Do you know anyone that owns a dog and doesn’t keep dog treats in the house? I can’t say that I do, or ever have. For that matter, I have known people who have spent more money on their pets then they have spent on themselves. We don’t quite fall in that category but we do keep a stash of treats on hand to encourage, or award for good behavior. Or just because.
Since we’ve witnessed a lot of good behavior lately, and buying treats can be expensive, I decided to put my baking skills to work and make some homemade dog treats.
To start this project I bought a bone shaped cookie cutter for .79 cents, I did a little on-line research, and checked my cupboards for likely ingredients and got busy.
2 c. whole wheat flour
1 tbsp. baking powder
1/2 c. peanut butter
1 c. beef broth
Preheat oven to 350 degrees. Grease cookie sheet.
Mix all ingredients together. Roll out dough with rolling-pin and cut with cookie cutter. Place on cookie sheet and bake for about 15 minutes. Allow treats to cool completely before packaging.
These treats were a hit with our dog. Do you have a pet? What kind is it? Is it spoiled rotten?
