Baxter's Bones: What A Treat

My little guy, Baxter.

I looked in Baxter's jar of treats this morning, and realized he was getting low. It had been way too long since I had made treats, instead of buying them. Time to rectify that. :-)  Here's one of several recipes I love to make when making my loyal friend something yummy.


2 cups white whole wheat flour
1 cup oats
1/3 cup peanut butter
1 1/2 cups hot water
Cookie cutters
1 egg
Pastry brush

Extra flour for rolling out dough

Little cookie cutters

Preheat oven to 350 degrees.

Mix dry ingredients together. Mix in Peanut Butter and hot water. If needed, add a little more flour to make dough workable.

Put dough on a floured surface, and knead.

Roll out to about 1/4" thickness and cut into desired shapes.

Whisk an egg in a small bowl, and use brush to apply to the top of the dog treats.

Shapes cut out, and egg applied to the tops.

After I ran out of room in the rolled out dough, instead of re-rolling it to make more cut-out shapes, I just rolled it into balls, using a teaspoon for the size, and then flattened them, like a peanut butter cookie.

Bake on a cookie sheet (no need to grease unless it isn't non-stick) for 25-30 minutes. Check towards the end of the time to make sure they are not starting to burn on the edges (photo to follow to show what happens when you forget to check).

Remove from oven and cool completely before storing in an airtight container.

The ones on the left were the result of me getting distracted and not hearing the timer going off, or to check on them before that.... Thankfully, Baxter still liked them.

The last batch...little peanut butter cookies for Baxter. : -)

Baxter patiently (okay, not really) waiting for a treat.

While he was eating the first one, I set the second one on the edge of the table out on the patio.

Didn't take him long to find it! Yummmmmm. : -)

 Baxter gave this recipe 2 Paws up (he would have used thumbs if he had any). I hope you'll give this recipe a try, and let me know what your four-legged child thinks of it! :-)
