I'll admit it, Valentina has us completely wrapped around her paw. She simply adores these tiny treats and the DH loves to give them to her for that reason. I'm happy too because I know that they aren't full of chemicals and preservatives and I don't mind slipping her one or two myself although we all know thats it's Dads job! I'm guessing at the yield because I've never really counted them. You can make bigger bites of you have a bigger "kid".
- 3⁄4 cup flour
- 1 egg
- 1 tablespoon honey
- 1 teaspoon peanut butter
- 1⁄4 cup shortening
- 1 teaspoon baking soda
- 1⁄4 cup rolled oats
- 1⁄2 teaspoon vanilla
- Heat honey and peanut butter in microwave until peanut butter is melted (about 20 seconds).
- Add remaining ingredients and mix well.
- Drop by 1/2 teaspoonful onto cookie sheet.
- Bake at 350 F for 8 to 10 minutes.
Toby, the dog who embraces being an omnivore and is my kitchen helper, was immediately intrigued at the part when the peanut butter and honey were microwaved. He's had some of the dough and some of the cookies. Even Trixie, our confirmed carnivore, likes them. These are pretty rolled after being dropped. The dough is really soft, so I chilled the dough in the freezer while the first pan baked. I got two pans of about 60 cookies total. Thanks for posting.
My wonderful "children" loved these little treats! I told them I was making the treats for them, and they sat right next to the oven waiting on them. Of course, they sit in the kitchen anytime I cook, so maybe I am imaging that they "knew" they were for them! They smelled wonderful while cooking, unlike some other dog treats I have made. Easy to make, and I will make them again. My two dogs loved them!! I made this just because I thought they sounded great, not for tag or anything! But I did find them because of a tag game! Thank you so much for posting your recipe.
These were so easy to get together and my two pups just loved them!!! I made mine a little bigger so it only made 22 treats. Thanks for posting a healthy dog treat recipe. Made for Everyday is a Holiday tag.
