Here’s what you’ll need for the canine version of this recipe:
1 cup whole wheat flour
1 cup all purpose flour
½ tsp salt
¾ cup creamy peanut butter
½ cup mashed banana, cooked and mashed sweet potato or solid packed canned pumpkin
½ cup nondairy milk or water
¼ cup vegetable (such as canola) oil
Preheat your oven to 350 degrees. Lightly grease two cookie sheets or line them with a Silpat or parchment paper and set aside.
In a food processor, combine all the ingredients and process until mixed well. Note that if you’re like me, and don’t have a food processor, old fashioned elbow grease and a wooden spoon work today just as they did 200 years ago.
Transfer the dough to a flat work surface and roll it out to about ½ inch thick; this is made much easier by placing the dough between two sheets of plastic wrap or floured parchment paper. Once dough is rolled, cut out cookies with your choice of cookie cutter, arrange them on your baking sheets and bake until lightly brown, about 15 to 20 minutes. The dough will hold in a bowl placed in your refrigerator if you have to do more than one rolling.
Allow cookies to cool thoroughly before offering them to your best friend.
Note that this recipe can be made for people simply by adding a cup of sugar to the stated recipe.
