These are among the first biscuits for dogs born in the kitchen of canine morsels: Always for Billa, of which I told you and for which everything started. I’ll never know for sure if they work for how we would expect, that is with a calming effect, but apart from that I found that dogs the taste of chamomile love it very much. So here’s my chamomile biscuits, dried bones and wholemeal flour that will make your dog lick the mustache!
I also dedicate them to Argos the dog and his human Beatrice. I do not know them in person but on Instagram (you find it looking @argos_the_greek) Beatrice and I chatted and our love for dogs is very inordinate. Argos is a peperino from what he tells me (that’s why a chamomile biscuit would be well accepted!) and form with her a strong team. Albeit wonderfully imprefect and among others and lows. A full life. Beatrice writes about everything she knows about dogs on her beautiful site www.justmydog.com: Tips, opinions, tutorials, articles in depth. If you are looking for a point of reference to live the best with your dog, you have found it!

Chamomile Biscuits: Ingredients for 22 biscuits
- Wholemeal flour 150 g
- Acacia honey 1 tablespoon soup
- Chamomile in flowers 1.5 tablespoons
- Fresh Brewer’s Yeast 3 G
- Water 60 g
To make chamomile biscuits, first you can literally make chamomile tea. I warmed the water provided in the recipe and I left in infusion half of the chamomile indicated, leaving it to rest for about 15 minutes. You can also avoid this step *. Having obtained the chamomile, keep it warm and in a bowl combine flour, honey and crumbled yeast; Now pour the chamomile without filtering it and also incorporates the chamomile in the remaining flowers.
Knead by hand with force: the more you work the more the dough will develop the glutinica mesh and activate the light leavening. I warn that this is a hard rather dough, I do not recommend adding liquids.
Spread the dough on the work surface lightly floured and lay it down to a thickness of half a centimeter; I used a pasta bowl shaped like a bone, about 7 cm in length, but you can use the shape you prefer or cut seplicemente knife to get squares or strips.
Recline the chamomile biscuits on a dripping pan lined with parchment paper and cook them in a pre-heated static oven at 175 ° for 25 minutes. Ready!
* If you want you can add warm water to the dough and then incorporate all the chamomile flowers.
You can store chamomile biscuits for a week or more-depending on the humidity of your home and the same-in a well-closed tin box or in a paper bag. You can certainly freeze them from cooked.
- Their taste is very delicate and naturally sweet, also the wholemeal flour is fibrous and helps the intestinal transit
- Chamomile-even if it is not a proven science-has a calming effect and the dogs its taste is very fond of: try adding a pinch of grated orange zest to the dough!
