Peanut Butter Doggie Snacks

Timmy and I do not have children, nor do we want children. They are fine to wave to from a far distance, but up close scare the bejesus out of us. Instead we have dogs and cats; wonderful, adorable dogs and cats. As any great pet owner would do, we spoil our furry children. Our chihuahua Ellie Mae owns a wide assortment of dresses and shirts (yes, we are those kind of dog owners) and our precious dog Adelaide has enough squeaky balls to fill one of those ball prisons people lock their children in at Chuck-E-Cheese. It is their sweet demeanor and full adoration they give us that prompts Tim and I to keep on spoiling them up until their tail-wagging last days. This includes baking them delicious dog biscuits and cakes. Since it is Christmas, I have baked some goodies for the entire family's doggie children. We will have some fat, happy and sleepy pups in our home tonight.

From our kids to yours...

Peanut Butter Dog Biscuits

2 cups whole wheat flour
1/2 cup cornmeal
1/4 cup ground flax meal
1/2 cup unsalted, creamy peanut butter
1 cup non-dairy milk
1 T. molasses

Pre-heat oven to 350
Mix whole wheat flour, cornmeal and flax until just combined. Add peanut butter, molasses and non-dairy milk to flour mixture until a thick dough forms. Roll out onto a floured surface then cut out fun doggie shapes. Bake 20 minutes.

Store in an air-tight container, will keep for a little over a week.
