Have a friend with a new pooch? Instead of heading to a big box store, why not make some homemade dog treats?
This awesome recipe (and picture) is from The Novice Chef (a super cute food blog).

1 cup crunchy peanut butter
1 large egg
1/4 cup honey
1 cup old fashioned oats
2 cups whole wheat flour
1/3 cup vegetable oil
1/3 cup water
4 squares white almond bark
1 teaspoon vegetable oil
Preheat oven to 350°F. Line cookie sheets with parchment paper, set aside. In a stand mixer, combine all ingredients (peanut butter, egg, honey, oats, flour, oil and water), beating until a stiff dough forms. Pat out dough into a rectangle, about 1 inch in depth. Using a bone shaped cookie cutter, cut into bones. Use all dough. Bake for 30 minutes, flipping half way through. Transfer to a wire rack and let cool completely.
To Dip/Decorate: Melt almond bark and oil in the microwave, stirring every 30 seconds. Once melted/smooth, dip half of bone into almond bark and lay on parchment paper. Decorate with sprinkles or chopped peanuts and let cool completely.
Store in an airtight container for up to 2 weeks.
