Finding myself with an abundance of flaxseeds needing to be used, and a new cookbook with recipe I wanted to try, plus a dog who loves treats, has led me to an adaptation of a raw dog treat – inexpensive, but completely healthy. I don’t know about you, but I feed my dog the same quality of food that I eat; she is part of the family after all.
These drop “biscuits” can also be people treats, but add a little spice and something nice to them first or they might be a little bland.
Raw Dog Treats: Drop Biscuits
(adapted from Ani’s Raw Food Kitchen)
makes ~ 12 medium sized biscuits
- 1 c. ground flaxseed (or if grinding fresh: 1/2c. + 1/3c. whole flaxseed will yield ~1 c. ground)
- 1/3 c. whole flaxseed
- 1/4 c. sesame seeds
- 2/3 c. sunflower seeds
- 1-1/3 c. water
Combine all the ingredients in a small mixing bowl and stir until well combined.
Drop by large spoonfuls onto a Teflex lined dehydrator tray.
Dehydrate at 104F for 4 hours (or more, if needed) until done.
