I think it’s a pretty well known fact around these parts that we adore our dogs in this house. They’re our children and don’t you tell me dogs are nothing like children because they are. They ask for cuddles when sick or scared. They love their toys. They depend on you to provide them with food, shelter and comfort. At some point you’ll pick up their bodily fluids. Sometimes 2 or 3 times in one day… But let’s not harp on that. Did I mention the cuddles?! Oh, doggy cuddles cure cancer, you guys.
But this weekend, oh this weekend I reached a whole new level of crazy dog lady! (And yes, that’s a thing, like crazy cat lady but cooler). I mean, it’s one thing to have my Instagram be 90% filled with adorable pictures of my dogs and another to bake them treats. But that’s exactly what I did this weekend, I made Pudge and Panda homemade dog treats.
And they were a total hit.
The best part is that they’re super easy, all you need is 5 ingredients – flour, chicken broth, peanut butter, oats, and honey. You just combine them all together, form a nice dough, roll it out, cut it up using some Dog Bone Cookie Cutterand bake for 20-30 minutes at 350 degrees. And bam! You have awesome homemade dog treats and your dogs will love you forever… until the treats run out and you refuse to bake more because that means dirtying the Kitchen Aid… BUT for a solid weekend they’ll follow you around and give you the cutest “You know you love me” faces hoping they’ll get more treats.
But seriously. I know I’ll be baking them some more, they treats are so easy and Pudge and Panda just love them… and you know I can’t say no to those faces!
Homemade Dog Biscuits
- 1 cup flour
- 1/4 cup oaths
- 1/4 cup chicken broth
- 1/4 cup peanut butter
- 1 tablespoon honey
- Preheat oven to 350 degrees. Line cookie sheet with parchment paper and set aside.
- In a bowl, combine all ingredients and knead into a ball of dough. You might need to add a little extra water or broth if the dough is too dry.
- Roll the dough out on a floured surface to 1/4in thick. Using cookie cutters, cut out desired shapes and place on prepared cookie sheet.
- Bake for 20-30, until golden brown. (Adjust time depending on the side of your treats, ours were about 2ins and they were perfect at 25 minutes but yours might be done sooner if the treats are smaller).
