It is pumpkin spice time!! I love this time of year. The weather is cool. The Rio Grande valley looks beautiful as the cottonwoods change colors. The hot air balloons everywhere are the best! But the food…YUM!!! The food in the fall is so good. Just because we get to have all the amazing yummies of all doesn’t mean that your dog has to miss out. Instead of giving them some of your cookies, which could have all kinds of ingredients that are harmful, try making this simple dog-safe fall biscuit recipe. These are so good you might want to eat them too! (P.S. you can!)

Ingredients

  • 1 cup crunchy peanut butter
  • 1 large egg
  • 1/4 cup honey (you can get great local honey at the farmers market)
  • 1 cup old fashioned oats (not instant)
  • 2 cups whole wheat flour
  • 1/3 cup vegetable oil
  • 1/3 cup water
  • 4 squares white almond bark (try not to eat it all yourself)
  • 1 teaspoon vegetable oil
  • sprinkles

Instructions

  1. Preheat your oven to 350 degrees Fahrenheit.
  2. Line a baking pan with parchment paper or use a silicone baking liner.
  3. In a bowl combine all your ingredients. You can mix this by hand but a stand mixer is easier. Beat until it forms a stiff dough.
  4. Roll or use your hands to flatten your dough out into a rectangle about one inch thick. This does not need to be smooth or perfect.
  5. Chose your favorite cookie cutter, we like a bone-shaped cutter, and cut out your cookies. Keep flattening the dough so you can use all of it.
  6. Bake for 15 minutes and then flip all the cookies, then bake for another 15 minutes
  7. Take them out of the oven, they should be a nice golden brown, and transfer them to a wire rack to completely cool.
  8. While the cookies are cooling, microwave the almond bark. Make sure to stir every 30 seconds. You may want to reduce your microwave power level by half. Chocolate can be easily burned in a microwave. You can also melt it in a double boiler.
  9. Once the almond bark is melted and smooth dip half of the cooking to it and lay it on parchment paper.
  10. Sprinkle your dipped bones with sprinkles and let cool. Make sure to decorate before the dip has a chance to dry.
  11. You can store this in an airtight container for up to two weeks or freeze it for 3 months.
This is a super simple recipe that we know you will love. For added fun, you can put some natural food coloring into the almond bark. Maybe make it orange and use black sprinkles. Oooh, how spooky!
