Peanut Butter Oatmeal Dog Treats

I'm always posting tasty treats for us 2 legged creatures, but what about our 4 legged friends?  You know, those adorable, furry critters whose lives revolve around us.  Here's a snack my doggy loves.  Have you ever read the ingredient label on your dogs treats?  Pretty scary!  These are much less frightening.  These ingredients look much like a regular cookie.  In fact, the boy down the road asks for them (don't ask... it's a long story involving my daughter convincing her little friend they were regular cookies as a joke and then he liked them).  Make these for your favorite doggy today and enjoy :)

1 cup flour (whole wheat or all purpose)
3/4 cup oats
1/4 cup peanut butter
1/2 cup water
1/4 cup canola oil
2 TBSP honey
1 tsp baking powder

Preheat oven to 350.  Mix all dry ingredients in a bowl.  Add wet and stir until well combined.  Roll out on a floured surface to 1/4 inch thickness.  Using cookie cutters (or a I just cut into squared with my pizza cutter) cut out shapes and place on greased cookie sheet.  Bake for 18 to 20 minutes. If your doggy likes cookie-like treats pull them out of the oven now.  If your doggy likes super crunchy treats then shut the oven off and leave them in for 60 minutes.  Cool and store in an air tight container.
