The main man in my life, my adopted dog, Wilko aka Willay, deserves his very own recipe! Wilko takes no commands and he chews all my shoes – even my passport once – but he gives the best cuddles. These biscuits won’t make your dog smell, if you get me. All you dog owners know what I’m talking about!
- 200g oat flour, plus extra for dusting
- 1 egg, beaten
- ½ chicken stock cube dissolved in 100ml hot water
- 2 tbsp smooth peanut butter
- 2 handfuls of peeled and grated sweet potato
- 2 cooked bacon or turkey rashers, fat trimmed off and chopped into tiny pieces
- Preheat the oven to 180°C. Line a baking tray with non-stick baking paper.
- Put the oat flour, beaten egg, stock and peanut butter in a medium-sized bowl and mix until combined into a sticky dough. Mix in the sweet potato and bacon pieces using a spoon or fork.
- Dust a cutting board with a little extra oat flour. Pinch off a piece of dough about the size of a golf ball, then use your hands to roll it into a cylinder about 5cm long and 2cm thick. Make two round ball shapes at one end (yep, it looks like a willy, I know!) but quickly make another two ball shapes at the other end, and there you have it – it should look like a bone.
- Place the biscuits on the lined tray and bake in the preheated oven for 20 minutes, until firm and golden brown. Allow to cool completely on a wire rack, then store in an airtight container for up to three weeks.
