Ever since I helped with a program for Girl Scouts where the girls made homemade dog biscuits and catnip toys to donate to a local shelter, I have been in LOVE with the idea of making my own dog biscuits. BUT until recently, I’ve never had a pooch to make them for. So when I came across this recipe I couldn’t resist.

The recipe is super easy and you can make multiple batches by just multiplying the recipe. For mine, I tripled the recipe since I was making doggy bags (pun intended) for my friends’ pups.

You can find the recipe here. And of course, the Pinterest Pin here

What you need:

1 c. flour

1/4 c. oats

1/4 c. unsweetened shredded coconut (I couldn’t find this at my local grocery store…so I left it out)

1/2 T baking powder

1/2 c. creamy organic peanut butter (I figured that regular non-organic peanut butter was good enough for me, it’d been good enough for the dogs.)

1/2 c. milk (Since I didn’t know the dietary restrictions of all the pups I was baking for (including my own), I used non-dairy Almond Milk instead of regular milk. )

1T olive oil

1T applesauce

What you do:

Preheat oven to 350.

Combine all dry ingredients in a medium bowl

Add wet ingredients, mix well.

Knead into ball.

Roll out dough to 1/2″ on wax paper.

Cut out shapes with cookie cutters.

Place on unlined cookie sheet and bake 20 minutes.

They turned out really well and Camden LOVES them.

Hopefully the other furballs will love them just as much!
