Homemade Dog Biscuits



If there's anything in this world that can get my 11-month old puppy to stop chasing his tail rambunctiously all over the house, or sit for an extended period of time while I have a slobber-free conversion with my husband, it's peanut butter. Usually it's a cone full of that super-magical spread, but after going through tub after tub, I decided to mix it up and was inspired to make our own homemade dog treats. With peanut butter. Duh.


But seriously, Oliver went NUTS (no pun intended) for these treats. Plus, how cute is that classic dog-treat shaped cookie cutter? 


Homemade Dog Biscuits

Ingredients:
  • 3 eggs, separated
  • 1 tbsp. coconut oil
  • 1 tbsp. honey
  • 8 oz. chicken stock
  • 2 cups whole wheat flour
  • 1 cup all-purpose flour
  • heaping 1/3 cup cornmeal
  • 1 cup smooth organic peanut butter

In a small bowl, whisk together 2 eggs, oil, and honey. 

In the bowl of a stand mixer, mix together the flours and cornmeal. With the mixer on low, slowly pour in the egg mixture until smooth. Then add in the peanut butter and combine until smooth. 

Roll out the dough into a 1/2-inch disk, and use a bone-shaped cookie cutter to make as many biscuits as you can. Ball up and re-roll out the dough as you need.

Preheat the oven to 325 degrees F. Whisk the final egg in a small bowl. Brush the biscuits with the egg and let them stand for 10 minutes before baking (allows them to crisp up).

Place the biscuits on a baking sheet liked with parchment paper or silicon baking sheet. Cook for 15 minutes. Remove from the oven and allow to cool completely before removing from the baking sheet and placing into a container.

  2. P.S. I didn't see in the instructions where to add the broth so I mixed it in with the eggs, oil and honey before mixing into the dry ingredients. It seemed to work. :)
