● 2 cups barley flour
● 1-cup bran
● 1-cup whole wheat flour
● 1 tsp garlic powder
● 1 tsp ginger
● 1-cup chicken broth (or water)
● ¼ cup chopped carrot
● ¼ cup chopped apple (remove the core)
● 2 tbsp sunflower oil
● 2 tbsp blackstrap molasses
●1 large egg
Preheat your oven first to 350 degrees.
In a large bowl mix barley and whole wheat flours and bran, garlic and ginger. In a food processor puree chicken broth (or water), apple, carrot, oil, molasses and the egg. Puree until really smooth and then pour over the dry ingredients.
Now start kneading the mixture into dough that holds together well. Lay it on a floured working surface and use a rolling pin to roll it out to about 1/8 inch thick. Again, you can make it thicker, but it will take longer to bake.
Poke holes all over the surface of the dough and use a sharp knife to cut into creative mouth sized shapes for your dog. Put the biscuits about a ½ inch apart on cookie sheets.
Bake in preheated over for 20 minutes until firm. Cool completely outside oven. Reduce your over temperature to 300 degrees and bake another 30 minutes until hard. Cool once again on the counter.
Temperatures and length of time to cook these goodies may also vary depending on your oven and your altitude. Keep an eye on them as they are baking. You will know how your oven bakes things and when these biscuits are ready.
Sure, you can keep these for up to 30 days in a tightly sealed container. Up out of reach of the dog.
