2 ¾ cup flour
2 teaspoons baking powder
2 tablespoons bran
3 cups fresh minced parsley (helps freshen breath)
¼ cup shredded carrots
¼ cup shredded cheese (mozzarella, cheddar, your choice)
2 tablespoons olive oil
½ teaspoon flaxseed (optional)
½ cup water
Start by preheating oven to 350 degrees. Next, get a cookie sheet and lightly grease it. In a medium bowl, combine flour, baking powder and bran. In separate bowl, combine parsley, shredded carrots, shredded cheese, olive oil and flaxseed. Work carrot/cheese mixture into dry mixture, slowly adding water as needed until dough becomes moist, not wet.
Knead dough for one minute. Roll dough out onto lightly floured surface until ¼" thick. Cut dog treat shapes from dough using any cookie cutters you have on hand. Place shaped dog treats onto greased baking sheet. Bake 20 - 30 minutes. Treats are done when browned and slightly hardened. As the treats cool, they'll continue hardening.
When thoroughly cool, store these tasty vegetarian dog treats in an airtight container.
Yield: 2 - 3 dozen dog treats
Before feeding your pug any "human" food, check with your local vet to make sure your pug is not allergic to any of the ingredients.
