Cooking Simple: Homemade Dog Biscuits

Ingredients (makes 2-3 Dozen depending on size)

Mix these first 5 ingredients very well:

  • 1 ½  C. cold water
  • ½ C. veg. oil
  • 2 eggs
  • 2 T pure vanilla extract 
  • 5 T  heaping peanut butter

Next, mix these together:

  • 3 ¼  C. all purpose flour
  • 1 ¾  C. rolled oats
  • 1 ¾  C. cornmeal or potato flakes
    (I do potato flakes since many dogs have allergies to corn)

Directions:

  1. Preheat oven to 400 degrees
  2. Combine the wet and dry ingredients
  3. Mix / knead until blended
  4. Roll out dough until approximately 1/4 inch thick (thicker dough takes longer to bake)
  5. Use cookie cutters to create the desired biscuit shape/size for your dog
  6. Place biscuits on a greased baking sheet
  7. Bake for 20 minutes (10 minutes – switch racks 10 minutes more)
  8. Remove from oven
  9. Let cool overnight or at least a few hours
  10. Store in an air-tight container for up to 1 month (if refrigerated)
