Little Miss Maggie arrived in our lives early this January.
I’m pretty okay with the fact that my first grandchild is a dog. And I spoil her accordingly ~ especially when her daddy’s not around!
Here’s the recipe for the healthy homemade dog biscuits I make every week for our girl:
MAGGIE’S PUMPKIN BISCUITS
preheat oven to 300 F
- 2 cups whole wheat flour
- 1 cup rolled oats
- 1/2 cup non-fat dry milk
- chopped fresh parsley ~ about two tablespoons
- 1/2 teaspoon salt
- 2 eggs
- 1 cup pumpkin
- 1/2 cup chunky peanut butter
Mix together the flour, oats, parsley, dried milk, and salt.
Add the eggs, pumpkin, and peanut butter and mix well. Add water a bit at a time to bring the dough together.
Flour a cutting board and roll out dough to about 1/4″ thick. Cut with cookie cutter or roll into small ball-shaped treats and flatten with your hand before baking. Keep re-rolling the scraps until you’ve used all the dough.
Bake for about 45-60 minutes until crisp and browned.
Today, I baked eight large dog-bone shaped biscuits and 32 tiny heart-shaped treats for my Miss Maggie. I pulled the tiny hearts out @ 45 minutes and the larger treats at about 60 minutes.
Such an easy way to love the girl who’s brought so much love to me.
