Homemade Dog Treats

Happy Valentine’s Day!!  To spread the love today, I made some peanut butter dog treats and brought them to the sweet rescue pups at Furburbia, the adoption center for Friends of Animals, Utah.  These pups are so sweet, I hope they find their forever homes soon.  I found a version of this recipe on the food network but made a couple changes to keep it vegan.  These would be easy to whip up in a stand mixer, but I felt like putting in some love this morning so did the mixing and kneading by hand. These were taste-test approved by Bowie and his best girlfriend Avy.  Hope everyone has a great day!

Heat the oven to 375 degrees.  In a large bowl, mix together the flour, oats and baking powder.  Next mix in the peanut butter and water.  Add a little more water if the dough is not coming together well.

Bowie was on alert as the smell of peanut butter filled the air…

On a well floured surface, knead the dough for a few minutes until it forms a nice ball.  Roll out flat and make your cookie shapes.  Bake the cookies for 15-20 minutes, depending on how thick/thin you rolled the dough.  Keep an eye on them. Hope your pups enjoy!
