Here at Skinny Ms. we believe in feeding our four legged family members whole foods without all those unrecognizable ingredients found in commercially made dog biscuits. For anyone who feels the same, here’s a yummy recipe for doggie biscuits that’s easy to make and ultra nutritious. My niece, Annalysse, dropped by for a visit and helped with the prep work.
2 cups old-fashioned oats
1/2 cup parmesan cheese
1 cup fresh spinach
1 1/4 cups grated carrots
1/4 cup chicken broth, fat free, low sodium
1 tablespoon extra virgin olive oil
Preheat oven to 350 degrees.
Place oats in the blender and grind into flour. In a medium bowl, whisk together oat flour and parmesan cheese.
Steam spinach until slightly wilted, either in a steam basket or in the microwave with 1 tablespoon water. Drain water from spinach and add to the blender along with grated carrots and chicken broth. Blend until pureed.
Add puree to dry ingredients along with olive oil. Combine ingredients either with a large spoon or use your hands. Kids love to use their hands when helping out.
Line a cookie sheet with parchment paper or use a nonstick cookie sheet. Shape dough into 14-16 1″ balls and place on the cookie sheet. Flatten the balls into 1/4″ cookie shapes. Bake 15 minutes, turn over and bake an additional 15 minutes. Allow to cool completed, store in an airtight container and refrigerate for up to two weeks. These yummy biscuits can also be frozen for up to two months.
