Peanut Butter Dog Treat Recipe

Ingredients:

  • 2 cups whole wheat flour
  • 1/4 cup quick-cooking oatmeal
  • 1/4 cup organic dried cranberries, finely chopped
  • 1 cup unsalted, no-sugar-added natural peanut butter
  • 3/4 cup cooked sweet potato puree or canned pumpkin puree
  • 1/3 cup water

Instructions:

  1. Preheat oven to 350 degrees F.
  2. In a large bowl, stir together flour, oatmeal and cranberries. Set aside.
  3. In a medium bowl, stir together peanut butter, sweet potato puree and water. Add to flour mixture and stir until combined.
  4. Turn dough onto a lightly-floured surface and knead until it comes together. Roll dough to ¼ in. thickness and cut with desired cookie cutter.
  5. Place treats on an ungreased cookie sheet, ½ in. apart, and bake 19 to 22 minutes (for smaller 1 in. cookies) or 25 to 28 minutes (for larger 3 in. cookies). For a crispier cookie, turn the oven off at end of baking time and leave the pan in the oven. Leave the door ajar for an additional 2 to 3 hours.

Notes:

  • Be sure to check that all the ingredients purchased do not contain xylitol, which is toxic to dogs
  • If possible, use organic dried cranberries, which generally have less added sugar than other brands
  • Treats should be fed to dogs with plenty of fresh water
  • If you have any questions about any of the ingredients used, please contact your veterinarian
