Could you say no to this face? ----------------------->
Anyhoo, I had seen lots of tutorials for dog biscuits on Pinterest, however I don't have a fancy cookie cutter in the shape of a dog bone. Plus I usually end up breaking regular Milk Bones into halfsies anyway because my lab is quite on the hefty side. So I decided to make this easy as can be and just make little hush puppy type treats.
Here are the ingredients I used, in no particular order:
|Oats (of any kind unless your pup has an allergy)|
Flour (again, any kind will do)
|I ended up just throwing ingredients in to the bowl until I got|
a consistency I thought would work in order to roll the treats
into balls. Here I put in flour, PB, oats, and 1 egg.
This was obviously too sticky, so I decided on more flour.
|Oops. The flour kind of exploded. The beauty with this non-|
recipe is that you can keep adding things until it comes out
right. So I then added another egg...
|Much better! Semi-sticky but not runny or goopy.|
|Here they are all rolled out. You can make|
them big or small, I chose bite-size for my
lab and my Boston Terrier kind of has to
chew it for a second or two. His name is Jim
and he is special ;)
PS I used my old cookie sheets, I do have better ones so
no judging! :)
|Mom, please hurry. It smells awesome in here.|
|Waiting with baited breath to lick the bowl.|
I admit I did try them before I cooked them. They tasted like
oat-y peanut butter globs, just what dogs like! I don't know
about you, but my dogs sometimes eat cat poop. Anything
would be an improvement.
|Jimmy licking the spoon. Right after this he yanked it away |
from me and took it under the dining room table. There goes my
|What they looked like after 15 minutes in|
a 350 degree oven.
|They got slightly browned on the bottom and top so I knew|
they were done. They weren't too hard or too soft.
|Little hush puppies!|
|I don't have measurements but the amount I made just fit into|
our dog treat canister. If you don't have an air tight container
I would refrigerate them, or freeze half the batch to keep them
|My boys were very happy!|
