Carrot & Peanut Butter Biscuits

A couple weeks ago, a friend of mine told me I had to try dipping carrots in peanut butter. Now, I have always been a fan of ants on a log. Celery and peanut butter, I’m down with 100%. But carrots and peanut butter? Not totally sold.

However, my dogs are crazy about both carrots and peanut butter. Thus, my next dog biscuit creation!

Grated carrots, apple, and oats give these biscuits a nice texture, and of course they love the peanut butter flavor!

The recipe is super simple. Mix all ingredients together until combined and roll out on a floured surface. Use your favorite cookie cutter and place on a baking sheet covered with parchment paper.

I also took this opportunity to teach Oliver to “leave it.” Now, Oliver minds fairly well when I tell him “no.” I placed a plate of treats onto the floor and when he approached the plate, I sternly said “leave it.” Apparently that was enough to make him fear the plate! I couldn’t get him to sit still anywhere near the plate!

We’ll have to continue working on “leave it!” This was as close as I could get him!

Bailey, on the other hand, was like a vulture! He was circling us and waiting for his chance to gobble them up!
