  • ServesN/A


    • 2 cups all-purpose flour
    • 1/2 cup wheat germ
    • 1/2 cup brewer’s yeast (available at health-food stores)
    • 1 teaspoon salt
    • 3 tablespoon vegetable oil (canola is good)
    • 1 cup chicken stock


Heat oven to 400 degrees.
Line a sheet pan with parchment paper (or grease the pan). Mix flour, wheat germ, brewer’s yeast, and salt together in a medium bowl. In another mixing bowl, combine oil and garlic. Alternately add 1 cup chicken stock and flour mixture in 3 parts; mix until well combined. Turn out onto a floured surface and knead about 2 minutes by hand. The dough will be sticky.

Roll dough out to about 1/2 inch thick. Cut out various shapes and place on prepared baking sheets. Bake 20 - 25 minutes. Turn off oven, leaving oven door closed. Leave pan in oven for 1 1/2 hours or up to overnight to allow the treats to dry.

Store the treats in zip-closure bags in the refrigerator or you can freeze them as well.
