Bake Some Biscuits For Your Pup

During these dog days of summer, we like to stay in our air-conditioned homes as much as possible. Looking for a project to pass the afternoon? Whip up a batch of nutty treats for your favorite canine companion! Dogs go wild for these simple and all-natural biscuits, and you’ll  have a great time making them.

Start by mixing 4 cups of whole-wheat flour, 2 tbsp. of baking powder and 1 cup of old-fashioned rolled oats in a large bowl. Once they’re combined, add 2 cups of milk and 2 cups of smooth organic peanut butter. Use your hands to knead the mixture until it forms a soft dough.

Lightly flour a tabletop and roll the dough out to ¼ inch thickness. Use small cookie cutters or a pizza wheel to slice the dough into bite-sized shapes. Arrange the dog biscuits on a greased cookie sheet and bake them at 375 degrees Fahrenheit for about 20 minutes. Remove them to a cooling rack. When the dog treats are completely cool, transfer them to an airtight container with a lid. They’ll keep for about a week in that container. If you want them to last longer, store them in the freezer for up to three months. (Just don’t forget to thaw them out before giving them to Fido!)

Have you ever made homemade dog treats? What are some of your pup’s favorites?
