Homemade Peppermint Dog Biscuit Recipe

Last week we got a new puppy. Well, she's not a puppy, she's actually older than our 7 year old golden retriever. She's a rescue dog that's lived her life in a crate breeding puppies for a puppy mill. It's a sad sad story, and I'm shocked that anyone would treat this sweet thing the way she's been treated because man, she's got a lot of love to give! All that said, while it's been an easy adjustment with our other dog, I've been trying to be intentional about sharing the love even when one of the fur babies is getting more attention. Our Sophie is highly motivated by treats so I thought I should treat her to something fun and maybe on the sly, freshen her breath a bit too! You may not have a dog adjusting to a major life event, but all our fur babes need some homemade love from time to time don't you think? Why not try this recipe for these homemade peppermint dog biscuits.

Preheat your oven to 350 degrees.

In a mixing bowl, combine the 2 cups of oat flour with the 1 tablespoon of baking powder.

In a separate mixing bowl, stir together the 1 cup of milk and the 1 cup of peanut butter until they are combined well. 

Add the wet ingredients to the mixing bowl with the dry ingredients, and stir until combined. 

Place some wax paper down on a countertop, and lightly flour the work surface. Roll out the dough until it is about a ¼ of an inch thick. 

Using a cookie cutter of your choice, cut out individual cookies. You can find cute cookie cutters here and here

Place the cookies on a baking sheet lined with parchment paper, and bake for 18-20 minutes. 

The cookies will be browned around the edges and pretty firm to the touch, but not hard. This forms a dry biscuit type dog cookie, so do not be alarmed if your treats look dry. 

Let cool, and then serve to your pup.

Try them and let me know what your dog thinks!
