This recipe started out as a school project my daughter did as a nine year old (she's now almost 18). It's been refined over time. We make these often as our dog is allergic to a protein in beef, so most "bought" dog biscuits aren't suitable - plus the dog loves them!
To make these you'll need:
- 2 cups wholemeal flour
- 1 cup rolled oats
- 1/4 cup ground almonds or almond meal
- 1/4 cup liquid honey
- 1/4 cup stewed apple
- 1 large egg
- olive oil
- chopped mint (optional)
Heat the oven to 180F (350C). Place all the dry ingredients in a large bowl and stir. Make a well, then add the honey, the egg and the stewed apple.
Add 1/8 cup of olive oil and mix well. Keep adding more oil a tablespoon at a time until you get a dough that holds together without being sticky. If the dough does become a bit too wet then just add a little more flour.
Once the dough is the right consistency roll take a tablespoon of the dough and roll into a ball. Place the ball of dough on a lined baking tray and flatten slightly.
Bake for 15-20 minutes until golden. Makes 20-25 dog biscuits.
