I mentioned in my previous pupcake post that I make all our treats for the bb's. Peanut butter nom noms (aka peanut butter terrifics) are the staple treat I make for them. Its super simple to make and they love the peanut butter. Here is the recipe (c/o "The Healthy Dog Cookbook, by Jonna Anne with Mary Straus) and a few pictures:
Prep time: 10 min, makes about 24 treats
1/2 cup water 3 tbsp peanut butter (organic, no salt) 1 1/4 cups whole wheat flour (brown) or brown rice flour
ZuZu and Hampton are always on their best behavior when I bake cookies for them. And, some most times they get to lick leftover peanut butter off the measuring spoon. Hampton got some on his nose. I thought he might go crazy not being able to get it off but he did after about a minute.
1. Preheat oven to 350F 2. Mix all the ingredients together 3. Cut into desired shapes
I like to use heart, butterfly and tulip cookie cutters:
4. Bake for 30 min or until lightly browned and crisp:
ZuZu and Hampton could smell the cookies baking from the backyard. Here they are peaking into the kitchen window. "Are they ready yet? Are they ready yet?!"
The cookies should keep 2-3 weeks in an airtight container...
but won't keep as long if the bb's have it their way! :)
*update* I started using Brown Rice Flour instead of Brown Whole Wheat Flour (pictured). The cookies aren't as thick nor do they brown as nicely but felt the brown rice flour might be a bit better for the bbs. They don't notice a difference that's for sure! :)
