1 1/2 cups whole wheat flour
1/2 cup wheat germ
1/2 cup melted bacon fat
1 large egg
1/2 cup cold water
Preheat the oven to 350°F.
Combine ingredients in a bowl and mix by hand until dough forms. Add more flour if the dough is too sticky. Add more bacon fat or water if the dough stays too stiff.
Roll out onto a floured surface, to a thickness of just under 1/2-inch. Cut into 1x4-inch bars and transfer to a cookie sheet. Poke divots into the bars and bake in a preheated oven for approximately 20 minutes or until lightly browned. Turn the oven off, flip the treats, and place back in the oven until cool. The recipe makes 2 dozen treats.
Treats can be stored in an airtight container at room temperature.
