Canine Cakery: Homemade Peanut Butter Dog Treats

24 Nov

So every once in a while I go out on a limb and I make something other than cupcakes.

Wait, you can actually cook things besides cupcakes?

Yes, I do occasionally make things that do not involve mass quantities of butter and/or confectioners’ sugar.

Emphasis on “occasionally.”

So a few weeks back I mixed up these delicious and oh-so-nutritous dog treats.

They are made with organic peanut butter, oats, and coconut.

Promptly scarfed down by hungry dogs…and cats.

And in the event a family member thinks these are cookies and eats one…well, it will taste like a very dry and not very sweet peanut butter cookie. How do I know? Don’t ask…

Peanut Butter Oatmeal Dog Treat Recipe:

  • 1 cup flour
  • 1/4 cup oats
  • 1/4 cup shredded coconut
  • 1/2 tablespoon baking powder
  • 1/2 cup creamy peanut butter
  • 1/2 cup milk
  • 1 tablespoon apple sauce
  • 1 tablespoon olive oil

Preheat oven to 350F. Mix all the dry ingredients together. In a separate bowl, stir together the wet ingredients. Slowly add the dry mixture to the wet ingredients, until well combined. Add additional flour or oats until you have a consistency suitable for rolling cut-outs. On wax paper, roll dough to 1/2 inch think and cut out treats. Place on a baking sheet lined with parchment paper and bake for 20 minutes, or until golden brown. Let cool, and enjoy! Store in an airtight container for freshness.
