Treat time! I’ve previously experimented with baking homemade Liver Biscuits for Phoebe when my Mom came to visit last year, and boy, were they a hit! In fact, they were such a success that I decided that it was time to try my hand at baking once again, but this time I wanted to try a sweet treat to see if I could continue bringing smiles onto the faces of my happy, food-driven dogs.
I scoured the internet and found so many different recipes, and most seem to have the same basic ingredients, and also matched my (very low) baking skill levels. I finally decided to try out a basic recipe for Peanut Butter Dog Biscuits.
They were a huge resounding success! Not only were they easy and quick to make, but they were also a firm favourite for both Cooper and Phoebe! If you’re looking for something fun to do for your dog and a way to pass an empty hour, then this is what you should get cracking on doing! They are also low fuss and easy to make if you have kids in the house and want them to do a fun, indoor activity.
But enough of the talk, let’s get on with the recipe and instructions:
Phoebe & Cooper’s Peanut Butter Biscuit Deliciousness
- 1 cup flour
- 1/2 tablespoon baking powder
- 1/2 cup peanut butter (low salt)
- 1/2 cup milk
- Preheat oven to 180C (about 350F)
- Combine Flour and Baking Powder in a large bowl
- In a separate bowl combine milk and peanut butter until smooth
- Slowly mix dry ingredients and wet ingredients in a bowl until mixed to a “dough-y” consistency
- Lightly flour a surface
- Roll dough on flour surface and knead until soft
- Use cookie cutters to make shapes and place on greased oven pan
- Bake in oven for +/-15 minutes
- Once baked through place on cooling rack to cool,
- Give one to the dogs for the all important “taste test”, then place in containers for storage
See? Easy peasy! Here’s a few pictures of the process:
These will last in an air-tight container for about 2 weeks, but can also be sealed and frozen in the deep freeze for up to 3 months.
… these also make great gifts not only for your own dogs, but for friends with furbabies too!
Phoebe & Cooper’s Effectiveness Summary:
Issue Addressed: Training, Nutrition, Food, FUN
Tool(s) Used: Your kitchen and baking skills
Ease of Implementation: Easy
Effectiveness Rating: 5/5. Phoebe and Cooper absolutely loved these, and I will definitely be making them again soon. I recommend doubling the recipe though so you can freeze some as well to give out when going on walks, doing training, or just to spoil the dogs after a long day!
Have you got any suggestions for any other easy dog treats I can make?
