Alex's Birthday!

Today, my chocolate lab, Alex, turned 4!! This recipe is for dog cookies. I don't recommend them for people. :)

PB Dog Treats
Makes about 24 small men

2 cups whole-wheat flour
3/4 cup peanut butter
1 banana, mashed
1/4 cup quick cooking oats
1/2 cup fat free milk
1/4 cup canola oil

Preheat the oven to 350 degrees. Lightly grease a baking sheet. Mix together the flour, peanut butter, banana, oats, milk and oil until evenly moist but not sticky. Knead until smooth.
Roll out the dough and cut into shapes with small gingerbread man cookie cutter (or your favorite cutters) and arrange on the prepared baking sheet. Bake until lightly brown, 12-15 minutes, or a little longer if your dog prefers a crunchy cookie. Cool completely. Store in airtight container or zipper plastic bag.
Cook's notes: The dough will not be smooth like bread dough, and it may be necessary to "patch" together portions of the dough as you knead it and roll it out.

Be devoted to one another in brotherly love. Honor one another above yourselves. Romans 12:9
