Ingredients for Peanut Butter Dog Bone Recipe
- 1 1/2 cups whole wheat flour
- 1 cup unbleached flour
- 1/2 cup old fashioned rolled oats
- 1/4 cup dry milk
- 1 1/4 cups water
- 1/2 cup peanut butter
- 2 T. blackstrap molasses
- 1 1/2 tsp. dry yeast
- 1/2 cup finely chopped peanuts
- Place all the ingredients in your bread-maker in the order suggested by the manufacturer.
- Use the Dough cycle.
- When the dough is finished, remove it from the bread maker and divide it into 3 portions.
- Roll each dough portion until it is 1/8-1/2”. This will depend on the size bone cookie cutter that you are using. For example if you are using the little 1” bone cutter, you should roll the dough to 1/8” thick. On the other hand, if you are using a 6-8” bone cutter, roll the dough to ½”, so the finished dog bone treats will be bigger.
- Place the dog bones on a greased cookie sheet.
- Let them rise in a draft-free warm place for 1 hour. In the summer (or warmer climates) you can just let them rise in the warm room. If it’s winter or drafty, you might put them in the oven (turned off or warmed to 175 degrees F and then turned off).
- Bake the dog bone treats for 30-60 minutes at 275 degrees F. Again, this will depend on the size bones you are making. You’ll have to experiment a bit here. The first time you make them you will have to watch them pretty carefully and keep track of the time. That way the next time you use the dog bone recipes you will know how long to bake them in your oven.
Make sure you have everything you need, before you start to bake. And, perhaps most important of all, you’ll need to have a set of nice quality dog bone cookie cutters.
This peanut butter dog bone recipe is easy and fun, and nice dog bone cookie cutters are the key to making them look professional.
