Homemade Dog Treats Recipe (Peanut Butter Dog Treats)

Homemade Dog Treats are my preferred ways to let my pet know that we cherish them as a family! This peanut butter homemade dog treat recipe is a simple dog biscuit I’m sure our pets would ask for each week, if they could. I created this recipe in 2016 to feed my pet Apollo My first puppy. They are now a favorite of the two family friends we have, Apollo and Annie. Everyone deserves the pleasure of homemade treats and this is the recipe that you could serve to your dogs.

What’s included in the recipe for this Dog Treats recipe?

This is a recipe I created from scratch, freshly baked dog treats for our dogs to let them know that they’re special! It’s easy to prepare with only five ingredients and you can easily make more to save to enjoy future use. Be assured that your pets will absolutely enjoy the flavor peanut butter treats for dogs.

flour: It is my preference to utilize whole wheat flour in dog biscuits due to the added nutrients. Other flours can be utilized in the event that you can assure your pet doesn’t have allergies to.

The Butter: This thickens the dough into which is delicious and has a peanut butter taste! Make sure to use a pure peanut butter and make sure you read the ingredient list. avoid anything containing Xylitol (an artificial sweetener) that isn’t suitable for dogs.

Egg Combines all the components, forming an animal-friendly cookie dough.

water: It adds moisture, which helps to create a dough that is pliable.

Honey Honey sweetens taste a tiny amount.

Frosting In case you’d like to decorate your cake with a frosting some decoration You’ll require more honey and peanut butter, along with hot water as well as cornstarch.

It is important to note that dogs may have allergies, just like humans and, therefore, while these foods can be used safely for dogs ensure you are aware of the foods your dog is allowed to eat and not. It is recommended to give the dog a tiny bite to try these snacks before you begin using the treats frequently.

Flavor Variations

Although peanut butter dog biscuits appear to be the most loved taste, it is possible to modify these biscuits to suit your dog.

You can use other types of nut butters, in the event that you know that your pet loves the taste and is able to digest the nut butters. Also, we have made them by mixing equal amounts of pure pumpkin or plain sweet potato as an alternative.

If you choose to mix different ingredients together make sure you keep a close focus on the consistency of the dough. You want it to remain hard and spongy. You can add a small amount of each ingredient until the dough becomes sufficiently firm to make a roll and then cut.

How to Store

When the cookies are completely cool Once completely cooled, I keep homemade peanut butter biscuits for dogs inside an airtight container (very crucial) inside the refrigerator lasting up to a month. This recipe can make 24 medium-sized dog biscuits which means you’ll have enough to give your pet whenever he wants a tasty snack.

How to Freeze

This simple recipe to make dog food could be frozen for as long as 8 months. I suggest placing an entire pan of the treats within the freezer to freeze for approximately one hour and then moving them into a freezer-safe container or container. It will stop them from becoming stuck together. This way, you can take the ones you require while keeping the remainder stored away. Transfer them to your fridge for thawing.

The dog treats that have been tested over time were created by hundreds of pet lovers throughout many years. They are always received 5 stars reviews (over 2000 five star reviews!) If only my dog spoke every when they have a bite! These were the first ones I created in the year 2016 to celebrate my dog’s first pup Scout (that’s her cute smile above). My dog was in love and now my dog, Daisy, couldn’t agree more.
