BASIC DOG BISCUITS
Mess factor: one bowl, one spoon, one pan
In order of appearance
1 over ripe banana
1/4 cup unsweetened applesauce
1/4 cup natural peanut butter
1/4 cup oats (any kind)
1½ cups whole wheat flour
Preheat oven to 325*
Grease a baking sheet, baking mold, or line sheet with parchment paper/silpat.
Combine banana, egg, applesauce and peanut butter in a large bowl
and mash together.
Add flour and oats and stir to combine.
Dough will be very STICKY!
Roll and cut with cookie cutters, roll pieces into a ball and press flat with a fork, or use a silicone baking mold for individual pieces.
Flour a clean surface and use lots of flour if you are doing the cookie cutter method
If using a silicone baking mold, use cooking spray on mold and spoon or spatula
If baking round pieces, use parchment paper/silpat mat, and spray fork with cooking spray
READY SET BAKE
325* for 30 minutes, or until golden brown, in a silicone baking mold, on a greased cookie sheet, on parchment paper, or silpat mat
Remove from oven and cool on rack.
Keep sealed in an airtight container.
These won’t keep as long as store bought biscuits as there are no preservatives.
I generally put them in the fridge and take them out as needed. I have found they can keep up to a few weeks if kept in an air tight container in the fridge. Honey will eat them at any temperature 🙂
Shelf life of baked treats: 1 week on counter, 3 weeks in fridge, 6 months in freezer
Who says dog biscuits have to be bone or paw shaped?
