Many dog biscuit recipes contain ingredients that are not good for dogs – these ones are! Blueberry powder provides more than a daily dose of antioxidants for our furry friends. Treat your pup with the best and make them homemade dog biscuits– they will love them! —Bow Hill Blueberries

In This Recipe
Directions
  1. Heat oven to 325°F.
  2. Grind the flax seed in a coffee grinder (or buy pre-ground).
  3. Set aside ½ cup of oat flour. Combine 1 ½ cups oat flour and remaining ½ cup of whole oats, blueberry powder, and flax meal.
  4. Stir in the bacon fat, eggs, and chicken stock until a sturdy dough forms.
  5. Generously sprinkle half the leftover oat flour on a counter top and use another fourth of it for the rolling pin (reapplying as needed). Roll the dough ½” thick and cut into your desired shapes.
  6. Place on a baking sheet lined with parchment paper or a Silpat (or nothing at all). After placing on the baking sheet, brush each shape with chicken stock or water.
  7. Bake 1 hour. Turn oven off and leave the biscuits in the oven with the door closed for another hour to completely dry out.
  8. Store in an airtight container until Fido has finished them off!
