Look at these beautiful treats, when I first saw them I started to drool a little myself but I can say that about all of the pictures on 337 Greenwich! After you make these for your dog don’t forget to visit the site and make something tasty for yourself.
All Natural Peanut Butter Dog Biscuits and Frozen Yogurt Sandwiches
For the biscuits – originally adapted from Sugarlaws delicious recipe:
2 cups whole wheat flour (you can also replace with rye flour)
1/2 tbsp baking powder
1 cup skim milk (you can replace with non-fat plain yogurt)
1 cup peanut butter
1/2 tbsp cinnamon
Optional: 1/2 cup Quaker Old Fashioned Oats (not instant)
Preheat the oven at 325F.
Mix the flour, baking powder, and cinnamon in a large bowl. Add the milk, peanut butter, and oats the the bowl. The oats are optional, but I like the texture it adds. With your hands mix all the ingredients.
Roll the dough out to about 1/4″ thick and use your favorite cookie cutters. Place the biscuits on parchment paper and on a cookie sheet. Bake until golden brown, about 30 minutes.
Turn the oven off and remove the parchment paper, but leave the biscuits in the oven on the cookie sheet overnight. (You can give your furry friend a few treats without waiting till the next day, I’m sure they’ll appreciate that!) Store in jars in the fridge.
For Yogurt Sandwiches:
1 pint plain, non-fat yogurt
Baked biscuits (above)
Line a large tupperware with a bottom sheet of parchment paper (cut to the exact shape of the container). Add the yogurt until it is about 1/4″ in depth. Place in the freezer and allow to freeze for about an hour. You can start this before you bake the biscuits.
When it is frozen, remove the yogurt from the container by carefully placing a flat plate on top of the container and inverting it. The yogurt sheet should now be on the plate. Remove the parchment paper from the yogurt top. Using the same cookie cutter that you used for the biscuits, press into the yogurt and make cut outs. With a spatula, lift the cut out yogurt and place on top of a biscuit. Layer another biscuit on top. You can either serve, or place on parchment paper and put the assembled sandwiches back int he freezer (in a covered tupperware) for later.
