Today’s Dog Treat Cookie Recipe

DOGGI BISCOTTI – with SUNFLOWER AND CHIA SEEDS

Did you know:
Sunflower seeds contain Selenium?
Studies have proved Selenium to be a powerful anti-cancer and anti-aging agent.
Research has demonstrated that Sunflower seeds also help improve a dog’s skin and coat.
Chia seeds have some incredible effects on animal health. The seeds contain large quantities of protein, Omega oils, 3 and 6 plus they have five times the calcium of milk. There are no known allergies in dogs to Chia seeds.

DOGGI BISCOTTI – with SUNFLOWER AND CHIA SEEDS
2 cups rye flour
2 cups wholemeal flour (whole wheat)
1 cup polenta (fine ground)
Note: Replace with 5 cups plain (all purpose) flour if you prefer.
¼ cup sunflower seeds
1 tbsp. chia seeds
1 tsp. baking powder
1 medium egg
¼ cup canola oil
¼ cup mashed ripe banana (1 small banana)
½ cup mashed pumpkin
2 teaspoons vanilla essence
½ cup water
Extra water as needed
Preheat oven to 165°C (325°F) and line 2 baking trays with parchment paper
Mix dry, then wet ingredients until lumpy.
Add extra water, one teaspoon at a time as needed.
In the bowl and using hands, knead until dough holds together and a ball forms.
Transfer to lightly floured surface. Divide dough into two equal pieces and shape each piece into a log. Flatten the logs to about 2 inches wide and around 1½ – 2 inches high.
Place about 4 inches apart on baking tray.
Bake for about 40 minutes, or until firm (depends on your oven).
Remove from oven and let sit for 15 – 20 minutes.
Slice into ½ – ¾ inch slices.
Return to baking trays and bake for 15 minutes – remove trays from oven, turn slices over and return to the oven for 15 minutes, until golden.
Remove from oven and allow to cool on wire rack.
When cool, store in an air-tight container.
Homemade dog treats do not contain preservatives like the store bought ones, anything not eaten within 5 – 7 days is best refrigerated or frozen.
These Doggi Biscotti can be frozen for up to 4 months – if they last that long!
Yield was about 46 slices.

Feed these Doggi Biscotti as a treat.
Treats should not make up more than 10% of your pets diet.
As with any treat, always provide fresh water after feeding.
