If I can eat it, my dog, Jack, can eat it too. Call me crazy, but I only feed Jack food I can nibble on first. If it tastes good to me and I am aware of the ingredients or I made it myself…then he can have it! I love these simple, delicious wellness bones. They aren’t overwhelming in flavor and are filled with all the right goodness. Check out the benefits of each ingredient below!
Oatmeal: great source of soluble fiber
Carrots: beta carotene + antioxidant properties
Coconut oil: healthy coat + skin
Parsley: promotes fresh breath + aides digestion.
* 1 cup whole wheat flour
* 1 cup quick cook oatmeal
* 1 banana
* 2 carrots
* 2 Tbsp. coconut oil
* 1 Tbsp. brown sugar (optional)
* 1 Tbsp. parsley
* 1 whole egg
? Cut carrots into chunks – mix in blender / food processor (may need to a tiny bit of water or chicken broth for easier blending, otherwise they’ll get stuck or won’t even budge!)
? Puree the bananas in a blender or food processor until smooth (if they are already super ripe you can skip this and add into bowl)
? Combine all ingredients in a medium sized bowl and stir until well combined, turning into a big doughy ball
? Flip dough out onto a well floured surface. Press flat with your hands to 1/4” to 1/2” thickness, cut out dough using cookie cutter
? Place the cutouts on a greased baking sheet and bake in oven preheated to 350° F for 30 minutes – give or take. Depending on how they feel, i’ll leave them in for another 10 minutes. For softer biscuits, take them right out of the oven, for a more crispy biscuit, turn off the oven but leave them in there.
? At this point you can pull cookies out for a slightly soft cookie, or turn off oven, crack door and allow cookies to remain in oven for an additional 20 minutes to become hard
Store in airtight container in refrigerator for a week or freeze for up to 3 months.
