Homemade dog treats - and a happy Lenny

If you follow me on facebook, you already know how much I've appreciated all of your kind words, thoughts and prayers. You really don't know how much it means to me.

(And if you have no idea what I'm talking about, you can click here for the story)

I've been in a bit of a susie-homemaker mode here lately, so I have lots of tutorials and fun recipes to share with you! Here's a fun one for your furry friend!

Quick & easy.
My two favorites when doing...well, anything!
These homemade doggy treats definitely fall into that category!

The real reason I wanted to make these treats is because I got a suuuuuper adorable alligator cookie cutter. I desperately wanted to make sugar cookies, but knew I'd end up consuming far too many...I have good foresight like that.

So I resorted to making doggy cookies instead, and I wasn't even tempted to taste the batter.
Okay, I did take a small taste - I'm a sucker for peanut butter...what can I say?!

Though I didn't tase the finished product, the batter was pretty good.
Your pooch will thank you for making them.
And if nothing else, it'll give you a good excuse to bust out your most festive cookie cutters.

Let's get started.

1 banana
1 cup peanut butter
1 cup milk
1 tablespoon baking powder
2 cups whole wheat flour

First, place banana (I gave mine a little pre-mash) and peanut butter into mixing bowl.

Next, add in milk.

Give it a mix.
Add in baking powder and whole wheat flour (only 1/2 cup or so at a time) until a dough forms.

Flour your work surface (again, with wheat flour), roll out and cut into shapes!

Bake at 375 for about 12 minutes!
Your 4 legged friend will enjoy :)

We also packaged some up for one of Lenny's friends...he likes to share :)

These definitely got the Lenny stamp of approval.
