I tried 3 simple variations on this recipe to make 3 versions of treats for the dogs.

4 C whole wheat flour

1 tsp salt

1 tsp baking soda

1 tsp cinnamon

2 C buttermilk

1/4 C honey

2 tsp vanilla

6 Tbsp unsalted butter

Melt the butter, set aside.  Mix together the dry ingredients, add the wet ingredients, mix lightly then drizzle in melter butter and mix thoroughly to form a dough.  Roll out on a floured surface.  Cut into desired shapes.  Bake on a greased cookie sheet at 350 degrees F for 25 minutes.

1 Tbsp ginger

1 tsp baking soda

1 tsp cinnamon

2 C buttermilk

1/4 C honey

1/2 C blackstrap molasses

Mix together the dry ingredients. Stir the wet ingredients to mix and combine with the dry ingredients. Mix thoroughly to form a dough. Roll out on a floured surface. Cut into desired shapes. Bake on a greased cookie sheet at 350 degrees F for 25 minutes.

Using an electric mixer, beat the peanut butter and buttermilk until smooth. Mix together the dry ingredients, add the wet ingredients, and mix thoroughly to form a dough. Shape dough into a log on waxed paper, wrap and refrigerate overnight. Cut the log into desired sized slices with a knife. Bake on a greased cookie sheet at 350 degrees F for 25 minutes, flipping treats halfway through.

    Thanks for such easy recipes! We don’t have air conditioning (just small, anemic window units in 2 rooms) so no oven baking until autumn, but my dogs will love these!

    If your dogs don’t do wheat, this is an alternative recipe I have used for years. I ended up with a vegan variety thanks to Pickles, Nathan’s dog.
