Low Oxalate Dog Biscuits

My children's pet chihuahua developed bladder stones, the sort that is caused by calcium oxalate. The following is a recipe I developed that is very low in oxalates, yet dogs seem to love it!

Makes about 12 dozen small (training sized) biscuits.

Ingredients:

  • 2 large ripe bananas, lightly mashed with a fork
  • 2 large eggs
  • 2/3 c milk
  • 4 c fine corn meal

Directions:

  1. In the bowl of a stand mixer, place the bananas. Using the paddle attachment, beat on medium low until smooth.
  2. Add eggs and milk. Beat about 3 minutes, or until well blended.
  3. Add 3 cups of corn meal. Beat on low for 1 minute. Increase speed to medium and beat until smooth.
  4. Add remaining corn meal, a quarter-cup at a time, until you have a soft dough that can be rolled into balls. (You may not need all of the corn meal.)
  5. Line 2 large cookie sheets with parchment paper and preheat the oven to 325 degrees F.
  6. Pinch off rounded teaspoons of dough and roll them into balls between your palms. Place them an inch apart on the prepared baking sheets. Using a fork that is dipped in water occasionally, press a fork pattern into each biscuit.
  7. Bake in the center of the oven for 20-30 minutes, or until very firm throughout. Transfer to a wire rack to fully cool. Store in airtight treat jar(s). Repeat until all the biscuits are made.
