Imagine Max's surprise when his new friend Eddie showed up the other day with a big ol' bucket-full of homemade cookies just for him. Imagine my surprise when I learned how easy they were to make.
I've baked dog treats in the past, but they always seemed to have about 20 ingredients and required me to haul out my food processor and a rolling pin. Needless to say, I haven't done that in a while. This recipe, on the other hand, is super-simple, and I can personally attest that many kinds of dogs find them irresistible. ...Not only did Max love 'em, but his friends Waylon, Romeo, Pickett and Coco all enjoyed one, too.
1 cup whole wheat flour
Yummy Peanut Butter Doggie Biscuits
1 cup whole oats
1/2 cup natural peanut butter
3 tbsp. molasses
3/4 cup water
Mix all ingredients into a stiff dough. Roll into balls and flatten to about 1/2-inch thick and arrange on a cookie sheet lined with parchment paper. Bake at 300 degrees for 30 minutes, turn off heat and let them sit in the oven until nice and hard. Makes about 12 treats.
NOTE: Eddie removed the cookies from the oven immediately after baking for a softer treat. Depending on your dog's taste, bake them hard or soft as you wish.
