When we had two dogs I made dog treats more often.

Purtie and Gracie, both greatly missed.

Now that we only have one dog (my daughter’s Boston Terrier) I don’t make treats as often.

However this week we were out of dog treats and Riley expects one when she comes in from doing her business. I really didn’t feel like making a special trip to the store so I made a batch of Peanut Butter Biscuits for her. We had one happy dog!

Peanut Butter Biscuits

3 cups whole wheat flour
1 cup cornmeal
1 cup of oats, uncooked
1 cup of hot water
¼ cup of olive oil
2 eggs, lightly beaten
3-4 Tbsp peanut butter

In one bowl combine peanut butter, hot water, oil and eggs. Mix until smooth. In another bowl combine the dry ingredients. Pour the wet ingredients into the dry ingredients and mix until dough forms. I used my stand mixer, which worked well for this.

Knead the dough on a floured surface and roll out to an inch thickness. Cut your shapes out. I used a bone shaped cookie cutter.Making dog treats Place the shapes on a lightly greased or non-stick cookie sheet.

Ready for the oven!
