DIY Dog Treats (EASY)

With a new puppy comes new responsibility and expenses.  One of the easiest ways to keep the expenses down is making your own dog treats.  Super easy and good.  We know they are good because they are made from things that we humans eat.  The recipe was simple and the finished product was great.  With the help of my middle daughter, we whipped these up in just a few minutes.  We found this recipe on cesarsway.com and they are the basic dog treats.

 Ingredients:

– 2 Cups Whole wheat flower.

– 1 tsp salt

– 1 egg

– 1tsp bullion (we used liquid chicken stock)

– 1/2 cup hot water.

**You can add in pretty much anything at this point if you would like.  Some of the suggestions were bacon, liver powder, shredded cheese.  None of those seemed appealing so we went with p-nut butter (1 tsp).

We added all those ingredients to our bread machine and hit “dough”.  Within 5 minutes, we had a dough ball that was ready to roll out.  I did have to add another 1/4 cup of water to get the cosistency right.  If you don’t have a bread machine, kneed the ingredients until you have a dough ball. 

-We rolled the dough out on our flour covered counter to about 1/4″ thick.  (original recipe said 1/2″ thick, but we have a small dog so we fugured the thinner treats would work best)

-Used cookie cutters to make shapes.  

– Placed on a lightly greased cookie sheet.

– Baked at 350 for 30 minutes.

Final Product (Daisy’s Darlin’ Dog treats):
