Make Your Own Dog Biscuits

We love our pets in the Nutmeg Collective (see the evidence here.)  You can join Vanessa and her girls in baking some treats for your four-footed creatures.

.  .  .  .

We did so much baking over the holidays, I was so tired of eating baked goods. The girls like baking, but they're tiny and don't eat much. We had a Sunday afternoon in front of us with no plans and they wanted to be in the kitchen so bad. So! Homemade dog biscuits.

This is the recipe they used:

2 c flour

1 c oats

1/3 c wheat germ

1/2 c peanut butter (we used creamy/natural)

1 1/4 c hot water

We threw it all in the stand mixer and it came together quickly, like play-doh and not nearly as sticky as I thought it’d be.

Roll out with a little flour and use cookie cutters to cut:

(We didn't have a bone-shaped cutter, but we had a kitty head. The girls thought that was funny.)

Spray baking sheet, line up pieces. Mix a little honey with water to thin it, brush on the un-baked dog biscuits.

Bake in preheated oven, 350 degrees, about 30 minutes - until browned.

Like other baked goods, these are perishable - use them up quickly or freeze for later-time treats.
