Peanut Butter Dog Biscuits with Molasses
Ingredients are typically called natural if they are processed to the least amount. Unlike refined sugar, blackstrap molasses retains such vitamins and minerals as calcium, magnesium, potassium and iron.
Tip: You can use chunky or smooth peanut butter for this recipe. However, either one you choose should be salt and sugar free.
1 1/2 cups whole wheat flour
1/4 cup rolled oats
1 tsp baking powder
3/4 cup milk (reduced fat or fat free is preferred)
1 cup peanut butter (see tip above)
1 tbsp blackstrap molasses
1. Preheat oven to 350 degrees F
2. Whisk the flour, oats and baking powder together in a medium bowl
3. Gradually stir in the milk, peanut butter and molasses
4. Turn out onto a floured surface
5. Knead until a soft dough forms
6. Roll out to 1/4″ thickness and cut with a dog bone cookie cutter
7. Bake for 20 minutes
8. Let cool overnight in the oven or cool completely on a wire rack
These peanut butter dog biscuits bake nice and hard and they can last for 2 weeks in a dog treat jar. If you prefer to bake a softer dog biscuit, be sure to refrigerate them for up to 3 weeks. The hard biscuits will be fresh in the refrigerator for 4-5 weeks, and both soft and hard dog treats will be good for up to 6 months in the freezer.
