Gimme info’s Homemade Dog Biscuits
- 3 cups whole wheat organic flour
- 2 large eggs
- ½ cup canned pumpkin puree; NOT the sweetened pie filling
- 2 tablespoons all natural peanut butter; NO salt or sugar added
- Water, as needed – for consistency
- A few sprinkles of parsley for fresh breath (NOT spring parsley, which is harmful)
Preheat oven to 350 degrees. Whisk all of the ingredients together, adding small increments of water if needed to dough to make it pliable, yet firm. Roll the dough to 1/4-inch thickness. Use a dog bone shaped cookie cutter to cut out pieces. Bake until edges of biscuits are lightly golden, about 25 to 30 mins.
Good to know:
- Whole wheat flour is recommended in our recipe because of its superior nutritional content. Like humans, some dogs have a sensitivity to wheat. If so, use regular or oat flour instead.
- Our recipe contains no added salt or sugar. Tip: Never share salty foods with pets (such as potato chips). Salty foods are dangerous for dogs’ health and can cause a host of symptoms from excessive thirst to death. Too much sugar in a dog’s diet is also harmful and may cause behavioral problems and could lead to diabetes.
- Limit your dog’s intake of peanut butter. Some studies suggest that peanut butter may contain fats and toxins that are not especially healthy for pets, so keep the quantity of consumption low. NEVER buy peanut butter containing sugar or salt for your pet. Make sure your peanut butter does NOT contain xylitol, which is sometimes used as an artificial sweetener in foods.
- Canned pumpkin puree is very healthy for dogs. It is loaded with fiber and beta-carotene, which the body converts to vitamin A. However, too much A can be harmful to dogs. Limit canned pumpkin puree to a tablespoon or two per day.
- Be sure to have fresh water available for your pet when feeding them.
Remember, while these treats are tasty, it is important to limit your dog’s intake so that they are not too full to consume their regular meals. Treats should never be used as a substitute for their meals.
