Pumpkin Dog Biscuit Recipe
1/2 cup canned pumpkin
2 tablespoons dry milk
1/4 teaspoon sea salt
2 1/2 cups brown rice flour *
1 teaspoon dried parsley (optional)
Preheat oven to 350 degrees.
In a large bowl, whisk together eggs and pumpkin to smooth. Stir in dry milk, sea salt, and dried parsley. Add brown rice flour gradually, combining with spatula or hands to form a stiff, dry dough. Turn out onto lightly floured surface (can use the brown rice flour) and if dough is still rough, briefly knead and press to combine.
Roll dough between 1/4 - 1/2" - depending on your dog's chew preferences- and use biscuit or other shape cutter to punch shapes, gathering and re-rolling scraps as you go. Place shapes on cookie sheet, no greasing or paper necessary. If desired, press fork pattern on biscuits before baking, a quick up-and-down movement with fork, pressing lightly down halfway through dough. Bake for 20 minutes. Remove from oven and carefully turn biscuits over, then bake an additional 20 minutes. Allow to cool completely on rack before feeding to dog.
*Brown rice flour gives the biscuits crunch and promotes better dog digestion. Many dogs have touchy stomachs or allergies, and do not tolerate wheat.
Makes up to 75 small 1" biscuits or 50 medium biscuits.
**Also please note: This is not professional medical advice. These biscuits are a heathy everyday treat, and useful for a dog with a sensitive stomach, or minor digestion issues. If your dog is showing any signs of serious distress, remove all food and contact your veterinarian immediately.
