We have four dogs and their favorite past time is
chewing, gobbling up and leaving crumbs all over the carpet. This hobby of theirs can get very expensive. Let’s not also forget to mention all of the preservatives and extra wheat that isn’t good for your best friend’s tummy.
I’ve been searching for all natural ingredient biscuits for them, but they’re so expensive. I’m not one to think that my dogs aren’t worth it, they certainly are, but what if I could make them for a fraction of the cost?
I played around with some recipes and found the perfect one that can be changed around for flavoring. I’m going to share with you my recipe for homemade peanut butter dog biscuits. What I think is wonderful, is that these biscuits are chock-full of protein from peanut butter and eggs. It’s just what your pooch has been asking for!
Our dogs literally stayed in the kitchen, by the oven, waiting for these bad boys to come out. I don’t think they realized they had to wait for them to cool off! It was definitely hilarious watching them.
Ready for the recipe?
- 2 cups flour (more for rolling)
- 1 cup corn meal
- 1/2 cup peanut butter
- 1/2 cup water
- 2 eggs
- 3 Tbsp vegetable oil
- Cookie Cutters of your choice
- Preheat oven to 450 degrees
- Combine the eggs, oil and peanut butter.
- Beat in the flour and corn meal until it resembles a course meal.
- Slowly add the water until a soft dough forms.
- Move the dough to a flat surface and work in the remaining flour mixture, until all ingredients are mixed in well.
- Roll the dough out to a half inch thick.
- Begin using your cookie cutters to cut the forms you want.
- Use remaining dough until it is all used up.
- Place cookies on a cookie sheet and bake for 30 minutes.
- Allow to cool and serve!
- This recipe is very interchangeable. I also made a batch of chicken flavored cookies for my girls. I substituted the peanut butter and water for a full cup of chicken broth. You can do the same with beef broth.
They can be made into so many shapes including the traditional dog bone ones. Since my dogs enjoyed them so much I’m going to invest in those forms so that I can use them the next time. I also hope you’ve read the notes at the bottom of the recipe card. You can make this same recipe and substitute the peanut butter for chicken or beef too.
