Spent Grain Dog Treats


Any easy recipe for dog biscuits to use up some spent grain
  • 4 cups spent grain
  • 4 cups flour
  • 1 cup peanut butter
  • 2 egg
Mix together (works well with hands) and roll onto cookie sheet. Score (almost through) into shapes you want, or
use a cookie cutter as you would for cookies. They don't spread out and they pretty much end up the thickness you
start with. This recipe made one cookie sheet but they are pretty thick so you could adjust that if you want them
thinner.
 
They end up very crisp after they've been baked and dried. Bake at 350 for 30 min. Let cool enough to break them up
then place back in the oven to dry for 8-10 hours at 225. You want to make sure they dry adequately, if they look
like a fig newton when you break one they're not dry. If they don't dry enough they will mold. Dried thoroughly
they will store well in an airtight container.
 
You can also substitute pizza sauce for the peanut butter, or a bit of garlic oil. Just don't make it too wet.
