Semi-Homemade Treats for the Pups
For Christmas, Sam's parents got us a dog treat tray and King Arthur Flour's Flax & Oat Dog Biscuit Mix. I couldn't wait to try it out.
The biscuits were easy to make. All you have to do is follow the directions on the back of the box. You don't need a fancy bone-shaped cookie tray--you can roll out the dough and use a cookie cutter--but the tray definitely made cute treats.
The biscuits smelled delicious while baking. The smell reminded me of a pot pie. If I could've tasted them I would have, but the biscuits contain milk. They also contain whole wheat flour, oats, brown rice flour, flax, nonfat milk, carrots, natural flavor, yeast and spice. My one complaint about the ingredient list is that I don't know what "natural flavor" and "spice" is used. I trust that King Arthur Flour did their homework and they're not including anything harmful for my pups, but it would be better if the ingredients were more transparent.
Because I used the bone-shaped cookie tray, my biscuits are a bit smaller, so I baked them for 45 minutes. They came out with just the right amount of crunch for my greyhounds. Both of them were happy to eat their semi-homemade treats.
