1½ cups whole wheat flour
1 cup unbleached all purpose flour
1/2 cup old fashioned rolled oats
1/3 cup oat bran
2 tablespoons dry milk
1 ½ teaspoons dry baking yeast
2 tablespoons chopped spearmint leaves
1/2 cup applesauce
2 teaspoons green or red powdered food coloring or spinach powder (to get the color desired)
7/8 cup water
Knead the dough and let rest in a dough oven or on the counter. Roll out to 1/4 inch when ready
Using a mini bone cookie cutter, cut the dough into mini dog bone shapes.
Bake at 250 degrees F for about an hour. Check to make sure that they don’t get too brown.
Turn off the oven and let the mini dog bones dry completely in the oven—This works best overnight.
These Christmas dog treats will keep for several months, at room temperature, in a cookie jar, so you can make them well ahead of the holidays.
