I love my dog more than anything so I thought it was about time I made a homemade dog biscuit recipe that was both nutritious and delicious.
Knowing our family’s beloved Wheaten Terrier, this is actually quite a feat. Never before have I met a dog that so suspicious of any food offered to them. He’ll take 10 minutes to carefully sniff and analyze a piece of chicken before he decides to eat it. It’s almost unbelievable, but he does seem to like this recipe.
- 2 1/2 cups whole wheat flour
- 1/2 cup oats
- 1 apple, grated with peel on
- 1 cup carrots, grated
- 1/3 cup creamy peanut butter
- 1/3 cup vegetable oil
- 2 eggs, whisked
- 1/2 cup water
Preheat oven to 350 degrees. In a large mixing bowl, combine flour, oats, grated apple and carrot, peanut butter, vegetable oil, eggs, and water. Mix until combined (I found it was easiest to use my hands). If mix is crumby, add additional water, a tablespoon at a time.
Turn dough out on to counter and roll out until it’s 1/4 inch thick. Use dog-themed cookie cutters to portion into biscuits. Transfer to parchment or silicone mat lined baking sheet. Using the flat/dull end of a wooden skewer, poke air holes into the biscuits. Depending on the size/shape of the cookie cutter they may need 2 to 4 holes.
Bake in preheated oven for about 35-45 minutes until lightly browned, crisp, and cooked through. Cool on baking sheet for 1 hour. Store in air tight contained for up to two weeks and have your four-legged friend enjoy!
