Mix: 2 cups whole-wheat flour, 1 tbsp. baking powder, 1 cup peanut butter (chunky or smooth), 1 cup milk
Preheat oven to 375'F. In a bowl, combine flour and baking powder. In another bowl, mix peanut butter and milk, then add to dry ingredients and mix well. Place dough on a lightly floured surface and knead. Roll dough to 1/4 inch thickness and use a cookie cutter to cut out shapes. Bake for 20 minutes on a greased baking sheet until lightly brown. Cool on a rack, then store in an airtight container. They can burn quickly, so keep an eye on them. My dogs go nuts over them, and if I say "Kennel up and you'll get a cookie," they all head straight for the kennel with no problems. I've actually tried 'em and they aren't bad, kinda cracker-like.
I decided to make another treat to use as a training tool, something a little more "flavorful" that will be motivation to listen to commands. I know that praise is the best way to train, but my "pack" seems to listen with their stomachs. These goodies do the trick and taste great also.
Pumpkin/Peanut butter treats
2 1/2 cups whole wheat flour, 2 eggs, 1/2 cup canned pumpkins, 1/2 teaspoon sale, 1/2 teaspoon cinnamon, 2 tablespoons peanut butter.
|1.||Preheat oven to 350 degrees F (175 degrees C).|
|2.||Whisk together the flour, eggs, pumpkin, peanut butter, salt, and cinnamon in a bowl. Add water as needed to help make the dough workable, but the dough should be dry and stiff. Roll the dough into a 1/2-inch-thick roll. Cut into 1/2-inch pieces.|
|3.||Bake in preheated oven until hard, about 40 minutes.|
