Looks can be deceiving…
These are cookies I made for my dogs, Duchess and Buddy (we never say Buddy’s name first, and I don’t know why?). I used a recipe from The Dog Food Dude although he suggests you roll them out and cut them into squares with a pizza cutter. I didn’t want to take on the extra work, so I just scoped them into balls using a melon ball utensil. Then I smashed them flat with a coffee cup (just like my mom or grandma showed me years ago).
Be sure to use natural peanut butter since many other peanut butters have added sugar and salt. You can use whatever stock you have on hand. I used a homemade chicken stock that I had in the fridge. I would post a picture of my dogs with the cookies, but I doubt they would be able to keep from eating them long enough for me to take it!
Peanut Butter Dog Cookies
1/2 cup natural peanut butter
3/4 cup chicken stock
2 cups whole wheat flour
1 tsp cinnamon
1 tsp baking powder
Put peanut butter and stock into a microwave safe bowl and cook on high about a minute, until peanut butter melts and you can mix the two ingredients together well. Add flour, cinnamon and baking powder and stir into a dough ball. (I didn’t use my stand mixer, but I wished that I had.) You can add in a little water, as needed.
Scoop into cookies and put on a baking sheet. Bake in 350 degree oven for 30 minutes. I plan to freeze them to keep on hand for treats when my dogs are being good.
