Peanut Butter Biscotti for Dogs
(from the kitchen of Sophie Hamilton)
1 1/2 cups flour
1 1/2 cups whole wheat flour
1/2 cups wheat germ or oat bran
1 tsp. baking powder
2 tbsp. canola oil
2 tbsp. honey
2 tbsp. dry milk powder
3/4 cup milk
3/4 natural peanut butter
1/2 cups chopped peanust or carob chips (optional)
Preheat oven to 350 degrees F.
In a large bowl, combine the flours, wheat germ, baking powder and salt in a medium bowl; stir together the egg, oil, honey, milk powder and water. Add the egg mixture to the flour mixture along with the peanut butter and peanuts or carob chips, and stir until well-blended.
Shape the dough into a 14 - inch log on an ungreased baking sheet, and flatten until it's about 6 inches wide. You can brush the top with a beaten egg to give it a shiny finish.
Bake 30 minutes or until firm. Remove from the oven, and reduce temperature to 250 degrees F. Cool the log before cutting it into 1/2 inch slices on a slight diagonal using a sharp, serrated knife.
Place each slice on its bottom about 1/2 inch apart on the cookie sheet so it stands upright. This way, you don't need to flip the biscotti while re-baking. Bake for about 30 minutes. Turn the oven off, but the leave the biscotti inside for several hours to harden as they cool.
Makes about 18 biscotti. Store in a tightly sealed container.
