¼ cup grated Parmesan. 

Knead dough.

Roll out dough on floured surface to ¼ inch thickness.

 Use cookie cutters to cut into shapes.

Sprinkle shapes with reserved Parmesan. Dehydrate at 155 degrees in an Excalibur dehydrator for 6 hours or until desired crispness is achieved.

Personal Note.... I love love love these! And so do all the Bichons at White Dog Cottage. Waiting for forever families can be tough, but home made treats and love make everything better. REMEMBER ADOPT DO NOT SHOP!

Oreo Pup!!

I'm SO excited my friends over at Kol's Notes told me about a goodie contest for a dehydrator.  I told mama to get busy and make something really tummy yummy.  So after many many tries mama came up with these yummy goodies that can be made directly in the dehydrator....frees the oven so mama can make even more goodies!

    • 1/2 cup coconut flour

    • You can chill if you want.

Now I have spied mama sampling these so you need to watch the humans cause these are super yummy.  Mama has also used doggy safe frosting and made little sandwiches out of these.

Dehydrated Blueberry Pancakes
1 1/3 cups of oat flour
2/3 cup millet flour
1 egg
1 tsp vanilla
1 cup plus a tiny bit more of water
Coconut oil for the pan 
Blueberries to your liking
Mix the flours and egg together.  Add the cup of water to the flours and mix well.  If need be add more water until you get a good consistency for pancakes.
Put a small amount of coconut oil in  a frying pan and add batter to the pancake size of your liking.  Drop your blueberries into the pancake.  Cook until lightly brown on one side and then flip and cook the other side until lightly brown or until the pancake is no longer wet in the center.
I put the pancakes in the refrigerator until I had some time to dehydrate them.
Since I don’t have a dehydrator, I put my oven on the lowest setting which was 170 degrees.  
I set my cooling rack on a backing sheet and using my pizza cutter, cut the pancake into bite sized bits.
The pizza cutter was amazing for cutting these bad boys.
The pizza cutter was amazing for cutting these bad boys.
They're not uniform in size, but who cares?
They’re not uniform in size, but who cares?
I place the cookie sheet with the cooling rack on it in the oven and baked them for about 2 hours and 40 minutes.   I was planning on three hours, but when I checked them, they were dry and crisp.

Now, get cooking!!!! You have the recipes!
