3-4T Flax Seed (optional)

3 eggs

Here's another peanut butter cookie recipe. Just about every dog I've given these to has loved them. My sister calls them canine crack because her dogs do just about anything for one. I modified the original recipe (substitued out the oil and corn meal) to make it a little healthier but the dogs still love them. These are cute cut into shapes with cookie cutters, but you could just form them into basic bars.

Peanut Butter Cookies

1 1/2 cups of a rich vegetable or meat broth
1/2 cup applesauce
2 eggs
2 teaspoons vanilla extract
1/3 cup peanut butter (plain or crunchy)
3 1/4 cups whole wheat flour
1 cup brown rice flour
3/4 cup rolled oats

1.Preheat oven to 400 degrees F.
2. Mix liquid ingredients together well.
3. Combine the dry ingredients in a large bowl.
4.Pour the wet mixture over the dry ingredients and mix until smooth.
5.Form into a ball on floured surface and roll out to ½ inch thick.
6. Cut into desired shapes.
7.Place on ungreased cookie sheet and bake for 20 minutes.
8. Turn off oven and leave the cookies in the oven for 1 hour to dry and harden.

NOTE: If making a double batch (great for sharing) or if all the cookies won't fit in the oven at one time, you can bake them in batches and then place all the cookies back in the oven to harden as the oven cools. This is an important step as any moisture can cause the cookie to mold (no preservatives and all that).
I found this at the end of a story about dogs; Laurien Berenson, _Hush Puppy _ Made them Sunday and Murphy will come running from chasing a bird to get one!!! Could this be the magic 'Come" treat???? I can only hope.

Bananna Oatmeal Doggie Cookies

Homemade, no preservatives, no additives, wheat free.

* 6 cups old fashioned oatmeal (do not use quick oats, ie. chopped up oats)
* 3 cups smashed ripe banannas
* 1/2 cup applesauce (use the kind with no preservatives)

Mix together and form into heaping teaspoon, soupspoon, or tablespoon size depending on the size of your dog or dog trainer, and place them on either a baking stone or a greased cookie sheet. Bake in a 350 degree oven until hard and golden brown. Put them on a cooling rack, and when cool, keep them in the refrigerator since these will get moldy if not refrigerated. They can be stored in the freezer, and thawed for use without getting mushy.

Bread Machine Liver Treats

We use these during training as a reward and incentive for the dog. In Ohio these need no refrigeration if used within a few weeks. We have frozen them as well, and they work just fine when thawed, not getting mushy at all.

* 3/4 cup pureed liver (may be chicken livers, beef livers, lamb livers, or pork livers)
* 1/4 cup milk
* 3 Table spoons oil (we prefer olive or canola)
* 1 egg
* 1 cup whole wheat flower
* 1 cup all purpose flower
* 1/3 cup bran
* 1/3 cup GrapeNuts cereal
* 1/4 tsp to 1 tsp garlic (as much garlic as your dog likes and you can stand)
* 1 1/2 tsp yeast

Place ingredients in bread pan according to you bread machine's manufacturer's directions and select "Dough" cycle. When the cycle is done, remove the dough to a lightly flowered counter top using whole wheat flower (preferrably). Rol out with a rolling pin until the dough is about 1/4 inch thick. Cut into 1 inch strips and roll again. Cut into small bite-size pieces, depending on the bite of your dog. Place the pieces on a baking stone or lightly greased cookie sheet. Bake at 325 degrees until they are hard and crunchy (approximately 20 minutes, depending on the size of the pieces). Store in a sealed container or zip locked bag. You can also roll the dough out on a floured surface about 1/4 inch thick and cut with your favorite doggie cookie cutter and bake until hard, about 25 to 30 minutes. Store in sealed container.
