In inspiration of this, here's my haiku for today's post:
Dillan loves his treats
He knows what to do with them
Go straight to his crate.
Usually we buy some store brand dog treat and scoop a big glob of peanut butter on it, at which Dillan runs into his crate awaiting his tasty.
But I started thinking, why buy Dillan his own jar of peanut butter, plus whatever extreme that a box of "Milkbones" costs when I can just make some treats myself.
So i made the long awaited dog biscuits that have been pinned on my "For Dillan" Pinterest Board forever. They were so easy! And I already had all of the ingredients.
Okay, so you will need the following,
- 3/4 cup of milk
- 1 egg
- 1 cup of smooth peanut butter
- 2 1/4 to 2 1/2 cups of whole wheat flour
- 1 tablespoon of baking powder
- 1/8 teaspoon of ground cinnamon
(optional: I added some parsley as a breath freshener)
|Hi, I shop at Kroger.|
First mix the milk, egg, and peanut butter until smooth, then add the rest.
Spread some flour on your counter and roll out your dough 1/4" thick. Then cut whatever size and shape you want. I chose squares...
Place your treats on some lined baking sheets.
Bake for 20 minutes then flip them over and bake for 15.
Let them cool for a while (an hour?) before giving to your puppy.
Look a full canister of treats! Yazah!
Aaaaand, Dillan loves them! Problem, he eats his treat on the carpet, so I have to vacuum up the crumblies. He also kind of drools for them.
Update: these treats lasted about 4 weeks. I just made a fresh batch!
