Recipe by Taylor Mooney

Ingredients 

2 1/4 cup whole wheat flour

1 1/2 tsp baking powder

1/3 cup peanut butter

1 cup warm water

1 flax egg (1 tsp ground flax seed + 3 tsp water; beat until egg-like)*

Instructions 

Preheat oven to 375 degrees F (190 C)

Line cookie sheet with parchment paper or foil

Combine whole wheat flour and baking powder

Add in warm water, flax egg, and peanut butter

Mix until ingredients are evenly distributed

Place dough on counter and roll dough out with a rolling pin

Cut dough out with cookie cutters, I used a dog bone shape

Place on your cookie sheet and bake until lightly browned

This recipe makes about 30 medium sized treats and they only last for about 5 days because there are no preservatives so freeze the ones that won’t be eaten immediately!

*flax seed is great for dogs because it is a fantastic source of omega-3 fatty acids which are great for their coats and they are a good source of fiber
