Dim will volunteer to test your sample treats.

Dim oversees the baking process.

A few people ask me on Facebook for the recipe to fabulous doggy treats, but I cannot take credit for it – mom saw a recipe from Cookie Rookie and just substituted my favorite yummy things! Mom also recommends doing a few tweaks so that you make good choices on sustainable ingredients that are better for animals and people. Dim endorses doing your part to help us have more treats in the future make world better for animals and people.

Gather ingredients:
1 packet wild salmon (Yooman says Alaskan wild salmon is best according to SeaFood watch )
1 jar natural creamy peanut butter  (A little more than 1 cup). (Yooman recommends trying to palm oil free peanut butter. Says it helps orangutans. )
1 cup organic chicken broth. (Yooman recommends getting from smaller farm market to support local farmers and not factory farms, or at the very least GMO free.)
2 table spoons applesauce
1 teaspoon baking powder
2 cups flour

Empty jar of peanut butter into a bowl. Stir so oil is mixed in, then pour in chicken broth. In a separate bowl, mix applesauce, flour, and baking powder. Mix well. Once mixed, take half the dough and put into a separate bowl.

Take bowl number one, spread out on floured wooden board. Use knife to cut squares. Once in nice little squares and give to dog to test. (Note from Dim: At this time, it is custom to give Dim some squares to test.) Place rest on cookie shook, bake at 375 for 15-20 minutes.

While that is baking, take salmon out of packet, and cut into super thin stripes one way, then again the other way, so that you have tiny little shreds of salmon. (Note from Dim: At this time, it is custom to give Dim some salmon to make sure it’s yummy.)  Mix the shreds of salmon in with the dough. Make sure it’s really spread through out the dough. Take and flatten onto wooden board that has flour on it. Cut into squares and place on cookie sheet. No need to spread too far apart, they won’t spread at all. Place into oven, bake for 20 minutes. It’s normal to hear some sizzling noise from the fish oil.

Once done baking, take out of oven, and put a plate to cool off and serve plate to Dim.
