Welcome to Spring! HURRAY! I hope you all had a wonderful weekend. This week, TATT is going to the dogs. Like all dogs, my pups enjoy a good treat. However, the boxes don't display the fat & calories the way I'd like them to. One of my Cocker Spaniels - Peach Blossom passed away a few years ago after living with Cushing's Disease. I learned from her the value of watching my herd's waistline.
Oatmeal Peanut Butter Dog Biscuits
2 cups whole wheat flour
2 tablespoons wheat germ (sometimes I use flax seed)
1 tablespoon of honey
1 cup rolled oats
1/3 cup organic peanut butter (my pups like chunky)
1 1/4 cups hot water
Combine the dry ingredients together in a large bowl. Add the peanut butter, honey and water. You may need to add more hot water if the dough is really sticky. Knead the dough well. Roll out onto a floured surface and roll out to 1/4 inch thickness. Use cookie cutters (I use pawprints) to cut the dough into shapes. Bake at 350 for 20-30 minutes (depending on size of cookie cutter used). Turn off oven and let the treats dry out overnight. Pack into airtight container.
