I have to say one thing and I'm pretty sure most of you know it... but for the one tenth that don't: NEVER EVER USE PEANUT BUTTER THAT CONTAINS XYLITOL!!!! Xylitol is poisonous to dogs. Xylitol is poisonous to dogs. Even tiny amounts of xylitol in dogs can cause hypoglycemia (low blood sugar), seizures, liver failure, and even death.
I hope your pup/pups like this recipe. The Graham flour makes the treats a little darker, but that is to be expected. If you make this, let me know!! BONE APPETITE!!!
