peanut butter oatmeal dog cookies

Thursday, May 22, 2014

Also called-- whatever is in your pantry that seems dog edible.

Another quirk of mine, I sometimes get strange amounts of energy late in the evening, I don't know where it comes from but I'm either up and about: blogging, cleaning, annoying Chris... or on the couch drooling by 8 o'clock.  There's just no middle ground for me.

So on a particular Thursday evening when I was filled to capacity with said crazy energy [also patiently awaiting my husband to arrive home from a late night flight] I decided it was the perfect time to make homemade dog treats!  Yeah I know, weird.

I found this super easy recipe and just adapted it to what I had in my pantry.  No whole wheat flour but I had whole wheat pancake mix, kinda the same thing right?  All the other ingredients[coconut oil, milk, peanut butter] I had on hand but added in a few handfuls of oats, just because! & Lucy didn't seem to mind.

I don't have a cute bone shaped cookie cutter, but am on the hunt for one! so for now Lucy was fine with the traditional peanut butter criss-cross shaped cookies.  Baked in a 350 degree oven for 10 min or so & you have yourself a peanut buttery smelling kitchen & homemade dog cookies!

And just in case you were worried, she loved them. duh.

Oh & we call dog treats "cookies" in our house, but feel free to adapt to your own personal style.
