By making your own dog bones you are providing your pet with wholesome food and are assured that you are not feeding them animal byproducts of unknown origin. Keep your eyes out for dog bone cookie cutters; they are frequently
sold in kitchen supply stores.
(Adapted from Rodale’s Book of Practical Formulas)
- 2 cups whole wheat flour
- 1/3 cup corn meal
- 1/2 cup soy flour
- 1/2 cup ground seeds
- 1/2 teaspoon salt
- 1 tablespoon linseed oil (available in health food stores)
- 1 tablespoon vegetable oil
- 1/4 cup unsulfured molasses
- 2 eggs
- 1/4 cup milk
Combine dry ingredients in a bowl. Mix to blend. Add the liquid ingredients.
Stir, adding more milk if necessary to make a ball that can be kneaded and rolled out on a cutting board. Roll out dough, and cut out dog bone shapes using a cookie cutter or knife. Place on a well-greased baking pan, and bake at 350 F for 25-35 minutes, or until browned.
