We recently shared with you an easy dog treat recipe from In the Dog Kitchen by Julie Van Rosendaal.
Of course, we wanted to try out another for our doggie friends and decided on Peanut Butter Bones. We searched high and low for our dog bone cookie cutters, but you know how it goes, they weren’t to be found when we needed them.
So we bring you Peanut Butter Pineapples instead!
Little tip: If your dog is guilty of enjoying his own feces from time to time, add some chunks of canned pineapple to his food, and that should prevent it!
2 1/2 cups whole-wheat flour
1/2 cup old-fashioned or quick-cooking oats
1/2 cup chopped peanuts (optional)- We opted to leave these out for a smoother texture
1 cup peanut butter (we used natural peanut butter- just peanuts and salt)
1 cup water or milk
2 Tbsp honey
Preheat the oven to 350F. Line 2 baking sheets with parchment paper.
In a large bowl, combine the flour, oats, and peanuts (if using). Add the peanut butter, water, and honey and stir until you have a stiff dough.
On a lightly floured surface, knead the dough until well blended, then roll it out to about 1/4 inch thick. Cut into bones, shapes, or strips and place the cookies on the prepared baking sheets.
Bake for about 20 minutes, until golden. Let the cookies cool on the sheets, or turn off the oven and leave the cookies inside to harden as they cool. Store in a tightly sealed container.
