Want to give your fur-babies a treat? Here's the recipe -
EASY OATMEAL-PEANUT BUTTER DOG COOKIES
Prep time: 20 minutes
Bake time: 40 minutes
Preheat oven to 350 degrees
2 cups whole wheat flour
1/2 cup wheat germ
1 cup oatmeal
1/2 cup peanut butter
1-1/4 cup hot water
Combine ingredients to make stiff dough. Turn out dough on well-floured surface (dough is sticky) and knead 8 or 10 times, adding extra flour if necessary. Roll out about 1/4 inch thick and cut with your choice of cookie cutter. (No cookie cutter? You can also roll the dough into 1-inch balls, and flatten with a fork, like "traditional" peanut butter cookies.) Place on lightly greased cookie sheet, and bake for 40 minutes at 350 degrees. Cool completely (if the dogs will let you) and store in an airtight container. Will keep for about 2 weeks, but will probably be eaten before that!
Recipe yield will depend on what size cookie cutter you use - I use heart-shaped cutters, a large one about 2 inches across and a smaller one about 1 inch across, and get about 4-1/2 dozen large cookies and 3-1/2 dozen small cookies per batch. Recipe can easily be halved or doubled.
