Now for the dog treats.  PLEASE people, don’t just grab a box of Milk Bones.  They are full of chemicals and not good for your dog.  You can make your own ‘milk bones’ and your dogs will love them and they will be HEALTHY.



Peanut Butter Bones

 

Ingredients:

  • 1 cup organic peanut butter
  • 1 cup skim milk
  • 1 tablespoon baking powder
  • 2 cups whole-wheat flour, plus more for cutting out the cookies

 

 

Directions:

1.   Preheat the oven to 375 degrees F.

2.  In a medium-size mixing bowl, combine the peanut butter and milk. Drizzling the milk in slowly will allow you to combine it more efficiently.

3.  In another large mixing bowl, combine the baking powder and whole-wheat flour.

4.  Slowly add the dry ingredients to the peanut butter-milk mixture. Combine all of the ingredients until thoroughly mixed.

5.  On a sheet of parchment paper, sprinkle a tiny bit of wheat flour on the surface and roll out the dough to reach your desired dog treat thickness. Using your dog bone cookie cutters, cut out dog treats and place them onto a greased cookie sheet.

6.  Bake for 15 to 20 minutes.

 

And please, again, there is a reason to use good organic peanut butter – it isn’t full of sugar and hydrogenated oils that are in regular peanut butter.  Better for you, better for your dog.

 

Pumpkin Dog Biscuits

 Ingredients  

  • 2 eggs          
  • 1/2 cup canned pumpkin 
  • 1/2 teaspoon Himalayan sea salt  (don’t use regular salt - pink salt has 84 minerals in it and is good for you and your dog)
  • 2 tablespoons dry milk 
  • 2 1/2 cups flour   
  • water 

 

Directions

1.   Preheat oven to 350 degrees F.

2.  Blend eggs and pumpkin together; add salt, dry milk, and flour.

3.  Add water as needed to make the dough somewhat workable.

4.  The dough should be dry and stiff, don't be concerned with crumbs being left in the bowl.

5.  You will need to mix this with your hands because it is too stiff for an electric mixer.

6.  Roll to 1/2-inch thick.

7.  Cut into shapes.

8.  Place 1" apart on ungreased cookie sheet.

9.  Bake for 20 minutes on one side, then turn over and bake another 20 minutes.

 

These will make great party favors if you use small cookie cutters.

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 Ingredients:

2 cups whole wheat flour

2 teaspoons baking powder

½ cup Plain Unsweetened Greek Yogurt

½ cup finely shredded carrot

1/2 cup shredded cheddar cheese

1 cup (Old Fashioned) oatmeal

1 egg, lightly beaten

1/3 cup chicken broth

 

Directions:

Preheat oven to 325 degrees F.

Line 2 baking sheets with parchment paper or spray with non-stick spray.

In medium bowl, whisk together flour and baking powder.

In mixer bowl add yogurt, carrot, cheddar and oatmeal and half of flour mixture.

Mix on low speed and gradually add the remaining flour mixture.

Drizzle in the egg and broth.

Mix on medium speed until well combined.

Scoop 1 teaspoon portions, roll to form a ball and place onto prepared baking sheet.

Use a fork to flatten slightly (they will puff a little during baking.)

(Also, they do not spread much during baking, so you can place them close together on pan.)

Bake for about 12 minutes or until lightly browned on the outside but still soft on the inside.

Remove and allow to cool.

Keep in airtight container for up to 5 days or freeze


Now just have fun with your dogs!!!
