For Your Little Chow Hound



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.

Thanks to VegSpinz and DJ Karma for this recipe, and another big thanks to Eddie!


Yummy Peanut Butter Doggie Biscuits 

1 cup whole wheat flour
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.

Hey Kids...I finally discovered what time you have to get up to blog on this thing...well maybe not the first person....and I am mildly suspicious that Eddie really doesnt exist, and is just a fictional character the C&S made up to make it appear that someone gets up bright and early to read her blogs....more on this later...I love this recipe although I recommend you add 1 tsp of pure chicken extract for a different flavored treat....P.S...i know its early and I am barely functioning, but dont these look sorta good for people too...have we sampled one? maybe dunked in cafe'? Until next time.....J.R.

Eddie, you are so sweet to bake homemade treats for my new favorite granddog! Hope I get to meet you soon!

J.R., it's so great to have you back. But why are you up so early?

And is this the famous Chloe from 'Heather Bakes?'

Yep, that's *the* Chloe. I think she's dressed as a giraffe in that picture, which is funny for a variety of reasons :)

Chloe says thanks for posting her photo, though I think she'd rather forget that costume. Whatever, it was adorable.
