Peanut Butter Dog Bone Treats

Yes, you read that right. Rhett is now so spoiled that we make him special treats and I'm posting the recipes on my blog. For those out there that aren't dog lovers, I'm sorry. For those out there that are dog lovers ... I'm really not sorry, and you're welcome.

2 cups whole wheat flour
1/2 cup oats
1 tablespoon baking powder
1 cup low sodium chicken broth
1 cup room temperature creamy peanut butter
1/4 cup grated Parmesan

Be careful with the peanut butter, there's a lot of changes being made to peanut butter that's making it not safe for pets. Check yours to make sure that it doesn't include Xylitol.

Preheat your oven to 375. Combine the flour, oats and baking powder, and then stir in the broth and peanut butter until it turns into a dough.

Lightly flour your work surface and knead the dough for 30 seconds until it's smooth. Roll the dough out till it's about 1/2 inch thick, and cut your cookies out.

Place the bones onto a baking sheet with cooking spray or parchment paper, and sprinkle the Parmesan on top.

Bake for 20 minutes or until light brown. Transfer to a wire rack so they can cool off, and then make your little guy or girl love you even more.
