More Dog Treats

Fruit & Veggie Dog Biscuits
3 C white whole wheat flour
1 C quick-cooking rolled oats
2 Tbsp flaxseeds
1/2 tsp ground cinnamon
3/4 C water
1/2 C chopped carrot
1/4 C finely chopped cored apple
2 Tbsp molasses
2 Tbsp vegetable oil
1 large egg
1 tsp pure vanilla

Preheat oven to 350°F.

In a large bowl, combine flour, oats, flaxseeds and cinnamon. In a food processor, combine water, carrot, apple, molasses, oil, egg and vanilla. Puree until smooth. Pour wet ingredients over dry ingredients and mix well.

In the bowl use your hands to knead the dough until it holds together; you may need to add water in small amounts if dough seems too dry. Transfer to lightly floured surface. Using a rolling pin, roll out dough to about 1/8-inch. Cut dough with a cookie cutter or knife into bite-size shapes. Place about 1/2 inch apart on baking sheets.

Bake in preheated oven for 20 minutes or until firm. Place pans on racks and let cool completely. Reduce oven temperature to 300°F. Bake for 30 minutes longer or until hard. Transfer cookies to a rack and let cool completely. Store in a tightly sealed container for up to 30 days.

These biscuits should be hard and crunchy, which is good for your dog's oral health.
