Homemade Dog Treats Using Spent Grain

treatsA simple recipe to keep every member of the family happy with your brew hobby!

Ingredients:

  • 4 cups spent grain**
  • 2 cups flour
  • 1 cup peanut butter
  • 2 eggs

Directions:

  1. Take all the ingredients and mix in a large bowl, until it looks pretty evenly mixed up.
  2. Spread the mixture on a 12 ¾ x 9 x 2 pan (Placing tinfoil underneath helps with cleanup).
  3. Press the dough around until you’ve got approximately an even inch of thickness.
  4. Bake for about 30 min at 350 F to solidify them.
  5. Remove from the oven and if you’re feeling creative, use a cookie cutter to make shapes, or take a knife and cut them into squares.
  6. Reduce the heat to 225 degrees and bake them on a cook sheet for four to five hours. It may take longer for thicker treats.
    • Make sure that you bake the treats until they are completely dried out. If they aren’t totally dry, they can become moldy.
  7. Store in an air tight container.

**IMPORTANT REMINDER: Be sure there are NO HOPS included with the spent grain.  Hops are toxic to dogs and can cause extreme illness or death.
