DIY Dog Treats

Dog snacks and treats can be filled with unhealthy additives and ingredients for your pet. Scrolling though the internet one day I came across this site, The Novice Chief, with cute and easy recipe for your puppy.

Peanut Butter Dog Biscuits

Yield: 24 medium bones

I have this set of bone cookie cutters and used the medium size for these biscuits.

ingredients:

  • 1 cup crunchy peanut butter
  • 1 large egg
  • 1/4 cup honey
  • 1 cup old fashioned oats
  • 2 cups whole wheat flour
  • 1/3 cup vegetable oil
  • 1/3 cup water

Optional:

  • 4 squares white almond bark
  • 1 teaspoon vegetable oil
  • sprinkle

directions:

  • Preheat oven to 350°F. Line cookie sheets with parchment paper, set aside.
  • In a stand mixer, combine all ingredients (peanut butter, egg, honey, oats, flour, oil and water), beating until a stiff dough forms.
  • Pat out dough into a rectangle, about 1 inch in depth. Using a bone shaped cookie cutter, cut into bones. Use all dough.
  • Bake for 30 minutes, flipping half way through. Transfer to a wire rack and let cool completely.
  • To Dip/Decorate:
  • Melt almond bark and oil in the microwave, stirring every 30 seconds. Once melted/smooth, dip half of bone into almond bark and lay on parchment paper. Decorate with sprinkles or chopped peanuts and let cool completely.
  • Store in an airtight container for up to 2 weeks.

I love how you can decorate them and they are a great gift idea for any pet owner.
