Peanut Butter Dog Biscuits

By • April 24, 2014 • 4 Comments

Author Notes: Easy-peasy homemade dog treats you can whip together in no time and feel good about giving your pup. Try adding in bits of bacon for a very special treat (but give Fido those sparingly). erinmcdowell

Makes about 3 dozen medium biscuits

  • 1/2 cup natural, unsalted peanut butter
  • 1 cup water
  • 2 tablespoons vegetable oil (or use the oil that has separated from the natural peanut butter inside the jar)
  • 1 1/2 cup whole wheat flour
  • 1 1/2 cup all-purpose flour
  1. Preheat the oven to 350º F. Line two baking sheets with parchment paper.
  2. In the bowl of an electric mixer fitted with the paddle attachment, combine the peanut butter, water, and oil.
  3. Add the flours gradually, mixing until the mixture comes together to form a smooth dough, 2 to 3 minutes. (This can also be done by hand, though the kneading will take longer -- 6 to 8 minutes.)
  4. Roll out the dough on a lightly floured surface to about 1/4-inch thick. Cut out biscuits using a floured cookie cutter, and transfer to the prepared baking sheets. Leave at least 1/4 inch between each biscuit to ensure even baking (the biscuits don’t spread much).
  5. Bake until golden brown on the bottom and edges, about 12 to 18 minutes (depending on the size of the cookie cutter). Cool completely before serving to your pooch.

Made this and my doggie is so happy. I rolled the dough into two thin logs and then flattened them in saran wrap, froze for 30 minutes and slices them into little biscuit logs. Easy peasy, and would be easy to change up. She's happy, I'm happy, so win-win! Thanks for the recipe.

How about substituting some healthy bone broth ( like chicken) for the liquid, and maybe a healthier oil like coconut? Also, I'll try using all whole wheat flour, I don't think my pups will mind! Good to see recipes like this on Food 52! Love the picture
