Remember all those flours and things I received from Bob's Red Mill? Well, before I started "bakin' the biscuits", I had to find containers for all of it. Above and below is the flax meal and it looks sort of like brown Splenda. I'll include the recipe at the end.
And oat flour..............
And 1 egg and some olive oil.
We can't forget the blueberries!
Add 1 cup of water and mix it all up and if it wasn't for the blueberries it would look like cement and it is a heavy, sticky dough.
I placed wax paper on my rolling surface and then some of the dough and put plastic wrap over the top and rolled it with my rolling pin until it was about 1/4 " thick. I use a small cookie cutter because my girls get frequent treats so the smaller the better. It's not a meal just a reward but they're such great dogs that they get them often!
I dipped the cutter into some of the oat flour and even still I had to push them out of the cutter at times.
Here's a tray of them ready to go in the oven. They go in for 30 minutes at 350 degrees F but then when the 30 minutes is done you leave the oven door closed and leave them in there overnight to dry out.
They're still in the oven so I won't have a picture until tomorrow morning of the finished product nor will I have the opinions of the official taste testers.....Nitty and Annie...........
Here they are.....my loyal companions who are a bit disgusted with me now as I guess I forgot to tell them that they wouldn't be ready until tomorrow. Whoops! Nitty won't even look at me...
and Annie well.... that's a dirty look if I ever saw one..........and a dirty floor too! Why don't I see the dirt when I'm taking the picture? Maybe I need to go around my whole house and take pictures so I can see what's REALLY there....on second thought, maybe not.
This recipe is from Martha Stewart's employee's Mother who bakes these for her dogs.
Blueberry Dog Biscuits Yield: 30 large
1 1/2 C oat flour
2 1/2 C quinoa flour
3/4 C flax meal
1/2 cup frozen unsweetened blueberries
1/4 C olive oil
1 large egg
1 C water
Preheat oven to 350 degrees F and line your cookie sheet with parchment paper.
Mix all ingredients together until fully incorporated. Take some of the dough and sandwich between 2 pieces of plastic wrap (although I used wax paper on the bottom). Using a rolling pin, roll the dough out to 1/4 " thickness and cut into shapes. Place an inch apart on cookie sheet and bake for 30 minutes. After the 30 minutes, turn off the oven and leave the biscuits in the oven overnight. The next morning, store them in an airtight container and they will last for 2 weeks or until all eaten up!
Hope you had a fantastic weekend and a wonderful week ahead!
P.S. We got some rain! Not nearly enough but we'll take it! Thank you all for your concern and the rain dances!
