Phoebe & Cooper’s Peanut Butter Biscuit Deliciousness

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.

***Spoiler Alert***

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:

One thought on “Phoebe & Cooper’s Peanut Butter Biscuit Deliciousness

  1. I was wondering what the curly metal things were. On closer look I see they were licking the batter off the beaters. Funny – it brought back memories of when I was a kid and my mom let me lick the beaters, spoon and bowl. Isn’t it amazing how dogs can conjure up all kinds of ‘people’ memories?
