Kelly’s Homemade Grain Free Dog Treats Recipe
- Preheat oven to 400 degrees F.
- In a small pot over medium heat, bring the chicken broth and fat/oil to a boil.
- While that is coming to a boil, mix tapioca flour, coconut flour, sea salt, brewers yeast and flax meal in a medium bowl.
- Once the broth/fat mixture comes to a boil, remove from heat and add to the flour bowl. Mix well.
- On a piece of parchment paper, press out the dough into a ¼” thick rectangle. Either cut into squares with a pizza cutter or use cookie cutters in desired shape.
- Bake for 15 minutes on a parchment lined cookie sheet. When the timer goes off, shut off the oven, crack the door and leave in the oven until cool (about 10-15 more minutes).
