Want to make some for your furry friends? Here's my recipe.
Pumpkin - Peanut Butter Dog Biscuits
2 1/2 cups of whole wheat flour
1/4 cup peanut butter
1/2 teaspoon ground cinnamon
1 cup canned pumpkin
1/2 teaspoon salt (optional)
1.) Preheat oven to 350 degrees F (175 degree C)
2.) In your mixing bowl, mix together all ingredients and mix until the dough holds together in a ball and all of the flour is combined. The dough shouldn't be too sticky.
3.) Roll the dough on a floured surface 1/2 inch thick. These biscuits do not rise so you don't want to roll too thin. Use your favorite cookie cutter to cut the biscuits into shapes or cut with a butter knife into squares. Place on baking sheet lined with parchment paper. Since the biscuits do not rise you can place them close together on the baking sheet.
4.) Bake in preheated oven until hard - for about 40 minutes. Makes about 25 bones that are approximately 2 inches.
And are they good? Well, my three Newfoundland dogs each gave them a 4 paws up rating. This is the treat they got when they came inside from playing in the snow yesterday and just so you know how hard they played, I have a little video of them to share with you:
Until next time,
