Peanut Butter Dog Treats
(I made these for Charlie since he couldn’t have salt. I use low sodium peanut butter and he loved these.)
• 2 cups whole wheat flour
• 1 1/2 teaspoons baking powder
• 1/3 cup smooth peanut butter
• 1 cup skim milk, or 1 cup hot water (NOT BOILING WATER)
• 1 egg, this is optional you do not have to include it. The egg makes a dog’s coat shiny (I did not include the egg in the treats I gave to my puppy)
Preheat the oven to 375 degrees.
Line a cookie sheet with tin foil or parchment paper and set aside.
In a large mixing bowl combine the whole wheat flour and the baking powder.
Then, in the same mixing bowl add the milk, or hot water, and peanut butter.
Carefully mix the wet ingredients and the dry ingredients. If the dough is too dry add a little more milk or water, or if it is too wet add an additional tablespoon of flour until it is not too wet.
Place dough on counter and roll it out with a rolling pin, or flatten the dough out with your hands.
Use dog bone cookie cutters and cut the dough into various size dog biscuits. Place cut out dog bones on cookie sheet. Leave space between the bones on the cookie sheet because they will spread slightly and rise.
If the dough gets too sticky while you are cutting out the bones sprinkle it with flour and it will decrease the stickiness.
Once all the dough is cut up bake the bones for twenty minutes at 375 degrees. The bones should be light brown when done. Allow the bones to cool before giving one to your puppy!
Thanks so much to reader Janet for sending me these adorable photos of her grandchildren making the treats for her three pups!
