Homemade Dog Treat: PEANUT BUTTER AND CARROT BISCUIT RECIPE

 

Peanut Butter and Carrot Biscuit Recipe

Preparation Time: 10 minutes; Cooking Time: 12-15 mins

Difficulty:   Easy

Ingredients:

  • 250g peanut butter*
  • 1 large carrot grated
  • 1 large egg
  • 180ml of water (if you know your dog can tolerate milk then you could swap this out for skimmed milk)
  • 300 grams of wholemeal flour
  • 30g of rolled oats (or quick oats)
  • 1 tablespoon of baking powder

*remember to make sure your peanut butter is free of the ingredient xylitol.  I always use 100% whole peanut butter which you can find in most stores (if you are based locally in Carnoustie, you’ll find this in Gather).

 

You’ll also need some cookie cutters – I opted to use our Lily’s Kitchen Cookie Cutter but feel free to raid your baking tray.

 Homemade Dog Treat: PEANUT BUTTER AND CARROT BISCUIT RECIPE

Method:

 

#1 Preheat your oven to 160 degrees Celcius

Pop your oven to 160 degrees Celcius so that it’s ready to bake when you are.

 

#2  Line your baking trays

As the recipe made around xxx biscuits, line two large baking trays with parchment paper to stop them sticking.

#3  Pop all the ingredients into a mixing bowl and MIX!

Yep, it’s really that simple. Grab all of the ingredients and gently mix them together in a mixing bowl using a wooden spoon.

They should form a dough like consistency.

If you feel the mixture is too wet, add some more flour, or too dry, then add some water.

#4 Get ready to roll

Pop some flour onto both your surface and a rolling pin and get ready to roll ;0)

You’ll want to roll out the dough to around 1/4 inch thickness and then use your cookie cutter shapes to make the biscuits.

 

#6  Ready, Steady…. Bake!

Pop your biscuits onto the trays leaving a little room around them to bake fully.

Then it’s time to grab a cuppa and let them do their thing in the oven.  The peanut butter and carrot biscuits should take between 12-15 minutes and once slightly brown are fully cooked. I like to leave them closer to the 15 minutes so that they are crunchy!

 

#7  Leave to cool

With three spaniels, this is the most difficult bit, so I’d recommend popping them onto wire trays and heading out for a walk while they cool down. Otherwise, it’s highly likely your pooch will be clambering up on the worktop to steal them ;0)

Now…. are you ready for treat time?
