Save some spent grain from your next homebrew to make a treat for your furry friend! Here's a basic recipe that will guarantee a satisfied pup.
4 cups spent grain
2 cups flour (whole wheat preferred)
1 cup peanut butter
2 organic eggs
Preheat oven to 350 degrees. Meanwhile combine and mix each of the ingredients thoroughly until a thick dough forms.
Roll out the dough on a generously floured surface and cut shapes with cookie cutters, lining them up on baking sheets.
Dough is very sticky; add flour as needed.
Bake at 350 degrees for 30 minutes, then reduce temperature to 225 degrees and continue baking for 2 hours. This will ensure they are completely dry to extend their shelf life.
Dried cookies will keep for 2 weeks in an airtight container. Freeze to keep them longer.
** WARNING: Do not add hops to the dog treats. Dogs can be dangerously allergic to hops.
