5 Dog Treat Recipes That Kids Can Make

Pea-Nutty Nibbles

Nothing says, "You've been a good dog" more than the scrumptious taste of peanut butter treats. Make a batch of pea-nutty nibbles for your pet and he's sure to reward you with a nice long snooze at your feet.

To make these treats, start by mixing 2 cups of whole wheat flour with a half-cup cup of oatmeal and 2 teaspoons of cinnamon. Next, combine a half-cup of creamy peanut butter, a half-cup of water and a half-cup of chicken broth, and then microwave it for 15 to 30 seconds – just until it forms a smooth liquid. Add the mixture to your dry ingredients and stir until dough forms.

Drop the dough into small rounds and have your kids use their thumbs to press a well into each cookie as they flatten it. Place the pea-nutty nibbles on a cookie sheet that's been lightly coated with a non-stick spray. Bake at 325 degrees (160 degrees Celsius) for 15 minutes and allow the treats to cool in the oven. Let your kids fill the cookie wells with sugar-free jelly or jam and then feed them to your dog. He'll be the happiest hound on the block.
