Method

Turmeric & Banana Biscuit

  1. Sift the flour, turmeric and cinnamon into a bowl
  2. Add the mashed banana and using your hands start to combine with the dry ingredients
  3. Slowly start to add water a little at a time until you have a firm dough. If your mixture is too dry add a little more and if it is too wet add a little more flour.

Gingerbread Biscuit

  1. Sift the flour, ginger and cinnamon into a bowl
  2. Add the molasses and using your hands start to combine with the dry ingredients
  3. Slowly start to add water a little at a time until you have a firm dough. If your mixture is too dry add a little more and if it is too wet add a little more flour.

Peanut Butter Biscuit

  1. Sift the flour into a bowl

  1. Lightly flour a clean surface
  1. Using a rolling pin individually roll the different flavoured dough to the same thickness as a pound coin.
  1. Now here comes the fun part, using each of the different flavoured dough create your Easter egg design. As you can see we used the gingerbread dough as the base of our egg and then decorated it with the other flavoured dough. However you can be as creative as you like with yours, we even managed to make some individual biscuits with the remaining dough.
  1. Place the biscuit onto the lined baking tray making sure to leave 1cm gap between each biscuit
  1. Bake for 10-12minutes or until golden and no longer soft to touch
  1. Transfer to a wire rack and leave to cool – please make sure the biscuits are completely cooled before giving to your dog

Keep the biscuits in an airtight container for 5-7days
