Peanut Butter Dog Treats

Peanut Butter Dog Treats

Peanut Butter Dog Treats

As much as we love working in the kitchen, we sometimes forget that there are others besides the two of us that we can cook for – our pups!  I made these for Dexter & Dewey over the holiday weekend, and I’m convinced they now think I’m the most wonderful person on the planet – but was there ever any doubt?  Whip these up for your favorite four-legged friend and watch them disappear faster than you can say Blue’s Clues.

What You’ll Need:

  • 1 cup whole wheat flour
  • 3/4 cup uncooked oats
  • 1/4 cup natural peanut butter – the lower the sugar content, the better.  I like Jif or Skippy, since those tend to be creamier with less oil separation.
  • 1/2 cup water
  • 1/4 cup vegetable oil (canola oil is best)
  • 2 tablespoons honey
  • 1 teaspoon baking powder
  • What You’ll Do:

    Preheat oven to 350 degrees.  Stir together dry ingredients in a mixing bowl.  Add wet ingredients and blend well.   Roll onto smooth surface dusted with wheat flour to keep from sticking.  The dough should be around 1/4″ thick.  Cut into shapes using cookie cutters and arrange on a baking sheet that has been coated with non-stick cooking spray.  Bake for 18-20 minutes.  For an extra crunchy texture, turn the oven off and leave the treats inside for an additional 60 minutes.  Let cool completely and store in airtight container.  Give to short, fuzzy creatures and be forever worshipped.

     

    Peanut Butter Dog Treats

    Making dog treats at home is not only fun, but a great way to get your baking fix when you don’t want the temptation of having a lot of sinful yummy food taunting you from your kitchen counters.  Believe me, I know.

    1. Baking fix? What’s that? I totally didn’t make a chocolate cream cheese berry pie on Monday just because I wanted to bake and was craving chocolate. Nope, didn’t do that at all. And it wasn’t delicious.

    2. Thank you for sharing these!  My pup will definitely appreciate them =)

    3. Wow – just the pictures of these peanut butter treats makes MY mouth water – I can’t imagine what my dogs will think!  I can’t wait to bake these tomorrow – my fur kids will love them I’m sure!  Thanks for posting this recipe!

    4. Too bad Skinny Fat Kid is allergic to peanut butter! I bet Izzy would love these, but then she can’t give kisses!

    5. I’ll definitely be making these for my crew! Sounds like an easy recipe!

    6. I should have asked this before, but how long do you think these would stay fresh if kept in an airtight container?  I only ask because I want to bake them as Christmas gifts for pets of family and friends, but will probably only have time to do so early this week.  Please let me know if you have any clue.  Thanks! =)

      My daughter found these on pinterest and made them for our dog. Now… he ONLY wants these treats. He’s been hiding the boxed treats we have and has been doing anything he can to get these. Thanks for sharing!
