Homemade Healthy Doggy Treats-If you have a dog I’ll bet it’s a very special dog. Maybe,,no,no,, absolutely, the best dog in the world. Right? Well your super special dog deserves some super special treats. I found this recipe on a site called “The Cookie Rookie”. Becky Hardin does a great job on her really good web site. Thank you Becky!
This is our super special pup, well, old gentleman doggy, Bubba.
We were giving him “Beggin Strips” for reward and training treats. He started to show blood in his urine. The vet said it could be a stone or a tumor and put Bubba on some meds. I googled the hell out of all the possible causes. One was the preservative that a lot of the dog treat manufacturers add to give them longer shelf life. So I started making our own healthy treats for Bubba. He REALLY likes them and his urinary tract problem is starting to go away.
Snuggling our great granddaughter Ava.

Okay, now for the treats. They have peanut butter and honey in them so your super special pup will love them. Bubba scarfs them right up.
Set your oven at 350°F/175°C. Put all of the ingredients except the water in a bowl and mix them all together.You could use a countertop mixer with a dough paddle, a food processor or just a large cooks spoon. Add the water a little bit at a time until you have a ball of dough.
Line a cookie sheet with parchment paper or aluminum foil and lightly flour it.
Put the ball of dough in the pan and pat it down flat. Then with a rolling pin roll it out to about 3/8″ thick.
With a pizza wheel or just a butter knife or even cookie cutters cut up the dough into the size that you want.
Here they are ready for the oven.
Put them in the oven and bake ’em for about a half hour or until they are as golden brown and as crunchy as your puppy might like them.
Let them sit and cool off then break them up and give the first one of the Homemade Healthy Doggy Treats to your to your super special pup!
Keep them in the fridge in a sealed container or bag.
If your dog is allergic to wheat flour, rice flour will work just fine. Just add an additional 1/2 teaspoon of baking powder to the recipe.
