Fall has quickly come to grace us with, and we figured baking your pup some carrot and cheddar biscuits would be the perfect way to welcome fall. Not going to lie; we may or may not have tried these ourselves but strictly for quality control, of course. Let us know if one ends up falling into your mouth during this process as well. It can be a dangerous job, but pet parents have to do what they have to do sometimes.
Here is what you’ll need!
- Measuring Cups/Spoons
- 2 Medium/Large Mixing Bowl
- Electric Mixer (if you have one)
- 2 Baking Sheets
- Parchment Paper or Non-Stick Spray
- Cooling Rack
- 2 cups whole wheat flour
- 2 teaspoons baking powder
- 1/2 cup plain unsweetened Greek yogurt
- 1/2 cup finely shredded carrot
- 1/2 cup shredded cheddar cheese
- 1 cup oatmeal (old fashioned)
- 1 egg lightly beaten
- 1/3 cup chicken broth
First, preheat your oven to 350°F and line your baking sheets with parchment paper. Not a worry if you do not have any parchment paper, you can easily use some non-stick spray instead.
Grate your cheese and shred your carrots. Next, grab a medium bowl and mix in the flour and baking powder. If you are using an electric mixer, grab the mixer bowl and combine the yogurt, carrot, cheddar, oatmeal, and half of the flour mixture. (Use a separate bowl if you do not have a mixer.) Mix on the lowest setting with the dough paddle and slowly add the remaining flour mixture.
Once you have added the remainder of the flour mixture, add in the egg and gradually add the chicken broth. Turn up the mixer to medium until the ingredients are combined well. Scoop about 1 TSP of the dough, roll it into a ball and place it on the baking sheet. Using a fork, flatten your dough balls slightly as they will puff up a little.
Keep in mind that you can make these portions bigger or smaller so that they are size appropriate for your pup. Though these biscuits do not expand much when cooked, we recommend leaving at least 1cm of space between portions to ensure they cook evenly.
Bake each batch for about 12 minutes or until golden brown, and of course, bake times may vary depending on oven. Remove the biscuits from the oven, and place them on a cooling rack to completely cool. We recommend letting the biscuits completely cool, as any residual moisture can spoil them faster.
For storage, put them in an airtight container in the freezer for up to two weeks. For more immediate usage, store the biscuits in an airtight container in the fridge for up to 3 days.
Let us know how delicious your pup thinks these biscuits are. Hope you and your family enjoyed making them as much as we did! Any requests for what we should make next!?
