|Chance the Magnificent!|
This is a recipe given to me by my sister. Her cocker spaniel Chance just loves them, so I've named them after him. Apparently, he thinks he owns them. The best thing about this recipe is that it is quick and easy.
1/4 cup peanut butter (I use creamy, natural peanut butter)
1 tablespoon vegetable oil (invariably I add up to another tablespoon)
1 cup water
2.25 cups whole wheat flour
1 cup old-fashion oatmeal
Directions:Mix. Roll to 1/4" and cut into squares or shapes. Bake at 375F for 35 minutes.
I usually don't measure the peanut butter. I just use a very large scoop of it. I sometimes have to add more water to get the dough to tighten up. I use a bench knife to cut them into bit-sized squares, although my sister uses a dog-bone cookie cutter. I prefer giving the dog smaller treats. But whatever you do, keep an eye on these in the oven, because if your dough is thin, they can burn around the edges if you don't watch them.
Dogs love them. Scout can't wait for them to cool before he's begging for a few.
