I know, I know. Only a crazy person without kids would make their dog’s treats from scratch. Actually, I take that back. I will probably keep making dog treats from scratch after I have kids. That way, if I find them munching on a handful of them, I won’t have to worry that they are full of poison that the Chinese purposely put there. Original recipe here.
4 ounces water (or broth)
4 ounces vegetable oil
1 1/2 ounces peanut butter
11 ounces flour
2 1/4 ounces cornmeal
2 1/4 ounces oats
Beat the water, oil, eggs and peanut butter.
Stir together dry ingredients and add to the wet ones. Mix until combined.
Roll dough out to 1/4 inch and use whatever cookie cutter you want. I actually use a bottle cap to cut them out since Daphne is so small. She doesn’t need treats any bigger than quarter size. If you have a big dog, you can make them bigger.
Put them in a 400 degree oven for 20 minutes, then turn off the oven and leave them in there till they get hard.
Once they are hard, let them cool on the cookie sheet and store in an airtight container.
