Spent grain dog biscuits

This post is from the Making Beer forum, but I thought it probably should go here too:

"Any easy recipe for dog biscuits to use up some spent grain

4 cups spent grain
4 cups flour
1 cup peanut butter
1 egg

Editor's Note : hops are toxic to some species of dogs. Please do not use grain that has been mash-hopped!

Mix together (works well with hands) and roll onto cookie sheet. Score (almost through) into shapes you want, or use a cookie cutter as you would for cookies. They don't spread out and they pretty much end up the thickness you start with. This recipe made one cookie sheet but they are pretty thick so you could adjust that if you want them thinner.

They end up very crisp after they've been baked and dried. Bake at 350 for 30 min. Let cool enough to break them up then place back in the oven to dry for 8-10 hours at 225. You want to make sure they dry adequately. If they don't dry enough they will mould. Dried thoroughly they will store well in an airtight container. (or just omit the second baking and put them in the freezer instead).

You can also substitute pizza sauce for the peanut butter, or a bit of garlic oil. Just don't make it too wet."

Garlic can also be toxic to some dogs.
