being newlyweds, we knew we were going to have to be really careful with our money, so we cut our spending where we could. we finally realized when we were giving our dog ice cubes as treats, maybe we needed to loosen up some! so, feeling sorry for toaster (yes, TOASTER- like toaster oven, toaster strudel, hey could you put my bagel in the toaster) i decided to make him some homemade treats. they are yummy but more importantly affordable, and he loves them! here’s how:
2 cups whole wheat flour
1 tb baking powder
1/2 cup molasses
1 cup peanut butter
1 cup milk
mix all the ingredients in a bowl until all the batter is smooth. place on a lightly floured surface and roll out to about 1/4″ thick. use any shape cookie cutters you like to cut them out, then place them on a lightly greased baking pan. bake at 375 for 15-20 minutes and you’re done!
i make them in bulk and freeze the extras so refills are easy. also, you can leave the molasses out if you don’t have any. all natural and inexpensive treats- sure does beat those ice cubes!
