Canine Cookies

Ok, I've had a bajillion requests for this recipe since my first annual "Pancakes for Puppies" fundraiser.
For those who don't remember, I made a bunch of these homemade doggie treats and had them on a plate by the front door for all those in attendance to take home for their dogs. I know my dogs love them, from what I understand everyone else's dogs loved them, and all the little kids that were at the party (who thought that they were people cookies) seemed to like them, too. Don't worry, these are all natural, so no children were harmed in the consumption of these treats.


Toby's Peanut Butter Treats

2 cups whole-wheat flour
1 tbsp. baking powder
1 cup natural peanut butter -chunky or smooth.
(regular peanut butter has lots of sugar that is not good for your pooch)
1 cup milk (be it almond milk, rice milk, soymilk, goats milk, etc.)

*I like to break the batch up into several sections and use different additions to each. Bananas, bacon bits, carrots, steamed broccoli, etc.

Preheat oven to 375. In a bowl, combine flour and baking powder. In another bowl, mix peanut butter and milk, then add to dry ingredients and mix well. Roll out dough on floured surface to approx. 1/4" thickness and use a cookie cutter to cut out shapes.
Bake for 20 minutes on foiled cookie sheet. Let cool, then store in an air tight container.
