Peanut Butter Dog Biscuits

Does your dog deserve a treat?  These home-made peanut butter dog biscuits are easy to make, healthy, and from the way my dogs wolfed them down, delicious!

Ingredients:

  • 2 cups plain flour (you can use another type of flour if your dog is sensitive to wheat)peanut butter dog biscuits
  • 1 cup rolled oats
  • 1/3 cup peanut butter, chunky or smooth (I used smooth this time)
  • 1 1/4 cups hot water

Additional flour for rolling

Instructions for making peanut butter dog biscuits:

    1. Preheat oven to 350° F
    2. Mix dry ingredients together.
    3. Mix in the peanut butter and hot water. You may need to add more flour if the dough is too sticky.
    4. Knead the dough well.
    5. Roll out the dough into 1/4″ thickness and cut into shapes with dog cookie cutters.
    6. Bake on a lightly greased cookie sheet for 40 minutes. Turn off the oven and let them cool overnight.

 

Note – 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.

If  your dog can’t wait that long, cool the peanut butter dog biscuits completely on a wire rack before serving.

Instead of cutting out more shapes with the left over peanut butter and oatmeal dough, I rolled it into balls. Then I made a cross hatch fork mark on the peanut butter dog biscuits. This is the same way you would do for human peanut butter cookies.

After: These get very hard, just the way dogs like them!

Storing: This peanut butter dog biscuits recipe makes biscuits that will last in a sealed air tight container at room temperature for one week. They keep in the fridge for longer and can also be frozen
