Author: Pam - For the Love of Cooking


  • 2 tbsp unsalted butter room temperature
  • 2 tbsp olive oil
  • 1 egg
  • 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
  • 1/4 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 1/2 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-shaped cookie cutter, cut out the dog bones.
  • Bake until lightly 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.
