Yumbo Cookies !

Mom has been experimenting with some dog cookie recipes and this one we REALLY like one. We have called them Yumbo Cookies.

1 egg
1/2 finely grated apple (squeeze juice out - I just put it in some paper towel and squeeze)
1/2 cup finely grated carrot
1/2 cup mashed banana
1 tablespoon honey
1/2 teaspoon salt ( it helps dry them out)
1 1/2 cups whole wheat flour (I use rice flour because of Reilly's allergies)
You may need to add more or less flour depending on the humidity at the time.

1. Preheat oven to 300 degrees F (150 degrees C). Lightly grease or line baking sheets.
2. Stir together the egg, salt, apple,carrot, banana, and honey in a medium bowl; blend thoroughly. Stir in the flour mix well. Turn dough out onto a floured board and roll to 1/4 inch thick. Cut into desired shapes with a cookie cutter, place on prepared baking sheet.
3. Bake biscuits in preheated oven until dried and golden brown, about 30 minutes, depending on size. Remove from oven and cool on a wire rack.
4. Store in a sealed container.

A Variation
You can also add 1/3 cup of peanut butter if you want too - you may need to add a little more flour if you do.
