I was browsing foodgawker’s website and came across a blog that had these homemade dog treats. It is one of my book marked sites now for favorite food blogs. I decided to make these for my family’s dogs Toby and Turbo. They are both Bishons. Ben and I had to watch them this last week. They were pretty good dogs up until the day they had to go home. One of them was naughty and decided to do his only job inside. I will be giving these treats to my dogs tomorrow, how ironic after being a bad dog right? Oh well, gotta love dogs and spoil them rotten. Here are some pictures of them below.
I guess if you really want to make them for yourself to eat then you can too. I haven’t tried them at all yet, maybe I will have some for breakfast tomorrow morning. LOL.
1/2 cup peanut butter
1/4 cup honey
1 tablespoon olive oil
1 cup chicken broth
1 cup rolled oats
1 cup whole wheat flour
1 cup unbleached all-purpose flour
1/4 cup wheat germ (optional)
Preheat oven to 350 degrees. Whisk together peanut butter, honey, oil and chicken broth. In a separate bowl, combine flours and oatmeal. Mix dry ingredients into wet ingredients. Place dough on flour dusted surface. Roll or press dough out to about 3/8” inch thick (mine varied somewhere between 1/4” and 1/2”). Use a small bone cookie cutter to cut out cookies. My cookie cutter was 2”x3/4”, but for larger dogs you may want a larger cookie cutter. Roll out leftover scraps and cut out as many as possible. Put cut out cookies on a parchment lined baking sheet. Bake for 14-16 minutes. Transfer to a cooling rack.
For gifts, once bones are cooled, place them in cellophane bags and tie with ribbon. Note, these will be more the consistency and softness of a cookie, not a biscuit.
