Happy Sunday!

Next month I am volunteering to take part in Pitbull Awareness Day at Balboa Park.  As you are probably aware, pitbulls don’t have the best reputation, but if you own one then you know they can make really loving and loyal pets.  As a volunteer, I am baking some yummy dog treats to be sold at the event.  I made a test batch last night, and the girls loved them.

If you are interested in baking your dog some treats, then I’m sure you will be satisfied with this quick and easy recipe.

Peanut Butter Dog Biscuit Recipe with Oatmeal

Butter Dog Biscuit Recipe with Oatmeal

Source:  Dog Treat Kitchen.com

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 (I used smooth this time)

1 1/4 cups hot water

Additional flour for rolling

Instructions:

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.

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. 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.

If you and your dog can’t wait that long, cool them 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 dog cookies. This is the same way you would do for human peanut butter cookies.

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

Storing: This peanut butter dog biscuit recipe makes biscuits that will last in a sealed air tight container at room temperature for one week. You can store them in the refrigerator for 3 weeks and in the freezer for up to 6 months.
