Eating fresh and local is not just a human privilege. Dogs and cats can enjoy the benefits of food that is made fresh and with quality ingredients. In honor of the “Dogs & Cats in the Kitchen” contest, where one lucky pet owner could win THIS Bosch 36″ Freestanding Counter-Depth French Door Refrigerator, I put together a dog and cat recipe for you to try at home. If you haven’t entered the contest, go to the Mrs. G Facebook page now and submit a picture of your furry friend having fun in the kitchen. Good luck!

Ingredients
  1. • 1/2 cup of peanut butter (I used the creamy kind)
  2. • 1/4 cup honey
  3. • 1 tablespoon of virgin coconut oil (or olive oil)
  4. • 1 cup chicken broth
  5. • 1 cup rolled oats
  6. • 1 cup whole wheat flour
  7. • 1 cup all-purpose flour
  8. • 2-3 strip of bacon – cooked and chopped
Instructions
  1. 1. Preheat oven to 350 degrees.
  2. 2. Whisk together peanut butter, honey, oil and chicken broth.
  3. 3. In a separate bowl, combine flours and oatmeal. Mix dry ingredients into wet ingredients. Stir in chopped bacon.
  4. 4. Place dough on flour dusted surface. Roll or press dough out to about 1/4” inch thick.
  5. 5. Use a small bone cookie cutter to cut out cookies. For smaller dogs you may want to use a small cookie cutter (around 2″).
  6. 6. Roll out leftover scraps and cut out as many as possible. Put cut-out cookies on a parchment lined baking sheet.
  7. 7. Bake for 14-16 minutes.
  8. 8. Transfer to a cooling rack.
  9. 9. Store at room temperature or in the refrigerator for up to 1 week. Treats freeze well, up to 2 months.
Notes
  1. I added virgin coconut oil to the batter because it’s awesome for dogs and humans alike. If you don’t have coconut oil on hand, and don’t want to run to the store, simply replace it with olive oil.

  5. 5. Place treats in an airtight container and store in the refrigerator for up to seven days.
