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!
2 cups whole wheat flour (plus a little more)
1/2 cup oats
1 TBS baking powder
1 cup creamy natural peanut butter
1 cup water (plus a little more)
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.
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!
