For all our furry friends out there!

I have a 5 year old peek-a-poo. She is curled up on her little pink blanket right now. This morning I was playing with her and felt something on her chest.... IT WAS A TICK! GROSS! It didn't bite her so thankfully I got it off in time, not sure how it got there since she has her monthly treatment, nonetheless I felt compelled to share a recipe for super simple dog treats. Abby LOVES them!

Peanut Butter Cookies:

2 C Whole Wheat Flour
1 T Baking Powder
2 T Honey
1/2 C Skim Milk
1/2 C Water
1 C Peanut Butter (sugar free!)

*I use Smart Balance chunky PB which is sweetened with Molasses
*Add chopped carob chips for something extra special :)

Mix the flour and BP together in one bowl. In a second bowl combine the remaining ingredients. Slowly stir into Flour mixture until combined. Turn out onto floured surface and roll to 1/8'' thickness. Use your favorite cookie cutter or just cut into bit size strips. Bake at 375 degrees for 15-18 minutes on a greased cookie sheet. Remove from the oven and let dry until crisp (this will take a few hours). Store in an airtight container. These are adorable and would make a great gift!
