Dogs love their treats, but store bought dog treats can become an expensive drain on your budget (let’s not mention questionable ingredients used). Why not create your own inexpensive, healthy peanut butter treats your dog will love?
What better way to say “I love you” then homebaked treats. Spoil your pooch with a little fresh-baked love from your kitchen. These peanut butter goodies are fun to make (get out the cookie cutters) and so adorable you’ll want to share them with your other doggie friends.
Peanut Butter Dog Treats
- 2 tbsp corn oil
- 1/2 cup peanut butter
- 1 cup water
- 1 cup whole wheat flour
- 2 cups white flour
Preheat oven to 350F. Combine oil, peanut butter, and water. Add flour 1 cup at a time, then knead into firm dough. Roll dough to 1/4 inch thickness and cut with small bone shaped cookie cutter. Bake at 350 for 20 minutes. For hard and crunchy treats, leave them in the oven for a few hours after baking. Makes about 3 dozen.
