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.

    You're welcome! I think it's the chicken broth that does the trick!

    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.
