This is a recipe I tweaked from a dog biscuit recipe, it's all natural and healthy and veterinarian approved (for dogs) so if you think anything in here is not good for rats please let me know. It's a treat.. not intended as a diet staple. My rats love them.

2 tablespoon peanut butter
1.5 teaspoon olive oil (or veg. oil but olive is better)
1/2 cup water
1 cup + 1/8 cup whole wheat flour
1/2 cup oatmeal

Preheat oven to 375 degrees. Combine peanut butter, oil, and water in a bowl. Gradually add flour, then oatmeal. Roll dough to 1/4 inch thickness and cut with a tiny cookie cutter or bottle cap OR roll dough into tiny balls (about dime size). Place on an ungreased cookie sheet.
Bake at 375 degrees for 10-15 minutes (watch them though - it differs batch to batch for me).

I always sprinkle the counter with flour, and the rolling pin, and the dough ball because it gets really sticky and hard to handle.

I have other recipes too if anyone likes this idea!
