      PEANUT BUTTER AND PUMPKIN TREATS
      Original recipe makes 25 treats

      2 1/2 cups whole wheat flour
      2 eggs
      1/2 cup canned pumpkin
      2 tablespoons peanut butter
      1/2 teaspoon salt
      1/2 teaspoon ground cinnamon

      Directions
      1. Preheat oven to 350 degrees F
      2. Whisk together the flour, eggs, pumpkin, peanut butter, salt, and cinnamon in a bowl. Add water as needed to help make the dough workable, but the dough should be dry and stiff. Roll the dough into a 1/2-inch-thick roll. Cut into 1/2-inch pieces.
      3. Bake in preheated oven until hard, about 40 minutes.

      Slice sweet potatoes in about 1/3" thick slices.
