Lazy girl dog treats

You know what screams LOOK AT ME, I'M LITTLE MISS DOMESTICATED?
Homemade dog treats.
C'mon, your first thought is who has time to do that.

Me. That's who!

A few weekends ago my mom and I decided we were tired of buying the ridiculously priced dog treats from the store & took it upon ourselves to make our own. The thing is, they're super simple. We even got all cutesy and used a heart shaped cookie cutter since it was lovey-dovey February



Lazy Girl Dog Treats

Ingredients:

1 1/2 cups whole wheat flour
1 1/2 cups white flour
1/2 cup peanut butter
1 cup water
2 tablespoons oil

Directions
Preheat the oven to 350 F. Combine oil, peanut butter and water. Add flour, one cup at a time, forming a dough. Knead dough into firm ball and roll to 1/4 inch thickness. (We used mom's Kitchenaid, with the dough hook)

Use a cookie cutter to cut out shapes, or simply cut into squares/rectangles. Place on an ungreased cookie sheet. Bake at 350 F for 20 minutes. Makes 2 1/2 dozen cookies.

These got the tail-wag of approval from Russell, Spencer, Bella, Abby and Darby (hey, we like to share!)

That does sound simple! Does it make a big batch? I wonder how long they last for? I also wonder if I could switch the peanut butter for cheesewhiz! lol my dogs are getting sick of peanut butter treats!

LOVE this. I like that you can actually tell what you're giving your dog (mine's high-allergy so we have to be careful.)

Thank you for the recipe! Very easy and simple to make which is great for me since this is the first time I have made dog treats. My foster dogs love them, and I will be making treats for them instead of buying some from now on.

My little Shih Tsu is a bit of little piggy. I might make bars and then break them up. Great recipe and she loves peanut butter!
