Baking dog treats
Pre-heat oven and mix
Pre-heat the oven to 180oC.
Mix all ingredients in a bowl until it forms a dough (remember to check that your peanut butter does not contain xylitol as it is harmful to dogs).
Roll and cut
Dust your work surface with flour and roll out the dough until it is 0.6cm (1/4 inch) thick.
Cut out biscuits using a cookie cutter (or cut into strips) and place on an ungreased baking tray.

Bake your biscuits for 18 minutes or until golden brown.
Leave the biscuits to cool down.
Only give them one treat per day to help them stay a healthy weight.
