Homemade Dog Biscuits

It's no secret that Finn is the apple of my eye. So when it comes to finding new ways to spoil him I am all for it. When we first rescued Finn he was three months old and while we thought he was just a really mellow pup, turns out he had all sorts of parasites in his tummy.
Giardia
Coccidia
&
Tapeworm
all in the span of about 2 months. We were told by our vet that his GI tract would never really be 100% again. It also wasn't until about a year ago that we figured out Finn is allergic to chicken! Which in reality turned out to be the problem! So after eliminating chicken from his diet, he has been a happy go lucky pup.
Turns out Finn is a pretty picky eater. Unless it's cheese cause boy is that pup like his mama - there is no cheese we will say no to. So I usually supplement Greek God's Vanilla Honey Greek Yogurt into his kibble because I think this brand is the tastiest - no I have not been paid to say that. Finn approves and it helps me to ensure he is eating every night.

So when I saw a recipe for Homemade Biscuits on A Cozy Kitchen and saw I already had everything in my pantry I decided to whip my boy up some sweet treats. Without further adieu:

Homemade Dog Biscuits
*recipe adapted from A Cozy Kitchen

Ingredients:

1/2 cup of creamy peanut butter
1/4 cup of honey
1 tablespoon of olive oil
1 cup water
1 cup rolled oats
2 cups flour

Preheat oven to 350 degrees. Whisk together peanut butter, honey, oil & water.
In a separate bowl. combine flour and oatmeal. Mix dry ingredients into wet ingredients.
Place dough on flour dusted surface. Roll or press dough out to about 1/4" thick.

(Edit: After posting the recipe I realized I forgot to put the water in! Oops! So your dough will be much more dough-like. I made them again this past weekend 12/20/13 and they came out perfect. Unlike the dry dough you see below!)
Use a small bone cookie cutter to cut out biscuits.

Bake biscuits for 14-16 minutes. Transfer to a cooling rack.

Best part...Finn loves them!
