Healthy, organic dog treats are easy and inexpensive to make at home. Most recipes call for ingredients that anyone who likes to bake already has on hand, and if your dog has dietary restrictions you can also control exactly what goes into their treats. Homemade dog treats also make excellent party gifts for dog-loving friends. I chose two pretty simple recipes to start: bacon and cheddar biscuits and peanut butter biscuits (recipes follow) and have distributed the results among ten of our office dogs with the hopes of some feedback—woof! Two paws up or down? If these first two recipes are a success with our testers, pumpkin patch biscuits and carrot cheese muffins will be next. Stay tuned!
Bacon and Cheese Biscuits3/4 cup Flour
Combine flour, soda and salt; mix well and set aside. Cream butter and sugar, beat in egg and vanilla. Add flour mix mixing well. Stir in oats, cheese, wheat germ and bacon. Drop by rounded tablespoon onto ungreased baking sheets. Bake at 350 for 16 minutes. Cool and enjoy.
Peanut Butter Biscuits2 cups whole wheat flour
Combine flour wheat germ and salt in large bowl then mix in peanut butter, egg oil and water. Roll dough out onto a lightly floured surface till about 1/2 inch thick, then cut out the biscuits using a cookie cutter — (or make squares). Put the biscuits onto an ungreased baking sheet. Bake at 350 degrees, 15 mins for the smaller sized cookies and up to 35 mins. for larger shaped ones.
