Have you ever noticed how EXPENSIVE good quality, healthy ingredient, dog biscuits are?!?! You can spend a small fortune on these little treats, only to have them disappear in seconds with one gulp from Fido! These Homemade Parsley Dog Biscuits will not only make your pooch happy and have fresh breath, but will also save you wads of cash to buy them more toys! No complaints here…
Dexter’s treat bowl was rather low, and he didn’t seem too pleased about it! Rather than buy treats for him that would cost me my pay check and be full of chemicals, I decided to whip up a batch of biscuits for him at home. These biscuits always come out perfectly! The parsley helps to freshen Dexter’s hot breath, and what dog doesn’t need help with that!?!? Using only 5 ingredients, these treats are simple to make, healthy, and are delicious (according to Dexter)!

Here is what you need:
- 2 cups of whole wheat flour (stone ground adds a nice texture)
- 1 egg
- 1 tablespoon of dried parsley
- 3/4 cup creamy peanut butter
- 3/4 cup water
- cookie cutter (Find some cute ones HERE)
Here’s what you do:
- In a mixer or food processor (with dough blade), blend together all ingredients, adding them in the order above. The dough should be slightly firm but not wet and sticky to the touch. Add small amounts of additional water if needed until your dough reaches the correct consistency to be rolled out.
2. Roll out the dough until it is just under a 1/4 inch in thickness. Preheat the oven to 350°F . Then cookie cut the desired shape you want.
3. Bake for 25 minutes. Shut the heat off after 25 minutes and let the biscuits sit int he closed oven for an additional 15-20 minutes. I do this so that the cookies dry out and become crunchy. If they are too soft, they might spoil in the cookie jar!
4. Voila! There you have it! A nice sized batch of crunchy dog biscuits.
-Add vegetable, chicken, or beef broth instead of water.
– Add additional ingredients such as carrots, shredded cheddar cheese, or apples. * Note that adding these wet ingredients will not allow your biscuits to dry out completely. You can keep them in the refrigerator to preserve them longer.
