Sometimes I just feel like making my dog cookies (as is the case with all the loved ones in my life). When that itch arises, I scratch it with this super simple recipe.
Plus, they’re peanut butter…. and my dog LOVES peanut butter.
These can be baked in a specific pan for cookies, or they can simply be rolled, flattened, and placed on a baking sheet.
Peanut Butter Dog Treats
Yield: about 30 cookies
1 cup rolled oats
1/3 cup flour
2 Tablespoons ground flax
8 Tablespoons water
1/3 cup peanut butter
Extra 1/4 cup water
Preheat oven to 375º F.
Mix together the oats and flour in a bowl.
In a separate bowl, combine the ground flax and 8 Tablespoons water. Add peanut butter and cream until well-combined.
Add the flour/oat mixture to the flax/peanut butter mixture until combined. This may be quite dry, so add the extra 1/4 cup water (or more, if necessary) to create a workable dough.
This dough can be either pressed into a pan, or rolled into balls and flattened. Either way, the cookies should be baked for about 20 minutes.
