Peanut Butter Dog Treats for All the Good Dogs on Your List

Doesn't this good girl deserve a nice holiday treat?  Yes. Oh yes she does!

I know that Christmas is just a few days away and chances are you have better things to do with your time right now than bake some peanut butter dog biscuits. Ah, but hear me out!  Dogs go crazy for these peanut butter treats and they're very (V-E-R-Y) easy to make! Plus they're for dogs, who don't really care what day it is and will appreciate getting them on December 29 or January 23, or whenever you get around to making them.

2 cups whole wheat flour
1/2 cup old fashioned rolled oats
1 tablespoon baking powder
1 cup chicken or beef broth (or water)
1 tablespoon honey
1 cup creamy peanut butter
Grated Parmesan cheese (optional, but nice!)

Preheat oven to 375.  Line a cookie sheet with parchment paper.  Whisk flour, oats and baking powder together. Stir honey into broth until dissolved.  Add broth and peanut butter to flour mixture and mix until well-combined.  Turn out on to a floured board or counter and knead for half a minute or so.  Pat or roll dough to 1/2 inch thickness.  Cut with your favorite shapes and place on cookie sheet.  Sprinkle with cheese if using.  Bake for 20 minutes.  Flip the biscuits over and bake for another 20 minutes until well browned on both sides.  Turn the oven off and let them sit in the oven until cool so that they turn nice and crunchy.

Happy holidays to our dog friends and all the people who love them!  From Zorra and Jennie
