Presumably Tasty Dog Treats

My dog loves treats as much (..or more) as the average dog. Today, I made him some treats and so far, he approves! They’re very easy and fun to make, by yourself or with the little ones since cookie cutting is involved.

Peanut Butter Dog Biscuits 

Ingredients:

  • 2 cups whole wheat flour (you can use another type of flour if your dog is sensitive to wheat)
  • 1 cup rolled oats
  • 1/3 cup peanut butter, chunky or smooth**
  • 1 1/4 cups hot water
  • Additional flour for rolling

** on choosing the peanut butter, make sure it’s sugar and salt free. It’s very hard to find, but you can always blend up some unsalted peanuts.

Directions:

Preheat oven to 350° F

Mix dry ingredients together. Mix in the peanut butter and hot water. You may need to add more flour if the dough is too sticky. Knead the dough well. Roll out the dough into 1/4″ thickness and cut into shapes with dog cookie cutters (or cute marine themed ones..).

This recipe doesn’t call for it, but I put an egg wash (one egg whisked with a fork and then brushed on with a pastry brush) on the treats before I baked them. It gives them a nice sheen once they’re baked. Here’s how they look before baking.

Bake on a lightly greased cookie sheet for 40 minutes. Turn off the oven and let them cool overnight. Alternatively, cool them completely on a wire rack before serving.

I assume they’re good, my dog Jackson approves!
