Peanut Butter Dog Treats

Why should the humans have all the fun? I'm a dog-lover from way back. When we had our four (yes, four) dogs and cat, I was always looking for special treats for them. I had a very good friend who made dog treats and sold them at my office. Our dogs loved the Peanut Butter treats and I knew they were made with good ingredients. After all, who knows what goes into the stuff at Wal-Mart?

So, here's a great recipe for a Peanut Butter Dog Treat that is a great way to show your special pup just how much you care!


1 1/2 C. Water
1/2 C. Safflower Oil (or Canola Oil)
2 Medium Eggs
3 Tbs. Peanut Butter (sugar free, creamy - organic is even better)
2 Tsp. Vanilla
1 1/2 C. Whole Wheat Flour
1 1/4 C. Cornmeal
1/2 C. Rolled Oats
Additional flour for processing


Preheat oven to 400 degrees F. Mix water, oil, eggs, peanut butter and vanilla with a wire whisk. Add flour, cornmeal and oats. Combine with a mixer. Take one third of dough and place on floured surface. Flour top of dough and gently knead, adding more flour as necessary to form a pliable dough. (This will be a substantial amount of flour.) Roll out into 1/2-3/4 inch thickness and cut into shapes using cookie cutters or biscuit cutter. Repeat until all dough is used. Place on an ungreased cookie sheet (or silicone pad) . Bake for 20-25 minutes. Leave in oven after turning off oven additional 20 minutes to crisp. Store in airtight container.

There you have it, a great treat for the puppies!
