Chia seeds aren't just for humans. Add them to this slightly sweet dog treat recipe for a bone that tells your pup, "You've been really good today!".
1 cup all-purpose flour
1 cup whole wheat flour
1/2 cup toasted wheat germ
1/4 cup chia seeds
1/3 cup almond butter
2/3 cup water
2 tablespoons canola oil
2 tablespoons maple syrup
2 carrots, grated
How to Make It
Preheat the oven to 350°F. Line a large shallow baking sheet with parchment paper.
Combine the flours, wheat germ and chia seeds in a medium bowl. Whisk together the almond butter, water, oil and syrup in a separate bowl then stir in the carrots. Pour the wet ingredients into the dry and stir with a spoon or rubber spatula until a very rough dough forms. Knead the dough in the bowl 6-7 times until the dough is fairly stiff.
Turn the dough out onto a lightly floured work surface and roll out to a 1/4-inch thickness. With a 3-inch dog bone shaped cookie cutter, cut out biscuits and transfer to the prepared baking sheet. Press all the scraps together, kneading once or twice, then roll out to 1/4-inch thickness and cut out more biscuits; repeat if necessary.
Bake biscuits until lightly browned and fairly hard, about 35-40 minutes. Remove from the oven and cool completely; biscuits will harden as they cool. Store in an airtight container.
