Homemade Peanut Butter Dog Treats

Peanut butter that doesn't stick on roof of the mouth.
One of the funniest things is watching a dog that has peanut butter on the roof of its mouth. Now Hayden is much to danty of a dog for that too happen too. He drinks water from the corner of the bowl, so he doesn't slop it all over when finished. He savors the licks of peanut butter of the beaters when I made these treats. (Gross yes, dishwasher after) Even though Hayden prances, he is still a rough and tumble dog. He loves to chase ANYTHING that runs from him, you know-rabbits, birds, lizards (in AZ), cows, deer, and even a moose. So these treats are good for dogs in your purse or the dogs in the field.

Peanut Butter Doggie Treats
2 cups whole wheat flour                            
1 Tablespoon baking powder
1 cup peanut butter (Chunky or smooth)
1 cup milk (doesn't matter the %)
1 Tablespoon honey
2 Tablespoons peanuts, smashed (if using smooth pb and want a bit of a crunch)

Preheat oven to 375 degrees F.
In a large bowl, mix peanut butter, milk, and honey until well combined. Add in peanuts if using. Add in flour and baking powder, mix well.
Lightly flour a surface, place dough down on it and knead.
Roll dough to 1/4 inch thickness. Use a cookie cutter (doesn't always have to be a dog bone) to cut out shapes. Place on a greased cookie sheet-or with a slip-mat, or parchment paper. They don't spread, so it is okay t place them close together but give them a bit of breathing space.
Bake for 15 minutes, until lightly browned.
Cool completely on a rack before giving to woofer, or storing in an airtight container.
