Conversation Heart Puppy Cookies

valentines-day-treat-for-dogs

Can you believe Valentine's Day is already this weekend?! Last week, I shared a sweet treat for all the humans in your life and today, I'm sharing a treat for all the dogs! I love making Ella homemade treats -- not only does she seem to enjoy ever bite, but by making them myself, I know all ingredients going into them. We are pretty particular about the kind of food and treats we feed her -- besides being crazy puppy parents, she has quite the sensitive stomach. When I found this recipe from Giada De Laurentiis, I thought it definitely had potential! Two of Ella's favorite cookie ingredients happen to be chicken and peanut butter and although that combination might sound gross {super gross!} to humans, she loves it! I modified this recipe slightly by skipping the Parmesan cheese and cutting the cookies into hearts to recreate the conversation heart Valentine's Day candy, which is all too appropriate! This recipe made a lot of cookies, so you could easily freeze any leftovers or send some to your dog neighbors!

Conversation Heart Puppy Cookies

{what you will need}
2 cups whole wheat flour, additional for dusting
1/2 cup old fashioned oats
1 tablespoon baking powder
1 cup low sodium chicken broth
1 cup creamy peanut butter, plus additional 2 tablespoons for frosting

{directions}
Preheat the oven to 375 degrees. Combine the whole wheat flour, old fashioned oats and baking powder in a large bowl. Stir in the chicken broth and peanut butter until a crumbly dough forms. Lightly flour your work surface and knead the dough until smooth. Roll the dough out into a circle, with a thickness of about 1/2 inch. Cut dough into desired shape and place on baking sheet that has been sprayed with vegetable oil or you can also use a silicon baking mat. Bake for about 20 minutes until slightly golden. Allow to cool on the baking sheet for 5 minutes before transferring to a cooling rack. Cool completely before frosting. For the frosting: mix about 2 tablespoons of peanut butter with about 1 teaspoon water {you can play with the consistency by adding more water}. Place the peanut butter mixture in a frosting bag and, using a tiny circle decorating tip, pipe on desired sayings for your conversation hearts!
