Elliot’s House was nice enough to share their recipe for the treats they brought to our lastWine Down Wednesday “Yappy Hour”. Thank you!
Apple Cheddar Bacon Biscuits
2 cups whole wheat flour
1/2 cup old fashioned oatmeal
2/3 cup cheddar
1/3 cup unsweetened applesauce
2 tablespoons olive oil
low sodium bacon (optional)
Preheat the oven to 350 degrees and line a baking sheet with non stick baking mat or parchment paper (or I use the bacon grease to grease the sheet but that is if you use bacon)
Cook the bacon and separate it into small pieces
In a large bowl, mix together all ingredients and about 3 tablespoons water to form the dough.
Roll the dough on a flat surface (use flour on the surface to make sure the dough doesn’t stick to it), Once the dough is about 1/4 inch thick use a cookie cutter of your choosing to make fun shapes for the treats.
Space the treats 1 inch apart on the prepared baking sheet and bake for 10-20 minutes, depending on the size of the treats and the consistency you prefer. I usually make smaller sizes and cook them for around 10 minutes to get them a little crispy on the edges and softer in the middle.
They can last for up to 2 weeks.
Happy baking! Let us know if you have any other recipes for healthy pet treats.
