I have made this recipe using 1 egg & using the above amounts of ingredients. This I have made many years ago. I am testing this for my shih tzu in the next day or so.

You can alternatively make fewer biscuits. Mix together a half jar of 6 oz Baby Food Applesauce with a 4 oz jar of Baby Food Strained carrots, sweet potato or squash. Add 1/2 cup rolled oats & let sit for 10 minutes. Add 1 beaten egg with 1 tsp vanilla. Mix in enough flour to make a dough consistent with cookie dough. Use about 1 to 1 1/2 cups flour.
