Apple and Peanut Butter Dog Cookie Treat Recipe | Tasty Tuesday

As part of Jeffie's birthday celebration last week, we tried a new dog cookie recipe.  To say it was a hit is putting it mildly.

All of our dogs love peanut butter, especially Jeffie.  Since every dog cake recipe we looked at included things he really doesn't like (bananas, carrots and more - he's very picky) this seemed perfect.

This is a very easy recipe and I know we'll be making it again.  This time around we had a lot of fun with our cookie cutters to make them festive for our birthday boy.

Apple and Peanut Butter Dog Treats
4 cups whole wheat flour
3/4 cup quick cooking oats
1/4 cup wheat germ
1/2 cup all natural unsweetened applesauce
1/2 cup all natural peanut butter (no sugar or salt added)
1 1/2 cups water
2 teaspoons pure vanilla extract
1 egg
  1. Preheat oven to 350 degrees.
  2. Combine all ingredients and mix well.
  3. Knead dough on a floured surface until it is firm.
  4. Roll dough to 1/4" thickness.  Cut with cookie cutters.
  5. Bake for 45 minutes.  Turn off the heat and let cookies stand in the oven until hard (about 1-2 hours) 
Lip smackin' good!
