Eating healthy, minimally processed food isn’t only advised for us humans, but our pets too. Three Dog Bakery has been making quality snack for our furry friends since 1989.
This is one of our dogs favorite recipes from Three Dog Bakery Cookbook created by Three Dog Bakery. My mother-in-law gave me this book for Christmas one year and our pups love the recipes. If you or any of your puppy-crazed friends love their dogs the way we do, you should pick up a copy – Amazon has them for less than $15 (new).
Feeding them a well-balanced diet and keeping them active is the same recipe for success that we should follow too. These simple bones from the Three Dog Bakery Cookbook are a tasty reward for your favorite dogs and come together in minutes. The hardest part will be trying to ignore those cute faces staring at you while they bake.
Trust me, they will be staring, watching you with those adorable begging eyes for just a nibble (even if they aren’t cooked yet).
This is an easy way to use up any whole wheat or all-purpose gluten flour left in the pantry – I know two Dalmatians who haven’t minded one bit in the past. Now that they are also on a gluten-free diet, I’ll even say they preferred the treats made with rice flour (but then again, these two would do just about anything for a snack).
Easy Peanut Butter Dog Bones | Makes about 30 large bone treats (or lots of small and large treats)
Recipe adaptation from Three Dog Bakery Cookbook – Which I HIGHLY recommend you purchase for yourself or all your pup-loving friends!
2 rounded cups brown rice flour (whole wheat flour or all-purpose flour works too, just level them off)
1/2 cup sweet rice flour
1 tablespoon baking powder
1 cup natural crunchy peanut butter
1 1/2 cups skim milk
1) Preheat oven to 375°F.
2) In a large bowl, whisk flour and baking powder. Add peanut butter and milk, mixing until combined (sometimes, I just use my hands).
3) Turn dough onto a lightly floured surface and knead into a disc. Roll out to 1/4-inch thick and cut out treats with your cookie cutters. Place on a cookie sheet and bake for 20 minutes or until lightly golden.
4) Cool on a rack and store in and airtight container for up to a week.
