Spent Grain Puppy Treats


  Like I said in the review I posted on Chicago Brew Werks, Paul was brewing this weekend!  If you’ve ever brewed, or know someone that brews there tends to be a big old pile of Spent Grains that you wind up as a waste product of the brewing process.  I always feel bad throwing them out, and have taken to using the leftover grains in my garden as compost.  However surfing the internet I found out people are using the spent grains in all sorts of ways, from making bread to making treats for their canine companions.

  This weekend I decided to scam some of the spent grains for some cookies for our canines (Ignacio and Luna).  The recipe below is found all over the net, and really does produce a great cookie for pets.  Iggy loves them (so much I could not get a picture of him with one because he’d run off happily to munch them in his crate) and so does Luna (she was all about being the model for me today!).  I hope this blog post has you trying this recipe, recycling spen grains,  and sharing some baked love with your puppy (or friend/families canines)!

Spent Grain Puppy Treats

4 cups Spent Grains
2 Eggs
1 cup Creamy Peanut Butter
2 cups Flour

1. Preheat the oven to 350°.
2.  Mix all of your ingredients together.
3.  Roll out on a floured surface.  Use whatever cookie cutters make you think of your companion! (Or whatever ones make you happy)  The edges will be rough due to the spent grains, but I think it adds a rustic character.
4.  Place your cut outs on a parchment papered pan and cook for 30 minutes.
5.  Lower your oven temp to 225° and cook for another 2 hours to dry out your cookies.
6.  Place your cookies on a cooling rack.
7.  When cool package in an airtight container for a week, or in the freezer for a couple of months.
