Mix whole wheat flour and baking soda in medium bowl. In another bowl, mix peanut butter and milk. Combine mixtures until well blended. Knead until smooth and roll out into 1/4 thickness. Cut with cookie cutters.

Bake at 375 for 15-20 mins. Remove and cool.

Baked 'em yesterday but used peanut butter and honey combo. It helps if you add a little extra milk as you go because the dough tends to dry out and crumbles as you roll it. I used a cutter in the shape of a medium size doggie bone and it made about 45 to 50 treats. Smell and taste great!

At the local Kroger I paid: 5lb. bag of whole wheat flour-$1.99, 1 qt. of skim milk-$1.49, 18oz.jar of roasted peanut butter with honey-2/$3.00, and 10oz.tin of baking powder-.89. There was enough milk, flour and baking powder to make several more batches. You'll need to buy more peanut butter to stretch the recipe. What a bargain!

just a note, watch yourselves if you have a dog that has food allergies. its best to avoid dairy, corn, and wheat if you do. there are many substitues you can use though!

The treats will be soft unless the moisture is baked out of them (to deplete moisture levels and create treats that will last up to 6 mths, bake at appropriate time and temp, and then bake for another 4-7 hrs @ 170 degrees). The recipes that I gave will all be moist treats- think chewy chips ahoy rather than the traditional chip ahoy :)

:pright on! Thank you so much for the info! I plan to make a couple 'soft batches to give to my clients who have old dogs with bad teeth... :) What can a person use to substitute for cornmeal? Does anyone know if it is ok for a dog to eat dried cranberries? I'm thinking of putting them into the treats.;)
