There isn't clear advice about whether honey is safe for puppies, so it's probably wise not to give a puppy pure honey, at least for the first six months. Since these treats are baked, that should kill any botulism spores that would cause troubles.
Zorra's Favorite Peanut Butter Oatmeal Honey Training Treats
1 cup whole wheat flour
1 cup oatmeal
2 tablespoons honey
1/2 cup peanut butter
Preheat oven to 350 degrees. Whirl all in a food processor until blended then add water--a few tablespoons at a time--just until it holds together. Roll out on a well-floured board and cut into desired shapes. Bake for 15 minutes then flip and bake for another 15 minutes. Cool thoroughly.
Place on an ungreased cookie sheet, spreading out so that they don't touch and bake at 300 degrees for 30 minutes, stirring after about 15 minutes of baking. Repeat with other half of dough. They are a little chewy (which works well for training). If you'd like a crunchier dog biscuit, then turn off the oven after 30 minutes and leave them in for 3-5 hours.
Let them cool then test them out!
