Here's a recipe for Cinnamon Honey Hearts Dog Biscuits, a special Valentine's Day treat for the four-legged member of your family.
½ cup water
¼ cup of pureed banana
½ plain yogurt (make sure the yogurt does NOT contain any artificial sweeteners, like xylitol)
1 tablespoon honey
1 tablespoon canola oil
1 teaspoon cinnamon
½ cup oat flour
¼ cup rice flour
1 cup wheat flour
In one bowl combine the dry ingredients (cinnamon, oat flour, rice flour and wheat flour), but only use ½ of the wheat flour for now. Set this aside and grab another bowl for the wet ingredients (water, banana, yogurt, honey and canola oil). Once you’ve mixed the wet ingredients together add in the dry ingredients and mix. Once it’s well blended add in the rest of the wheat flour ¼ cup at a time until your dough is nice and stiff.
Flour your surface and roll out the dough to your preferred thickness and use a fun cookie-cutter for the biscuits. Set the oven to 300 degrees and bake for about 30 minutes or until golden brown. A good tip is to leave the biscuits in the oven after shutting it off for a couple hours so they’re 100% dry and crunchy.
Make sure all treats are given in moderation. A balanced diet is important for both people and pets!
