Puppy Treats

DSC_0075-2.jpg

I am an animal lover to my core so it’s difficult for me to watch others feed their dogs food containing ingredients they can’t even pronounce. I watch what I put into my body so why wouldn’t I do the same for my furry friends.

I love that this recipe only uses 5 ingredients! Crazy, right? Besides all being wholesome ingredients, the treats actually hold their shape and don’t fall crumble like other recipes. Yup, whatever shape you want.

This will become your go-to recipe for puppy treats—Christmas (hint!), birthdays, Valentine’s Day, just because! Plus they make great gifts. Apparently they not only look good, but taste amazing because each of my taste-tester dogs scarfed theirs down in a second flat!

PUPPY TREATS

Ingredients

  • 2 cups whole wheat flour
  • 1 cup natural unsalted peanut butter
  • 1 cup skim milk (or goat milk)
  • 1 tbsp baking powder

Directions

  1. Preheat oven to 375 degrees F and grease or line sheet tray with parchment paper.
  2. In small bowl, mix together the flour and baking powder.
  3. In medium bowl, mix peanut butter and milk then store in the dry mixture until well combined.
  4. Knead dough on lightly floured surface until smooth.
  5. Roll out to 1/4 inch thick sheet and use cookie cutters to cut out desired shapes. I found my Wilton bone shape cookie cutter at Michaels.
  6. Space 2 inches apart onto the sheet tray and bake until lightly brown, roughly 20 minutes.
  7. Remove from oven and transfer to cooling racks.

For an extra special treat add some puppy-friendly royal icing!
