Homemade Dog Treats

Pin It This craft is from Come On, Ilene! Check out her colorful blog for other tutorials and recipes!  :)



Ingredients
  • 1 cup rolled oats
  • 1/3 cup margarine or butter
  • 1 cup boiling beef broth
  • 3/4 cup cornmeal
  • 2 teaspoons white sugar
  • 2 teaspoons beef bouillon granules
  • 1/2 cup milk
  • 1/2 cup peanut butter
  • 1 egg, beaten (or 2 eggs to make treats softer for older dogs)
  • 3 cups whole wheat flour
Directions
Combine rolled oats, margarine/butter, and boiling beef broth in a large bowl. Let stand and soften for 10 minutes.  Thoroughly stir in cornmeal, sugar, bouillon, milk, peanut butter, and egg. Mix in flour, 1 cup at a time, until dough comes together.  Knead dough together so that it looks like this:
Roll out dough to 1/2″ thickness:

Cut out shapes with cookie cutter. I had a hard time finding a bone shape cutter and almost made my own cookie cutterbut then I randomly saw this 4″bone cutter at AC Moore:
I cut some smaller shapes using mini cutters for smaller dogs:
Place on cookie sheet. They don’t spread apart so you can fit a lot on a sheet:
Bake 35 to 45 minutes at 325 degrees, until golden brown. Remove from oven and let cool:
All packaged up and ready to mail to my doggy friends all over!
