If you’ve always wanted to make your own doggie biscuits, look no more – this simple recipe is perfect. And it is also kids friendly, meaning you can make it together with your children, teaching them how to cook and measure along the way in a stressless and fun way.
Plus, dogs love to chew on bones, and most simply die for these beefy buckwheat treats. Not to mention that these biscuits are all natural and a great source of protein.
So, start by measuring out all the ingredients, which include:
- 3-1/2 cups of buckwheat flour
- 1-1/2 cups of rolled oats
- 1/2 cup of ground beef
- 1/4 cup of olive oil
- 1 cup of water
- Pinch of salt
- 1 egg
Lets start with the fun part: kneading. You can let them go crazy with the dough – the thicker the better. Alternatively, you can have lots of fun with the dog yourself.
The easiest way to make these biscuits into the shape of bones is to use a bone-shaped cookie cutter, which you can find in most of pet supply stores. Alternatively, you could carve the bones fairly easily with a knife. As for the latter, it might be a good idea to make a bone pattern from paper or cardboard to guide the knife.
One you’ve formed your beefy buckwheat biscuits and placed them on a cookie or baking sheet, all that’s left is to bake them at 180C for about 30 minutes.
One last tip for making your biscuits (and just about any oven-baked doggie snack) hard and crunchy instead of soft and chewy: once they’re done baking, allow them to cool for a few hours in the turned-off oven.
And here we go, easy made yummy treats that your pooch will love!
