DIY Doggy Treats
If it were up to me, I would actually call these ‘baby snacks’. Because, I don’t actually consider my dog, a dog. He’s my son! He’s my little baby. I know that all you other dog lovers out there, can relate. I always find myself wondering what he’s doing when I’m not home. And I feel bad when Phillip & I go out to eat without him. Is that weird? I feel like we should be loading up his doggy cage & bringing him along for the ride! He just means so much to me, and I wanted him to know that. So, I made him doggy treats! I wanted to make him a treat that was good for him, and that he loves. Now, by ‘good for him’, I don’t mean healthy. I just mean that I know every single ingredient going into these treats, so in return, I know every thing that my baby is digesting. I just feel like I can’t trust many foods & products these days, because every time I do, someones like “DO YOU KNOW WHAT THAT’S MADE OUT OF!?” and I’m like no.. what?! And then they say something totally crazy, like “Lobster cuticals!!!’. Like, what in the world!? Sometimes I just want to ask the companies, like please tell me what exactly that pigs toe did for you. I know that just good ol’ normal ingredients can do the trick. And not to mention, any company who partakes in animal cruelty, is not a company that I’m interested in using.
Puppy Love all the way!
1/2 cups water
1/2 cup oil
4 tablespoons peanut butter
2 tsp. vanilla
2 cups flour
1/2 cup cornmeal
Mix water, oil, eggs, and vanilla together in a bowl. Then, in a separate bowl, mix flour, cornmeal, and oats together and then pour into the oil mixture. Next, add the peanut butter and mix all ingredients until you have a ball of dough. Pat flower onto a flat surface & roll out your dough.
The only cookie cutters that I have are snowmen & candy canes, so I just used the lid of a water bottle! This was perfect, because it made bite size treats (Since Conrad’s so little), and it was free!
Put onto a non-stick lightly greased cookie tray. Cook for 18 minutes at 400 F. Turn off oven and allow the biscuits to cool in oven until crisp and hard.
I up-cycled Conrad’s old Milk-Bones treat container!
This recipe has officially been puppy-approved!
