Ingredients for This Dog Treats Recipe
This simple recipe has only five ingredients. FIVE. It’s that simple.
You’ll be using:
- smooth peanut butter
- whole wheat flour
- baking powder
How to Make Dog Treats
First up, you’ll want to preheat your oven to 350 degrees.
Then, combine the ingredients in a mixer on low until well blended. Or borrow your son’s muscles. In my experience, boy’s love proving how big their muscles are and showcasing what they can accomplish.
Once well mixed, put the dough between two sheets of parchment paper and roll to approximately 1/4 inch in thickness.
We used a darling bone shaped cookie cutter for our puppy treats. You could also use a traditional circle cookie cutter or a glass.
Once we had the bone shapes, we popped them onto a cookie sheet for baking in the oven.
You’ll bake for approximately 17 minutes.
You’ll get about 40 medium sized dog cookies from this recipe.
How to Store Homemade Dog Treats
Now that you’ve learned how to make your own dog treats, how do you store them?
Although, your pal will want to devour them all in one sitting, I wouldn’t recommend it. 😉
I stored Max’s in an airtight container in the fridge. They can last for up to two months in the fridge or up to eight months in the freezer.
Max loved this recipe! And my boys loved giving them to him. Both my boys are definitely dog lovers and have a big soft spot for Max. He loves them as well — especially when they are in front of him with homemade dog treats! 🙂
While Max was noshing on his dog cookies, my sister and I did some chatting. I’m so excited watching her get ready for the birth of her daughter.
