Whether or not you have a vegetarian dog, these non-meat biscuits will be snapped up — literally! The recipe comes courtesy of King Arthur friend Elaine Aukstikalnis, who works in a veterinary office; Elaine regularly bakes these biscuits (which have been "vetted by the vet") to bring to work for "the patients."

Ingredients

  • 2 cups King Arthur White Whole Wheat Flour or Premium Whole Wheat Flour
  • 1 cup rolled oats, regular or quick
  • 1 tablespoon dried parsley or 2 tablespoons chopped fresh parsley
  • 1/2 cup Baker's Special Dry Milk or nonfat dry milk
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt
  • 2 large eggs
  • 1 cup peanut butter, crunchy or plain
  • 1/2 cup + 1 tablespoon cold water, enough to make a cohesive dough

Tips from our bakers

  • Remember, these are a treat for your dog, not part of the daily diet. One biscuit is plenty!

Directions

see this recipe's blog »

1) Preheat the oven to 300°F. Lightly grease a couple of baking sheets, or line them with parchment.

2) Mix together the flour, oats, parsley, dried milk, and salt.

3) Add the eggs and peanut butter, stirring to combine; the mixture will be crumbly.

4) Add enough water to bring the dough together; depending on the season, you may need to add a bit more (winter), or a bit less (summer).

5) To make biscuits using a dog-bone cutter, roll the dough about 1/4" thick, and cut with a 3 1/2" cutter (or the size of your choice). Gather and re-roll the scraps, and continue to cut biscuits until you've used all the dough.

6) To make dog "cookies," drop the dough in walnut-sized balls onto the prepared baking sheets. Flatten them to about 1/4".

7) Bake the biscuits for about 40 to 60 minutes, baking the smaller cookies for a shorter amount of time. When finished, the biscuits will be dark golden brown, and will be dry and crisp all the way through.

8) Remove the biscuits from the oven, and cool right on the pans.

Yield: about 42 larger (3 1/2" dog-bone) biscuits, 60 smaller (round) biscuits.

  • I made this for my dog using a gingerbread man cookie cutter. I can't believe how easy this was to make and am so pleased that my dog just loves them. I gave a couple to my friend and she told me later that her dog just gobbled them up. What a great recipe. Now I want to find more dog biscuit recipes. I'm hooked.

  • I didn't have any dried milk, so I used some of my son's left over whey protein powder. Besides, dehi milk is freaking expensive. I've used both vanilla and chocolate flavors. The dogs love them. My cats like them too!

  • Easy to make, and both my pups love them. Hubby tried the dough and thought it needed more honey. . .but then again he thought it was cookie dough :0)

  • I was a bit worried about the amount of peanut butter,so I doubled the amount of flour and oatmeal and added some cinnamon. They turned out very lovely, nice texture and very fraquent. The "girls" just love them

  • My neighbors just adopted a new puppy. I decided to try a dog goodie recipe From KAF, I am delighted I did, I also used the KAF dog treat bags which really turned my treats into a cute gift. The ingredients were just what I was looking for grains, nuts whole wheat flour. I used my mixer with my dough hook, the dough came together quickly and was soft with just a little tackiness. I used my marble rolling pin and rolled four different sizes of dog bone cut outs, I baked for a puppy, a black lab, a chocolate lab, a Collie and a Bull Mastiff. the dough made 24 of the 2 smallest size, 36 of the 3 inch size and 8 of the largest size. I decided on a thinner bone than pictured as this way like all dogs they could have two. They baked fairly quickly being thinner. After hearing back from all my doggie friends this recipe was given 5 wags!!!!! This will be my new go to doggie treat recipe. Dogs never complain, they just drop it on the floor and give you those eyes... good thing they all approved! Happy barking! Laurie@KAF
