Spent Grain Dog Biscuits

Fido can’t imbibe in your home brewed porter or ale, but you can put your spent grain to good use with these simple and healthy dog biscuits. A heaping cup of peanut butter adds a flavor your dog loves, and chopped parsley helps maintain fresh breath.


— 4 cups spent grain
— 2 cups all-purpose (or whole wheat) flour
— 1 cup organic peanut butter
— 2 organic eggs
— 1 cup chopped parsley

Preheat oven to 350°. Mix all ingredients in a large bowl. Roll out onto a floured surface to 1/2″ — 3/4″ thickness. Cut out desired shapes with cookie cutters or by hand. Line up on baking sheet.

Bake at 350° for 30 minutes. Lower temp to 225° and continue baking for about 2 hours. This longer cooking time helps dry the cookies out and extend their shelf life. Cookies can be stored in an air tight container for about 2 weeks. The cookies can also be frozen for snacking at a later time.


2 — 3 dozen biscuits.
