Vegetarian Dog Bone Recipe Ingredients
- 1 cup water
- 1/4 cup olive oil
- 2 cups whole wheat flour
- 1/2 cup unbleached flour
- 1/4 cup barley flour
- 1/4 cup dried vegetables, chopped finely
- 1/4 cup brewers or nutritional yeast
- 1 1/2 tsp. dry baking yeast
- Place all of the ingredients in your breadmaker — in the order that your breadmaker suggests.
- Use the “dough” cycle.
- When the dough is ready, remove it from the bread maker.
- Divide it into 3 or 4 balls to make it easier to work with it.
- Roll each ball of dough into a sheet. If you are making 3″ bones make the sheet ¼” thick. If you are making 5-7″ bones, make the sheet ½” thick.
- Let the bones rise for 45-60 minutes.
- Bake at 300 degrees F for approximately 1 hour or until they feel hard to the touch.
- Turn off the oven and let the dog bones continue to dry in the oven overnight.
Store these healthy dog treats in a cool dry place in an airtight container for a period up to 30 days. Or, you can refrigerate or freeze them for longer periods.
I don’t recommend making the 1″ bones with this dog bone recipe, as the dried vegetables are kind of “chunky” and stick out of the dough a bit.
The dried vegetables also make it hard to cut the small bone treats.
One way to avoid this is to chop them quickly in your blender to make them smaller, even as fine as a powder.
Dog bone cookie cutters are a must for this recipe.
