Peanut Butter Pops

In a small mixing bowl, combine peanut butter with a little water or half a mashed banana. (The water and banana aren’t essential but help with freezing consistency.)
Spoon the mixture into the cubes, or drop onto the tray just like you would cookie dough.
Freeze. If you need to reuse the tray right away, pop out the cubes and store them in a bag or container in the freezer.
Serve. Turn any hot dog into a happy camper.

Biscotti Treats for Your Pet

You can alternate this to your own preference. My dog doesn’t like peanuts (go figure) so I just eliminate them in the recipe.

5 cups flour
1/4 cup peanuts, chopped
½ teaspoon baking soda
1 egg
¼ cup vegetable oil
1 ½ cups banana, pureed
2 teaspoons vanilla
water
Preheat oven to 325F. Place dry ingredients in large bowl. Make a well in the center. Blend egg, oil and banana together. Add into the dry ingredinets in well. start combining together. Add water, one teaspoon at a time as needed. Knead by hand on table until mixed thoroughly. Form into logs approximately 2″ – 2 1/2″ high. Flatten so that log iis 6″ – 7″ wide by 1″ high. Place on non-stick baking sheets or lightly greased ones. Bake 30 – 40 minutes. Remove and cool for 10 minutes. Slice into 1/2″ – 3/4″ slices. Place on baking sheets and bake for about 20 minutes or until golden brown. Cool. Store in airtight container.

Baby Food Soft Treats

Ingredients:
1 6 oz. jar baby food (any flavor)
1 can tuna in the water
¼ cup powdered milk
¾ cup Cream of Wheat

Directions:
Dump all the ingredients together into a bowl and mix with a fork. Line an 8 inch square pyrex dish with aluminum foil and spray with cooking spray.
Bake for 15 min. in a 325 degree oven. Turn it off and let them continue cooking for another 5 minutes in the oven. Then take them out to cool.
The consistency is that of slightly undercooked brownies. If you want to cook them for an additional 5-10 minutes, they will harden. It’s up to you.
Makes about a dozen 1 x 1 inch treats. More if you cut them smaller. Refrigerate to store up to a week

Alternate:
Increase the Cream of Wheat to 1 cup and the powdered milk to 1/2 cup. Other directions remain the same. This will be a harder treat.
