In order to delight the favourite dog in your life, try giving him these Crunchy Doggy Chews as a Christmas gift, or whenever he deserves a treat. (Which is often…so make sure you have lots on hand!) He will be more than happy to enjoy this tasty doggy bone, and you will be secure in the knowledge that there are no chemical additives in these healthy treats.

Ingredients to make for approximately 18 tasty Crunchy Doggy Chews

½ cup quick-cooking rolled oats (do not use the instant oats)

½ cup wheat germ

2 T brewers yeast

¼ cup instant soy drink powder

1 tsp low-sodium beef bouillon powder

2 (3 ½ oz) jars of a good quality organic strained beef baby food

1. In a medium-sized bowl, mix together all the dry ingredients thoroughly.

2. Stir in the beef baby food, mixing well.

3. Allow the mixture to stand for about 1 hour.

4. Lightly flour your pastry board, and place the mix in the center.

5. Roll or pat the doggy bone dough out to a ½ ” thick rectangle.

6. Show your creative side by cutting different shapes that your dog may enjoy, or use the traditional bone-shaped cookie cutter.

7. Be sure to roll out any scraps 1/2″ thick, (using up all the doggy dough), and cut out more bones or creative shapes.

8. Space your doggy bones 2″ apart on a greased baking sheet, baking in a 300 degree F oven for about 1 ½ hours until hard and dry.

9. Cool.

Store these tasty doggy chews in an airtight container for up to 10 weeks.
