  • 2

    tbsp unsalted butter, room temperature

  • 2

    tbsp olive oil

  • 1


  • 1

    cup milk

  • 1

    apple, peeled & grated (no pits, seeds, or core from apple!!!)

  • cups whole wheat flour

  • cups white flour

  • cups cheddar cheese, shredded

  • ¼

    cup cooked bacon, chopped into bits

  • 3

    tbsp fresh parsley, chopped


Preheat the oven to 375 degrees. Line a baking sheet with a silpat mat. Combine the butter, olive oil, and egg together with a whisk until well combined. Add the milk and grated apple then whisk. Add the whole wheat flour and white flour; mix until just combined. Add most of the cheddar, bacon, and parsley. Mix until combined. Side Note: If it's too sticky, add a bit more flour. If it's too dry, add a bit more milk. On a lightly floured work surface, knead the dough for 30 seconds until smooth. Roll out the dough into a 10-inch circle, about ½ inch thick. Sprinkle some of the remaining bacon bits, cheese, and parsley on the dough then lightly press down and place on the prepared baking sheet. Using a bone shape cookie cutter, cut out the dog bones. Bake until light golden, 20 minutes. Transfer to a wire rack and cool completely. Store in an airtight container in the refrigerator for up to 2 weeks or the freezer for 6 months
