"These are our dog's favorite treats! If your dog has a corn allergy, you can substitute additional flour or oats for the cornmeal. Bone appetit!" — Dani

1 1/2 cups
whole wheat flour
1 1/2 cups
water, or as needed
If you cut the amount of water down to 1/2 cup, this is a five-star recipe, according to my Merry! She really loves these biscuits, and I feel good knowing what goes into them. I just made my second batch, and used beef broth instead of water and added a little crushed garlic for flea control. Will experiment with using bacon grease for part or all of the oil next time. i also agree that the 2 Tablespoons of vanilla may be excessive, i cut that to 2 teaspoons. This does make a lot, and since Merry is a small dog, I cut the recipe in half. Still made 75 small biscuits.
This was a waste of a good afternoon! What a mushy mess! There is way too
much liquid called for in this recipe. After reading the other reviews that used only
1/2 c. water instead of 1-1/2 cups, I'm willing to give them another try.
After so many failed attempts with recipes from this site, you'd think I'd know better
and read the reviews first!
After reading all the other reviews, I used 1/4 c veg oil and 1/4 c bacon fat in place of canola oil. I also added 3 Tbls of honey, cooked them on non stick cookie sheets which eliminted greasing the pans and also found if you cooked them at 350 degrees for 12-15 min. They came out great. Our fussy dogs loved them!
I didn't read the reviews until after I found the dough more of a batter, but I just tossed in flour and oats till it was workable, and it cooked up very easily. These also make a good gift in a jar for the animal lover in your list. Just increase the recipe by about 1/4, and the dry ingredients fit nicely into a wide-mouth quart jar.
These come out great! I made them to sell at a dog walk-a-thon for the shelter I volunteer at. The dogs loved them. After following the advice of the others, I only added 1/2 cup of water. That is the correct amount! The dough forms and cuts easily and bakes up just like a biscuit. I tasted one myself and it wasn't bad. I was a bit wary of the 2 Tbsp of vanilla extract (that seems like an awful lot) so next time I'll use 2 tsp and see how they come out.
My dog loved these biscuits! She gave them as a Christmas gift to her best friend next door. Some of the other users had an issue with the amount of water used. The recipe does say "as needed". I added all the other wet ingredients first and found that I didn't need any water at all. Great recipe!
My dogs absolutely love these treats. I use chunky peanut butter and cut down on the water. Use seasonal cookie cutters for gifts for the doggies in your life!
These are excellent doggie biscuits. I think rather than following the water, you should focus on the as needed part. Mine took more than 1/2 cups, but no more than 3/4. Thanks for sharing!
Treat your loyal canine pal to delicious doggie birthday cake.
