You may have thought of baking your own dog treats because you just don’t trust anything store bought anymore. Other benefits are that baking your own is cost effective and it’s fun! However, some might shy away because they aren’t bakers, or maybe they just don’t have the time.

EVERYTHING YOU NEED:
1 Cup of Barley Flour
1 Cup of Whole Wheat Flour
½ Cup Cornmeal
1 egg, beaten
3 T. of Vegetable Oil
½ of Beef Bouillon Cube
½ Cup Hot Water
1 4oz Jar of Heinz Beef Baby Food
In a bowl, whisk egg, oil, and beef cube dissolved in ½ cup of hot water.
Add baby food.
