Treats For Your Best Friend

Making treats for your dog is very simple and inexpensive. Why not make some tasty treats for your dog the next time you throw some cookies or a cake in the oven for yourself. I would like to give you a couple of easy recipes for you to make some good and healthy treats for your "best friend". These can be for any size dog, as you can make them as large or small as you want them to be.

Cheesy Hound Rounds

1/2 C. low fat cheddar cheese, shredded
1/2 C. low fat cottage cheese
2 1/2 T. vegetable oil
2 C. flour
3/4 C. peanuts, chopped
1/4 C. water

Mix the first five ingredients, add water and mix well. Break off golf ball size pieces and flatten into rounds. Bake on a sprayed cookie sheet. Bake in a 350 degree oven for 40 minutes. If you would like to make smaller treats, adjust the cooking time.  The treats should be very hard when finished.

Banana Mutt Cookies

1 1/2 C. ripe bananas, mashed
1/2 t. vanilla
3 C. oats
1/2 C. peanuts, chopped
1/4 C. applesauce

Mix all ingredients thoroughly. Drop spoonfuls on an ungreased baking sheet. Flatten with a fork. Bake for 15 minutes at 350 degrees.

Your pet is sure to love these tasty treats and you will know that the treats you are feeding him or her are healthy.
