Choosing the ingredients of what your dog eats is essential to good health.  Tashi loves fresh baked cookies in a variety of assortments!  These biscuits are very simple to make and are a bit hit at our house.

2 cups whole wheat flour (we use Bob’s Red Mill)
1/4 cup wheat bran
1/8 cup rolled barley oats
2 Tablespoons virgin coconut oil (melted)
1 cup water
1/4 cup chopped fresh parsley
1 Tablespoon pumpkin seeds

Preheat oven to 375 degrees.  Combine flour, wheat bran, barley oats, parsley and pumpkin seeds.  Add water and oil to dry ingredients.  Knead for 2-3 minutes.  Roll dough to 1/4″ thick and cut with a bone shaped cookie cutter.  Bake on an ungreased cookie sheet for 25-30 minutes.
