Looks like a lot of fun...but just a quick reminder where two different medical conditions would make these contra-indicated. First one: allergies...so many of our canine friends suffer from food allergies that manifest as ear and skin infections (can also have respiratory or GI symptoms). Wheat is a common allergen. So if you have a dog with undiagnosed skin and ear problems, probably better pass on these. Second: obesity. The nutrient breakdown did not include the peanut butter, but I can assure you these are very high in both fat and calories, so if "Max" is a little portly, better try a light version or skip all together. OK...climbing down off my soap box...for a large number of dogs this recipe will be just fine and perhaps even better than the pre-made treats with unknown fillers and low quality ingredients, but as always, there is no one-size fits all...so be sure that your pet qualifies for this special little treat..then go ahead and use in moderation!
Thank you, Chef Mommie! My dog loves these. I was a bit worried because I only had 1/2 cup of peanut butter, but they turned out just fine and were so easy to make. Rather than using our bone-shaped cookie cutter, I used the top of a spice container. The cookies look just like vanilla wafers. This will become a regular treat for our pup.
Baking powder is apparently bad (toxic) for dogs. I would omit the baking powder if you are making these
Made these today for our Husky as he just had some minor surgery yesterday...he loved them! I also tried them on our 15 year old finniky poodle and he gobbled them up. Needless to say, I won't waste my money on store bought anymore; these were super easy to make and a super hit with Tonka and Pismo...thanks for sharing!
Made these for my 7 mo. puppy today and she loves them. The recipe was nice and easy to make....and used ingredients I had on hand. It's a keeper!
My dog was trying to get to the dough even before it was baked. This a very easy recipe to mix up and roll out.
My dog is a VERY picky treat eater. He normally won't eat anything crunchy in treat form. These, as long as they were broken up into small pieces, he ate with gusto. My son really liked the dough, and I have to say, the biscuits really are pretty good! LOL! Thanks for something simple, easy and nutritious for my dog!
I don't have a dog, but I made a batch of these for some friends who do have dogs, and they got RAVE reviews! They both said their dogs were whining and prancing trying to get to them. :) I'm making a batch tonight as a halloween present for my mom's Pug. Great recipe--thank you!
You are wise to get out of the way of our Labrador's tail when he sees one of these approaching--he has a big strong tail and there suddenly is a LOT of wagging going on! :) I used graham flour (coarser grind than regular whole-wheat), and it gave them a nice texture (yes, I took a bite--they're not half bad-LOL). These were fun to make, and our dog loves them. And he loves you for posting the recipe! :)
made a double batch of these this morning so quick. Found bone-shaped coolie cutter for 79 cents. Pup was sleeping but the smell of them baking brought him to the kitchen were he drooled till they were cooled. I rvrn tried one. Like a peanut butter biscotti LOL
