 1 1/2 cups of organic whole wheat or white flour

1 1/2 cups oatmeal flour (run regular oatmeal through the food processor and grind fine)

2 organic eggs

1/2 cup smooth organic no salt peanut butter


  1. Preheat oven to 350 degrees.
  2. In a medium bowl crack eggs and beat for about 1 minute (can use hand mixer). Add pureed pumpkin and peanut butter. Mix until creamy.
  3. Add flours and cranberry to the mix. Stir and knead until a stiff dough is formed.

Tonight, as the aroma of fresh baked dog cookies filled the house Christopher was patiently waiting outside the kitchen for his treat. He knows he is not supposed to be in the kitchen. I guess he deserves an extra treat, don’t you agree?
