Granola Trail Treats For Dogs

• ¼ cup pumpkin seeds
• 1 tbsp. flax seeds
• ¼ cup shredded or grated coconut
• 2 tbsp. (or more) dried fruit, such as blueberries

• 1 egg, slightly beaten
• 1¼ cups unsalted peanut butter

Combine the dry ingredients in a medium-size bowl Beat an egg in a small bowl. Combine the peanut butter, chicken broth and mix; add the egg, oil and honey and stir again.
Add the wet ingredients to the dry, mixing with a wooden spoon. The mixture should hold together well enough to be easily shaped into balls; if it seems too wet, add some whole-wheat or rye flour. Shape into 1-inch balls and place on the baking sheet.
