These might be the best dog biscuits your dog will ever snack on. This fall I coached a girls running/character program called Girls on the Run and part of the program dictates that the group design and execute a community service program. The overwhelming majority of my group voted to do a project to benefit our local SPCA. We decided to collect items the shelter needs for the dogs, pulling from a list on their website, and we also made dog biscuits from a recipe posted on the SPCA site.
The recipe couldn’t be easier and the girls had a blast. I gave some samples to my dogs, and they devoured them. This would be a cute holiday gift for your dog-owning family and friends.
1 cup whole wheat flour
3/4 cup nonfat powdered milk
1/2 cup rolled oats
1/4 cup cornmeal
1/3 cup creamy peanut butter
1/2 cup hot water
Combine all ingredients in a bowl. You may have to use your hands as it will be very dry. Pat it onto a cookie sheet to about 1/2 inch thick. Cut into shapes of your choice. You can let dry or bake in a 350 degree F oven until firm, about 10-15 minutes.
