Ingredients for Peanut Butter Nuggets
- 1/2 cup whole wheat flour
- 1 cup unbleached flour
- 1/2 cup old fashioned rolled oats
- 1/4 cup dry milk
- 1 1/4 cup water
- 1/2 cup peanut butter
- 2 tablespoons unsulphured blackstrap molasses
- 1 1/2 tsp. dry yeast
- Place all the ingredients in your bread maker in the order that your machine requires.
- Set the bread maker for the dough cycle.
- When the dough is ready, remove it and divide it into 3 pieces.
- Roll each chunk of dough into a sheet that is ¼” thick.
- Using an apple corer, press the corer hard onto the sheet of dough. This will make an indentation, but won’t cut all the way through the dough. I just take a sharp knife and go over the indentations to cut the pieces. You will end up with shapes like the dog biscuits in the picture and a small circle that is in the middle.
- Place the dog treats on a lightly greased baking sheet.
- Bake the treats at 300 degrees F for 45-60 minutes. Check them often to make sure that they don’t get too brown.
- Turn off the oven and let the dog biscuits dry in the oven overnight until they are hard and crisp.
This is the apple corer that I use for this recipe.
