(wheat-free) cheesy mint

(wheat-free) cheesy mint dog treat/biscuit recipe
Ohh something new today. I see Spelt flour a lot but I’ve finally gotten around to using it, and I have no idea why I waited so long. It’s very easy to work with and the dogs loved it (not that they’re all that picky … )
It’s wheat, but not gluten-free, so it’s perfect for those trying to feed wheat-free for reasons not due to gluten intolerance.
