Cheesy twists are perfect for a poochie party! The Flaxseed adds a crunchy, nutty flavor and is rich in essential fatty acids and fiber, helping to maintain a healthy immune system.
You Will Need:
10 oz (300 g) wheat and gluten free flour
2 oz (50 g) low fat cheddar cheese
1 oz (25 g) low fat parmesan cheese, grated
1 tablespoon chopped thyme
2 tablespoons milled flaxseed
4 fl oz (125 ml) olive oil
3½ fl oz (105 ml) cold water
- Mix the flour, cheese, thyme and flaxseed in a large bowl. Add the oil and combine. Add the water a little at a time until the mixture forms a firm dough.
- Knead the dough on a lightly floured surface and divide into 1½ inch (3.5 cm) balls. Roll out each ball into a 6 inch (15 cm) sausage. Pat lightly with the rolling pin to flatten, then hold both ends and twist in opposite directions.
- Place the twists on a greased baking sheet, ½ inch (1 cm) apart. Bake in a preheated oven. 325°F (160°C) for 30-35 minutes or until golden brown in color. Remove from the oven and leave the twists to cool on the baking sheet. The twists will keep for 7-10 days in an airtight tin or container.
