Do you have a recipe for easy dog and/or cat treats you would like to share? I'm looking for something healthy, too.

Whole wheat flour, creamy peanut butter, vanilla, rolled oats, white lour, eggs, vegetable oil.

Yield: About 30, 3inch treats
I N G R E D I E N T S
1 1/2 cups water
1/2 cups safflower oil
2 medium eggs
3 tablespoons peanut butter (sugar free if possible)*
2 teaspoons vanilla
1 1/2 cups whole wheat flour
1 1/4 cups unbleached white flour
1/2 cups cornmeal
1/2 cups rolled oats

Additional flour for rolling

I N S T R U C T I O N S
Preheat oven to 400 F.

Mix water, oil, eggs, peanut butter, and vanilla with a wire whisk. Add flours, cornmeal, and oats. Combine with a mixer.

Take one-third of the dough and place on a floured surface. Flour top of dough. Gently knead, adding more flour as necessary to form a pliable dough (This will require
a substantial amount of flour). Roll out to 1/2 - 3/4 inch thickness and cut shapes using cookie cutters. Repeat until all dough is used.

Place on an ungreased baking sheet. Bake 400 F, 20-25 minutes, depending on thickness of biscuits . Leave in oven 20 minutes after turning oven off to crisp. Store in an airtight container.

The other thing about making your own treats though - is since they don't have preservatives - you need to keep them in an airtight container and I keep them in the refrigerator.... My treats don't last more then about 10 days - well I mean they get eaten = but I would make sure they do within a month?

My dog doesn't like peanut butter and so my treats are made with other ingredients. Here are cheesy sticks - he loves them - i don't know if cats can eat the? But my dog loves them!
2 1/2 cups flour (I use oat & rice - but you can use whole wheat instead)
1/2 c. oat bran
3/4 c. parmesan cheese
1 egg
1/2-2/3 cup water
I combine all of this, I start with 1/2 cup of water but add drops so the consistency is good... then I make logs out of them a dn put them on a baking sheet (ungreased) and bake at 350 degrees for about 18 minutes..... Really good and sometimes my family even eats them?

Homemade Dog Treat Recipe
Peanut Butter Puppy Poppers

2 cups whole-wheat flour
1 tbsp. baking powder
1 cup peanut butter (chunky or smooth)
1 cup milk
Preheat oven to 375'F. In a bowl, combine flour and baking powder. In another bowl, mix peanut butter and milk, then add to dry ingredients and mix well. Place dough on a lightly floured surface and knead. Roll dough to 1/4 inch thickness and use a cookie cutter to cut out shapes. Bake for 20 minutes on a greased baking sheet until lightly brown. Cool on a rack, then store in an airtight container. --- This is the original recipe, but I have found the cookies burn easily.

My wife has made dog biscuits with some recipes she found on the internet. She looks for one she likes and then adjusts it to her liking. There are also books that can be purchased with all kinds of recipes for dogs and horses. You might even see if your library has one you could borrow.
