Beefy dog biscuits

This was the special treat that I put into my Christmas hampers for Jasper, Bruno and Daisy (aka Moog). By all accounts, they loved them and as there is nothing particularly strange in them they can be eaten by anyone brave enough!

This recipe makes about 60 dog biscuits but they last forever in a ziplocked bag. The brewers yeast is essential and can be found in any health food shop. Baking yeast cannot be substituted as it is harmful to dogs.


375g plain flour
360g wholewheat flour
240g coarse wheatbran
120g cornmeal
8g garlic powder
15g brewers yeast
60g milk powder
710ml beef broth

Preheat oven to 150C

In a large mixing bowl combine the white flour, whole wheat flour, cracked wheat, cornmeal, garlic powder, brewer's yeast and instant milk.

Stir in 500ml of broth and mix the ingredients well using a wooden spoon. The dough should be very stiff. Gradually mix in the remaining 210ml broth to make a bread-dough consistency.

Roll the dough out to about 1cm thickness on a floured worktop. Cut out biscuits into any shape you want, cat shapes will probably go down well!

Place the biscuits on the prepared baking sheets and bake for 45 minutes.

Turn oven off and leave the biscuits in the oven for at least 6 hrs or overnight so they are really hard.
