4 oz wheat germ (if you haven’t got this, just use 4 oz more of wholewheat flour)

4 oz melted bacon fat or beef dripping

1 egg

120 ml water

Combine all ingredients into a non-sticky dough. If it’s a little sticky, add a bit more flour. If it’s dry, add a bit more water. Roll it out to around a half inch thickness and cut into suitable sizes.

Bake on 350 degrees F for about 20 minutes – they should brown on the top.

Turn off the oven, flip the cookies, and leave them in the oven until it goes cold. This makes them crisp – the word ‘biscuits’ means ‘baked twice’.

You can crumble some yummy bacon into the mix, or for your cats, 4 oz of minced catnip makes them crazy for it!
