Homemade Dog Bones for your 4 legged family members!

A little free time always benefits my dogs, Owen and Tanner ( Big O and Little T). Usually, the free time is in the form of an extra walk, but this week with cold temps I decided to make them some early Valentine Treats.

I did a quick Google search, but some of the ingredients required an extra trip to the grocery store. So when I found a 3 ingredient recipe (milk, wheat flour and peanut butter) I was set. Technically it’s 4 if you count the baking powder.

It was easy to mix, roll out and cut. Just like a thick sugar cookie dough.

The only trouble I had was with the recipe. It had several typos and I suspect the oven temperature was one of the the typos. The original recipe said 200 degrees, but after 40 minutes the dog bones were super smooshy. So with some random temperature changes I settled on a cookie temperature of 350. I would start at 350 and bake for 20 minutes to get a baseline on a correct temperature. (That last sentence sounded so technical)!

2 cups whole wheat flour, 2 TBSP baking powder, 2 cups chunky peanut butter,2 cups nonfat milk.

I sorted and wrapped these treats up with twine on sale from Crate & Barrel.

Let’s not forget our pets for Valentines Day! These make great gifts for neighbors or teachers’ pets (get it)?
