How to Make Peanut Butter and Oatmeal Dog Biscuit
- Preheat oven to 350°. Mix together dry ingredients.
Mix in the peanut butter and hot water. You may need to add more flour if the dough is too sticky.
- Knead dough well.
Roll the dough into 1/4" thickness and cut into shapes with dog cookie cutters.
- OPTIONAL: Egg wash (one egg whisked with a fork and then brushed on with a pastry brush) on the treats before I baked them. It gives them a nice sheen once they're baked. Here's how they look before baking.
- Bake on a lightly greased cookie sheet for 40 minutes. Turn off the oven and let them cool overnight.
- If you and your dog can't wait that long, cool them completely on a wire rack before serving.
Instead of cutting out more shapes with the left over peanut butter and oatmeal dough, I rolled it into balls. Then I made a cross hatch fork mark on the dog cookies. This is the same way you would do for human peanut butter cookies.
After: The cookies get very hard, just the way dogs like them!
- Storing: This peanut butter dog biscuit recipe makes biscuits that will last in a sealed air tight container at room temperature for one week. You can store them in the refrigerator for 3 weeks and in the freezer for up to 6 months.
