Healthy Homemade Peanut Butter Dog Treat

Whole Grain Peanut Butter Treats

Healthy Homemade Peanut Butter Dog Treat

These homemade dog treats are going to be your pup’s new obsession. They’re super easy to throw together and full of healthy ingredients!

Ingredients

  • 2 cups unbleached white whole wheat or whole wheat flour (King Arthur Flour is preferred)
  • 1 cup rolled oats
  • 1/3 cup blend of whole grains and seeds that can include oat berries, millet, rye flakes and wheat flakes; plus flax, poppy, sesame and sunflower seeds. (Available from King Arthur as Harvest Grain Blend, or make it yourself.)
  • 2 tablespoons chopped fresh parsley
  • 1 tablespoon honey (optional)
  • 1/2 cup nonfat dry milk (or garbanzo or potato flour)
  • ¼ teaspoon salt
  • 2 large eggs, beaten slightly
  • 1 cup peanut butter, crunchy or plain
  • 1/2 cup + 1 tablespoon cold water, enough to make a cohesive dough

Instructions

Preheat the oven to 300°F. Lightly grease a couple of baking sheets or one large one, or line them with parchment.

Mix the flour, oats, whole grains, parsley, dried milk and salt.

Add the eggs, peanut butter and honey and stir into dry ingredients to combine; the mixture will be crumbly.

Add enough water to bring the dough together. Mix with a spoon, or if using a stand mixer, use a dough hook.

Drop (or form by hand) the dough into walnut sized balls onto the prepared baking sheets. Flatten them to about 1/4″.

Bake for about 45 minutes. When finished, the cookies will be dark golden brown and will be dry and crisp all the way through.

Cool right on the pans.

Yield: 60 small (round) cookies.
