Bake-Your-Own dog treats recipe.
We’ve just gotten over Valentine’s Day, when up comes National Love Your Pet Day on February 20. I don’t know what marketing mind made this up, but Carrington Farms, purveyor of coconut oil and other healthy products developed a recipe for dog treats using coconut oil.
Here’s the company’s recipe for baking dog treats for your pooch or even to try yourself. After all, there’s nothing in it that’s not fit for human consumption:
Peanut Butter Bones
1/2 cup of creamy peanut butter
1/4 cup honey
1 tablespoon of Carrington Farm’s Virgin Coconut Oil
1 cup chicken broth
1 cup rolled oats
1 cup whole wheat flour
1 cup all-purpose flour
Preheat oven to 350 degrees.
Whisk together peanut butter, honey, oil and chicken broth. In a separate bowl, combine flours and oatmeal. Mix dry ingredients into wet ingredients.
Place dough on flour-dusted surface. Roll or press dough out to about ¼ inch thick. Use a small bone-shaped cookie cutter to cut out cookies — or any other shape; the dog won’t care. The size is up to you, depending on the size of your dog. Roll out leftover scraps and cut out as many as possible.
Line a cook sheet with parchment paper. Place cut-out cookies on the baking sheet. Bake for 14 to 16 minutes. Transfer to a cooling rack. Store at room temp in an airtight container for about a week, or longer if you store in the refrigerator.
