Dog Treats: a recipe


As promised, a dog treat recipe for the dog lover's on your list. This recipe is modified from this source

*Note*  I've researched all of the ingredients in this recipe and found them to be a-ok for the average dog (Milk is okay in a baked treat such as these). However, it's always good to do your own research and be aware of your own dog's dietary restrictions. 

Ingredients:


1 cup Smooth or Crunchy Peanut butter (I think I'll use smooth next time for a better dough consistency)

1 cup Milk

1 Ripe Banana

2 Cups Whole Wheat Flour (Do not use white flour)

1 tbsp Baking Powder






Recipe:

Blend together milk, banana, and peanut butter until creamy
Slowly add flour (about a 1/2 cup at a time) and blend until dough forms.
Roll out and cut shapes
Bake at 375 for 10-14 minutes




Enjoy!

I made homemade treats for my dogs and it's basically the same ingredients, plus chicken broth and a few oats for flavor and texture. I love that I can give them something slightly healthy and organic!

The last time I made dog treat, they turned out TERRIBLY! My dog didn't even really like them, and that's saying something. Haha! This recipe seems a lot more simple though so maybe I'll give it a try.

I cant wait to try this! Question though, why use wheat flour instead of white? i wanted to make these today but all i have here is white. just curious!

Katy said...

Jenelle,

In my research I found that white flour isn't as safe for dogs. Not sure exactly why though!

can you use rice flour instead of wheat? my dog is in a gluten free diet as he has a sensitive stomach.

I make these all the time except I don't add the bananas..I have a bone cookie cutter that I got from pet smart and my doggies love them...

Another dog treat recipe! My wife loves making homemade dog treats for our 3 year old Japanese spitz. I hope our dog will love this new treat! Thanks for the idea.

So I found this recipe on Pinterest and tried it out for my puppy. I made them about a week ago and have been keeping them in an airtight container. I noticed as of today all of them have mold on them. Should I have been refrigerating them, or do they just not last longer than a week? My dog liked them, so I'd like to make them again, but there's no point in making fifty treats if we can only use 20 before they mold. :(

I've made these numerous times for my dog and she loves them! I actually put them right in a freezer-safe container and she eats them right from the freezer. Thank you so much for this recipe!
