Piggy Biscuits

Posted on

My youngest brother recently bought three pigs, and the other day he was telling me that he wished that he had treats to give them when he goes in the pen. It is much easier to handle them if they want to come to you, and a happy pig is a good thing.

So yesterday I made him some cookie type biscuits for his pigs. He had been joking when he suggested that I make him some, so he was pretty surprised that I actually did. Am I a good sister or what?

These treats are also great for dogs. I know Raider didn’t mind being a guinea pig. I chose this recipe because we had some bananas that were just weird. They never really ripened and were not edible at all. But since pigs don’t really care if their bananas are ripe or not, it was a perfect way to not waste them. I was going to make them into fun shapes, but then I just went with a 2″ cookie cutter.

Peanut Butter and Banana Piggy Biscuits (adapted from allrecipes.com)

Ingredients:
  • 3 eggs
  • 1 c peanut butter
  • 1 ½ c mashed banana
  • 3 tbsp honey
  • 3 c whole wheat flour
Directions:
Preheat oven to 300° F. Line baking sheet with parchment paper or lightly grease. Stir together eggs, peanut butter, banana and honey in a medium bowl; blend thoroughly. Mix in the flour until combined. Turn dough out on very lightly floured surface and roll to ¼” thick. Cut into desired shaped with a cookie cutter and place on prepared baking sheet.
Bake biscuits until dried, about 30 min, depending on size. Remove from oven and cool on a wire rack. Makes about 40, depending on size of the cookie cutter.
 

If your dog is allergic to wheat, I’m pretty sure other types of flour could be used.
