You and your precious pet will love these grain free blueberry dog biscuits. Your dog will go crazy for these tasty, crunchy treats. And you will feel good about spoiling them with a homemade treat that is healthy and made gluten free with brown rice flour and coconut flour. Below, there is an option of making your own brown rice flour.
How to make homemade brown rice flour?
- Pour ½ cup dry brown rice into a high-powered blender, coffee grinder or Magic Bullet. FYI, my food processor was not strong enough, nor was my regular blender. I found success with the Ninja mini processor.
- Grind rice in pulses for a few seconds to break the hull, then blend for 30 second to 1 minute intervals. Shake blender or grinder and repeat grinding the rice until it turns to flour. If your blender is struggling, take some rice out, and grind less at a time.
- 1 cup of brown rice will make approximately 1 ½ cups brown rice flour.
Can dogs eat blueberries?
According to the AKC website, dogs can eat blueberries and they are actually quite good for them. Blueberries are low in calories and high in vitamins, antioxidants and fiber. Eating organic fruit is best, but always wash before using to remove any dirt or unhealthy residue. As always, if you have any concerns as to whether your dog should eat blueberries or any food they have never had before, please check with your vet.
How to make grain free blueberry dog treats?[easy-image-collage id=4937]
- Combine brown rice flour, coconut flour, flaxseed meal, oil, eggs, blueberries, water, cinnamon and ginger in a large bowl or in a food processor.
- Mix until dough comes together in a large ball. Spoon the dough onto parchment paper and make sure it is not too sticky or dry. Add a tablespoon or two of brown rice flour if the dough feels too wet. If too dry, add a tablespoon or two of water and mix to combine.
- If using silicone molds, lightly spray with non stick baking spray. Fill each mold with dough and press down to evenly shape into a biscuit.
- If you don't have the molds, you can form the dough into a small ball and then press down it down onto a parchment lined baking sheet. You can form the dough into the shape of a cookie, your dog won't care!
- Place the silicone molds onto a cookie sheet and bake for 45 minutes in 350°F oven. Turn off oven and let the biscuits cool naturally in the oven.
- Remove molds from oven, turn over and gently press down to remove biscuits. Leave on rack overnight and they will continue to get crispy.
