- If your dog loves peanut butter, you can’t go wrong with this simple recipe. All you need is flour, peanut butter, eggs and water. Mix it all together, add enough water to make dough, and roll it out. You can use cookie cutter shapes. Bake for 20 minutes. These taste as good as they smell!
- Bake these at 350 for best results. They come out like a little muffin and are human-friendly, though probably not going to appease our taste buds the same.
- No ingredient (especially check the peanut butter) should include sweetener (artificial or natural).
- Ingredients – always read ingredient labels of any items you might use to prepare your dog treats and avoid ingredients that are toxic to dogs like grapes or raisins, chocolate products, onions, garlic, milk products, xylitol (and other fake sugars or sweeteners, best to avoid sugar as a whole), avocado, macadamia nuts, and high levels of salt, to name a few. Instead, look for ingredients that will be beneficial to your dog like: blueberries, sliced apple, or bananas; oats, pasta, or rice; sweet potatoes or pumpkin; boiled chicken or beef (fat trimmed off); or fresh veggies like carrots, green beans, broccoli, zucchini, or cucumber. Also, avoid adding seasoning to your pet’s treats as many seasonings could upset their stomachs.
