depending on your dog’s chew preferences, and use biscuit or other shape cutter to punch shapes, gathering and re-rolling scraps as you go.  Place shapes on cookie sheet, no greasing or paper is necessary.  If desired, press fork pattern on biscuits before baking, a quick up-and-down movement with fork, lightly pressing down halfway through dough.

Bake 20 minutes.

Remove from oven and carefully turn biscuits over, then bake additional 20 minutes.  Allow to cool completely on rack before feeding.

Keep refrigerated, or freeze, for up to 2 weeks as there are no preservatives.
