Preheat oven to 350 degrees

Mix the chickpea flour, applesauce, and peanut butter together in a large bowl

Roll to a 1/4″ thickness, dusting the board with additional flour or a sprinkle of steel cut oats for visual contrast

Cut out your dog biscuits with your favorite cookie cutters and place on a parchment lined cookie sheet

Bake cookies for 22 minute or until just golden brown around the edges

When done, you can turn off the oven but leave your baking sheets inside for a crunchier cookie, just keep an eye out that they don’t over brown

When cool, store your dog cookies in an airtight container for longer shelf life.
