Introduction: Dog Biscuits

Do you have a dog that loves treats? Here's an simple recipe for a delicious dog biscuit.

Miles and Roxie love these treats.

Step 1: Ingredients

I bet you have most of the ingredients in your cupboards already:

1/3 cup hot water

1 tsp chicken bullion

1 egg

1/2 cup canned pumpkin

1/2 cup creamy peanut butter

--------------------------------------------

1 cup quick oatmeal

1 cup cornmeal

1-1/2 cups flour

1 tsp baking soda

-------------------------------------------

You will also need:

Mixing bowls, cookie sheet, measuring utensils, large spoons, rolling pin, cookie cutter and a mixer.

Step 2: Making the Biscuits

Dissolve chicken bullion in 1/3 cup hot water. With electric mixer, add 1/2 cup peanut butter and 1/2 cup canned pumpkin. Add the egg to this and blend well.

In a separate bowl, mix together flour, oatmeal, cornmeal and baking soda. Stir until combined.

Add the dry ingredients to the peanut butter/pumpkin mixture and mix until well blended.

Roll dough onto a floured surface and with a rolling pin, flatten to approximately 1/4" thick.

Step 3: Baking

Cut out with a bone shaped cookie cutter. Place biscuits on a lightly greased cookie sheet and bake at 350 degrees for 14 minutes.

Remove from oven and cool on cookie racks. Store in a cool dry place.

Since there are no preservatives in the biscuits, they will only be good for 3 or 4 days but they can be kept in the freezer.

Makes 28 dog biscuits. Total cost, about $1.50, which is about 5 cents per biscuit!

Step 4: Give Them to Your Dog

You can teach your dog to sit by rewarding her with these tasty treats.

My dog is allergic to oats and flour is there any alternative?

I suppose you could use a combination of cornmeal and almond flour or even barley flour. Just make sure you have 3-1/2 cups total.
