homemade peanut butter dog biscuits

As wonderful as Sonny is, he needs a bit of fine tuning in the training department. He can sit, but he has no interest in lying down. He can come, but has no idea what a ball is and has clearly never played a day of fetch in his life. He's very good at playing deaf, but when you have a treat in your hand, he is an excellent listener. Enter homemade dog biscuits. Simple, wholesome, package/paper-free and small enough to be able to reward him a few times throughout the day without him getting all rollie pollie.

I'd tell you what he thinks of the taste, but I am pretty sure he inhales them before his tastebuds even get a chance to experience the peanut butter goodness.

2 1/2 cups wholewheat flour
1/2 cups oats
3 tbs peanut butter
1/2 cup water
1/2 cup sunflower oil
2 eggs
dash of vanilla
dash of cinnamon

Mix wet ingredients together and then add to dry ingredients until you have a doughy ball.
Add extra flour to the ball and knead a bit, then roll out into a large patty 3-4 cm thick. Cut into desired shapes (or just roll small balls and flatten with your thumb if you don't have a cookie cutter)
Bake for 15-20 minutes at 200˚C.

(In reality, dogs actually have very little tastebuds and 'taste' everything with their sense of smell)

Hello! I have just found my wayto you from Heathers 30 Day Vegan site and i am instantly clicking into a familiar groove here, I will definately be returning soon as ive seen much to interest me here. i am all the way in the UK and havent figured out where you are yet!
Anyway; I'd like to hear your thoughts on bottled water/tap water/filterde water... i struggle with this and believe that the tap water here is not ideal containing fluoride chlorine and much more (guess its the same with you?)is bottled not an improvement in your mind? i am trying to become more informed but there is a list of stuff im 'trying' to do and its slow progress... ;-)
Lookin forward to reading around your site!!
