    1/2c all-purpose flour
    1/8c rice

    2 c all purpose or whole wheat flour

    1 c rolled oats

    1/3 c peanut butter

    1 1/4 c hot water

    additional flour for rolling


    Preheat oven to 350°. Mix together dry ingredients.

    Mix in the peanut butter and hot water. You may need to add more flour if the dough is too sticky.

    Knead dough well.

    Roll the dough into 1/4" thickness and cut into shapes with dog cookie cutters.

    OPTIONAL: Egg wash (one egg whisked with a fork and then brushed on with a pastry brush) on the treats before I baked them. It gives them a nice sheen once they're baked. Here's how they look before baking.

    Bake on a lightly greased cookie sheet for 40 minutes. Turn off the oven and let them cool overnight.

    If you and your dog can't wait that long, cool them completely on a wire rack before serving.

    Instead of cutting out more shapes with the left over peanut butter and oatmeal dough, I rolled it into balls. Then I made a cross hatch fork mark on the dog cookies. This is the same way you would do for human peanut butter cookies.

    After: The cookies get very hard, just the way dogs like them!

    Storing: This peanut butter dog biscuit recipe makes biscuits that will last in a sealed air tight container at room temperature for one week. You can store them in the refrigerator for 3 weeks and in the freezer for up to 6 months.

    Frozen Fruit Treats

    Lots of Fruit
    Fruit Juice
    Low-fat Yogurt

    Place any fruit you favor in a blender. Some great ones are strawberries, cantaloupe, watermelons, apples, peaches, or bananas. Add some unsweetened juice (your choice - pineapple is good). Add a little low-fat yogurt for thickening, honey for sweetening, and 1/2 tsp. cinnamon. Puree until well blended and smooth. Freeze in little cups or ice cube trays and serve as "popsicles".

    Loosey-Goosey Chicken Fix

    3 boneless, skinless chicken breasts
    1 cup cooked plain white rice
    1 cup cooked plain carrots
    1 cup non- or low-fat cottage cheese

    For dogs that have had a bit too much 'stuff' that they're a little bit 'loose.' (Get it?)
    Boil chicken breasts in a small amount of water until done; chop.
    Cook carrots in a small amount of water until tender but not mushy.
    Mix both with the rice and cottage cheese. You may want to add some broth from the meat or carrots if it seems too dry.
    A nice plain meal to get your baby 'firmed up.' Keep any leftovers in the fridge.

    Optional flavorings (add 1 if desired): 1/4 cup mashed banana; 1/4 cup mashed or chopped plain potatoes; 1/4 cup low-fat cheddar cheese.

    Remember to go easy since you're trying to get their little tummies back to normal!

    Just wondering, since I am not a baker, is it possible to swap out the grain flour for chickpea flour? Unfortunately, Valco's stomach does not appreciate grains.

    Pumpkin Cheese Cups

    Dog Food Recipes: Pumpkin Cheese Cups

    Dog-safe “mutt cupsâ€

    By: Barbara Burg

    Beyond biscuits—here’s a homemade nutritious treat perfect for those festive occasions.

    Yield: About 24 mini-mutt cups and 24 garnish cookies

    For the Cups
    2 1/2 cups (310 g) whole wheat flour
    1/2 cup (40 g) whole rolled oats
    1 egg, slightly beaten
    1 cup (240 ml) water
    1/2 cup (130 g) all-natural crunchy peanut butter

    For the Filling
    1/2 cup (100 g) pur*ed pumpkin
    16 ounces (450 g) cream cheese, softened to room temperature

    For the Cups
    Preheat oven to 350°F (180°C).
    Combine wheat flour and oats in a large bowl. Add egg, water and peanut butter and mix well.
    On a lightly floured surface, knead the dough and roll out to 1/8" (0.3 cm) thickness.
    Cut out twenty-four 2" (5 cm) circles. Use remaining dough to cut out 24 small garnish cookies (Here’s an idea: Cut the cookies into your dog’s favorite shapes.)
    Spray a mini-muffin pan with oil and lightly dust with flour. Lay circles in the mini-muffin cups and press.
    Bake 30 minutes or until golden brown. Cool enough to handle, remove from pan, then let cool completely.
    Store in sealed container until ready to fill with cheese mixture.

    For the Filling
    With a hand mixer, mix pumpkin and cream cheese together until well blended.
    Place cream cheese mixture into a pastry bag with a large-tip opening; you can also use a plastic sandwich bag—snip corner of sandwich baggie to create a 1/2" (1.3 cm) opening.
    Gently squeeze filling into cookie cups. Garnish with a small cookie.
