Apple Cheddar Biscuits (everyday dog treats)

Makes 1 dozen biscuits


1 cup whole wheat flour
1 cup barley flour
½ cup rolled oats
½ teaspoon baking powder
½ teaspoon salt
½ cup cheddar cheese, shredded
¼ cup apples, chopped fine
13 cup applesauce
¼ cup walnut oil


Preheat oven to 350°F. In a large bowl sift together the dry ingredients, flours, oats, baking powder and salt. In another mixing bowl whisk together the wet ingredients; cheese, apples, applesauce and oil. Slowly incorporate the dry goods into the wet a little at a time, stirring as you go. Form the dough into a ball and knead lightly. Roll out dough on lightly floured surface and cut with a dog biscuit cookie cutter. Place the biscuits on a baking sheet lined with parchment paper and bake for 15 minutes or until golden brown. Cool and let stand to harden overnight. Store in an airtight container in the refrigerator for up to three weeks.
