Peanut Butter Doggie Biscotti

BT Calgary | posted Thursday, Oct 9th, 2014

Even your pets need a little change up in their menus every once in awhile! This treat: In addition to protein and fibre, peanuts and peanut butter also contain biotin, which is important for the metabolism of nutrients and maintenance of skin, fur, and nails. And it’s tasty, too.

Makes about 2 dozen biscotti. Store in a covered container.

Ingredients

  • 3 cups (750 mL) whole wheat flour
  • ½ cup (125 mL) wheat germ or oat bran
  • 1 tsp. (5 mL) baking powder
  • 1 cup (250 mL) water
  • 1 large egg
  • 2 Tbsp. (30 mL) skim milk powder (optional)
  • 2 Tbsp. (30 mL) canola oil
  • 2 Tbsp. (30 mL) honey
  • ¾ cup (185 mL) peanut butter
  • ½ cup (125 mL) chopped peanuts (optional)

Method

  1. Preheat the oven to 350˚F.
  2. In a large bowl, combine the flour, wheat germ and baking powder. In a medium bowl, stir together the water, egg, powdered milk (if using), oil and honey. Add to the flour mixture along with the peanut butter and peanuts (if using) and stir until the dough comes together.
  3. Shape the dough into a log that’s about a foot long, place on a parchment-lined baking sheet and flatten until it’s 4-6 inches wide. If you like, brush the top with a little beaten egg to give it a shiny finish.
  4. Bake for about 30 minutes, until firm. Reduce the oven temperature to 250˚F. Cool the log and cut it on a slight diagonal into ½-inch thick slices using a sharp, serrated knife. Place the biscotti upright on the baking sheet, keeping them spaced about a half inch apart, and put them back into the oven for another hour.
