Quick and easy dog treat biscuits

Dog treat biscuits. The Hungry Mum

My mini schnauzer Popcorn is a sucker for treats. She should really be on the Schmackos ad – she recognises the sights, smell and even sound of a pack of these dog treats through closed doors, out of the house and into the garage where they are kept.

She knows she will score a doggy treat whenever we leave the house and so she trots outside – not easy when you are a senior citizen hound with arthritis – and patiently sits and waits.

I made these easy doggy biscuits for her ages ago and forgot to blog them. They were so popular with her that when Miss 10’s Brownie Guide troop had a baking stall I made a few batches – and they were the first thing to sell out! We bagged them and charged a few dollars and people went crazy for them.

These peanut butter dog treats are quick and simple to make and if you use a bone-shaped cutter they look super cute. I tweaked a recipe from allrecipes.com.au

I must say, Miss8 also loved these bickies…

Here’s to furry friends all over the world 😉

GATHER:

2 cups wholemeal flour

270g unsalted natural peanut butter

1 cup low fat milk

Dog treat biscuits

LET’S GET TO IT:

Preheat oven to 180C and line 2 baking trays with non-stick baking paper.

In a large bowl stir together the peanut butter and milk, then stir in flour until it comes together.

Spread a light dusting of flour over the bench, tip out dough and knead until smooth. Cover with a piece of baking paper and use a rolling pin to roll out to 2cm thick.

Dip the cookie cutters into flour, cut out shape, then place on trays, allowing room to spread.

Bake for 15-18 minutes, depending on the size of your cutters. Sit on trays for 5 minutes before removing to cooling racks.

      These are the quickest bickies you will ever make! And as they contain human food they are edible – Miss8 loves them.

    I make a similar treat for Max and, like a child when there are Christmas cookies being baked, he sits by the oven and waits. I feel so much better when I make his treats. There really is no way of knowing just what goes into store-bought.
