Healthy Treats for your Best Friend

There is no denying that our dogs are always there for us, offering unconditional love and companionship while asking for so little in return. Why not reward them with homemade dog biscuits, which are not only healthier, but more economical as well.

These treats last up to 4 months in the freezer or 2 weeks in the refrigerator. That is if they last that long!

Peanut Butter Dog Biscuits

Makes approximately 40 small biscuits

1-1/2 cups whole wheat flour
1/4 cup old fashioned oats
1 t. baking powder
1 T. flax seed
3/4 cup soy or skim milk
3/4 cup peanut butter
1 T. honey

Mix dry ingredients in large mixing bowl.
Process milk, peanut butter, and honey in a blender until smooth.
Add to dry ingredients in bowl and mix with a wooden spoon until combined.
Roll out to 1/4″ thickness on a lightly floured board.
Cut into shapes with cookie cutters.
Bake 20 minutes and cool on a wire rack.

What’s cooking? Smelling the peanut butter.

Licking the bowl.

And now fully committed.

Looks like we’ve got a satisfied customer!

      • Apparently my food processor (an old Cuisinart) doesn’t like it when you try mixing liquids. The milk sprayed out all over me and the kitchen! Never had that happen before. So I quickly transferred the mixture into the blender and proceeded. Lucy and Riley are now enjoying their peanut butter biscuits. The kitchen smells so good, I want to eat one, too!

      • Oh my! My processor didn’t do that, but am so glad you told me. Think I’ll edit the blog post and make mention of it so that doesn’t happen to anyone else. I’m glad to hear you stayed with the recipe in spite of the mishap, and that the dogs are enjoying the biscuits.

  1. My Midge is getting these this weekend when I have the time to make them….
    Love the picture of Miss Sofie patiently waiting.
