After a fresh early morning stroll I decided to bake the naughty pup some treats.
This recipe calls for only 5 ingredients and chances are they're already in your pantry.
1 C nutty wheat flour (or whole wheat flour),
1 and 1/2 t baking powder,
1/2 C peanut butter,
2 T honey,
1/2 C hot water.
Mix the flour and baking powder.
In a separate bowl mix the peanut butter, honey and water until smooth.
Gradually add the wet ingredients to the dry and mix into a dough.
On a floured bread board, roll out your dough and cut into shapes.
Pop into the oven at 190˚C for about 20 minutes.
Here comes trouble
I used my 'already been chewed' cookie shapes - which I thought were appropriate since Bails would like to claim that he's the one who did the chewing.
Those smelt delicious while baking
The quality control inspector helps himself:
They get the paws up sign of approval.
These were so easy to throw together and its good to know what ingredients are going into Bailey's treats since terms such as 'meat and animal derivatives' used to describe most store bought treats do not inspire much confidence in their origin.
Realistically this is a dog who will happily scavenge from rubbish bags and bring home rotting things he finds in the fields so I'm not trying to be too precious, but I like to have some control over the food he eats.
And he is certainly a willing recipient!
