Peanut Butter and Applesauce Canine Cookies

3 cups whole wheat flour
2 cups quick-cook oats
1 cup peanut butter
1 1/2 cups unsweetened organic applesauce
1 teaspoon baking powder
1/4-1/2 cup olive oil or coconut oil, optional

Preheat oven to 350 degrees. Line two baking sheets with parchment paper. Combine all ingredients in a large bowl until well blended. Knead dough on a lightly floured surface. Roll the dough until 1/4 inch thick and then cut into shapes with cookie cutters or roll to create small dough balls. Place cookies on prepared baking sheets, approximately 1/2 inch apart. Bake for 25 minutes or until lightly browned. Remove from oven and cool completely.
