Crunchy Dog Biscuit Recipe

I am looking for a dog biscuit recipe where the biscuits will come out hard like Milkbone biscuits. I have two different recipes I have tried, but both came out chewy and they would tear apart instead of breaking or "snapping" apart. Something to help breath would be great too and no preservatives. Thanks for any help you can give.

This is a great recipe for hard cheese biscuits that my dog goes crazy for. Hope this helps.

Recipe Source:


1 c Uncooked Oatmeal

1 1/2 c Hot Water or Meat Juices

4 oz (1 cup) Grated Cheese

1 Egg, Beaten

1 c Wheat Germ

1/4 c Margarine

1/2 c Powdered Milk

1/4 ts Salt

1 c Cornmeal

3 c Whole Wheat Flour


In large bowl pour hot water over oatmeal and margarine: let stand for 5 minutes. Stir in powdered

milk, grated cheese, salt and egg. Add cornmeal and wheat germ. Mix well. Add flour, 1/3 cup at a

time, mixing well after each addition. Knead 3 or 4 minutes, adding more flour if necessary to

make a very stiff dough. Pat or roll dough to 1/2 inch thickness. Cut into bone shaped biscuits and

place on a greased baking sheet. Bake for 1 hour at 300 degrees. Turn off heat and leave in oven

for 1 1/2 hours or longer.

Makes approximately 2 1/4 pounds.
