Bread Machine Dog Biscuits

Education & Training with Realty Mark Associates AB066878

Our bread machine doesn't get used as often as I'd hoped. So when I came across this recipe for Bread Machine Dog Biscuits, I was intrigued. Another use for the bread machine! You let the machine mix the ingredients.

This recipe makes about 3 dozen medium hard biscuits using a 2" cookie cutter.

dog biscuits     Ingredients:  
     1 bouillion cube (any flavor)
     3/4 cup boiling water
     1 egg     
     3 tbsp vegetable oil
     1 cup white AP flour   
     1 2/3 cups whole wheat flour         
     1/3 cup wheat germ
                                                 1/4 cup powdered milk
                                                     1 tsp garlic powder 
                                                     1 Pkg active dry yeast


In a small bowl, dissolve bouillion cube in boiling water and set aside until cooled.

Place all the ingredients in the inner pan of a bread machine in the order specified for your machine. Mine calls for all wet ingredients first, then dry ingredients then the yeast packet.

  Select the "dough" cycle or the equivalent for your machine like "manual" and push "start". 

  Prior to "first rise" cycle, remove dough to a floured surface.

  With a rolling pin, roll dough to 1/4" thickness.

  Cut with a 2" cookie cutter and place on a greased baking sheet.

  Cover lightly with a tea towel, set in a warm place, (I use my unheated stove) and allow to  rise for 30 minutes.

  Bake at 30 minutes at 325 degrees F.

  Cool on a rack. Store in a container with a loose fitting lid.


My cookie cutter is a lamb for Easter cookies. But if you squint your eyes, they look like dogs with short tails!

I'm always looking for more ways to utilyze my bread machine AND find healthy treats for my two dogs. This accomplishes both. Thanks for the recipe Suzanne.

Debe Maxwell, CRS ~ this is so easy. One of my dogs is picky and she liked them. My other dog would eat ANYTHING so I feel good giving him something healthy!

Suzanne, great idea for those families with pups!   I donated my bread machine when I moved last year, never made bread.

What a great idea, but i don't have any dogs or a bread machine, but I like the concept of healthy dog snacks.
