Most of you know that I love to bake just about anything. Cakes, cookies, brownies, biscuits…it really doesn’t matter since it is all good in my book. C & I try not to give our Siberian Husky, Ellie, table food so she won’t beg, but one of her favorite bedtime treats is peanut butter spread on a Kong toy. She loves it!!
I discovered this baked peanut butter dog treat at Brown Eyed Baker and decided to try it. Ellie loves dog biscuits and peanut butter and I love to bake, so why not combine the three? I call these Peanut Butter Dog Cookies. Ellie is licking her lips in anticipation already.
2 cups whole wheat flour
1 tbsp. baking powder
1 cup organic peanut butter
1 cup low fat milk
Preheat oven to 375 degrees. Combine the flour and baking powder in a large mixing bowl and set aside. Combine the milk and peanut butter, then pour the milk mixture into the flour mixture. Mix well.
Turn out the dough onto a lightly floured surface and knead until thoroughly combined. Roll out to a quarter inch thickness and cut out shapes. I didn’t have a bone cookie cutter, so I just used a round biscuit cutter. I may have to purchase a bone shaped one though because it would be really cute. Bake each batch for 20 minutes or until lightly brown. Cool completely then store at room temperature.
