Dog Treats Made from Corn

Using inexpensive canned corn, I was able to make a large supply of crunchy dog treats. Our new puppy Halo loves being rewarded with these biscuits!

Makes about 8 cups of half-inch treats.

Ingredients:

  • 2 (15 oz) cans whole kernel corn (preferably unsalted)
  • 2 c whole wheat flour (or all-purpose)
  • 1 c corn meal
  • 1/4 c nutritional yeast
  • 1/2 c peanut butter

Directions:

  1. Preheat oven to 300 degrees F, and lightly oil 2 (14 x 10) inch baking sheets or 1 (14 x 20) inch baking sheet.
  2. Drain the corn and pulse it in a food processor or blender until pureed.
  3. In a large bowl, combine the flour, corn meal, and nutritional yeast. Mix in the pureed corn and peanut butter.
  4. Knead by hand until you have a cohesive stiff dough that has the texture of cookie dough. Add a teaspoon or two of water if needed or a bit more flour if too loose.
  5. Press dough evenly into the prepared pan(s). Cut dough, slicing it in the pan, forming squares or diamond shapes of the size your dog will like.
  6. Bake 20 minutes. Remove any biscuits that may be browned and firm to the touch. Place them on a holding dish. Put remainder back in oven for 20 more minutes, or until done.
  7. Cool completely. Break apart the biscuits. Place in air-tight containers.
