Peanut Butter Dog Treats

Your dog or friend's dog will go nuts over these home made biscuits.  Why not make a double batch, have your kids pitch in then package up and give to neighbors or local animal shelters -- tails will be a waggin!

Peanut Butter Dog Treats
Adapted from Giada De Laurentiis recipe

            vegetable oil cooking spray
2          cups whole wheat flour, plus more for dusting
1/2       cup old fashioned oats
1          tablespoon baking powder
1          cup low sodium vegetable broth
1          cup creamy peanut butter, at room temperature
1/4       cup soy parmesan (optional) for dusting

Place an oven rack in the center of the oven and preheat to 375 degrees.  Spray a heavy baking sheet with vegetable oil cooking spray or line with baking mat.  Set aside.

In a large bowl, combine the flour, oats and baking powder.  Stir in the broth and peanut butter until mixture forms a crumbly dough.  Press the dough together to form a ball.

On a lightly floured work surface, knead the dough for 30 second until smooth.  Roll ou the dough into a 10-inch circle, about 1/2-inch thick.  Using fun cookie cutters, cut out cookies and place on the prepared baking sheet (keep using scraps to re-roll)
Sprinkle with soy Parmesan.  Bake until light golden, 20 minutes.  Transfer to a wire rack and cool completely. Store in an airtight container for up to 1 week.
