If you’ve always fancied making some homemade biscuits for your dog, this recipe is for you.
It’s super quick, terribly easy and uses a few basic ingredients you’ve probably already got in the kitchen cupboard.
What’s more, you can sample the treats yourself as they are suitable for humans too.
Brought to us by Instagram baker @CakeOntheRun, the main ingredient is oats, which are 100% safe for dogs and can be given to them in moderation.
The recipe will work with any shaped cookie cutter, but if you don’t have one don’t worry. You can use the rim of a glass or the lid of a bottle to make your own shapes.
Make sure you use plain porridge oats (no flavourings like golden syrup) and choose a peanut butter that contains no sugar.
It’s always best to give your pooch a small taster to begin with, after all, our pets can be just as funny about their food as we can.
Once cooked, store the little delights in an airtight container. For lots more food inspiration, visit our recipe page.
Peanut butter biscuit recipe
- 150g oats (blended to a flour)
- 50g peanut butter (no added sugar)
- 50ml water
- 1 egg
- Pre-heat your oven to 200C/ 400F/ gas mark 6.
- Blitz the oats in a blender so it becomes flour then pour it into a large bowl.
- Add the peanut butter, egg and water and mix with a spoon so the mixture clumps together.
- Use your hands to squeeze the mixture into a dough.
- Sprinkle some extra oat flour or any flour onto your kitchen work surface and roll out the dough using a rolling pin.
- Once it’s 0.5cm thick, use a cookie cutter or the rim of a prosecco flute to cut out biscuit shapes. Use up all of the dough by picking up any leftover bits and rolling it out again.
- Place the biscuits onto a large oven-proof tray lined with baking paper/ parchment and cook for 15 minutes.
- They should be slightly golden and have a bit of a crunch to them.
