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:
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 ¼" 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.
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.
I have a rott and my vet recommended to me that I not give her store bought treats because many of them have harsh chemicals in them that can be bad for dogs bones. And with many rotts having hip displasiea this really freaked me out!! I've tried making her 100's of different treats and she dosnt like any of them. So I tried this recipe and she LOVES them!!!! Great recipe and super easy to make!!!!
I'm so happy your doggie loves them!! 🙂
Just wondering, how long these will last! I keep buying treats from petsmart and the money just adds up! Just wanted to know how long I can keep them for! Thanks!
TY, Linda Dunn for his first batch!!! 🙂

Correction, SIR Pugsley! 🙂
We will have to make him some more cookies
Mr. Pugsley loves these cookies! 🙂
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!
Lauren @ hey, who cut the cheese?
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! =)
I'll definitely be making these for my crew! Sounds like an easy recipe!

Too bad Skinny Fat Kid is allergic to peanut butter! I bet Izzy would love these, but then she can't give kisses!
Aww allergic to peanut butter!! Say it ain't so! You'll just have to institute a No Smooch rule if she eats them. 🙂

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!
Thank you!! I hope you love 'em!

Thank you for sharing these! My pup will definitely appreciate them =)
Thanks for the comment! Hope your lil fluffball enjoys them!
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.
Mmm that sounds heavenly!!
