Dog Biscuits

Below is the recipe one of my Daisy moms emailed me. I do not know where she got it from. However, it was easy to make, and the dogs at the SPCA couldn’t get enough of them. There is also no raw meat, so no worries for little hands.
Gourmet Dog Treats
2 cups whole wheat flour
3/4 cup rolled oats
1/2 cup powdered milk
1 egg, beaten
5 T vegetable oil
1/4 cup water
2 jars strained baby food (any flavor as long as it is all natural, no preservatives)
Preheat oven to 350. Combine all ingredients into a thick dough. Knead about 4-5 minutes, until it becomes smooth. Sprinkle additional flour onto counter, roll out to 1/2″ thickness. cut into small pieces or use cookie cutters to make shapes. Bake on ungreased cookie sheets. Cool and store in airtight container.
*If you want softer and chewier, bake for around 30 minutes.
*If you want crunchier, bake for around 45-60 minutes
