Biscotti for Dogs
Biscotti for Dogs
8 cups flour (white or combination of white/whole wheat)
1-2 cups oats
1 cup corn meal
1 cup brown sugar or white sugar
8 oz peanut butter (2 heaping tablespoonfuls)
1/2 cup to 1 cup of canola oil (or any vegetable oil)
1/2 cup of molasses
3 cups water, more or less
Preheat oven to 400 degrees.
Mix the dry ingredients in a large bowl. Add peanut butter, oil and molasses and mix. Add most of the water and mix. You want to use just enough water to get all the ingredients mixed together in a stiff dough that sticks together but does not stick to your hands. If the dough is sticky when you touch it, add more flour. If you canít get all the ingredients mixed together add more water. Mix together with a spoon and/or with your hands.
Grease two cookie sheets with oil. Divide the dough in half and put half on each cookie sheet. Press the dough down with your hands to form a rectangle that is about the thickness of your finger.
Put cookie sheets in oven and set timer for 15 minutes. After 15 minutes, take one of the cookie sheets out of the oven. Slip a flat spatula under the biscuits to make sure it is not sticking. Use a pizza cutter or a sharp knife to cut the biscuits into strips about the width of your finger (a little wider for big dogs, a little narrower for small dogs). Separate the strips and turn them over or on their side. Put back in the oven, take the other cookie sheet out, cut into strips (as above) and return to the oven. Reduce oven to 350 and set the timer for 15 minutes.
When the timer goes off, turn the oven off and donít open the door. Leave the biscuits in the oven over night or until the oven is cool. They will continue to cook and get nice and crunchy.
When the biscuits are cool, you can break the strips into smaller pieces and give them to your dog!

I've recently started with 'puppy popsicles' considering it's coming into summer, and here that means all kinds of crazy heat. Pop three or four frozen blueberries into an ice cube mould, add almond milk, and freeze. The dogs love it! It's a good treat after a romp in the dog park, cools them down and keeps them busy for a few minutes.
