I was in a baking mood on Sunday. It was raining, dreary and I was trying to waste some time before going to Ms. Kandace’s to make gingerbread houses with her and Beka. Huck had been lacking in his treat dish, so I figured while I had an hour to kill – I could make him some treats.
So if you have a pupper in your life, feel free to make them a few of these. They won’t be able to turn them down.
For Your Grocery List:
~ 1/3 cup smooth peanut butter
~ 2 1/2 cups whole wheat flour
~ 1 Tablespoon Veggie Oil
~ 1 c. oatmeal (1 plain and one Banana Bread)
~ 1 cup water.
Mix you water, oil and peanut butter together to make a gross looking brown sludge.
You want to make sure that all of these are properly mixed so that they are evenly distributed in the tough dough.
Slowly add flour, one cup at a time – mixing throughly in between the additions. This will start to get really tough to mix by hand, but stick with it.
When all the flour is mixed, knead in the oatmeal.
If you don’t have banana oatmeal, don’t fret. Mash up 1/2 cup of banana and add in.
When all of the oats are mixed in and not falling out of the dough, you’re ready to roll and cut it out to bake.
Roll out until they are about 1/4-1/3″ thick. Bake at 375 for about 25-30 minutes. Since every oven is different, just make sure you check them and don’t completely burn ’em.
Let them cool and toss one your pupper’s way. They will thank you.
