Everyone loves peanut butter right? Whether you are a smooth or a crunchy fan, in moderation, it is healthy for humans and fur friends alike. This recipe is intended to be a healthy peanut butter dog treat. However, some people will tell you that peanut butter is not healthy for your pet. Here is an article, Should Dogs Eat Peanut Butter? about potential dangers peanut butter may harbor that you may wish to read.
2 cups wheat flour
1/2 cup peanut butter (no xylitol added!)
water (enough to make like a dough)
1/2 jar of apple and pumpkin baby food
(Unless you are very talented and can mix the ingredients yourself, ask your human to make these for you. My Shelley can cook, but she is no Julia Child, so these are as easy as they get.)
- Preheat the oven to 350 F.
- Mix together the flour, peanut butter, apple and pumpkin baby food & eggs in a large bowl until slightly combined.
- Add in a little bit of water (about 1/2 cup) until the mixture becomes wet enough to roll out as dough.
- My Shelley never gets the consistency of non-sticky dough, so she just mixes it well and spoons the mixture onto a cookie sheet with a silicone mat* or foil.
- Cook for about 15 minutes.
- Remove and slice with a pizza cutter or knife into squares or rectangles or use one of your favorite pet shapes. These are the bone shaped cookie cutters* Shelley bought.
- After cooling, place in an air tight container in the fridge or vacuum pack and freeze some for later.

Hi, I’m Trixie! I love treats, sleeping, chewing up my toys and I especially like chasing small critters that enter my yard. (Don’t worry, my mom makes sure that I don’t catch any of them.) I was rescued when someone dumped me at the driveway, pregnant with 10 little puppies. Though my mom had dogs as a kid, she realized there was a lot she didn’t know.
