Our Director of Human Resources, Mollie is quite the baking afficionado and has provided us with a recipe that her German Shepherds Emmie and Kali love — PB Bacon Cookies.
1 cup natural creamy peanut butter
3/4 cup nonfat milk
1 large egg (or 1/4 cup unsweetened applesauce)
2 cups whole wheat flour (measured correctly)
1 Tablespoon baking powder
1/3 cup (30g) oats (either whole-rolled or quick oats are fine)
2-3 strips cooked bacon, chopped
- Preheat oven to 325°F. Line two large baking sheets with parchment paper or silicone baking mats. Set aside.
- In a large bowl, mix the peanut butter, milk, and egg together with spatula. Add the flour and baking powder. You may need to turn the dough out onto a floured work surface and use your hands to work in the flour. Mix in the oats and bacon. The dough is extremely thick and heavy. On a floured work surface and with a floured or silicon rolling pin, roll dough out to 1/4 inch thickness. Cut into shapes using fun bone or breed shaped cookie cutters. Place 1 inch apart on the baking sheets. Bake for 18-20 minutes, or until very lightly browned on the bottom. Remove from the oven, and flip the treats to bake the other side for 10-12 more minutes.
- Allow to cool completely before serving to your pup. Store at room temperature or in the refrigerator for up to 1 week.
- Freeze: freeze up to 2 months.
