The point is, that my quest has been rewarded, not only with 1 dog bone cutter, but with 3 different sizes (Small, Medium and Large) because they came as a set. Which is great, because puppy is still growing at an alarming rate and will be in need of large bones by the end of the year. As an added bonus for my boundless patience and fortitude, they are copper as well. Woo Hoo!
So here is a great dog bone recipe. I realize that Rye flour is not a gluten free food, but it's measly 2% Gluten (as opposed to AP Flour which is around 10%) is overshadowed by the fact that it is blessed with a high soluble fiber content and a significant amount of Omega-3 and Omega-6 fatty acids (Hey, they are just as good for Fido as they are for you)
Cheddar Rye Bones
1/4 cup Olive oil
1 Large Egg
1 1/2 cup Dark Rye Flour, plus more for rolling
1/2 cup Oat Flour
2 TB - 1/4 cup Water
Preheat oven to 375 degrees
In the bowl of an electric mixer, combine shredded Cheddar Cheese, Olive oil and Egg.
I realize that not everyone is interested in baking canine treats. So in the interest of promoting healthy diets for canine chums, may I offer a suggestion? Check out my friends' Ian and Jordan over at Retrieve Dog Bakery? Rest assured, their mission statement says it all.... "If you wouldn’t eat it, why should your dog?"
