The Birthday Boy and Homemade Peanut Butter Pup Biscuits


Say it [loudly] with me...

Happy Birthday, Grahammy!

That's right everybody, my little baby boy is turning 2 today!  Can you believe it?  Because I know Robbie and I can't.  How has it already been two years since that little angelic fluff ball came into our lives?  Geez, how time flies.




In celebration of the Big Birthday Boy, I figured I would stop being selfish and use my baking skills to make something for the pups!  Honestly, with how much we pamper our 'children', I still can't believe I hadn't done this earlier.  Not only were they quick and super simple, I have to imagine the cost of homemade puppy treats is much less than store-bought.  I mean, logically that makes sense, right?

So I ventured on over to my Pinterest board 'Lovin' My Pups' [you should follow me!] and took a gander at the treats I had previously pinned.  I didn't have too many options but I knew right away what I'd be making.  If I haven't mentioned this before, all of our pups are peanut butter obsessed [they obviously learned from their mama!], so this was a no brainer.  Homemade Peanut Butter Biscuits, it is.  And do they LOVE them!! 


Now, I can't vouch for the taste of this treat but what I can say is that Graham's crazy eyes [above] speak a thousand words.  He tends to get like this when it's treat time.  And homemade treats send him to another level.

All in all, my decision to make homemade puppy treats was a great one.  I know our pups agree.  As I said before and I'll say it again, the biscuits are seriously too easy to make, quick, healthy, and cheap [as if I spare expenses when it comes ot my babies!].  So if you haven't already, make something special for [wo]man's best friend.  Happy birthday, my little love bug  .

My Notes:
  • Since we have three dogs, I chose to double the recipe [reflected below].  However, just cut all of the ingredients in half to get a single batch.

Adapted from Pink Pistachio

Ingredients:
2 c. all purpose flour
1/2 c. old fashioned rolled oats
1/2 c. sweetened shredded coconut
1 tbsp. baking powder
1 c. creamy peanut butter
1 c. milk
2 tbsp. olive oil
2 tbsp. applesauce

Directions:
  1. Heat oven to 350F.  In a medium bowl, whisk together flour, oats, coconut, and baking powder.  Add in peanut butter, milk, olive oil, and applesauce, and mix to combine.  With hands, knead into a well incorporated ball.  
  2. On a piece of wax paper, roll out dough ball to about 1/2-inch thick.  Using desired cookie cutters, cut out biscuits and place onto an ungreased baking sheet. 
  3. Bake 20 minutes or until golden brown. 
Yield: about 50 biscuits

  2. Oh my goodness, I don't know what's more adorable, the cookies or the pups. Okay, the pups win, but really, the cookies are fantastic.
