Peanut butter & Carob Dog Biscuits
I've actually been a pretty busy lady. We recently rescued a 12 month old Great Dane, Dodge - He's just so lovely!
So, for my first post since welcoming him into our little fur family, I decided I'd better blog about some dog treats! He loves carob... and he absolutely loves peanut butter.... he loves treats...so it makes sense that he would love Peanut butter & Carob Dog Biscuits!
Recipe makes about 14 biscuits, depending on the size of your cookie cutter and how thick you make them.
You will need:
1 cup peanut butter
1 cup soy milk
2 tablespoons agave syrup
1 heaped cup of plain flour
1 tablespoon baking powder
1 scant teaspoon ground cinnamon
1/2 cup of dog chocolate treat buttons, roughly chopped
1. Preheat oven to 180ºC. Cream together the peanut butter, milk and agave syrup, gently fold in carob chunks
2. Add the mixture to the remaining dry ingredients and stir until you form a stiff dough (you may have to use your hands). If you find the dough is a bit too wet you can add flour until the dough is to a cookie consistency.
3. Roll out the dough on a clean, floured work surface to about 1cm thickness. Cut out biscuits with your cookie cutter and place on a lined baking sheet. These biscuits don’t spread/melt much at all so it's fine to place them close together. Bake for 15 - 30 minutes (depending on the size of your biscuit) or until golden brown. Transfer to a wire rack to cool.
