Peanut Butter Bones for Molly

Molly the Brittany pup tries a Peanut Butter Bone.
Puppy's just chew and chew and eat and eat. I don't believe they chew because they are hungry....they just chew because the do!!!! So 2 huge raw hide bones a rubber squeaky toy, a cloth squeaky squirrel, an area rug, and a couple of electrical cords (not plugged in) later. Not to mention a batch of dog treats last week....We are into this 8 days now and we needed another bag of goodies.

We did share last week equally with Oreo and Daisy who reported they loved their treats!!

So, I hear a lot of pups like peanut butter so we gave these a whirl.

1 C. plus 2 T. chicken broth
1/4 C. peanut butter
2 T. canola oil
1 1/2 T. honey
1/4 C. strawberry jam or jelly
1 t. salt
3 1/4 C. all purpose flour
1/2 C. cornmeal
1/3 C. whole wheat flour
2 T. potato flakes
1/4 C. dry milk powder

2 t. yeast

Add all of the ingredients in the order given and stir together with a large wooden spoon until everything is moistened using the largest mixer stand bowl. Then scrape off the spoon and attach the dough hook and process for 15 minutes. Check the dough and add additional drops of water or teaspoons of whole wheat flour as needed to form a smooth elastic ball that does NOT cling to the sides of the bowl.

Preheat the oven to 300 degrees F. Use silpat mats, parchment paper or nonstick baking sheets.

Lightly flour the work surface and roll the dough to just slightly over 1/4 " thick. Cut in shapes of your choice and place on the prepared pans. 

Molly loved these
Bake for 40-50 minutes. Turn off the oven and leave the treats in the oven for 2-4 hours before storing in an air tight container. Note: I baked 2 pans at once so I switched racks and turned the pans half way through the baking time.

NOTE:  On 2/10/12 I changed the recipe and omitted the 1/4 C. raisins called for because a reader "Dogmom" brought to my attention raisins are not good for your dog.  I have verified this with our vet.  Thanks to Dogmom for sharing her information.
