Drool Dog Recipe: Peanut Butter Bones from In the Dog Kitchen

Bartleby hound1We 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!

Ingredients:

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

Instructions:

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.

Here’s what Bartleby the Hound, rescued from the Richmond SPCA, thought of them!

Mint Buckwheat Dog Biscuits by Lola the Pitty

buckwheat-dog-treats-18-blog

 

We’re going to say it– sometimes dogs’ breath is just rank! Odor-free natural bully sticks can help in that department, but between chew time and teeth brushing, what else can help?

Parsley and mint are two ingredients that can help freshen breath, which is exactly what is in this week’s Dog Treat by Lola the Pitty

Mint Buckwheat Dog Biscuits.

We were intrigued by the use of buckwheat flour in this recipe, and mint and parsley– well, that’s something doggie breath can always use!

 

Ingredients:

  • 1½ cups buckwheat flour (She used Bob’s Red Mill)
  • 4 Tablespoons fresh parsley, finely chopped
  • 2 Tablespoons fresh mint, finely chopped
  • 1 Tablespoon pure honey
  • 2 Tablespoons olive oil
  • 1 egg, beaten
  • water (approx. 1-3 tsp)

For instructions on how to make these delicious treats, see Mint Buckwheat Dog Biscuits by Lola the Pitty.

Many thanks to Sarah and Lola for sharing this great recipe! We hope our canine fans enjoy.
