Many recipes for common flat dog biscuit are yeast-free. Yeast in cooking is typically used to make something rise and maintain a fluffy texture, such as bread. Dog biscuits typically do not rise and are made with different varieties of flour. Yeast-free cooking is popular among people who maintain a gluten-free diet, which includes no grains. Gluten-free foods are also available for dogs with grain allergies. Yeast- and grain-free dog biscuits can be made at home with ingredients found in health food stores.

Skill level:

Things you need

  • 1/2 cup hot water

  1. 1

    Preheat oven to 176 degrees C. Mix hot water and the bouillon cube until the bouillon is dissolved.

  2. 2

    Combine the bouillon with all other ingredients and mix well. Finer flour makes stickier dough. Oat and course rice flour biscuit dough may be somewhat crumbly.

  3. 3

    Knead the dough and form into a ball.

  4. 4

    Roll dough to 1/2-inch thickness and cut into shapes with cookie cutters. The dough will yield about 24 cookie-sized biscuits.

  5. 5

    Place dough on baking tray and bake for 30 minutes until biscuits are stiff and browned.

  6. 6

    Cool biscuits. They can be stored at room temperature for about a week.
