Egg-free Peanut Butter Dog Cookies
To the left is a picture of him in his natural non-yellow state.
When we had the original Kiska, I baked dog cookies all the time. Rolled them out, cut them in cute dog bone shapes. I even made them for other people as gifts. Did I mention this was before I had human children?
Now my time is more limited and the whole egg-free thing eliminated my favorite dog cookie recipe as a choice. I have though found a few alternatives and some ways to make them quickly even if the final product isn’t as cute… my dogs don’t seem to care. 🙂
2 cups flour (whole wheat preferably)
1 1/2 teaspoons baking powder
1/3 cup peanut butter (smooth if you are going for cute)
1/2 cup hot water
1/2 cup hot broth (I used bone broth, but you want to watch the sodium so look for low salt)
2 tablespoons chia seeds (optional)
2 tablespoons molasses (optional)
Preheat oven to 375 degrees.
Mix everything together in one big bowl…. remember the liquid (water/broth) is supposed to be hot, but not so hot you burn yourself if you mix this with your hands, which I do.
Line a cookie sheet with parchment paper.
Now, for EASY, press the dough flat on the cookie sheet. Go for 1/4 thick. Once it is flat, cut it into squares and separate them out as much as you can.
For CUTE, roll the dough to 1/4 inch thick and cut them into cute dog bone cookies or hydrants or whatever dog appropriate shape you like.
Bake for 20 minutes (or longer depending on your oven), let cool, and WOW your pets… okay maybe not wow, but mine seem to like them. 🙂
