Dog Biscuits Deluxe

  • 2      cup whole-wheat or rye flour

  • 1/2   cup soy flour

  • 1/4   cup cornmeal

  • 1      teaspoon bonemeal

  • 1/2   cup sunflower or pumpkin seeds

  • 1 -2  cloves garlic, minced, or 1/2 teaspoon garlic powder  (optional)

  • 1       tablespoon nutritional yeast  (optional)

  • 2       tablespoons butter (melted), fat, or oil

  • 1/4    cup unsulfured molasses

  • 1       teaspoon salt

  • 2       eggs mixed with 1/4 cup milk

     Mix the flours, cornmeal, bonemeal and seeds together.  Add the garlic and yeast, if desired.  Combine the butter, fat or oil, molasses, salt and egg mixture; set aside 1 tablespoon of this liquid mixture and combine the rest with the dry ingredients.  Add more mild, if necessary, to make a firm dough.  Knead together for a few minutes and let the dough rest 1/2 hour or more.  Roll out to 1/2 inch thick.  Cut into crescents, rounds or sticks and brush with the remainder of the egg mixture.  Bake at 350 F. for 30 minutes or until lightly toasted.  To make harder biscuits, leave them in the oven with the heat turned off for an hour or more.  Biscuits keep longer if you use oil instead of butter.  Thes biscuits contain 18% protein, 19% fat, and 63% carbohydrates.
