It’s Blogmas Day 2!
This year I really wanted to try making some healthy, festive treats for all of the doggos in my life!
- 300g whole wheat flour (plus extra for dusting)
- 1 large, sweet potato (baked and mashed)
- 200g finely shredded carrot
- 1 large egg
- 150ml water
Preheat the oven to 180 whilst you line a couple of large baking trays with baking paper.
In a large bowl, mix together the sweet potato, shredded carrot and egg.
Add the flour slowly whilst mixing until it starts to form a dough.
If the dough is too tough, slowly add water a little bit at a time until you have a good, cookie dough-like consistency to form a ball.
Dust a surface with flour and roll the dough out. The biscuits won’t rise much in the oven so it’ll need to be around 0.5cm thick.
Using a cutter of your choice (I chose a little star) cut out your biscuits and place them on the lined baking trays.
Pop the trays in the oven for 25 minutes or until they appear crisp and golden.
This recipe makes quite a lot of biscuits that I’ve been able to store in airtight containers and split between 3 dogs so they never last long. But if you want to keep them for longer than a week, you could store them in the freezer and defrost completely before feeding them to your doggie friends!
This is a recipe based on a bunch of different ideas from Pinterest that I’ve tried. The dogs in my life aren’t really sensitive to any foods but if your dog has special requirements definitely check out some of the recipes online – there are loads!
