  • Mix together whole-wheat flour, all-purpose flour, cornmeal and oats. Make a well in the center of the dry ingredients and gradually pour in water, oil, eggs, peanut butter and vanilla. Mix well.

  • On a flat surface use a rolling pin to roll out the dough. Cut the dough into dog biscuit shapes using a cookie cutter. Place the biscuits onto the prepared cookie sheet.

  • Bake the cookies for 20 minutes. After the biscuits have cooked 20 minutes turn off the oven off but let the biscuits remain inside the oven for another 20 minutes to harden.

If you cut the amount of water down to 1/2 cup, this is a five-star recipe, according to my Merry! She really loves these biscuits, and I feel good knowing what goes into them. I just made my second batch, and used beef broth instead of water and added a little crushed garlic for flea control. Will experiment with using bacon grease for part or all of the oil next time. i also agree that the 2 Tablespoons of vanilla may be excessive, i cut that to 2 teaspoons. This does make a lot, and since Merry is a small dog, I cut the recipe in half. Still made 75 small biscuits. Read More

This was a waste of a good afternoon! What a mushy mess! There is way too much liquid called for in this recipe. After reading the other reviews that used only 1/2 c. water instead of 1-1/2 cups, I'm willing to give them another try. After so many failed attempts with recipes from this site, you'd think I'd know better and read the reviews first! Read More

After reading all the other reviews I used 1/4 c veg oil and 1/4 c bacon fat in place of canola oil. I also added 3 Tbls of honey cooked them on non stick cookie sheets which eliminted greasing the pans and also found if you cooked them at 350 degrees for 12-15 min. They came out great. Our fussy dogs loved them! Read More

These come out great! I made them to sell at a dog walk-a-thon for the shelter I volunteer at. The dogs loved them. After following the advice of the others I only added 1/2 cup of water. That is the correct amount! The dough forms and cuts easily and bakes up just like a biscuit. I tasted one myself and it wasn't bad. I was a bit wary of the 2 Tbsp of vanilla extract (that seems like an awful lot) so next time I'll use 2 tsp and see how they come out. Read More

I didn't read the reviews until after I found the dough more of a batter but I just tossed in flour and oats till it was workable and it cooked up very easily. These also make a good gift in a jar for the animal lover in your list. Just increase the recipe by about 1/4 and the dry ingredients fit nicely into a wide-mouth quart jar. Read More

These are excellent doggie biscuits. I think rather than following the water you should focus on the as needed part. Mine took more than 1/2 cups but no more than 3/4. Thanks for sharing! Read More

My dog loved these biscuits! She gave them as a Christmas gift to her best friend next door. Some of the other users had an issue with the amount of water used. The recipe does say "as needed". I added all the other wet ingredients first and found that I didn't need any water at all. Great recipe! Read More

My dogs absolutely love these treats. I use chunky peanut butter and cut down on the water. Use seasonal cookie cutters for gifts for the doggies in your life! Read More

While I followed the recipe exactly as written the dough was not even close to being of a consistency to be able to roll it out. I used the drop method. Also I am assuming they need to be refridgerated since they became moldy after a few days. The dogs did love them. Read More
