Dog Treat Recipe
Peanut Butter n' Honey Crunchies
1/4 cup honey
1 cup crunchy peanut butter
2 cups chicken broth or water
1/3 cup peanut oil 1 cup rolled oats
1 cup oat bran
3-4 cups oat flour
Preheat oven to 350 ° F (180 ° C).
In a small dutch oven or large saucepan, combine honey, peanut
butter (try to find a brand that has no added suger, salt or other
ingredients; ideally it should only contain peanuts), chicken broth,
and peanut oil. Heat, stirring often, until mixture begins to simmer.
Remove from heat. Stir in rolled oats and oat bran and let cool
until lukewarm -- or cool enough to work with. Gradually blend in
oat flour, adding enough to form a stiff dough.
Transfer to a floured (oat flour or rye flour) surface and knead
until smooth (about 3-5 minutes). Shape the dough into a ball, and
roll to 1/4-inch (6 mm) thick. Use a mini-cookie cutter or cut into
small squares. Transfer to ungreased baking sheets, spacing them
about 1/4 inch (6 mm) apart. Gather up the scraps, roll out again,
and cut additional biscuits. If the dough becomes too crumbly to
work with after a few rollings, sprinkle with a little water to
bind it together and knead it for 30 seconds or so.
Bake for 30 minutes. Remove from oven and turn over. Bake for an
additional 30 minutes, or until golden brown on both sides. After
you finish baking all batches of biscuits, turn off the oven, spread
all the biscuits in one baking pan and set them in the oven to cool
for a few hours or overnight. The extra time in the oven as it cools
off helps make the treats crispier. These make a more delicate crunchy
biscuit, so we use them more for special or training treats, not
