I've made both of these and they get 8 paws up from my two... :) They keep better if you put them in baggies and freeze them. Pop out a few as needed. I use them for training snacks...

PEAMUTT BUTTER TREATS

2 TBL corn oil (I use olive oil)
1/2 Cup Peanut butter
1 cup water
1 cup whole wheat flour
2 cups white flour
Preheat oven to *350
Combine oil, PB and water.
Add flour one cup at a time, then knead into a firm dough. (I use a food
processor - zip/zap/done)
Roll dough to 1/4 in thickness and cut with cookie cutter or just cut into
triangles, squares........whatever, dogs don't care. (I have a bone cookie
cutter)
Sprinkle with ground peanuts (or not) and make 3-4 holes in the center of
the cookie with a toothpick to look like "Milk Bones" (or not)...the dogs
don't care.
Place on un-greased cookie sheet, bake at 350* for 20 min.
Makes 2 1/2 dozen (or not - depending on shape) the dogs don't care

GILROY GARLIC AND CHEESE TREATS

1 1/2 cup shredded cheddar cheese
1/2 cup softened margarine
1 1/2 cup whole wheat flour
1 clove minced GILROY garlic (or 1 tsp garlic powder)
1/4 cup milk

Preheat oven to 375*
Cream together cheese and margarine. Add flour, garlic and milk. (I use a
food processor)
Mold together into ball and roll dough to 1/4 in thickness.
Cut dough with cookie cutter or abstract shapes, sprinkle w/parmesan cheese
(or not) and placed on un-greased cookie sheet.
Bake at 375* for 20 minutes.

Lilly loves these...

I make them all the time for her.  I will also make them en masse for my rescues as holiday treats or to give to their new adoptive families and for my clients pups as great and healthy training treats!!!  

I also have several more like these that my dog just drools over.  If you want them let me know.

You got it...Let me get them together, as I have kinda a lot (I'm not a big fan of store bought, mass marketed treats).  You want me to shoot them to you or post them to the board?

I have a couple that I would like to post to the board anyways because they are soft and really good for training a yourger puppy and an older more "geriatric" dog.  They're really easy on the teeth.  I actually use most of mine for training, but they are great as tidbits for the spoiled baby as well as incentive for the dog that doesn't want to eat plain old dog food.

Just an FYI, though!!!!!:

Onions, Raisens, Grapes, Garlic, and Chocolate (duh Liz) can be very harmful to your dog!!!!  You shouldn't use them to make treats or put any of these ingredients into their food.

Those are awesome recipes..Got one question about the charcoal tho...BBQ charcoal? Ground up I assume? I can see why it would make a good bad breath deterrent tho....
