Simple Peanut Butter Dog Treat Recipes

By Glyn Sheridan
 

Overview

Dogs love the taste of peanut butter and you can make simple, inexpensive treats at home using your own wholesome ingredients. Not only will your dog enjoy the fresh treats, he won't be eating the fillers and preservatives that are included in some commercial dog treats. When making treats for your dog, use natural peanut butter without added sugar, your dog will still love the treats and they will be healthier for him.
Your dog will love his peanut butter treats

Step 1

Combine the whole wheat flour and the oat bran flour in a large mixing bowl. Add the peanut butter and lard and work them into the dry ingredients with a fork until the mixture resembles pea-sized crumbs.

Step 2

Stir in the egg and the broth until well combined. The mixture should be about the same texture as thick cookie dough. If it seems a little soft, add a couple more tablespoons of whole-wheat flour. At this point, you may wrap the mixture in plastic wrap and store in the refrigerator for up to three days or you may roll it out immediately.

Step 3

Sprinkle flour on a large sheet of waxed paper and roll out the mixture in a rectangle no larger than your cookie sheet and approximately ¼-inch thick. Sprinkle more flour on top as you roll it out if it is sticky.

Step 4

Place the cookie sheet upside down on top of the rolled out mixture and use your hands or a large piece of cardboard, inserted under the waxed paper to flip the everything over onto the cookie sheet. Peel off the waxed paper.

Step 5

Bake the treat mixture in your oven for approximately 30 minutes or until the edges and the top are golden brown.

Step 6

Remove from the oven and use a large greased knife or a pizza cutter to score the treats into bite-size squares while the mixture is still warm. When the treats cool, they will break apart easily. Store your dog's peanut butter treats in an airtight container or a large zip-type plastic bag.

Thank you for the recipe but I need a little clarification please. 1) what are the measurements of each ingredient? 2) what kind of broth? 3) can you use butter for the lard or is the lard crisco? 4) What temperature does it bake at in the oven?

I would also be interested in the ingredient list. The top part of the recipe is missing. Got all the steps but, that's it. Hopefully someone has an answer.

Confused: I have recently found out that one of my dogs has a seizure condition. So we have been asked to change his diet. So we have pick up some Nutro dog food and Blue Buffalo dog treats. A representative in the store at the time had suggested that we make our own treats since it would cost less that the store bought treats. So we have found some good recipes with all natural peanut butter, wheat flour, flax and rolled oats. Now here is where the confusion comes from some recipes are made up of yogurt, salt, sugar, honey, molasses, and other things that we have found on a dangerous food for dogs list. Where can we find safe recipes that would not contain things they should not have?

I think the measurements are relevent to how much of each ingrediant you use. So it realy all depends on how much flower you start with
