homemade dog treats

We've been pretty busy lately and along with the craziness of life Dan has also just started his spring semester back at school.   This weekend we made no plans and were able to catch up on some projects, do our excessive amounts of laundry, and I got my cook on.  Along with a whole bunch of healthy clean eating recipes {I'll share soon!}, I also baked Millie some healthy dog treats.

What you need:

2 1/4 cups of whole wheat flour
1 cup of all natural peanut butter
1/2 cup of 100% pure pumpkin
2 farm fresh eggs
1 cup low-fat milk

Preheat your oven to 375 degrees.   Mix together the peanut butter, pumpkin, eggs, and milk.  Slowly stir in the flour.  Once mixed well place the dough on a floured surface.  Roll out dough until 1/4" thick.  You can use a cookie cutter to cut out shapes or simply roll dough into balls and flatten {like the photo above}.  Place your dog treats on a greased cookie sheet and bake for 20 minutes or until lightly brown.  Let treats cool and place in an airtight container.

Millie was doing puppy dance moves for these all day.

And her newest move?  Well crawling under the bed and taking a nap...usually with the cats.
