  3. Kip's Peanut Butter Dog Biscuits Recipe

I do not make a lot of my dog Kip’s food. When it comes to his daily kibble, I’m always looking for the best quality foods. But I’m often worried that what I would make at home would not be as nutritious for him as what I find available in stores.

Treats are a different story. So many of the treats we find for pets have too many ingredients and can contain allergins.

These treats are made from a simple list of ingredients, which makes me feel wonderful feeding to Kip. I love that all of the ingredients are the same quality I would use in any baked good for humans. Plus, each ingredient is just as good raw as when baked.

The ingredients in these peanut butter treats

  • Old-fashioned rolled oats are naturally gluten free. I use the old fashioned variety as they have the least amount of processing along with good texture and chew. If possible, choose organic so no pesticides were used in the growing.
  • Peanut butter is a treat for most animals. Kip loves peanut butter and it’s a good source of protein. But it also has some needed sweetness as no other sugar is added to the treats.
  • Ground flax seed is a terrific source of protein and fiber. The flavor is not noticeable in the treats and the nutrients it provides makes it a great add-in.
  • Banana acts not only as sweetness and flavor but also as a binder. There are no eggs in the recipe and the banana takes the place of what an egg usually does.
  • Oat flour is used to roll out the treats. I do not buy oat flour, but instead grind up some oats. This creates a flour and helps the treats not stick when they’re rolled out.

These treats go together extremely quickly and bake in just a few minutes. I store them in an airtight container on the counter and use them within the week, much to Kip’s enjoyment. If they’re not going to be used within the week, I would recommend storing them in the freezer to keep them fresh!

Kip is always excited about these and honestly, if you give them a taste, you may be surprised yourself!

Instructions
 

  • Preheat oven to 350°F.

  • Sprinkle the countertop with oat flour and roll the dough out evenly to approximately ¼ thick. Use a cookie or biscuit cutter to cut out the treats. Set them on a parchment-lined baking sheet.

    Hello, Kaleb❤️
    I made these for our Black Lab, Jeta. She could not stay out of the kitchen as I was putting the ingredients together and was right back in the kitchen as they came out of the oven! This is a wonderful, healthy recipe. Thank you!❤️

  2. Made these treats for my doggies and they LOVED them. Super easy and a healthy alternative to store bought. Thanks Kaleb.
