Oaty Flaxseed Bites

Wholesome home-made treats are a great way to reward good behaviour and these tasty biscuits have lots of health benefits, with fibrous oats, omega-rich flaxseeds and breath-freshening parsley.

Ingredients

  • 30g milled flaxseed
  • 200g oat flour
  • 1 cup chopped fresh parsley

  • 125ml low salt chicken stock (please check stock doesn't contain onion or garlic)

Method

  • Preheat oven to 180 degrees Celsius
  • Combine all the dry ingredients in a large bowl
  • Add the chicken stock and egg
  • Kneed into a dough and roll it out to about 3-5mm thick (if the dough is a bit stick add more flour)
  • Cut individual bites with a cookie cutter
  • Place on baking paper and pop in the oven for 30 minutes or until they are golden brown
  • Turn the oven off and allow the treats to cool completely inside the oven before removing

 

Portions: Recipe makes approximately 60-70 biscuits when using a 1.5cm x 1.5cm square cutter – about two weeks’ worth of treats for a healthy dog.

Ideal for: Health, active dogs

Nutrition: treats should never make up more than 10% of your dog’s diet

Hint: Parsley is often used as a breath freshener or to sooth a dog’s stomach.

Did you know?: Oats are an excellent source of soluble fibre, which can be specifically beneficial for older dogs that may have trouble maintaining bowel regularity.
