Homemade Dog Biscuits
(from Lari Robling's cookbook, Endangered Recipes)

These are fun to make with kids, but make sure you also make a people treat that they can enjoy, too. Makes about 2 dozen 4- 5 inch cookie cutter "bones." Or, roll into logs to make bite-size training treats. Dole out in small amounts, even though your pooch will ask for more — at least until you know how their system handles these ingredients.

For this recipe you will need:

  • 1 cup beef broth
  • 1/4 cup peanut butter
  • 2 tablespoons olive oil
  • 1 1/2 cups white flour
  • 1 cup whole wheat flour
  • 1/4 cup wheat germ
  • 1/5 cup cornmeal

1. Preheat oven to 350°.

2. Mix broth, peanut butter, and olive oil together. Add remaining ingredients and mix into a smooth dough.

3. Roll out about one-half inch thick and cut to desired shape with a biscuit cutter. Bake for 20 minutes or until brown. Remove from oven and let cool.

4. For a crunchier texture, microwave 3 to 4 biscuits at a time for about 60 to 90 seconds. Let cool. Store in an airtight container. Woof Woof!
