“I wanted to make a dog biscuit that would add some 'bulk' to my dogs' diet, and that they would get excited about. One of my dogs is sensitive to wheat so I needed to avoid wheat flour, but still needed something that would hold together well. Tho spelt is related to wheat, some people w/ wheat allergies tolerate it, so I thought I'd give it a shot. I use these as treats for coming inside when called or if someone has an upset tummy. So far so good!”
24-36 cookies

Ingredients Nutrition


  1. Beat the peanut butter and egg together until smooth. Add enough vegetable broth to make a creamy batter.
  2. Add the spelt gradually to make a stiff dough, fold in the oats.
  3. Roll the dough in to 1/2 inch balls and place on cookie sheet. Flatten with your fingers or the bottom of a cup if you want them to be crispier.
  4. I baked them at 350 for 10 minutes on one side, then flipped them over and baked an additional 7 minutes or so. They kind of sizzle in the oven, but did turn out decently crunchy. Not that the dogs mind one way or the other.
