Peanut Butter Dog Biscuits

dogbiscuits_106b

We have a Jack Russell-Pug-Sheltie-Border Collie cross named Pippi. (As we discovered upon moving to Quebec, this name does not translate and basically means to pee. This has led to many awkward conversations at the dog park). What fun is it to have a pet if you don’t spoil them silly? In that vein, we thought maybe we should make our own Peanut Butter Dog Biscuits!

“Did you say you were going to make me Peanut Butter Dog Biscuits?”

Yes Pippi, yes we are!  For everyone who wants to try this themselves, here’s what you’ll need:

  • 1/2 cup skim milk
  • 1/2 cup natural, unsweetened peanut butter
  • 1 cup flour (whole wheat or white flour works)
  • 1/2 tsp baking powder

Pour the milk into a mixing bowl or food processor

Add the peanut butter. Natural peanut butter is much more liquid and easy to pour.
