Almost Vegan Puppy Biscuits

I made this dog biscuit recipe a total of eight times with about eighty 11-year-olds last year to give to the Humane Society. It's easy to whip up a batch and the dogs really love them. There's no rolling involved (although you could if you're itching to use that bone-shaped cookie cutter) so get your hands dirty and make whatever shapes call to you! Dog poop was a popular option amongst the sixth grade crowd.

1 bouillon cube (optional)
1 1/2 cup hot water
1/2 cup peanut butter (chunky or smooth)
1/3 cup oil (olive oil for pampered pups)

1 cup uncooked oatmeal
3/4 cup cornmeal
3 cup whole wheat flour
3/4 cup powdered milk

Preheat the oven to 325.
If you decide to use a bullion cube for extra flavor, dissolve it in the hot water.
Combine the water, oil, and peanut butter until reasonably smooth. (These are dog biscuits, after all. Don't go overboard on the effort front.)
Add the dry ingredients (oatmeal, cornmeal, flour, and powdered milk) until combined.
Shape the dough into puppy-appropriate forms and bake at 325 until the biscuits are firm to the touch.
