Going To The Dogs

Awhile back a friend of mine over at Recycled Lovelies posted a recipe for some DIY dog treats that included some rolled oats. This piqued my curiosity as I’ve been trying lately to find a way to use my spent grains that are leftover from brewing. After a little research online I found a recipe buried in a forum for homebrewers. As soon as I get another batch of beer made I’ll make some of these as well. Who knows maybe I can get the dog to write a review for me so you can read it from her point of view. Credit for the recipe goes to beerrific and schweaty over at homebrewtalk.

Dogs Beer Bars

  • 4 cups spent grain
  • 4 cups flour
  • 1 cup peanut butter (beef tallow or bacon grease can be substituted)
  • 1 egg

Mix all ingredients thoroughly. Press down into a dense layer on a large cookie sheet. Score almost all the way through into the shapes you want. Bake for about half an hour at 350 F to solidify them. Loosen them from the sheet, break the biscuits apart and return them, loosely spread out on the cookie sheet, to the oven at 225 F for 3 to 4 hours to dry.
