May 03, 2019 2 min read

Homemade dog treats are easy to make, and your pup will love them! It’s nice knowing exactly what’s going into your dogs’ snacks. They are made with simple ingredients that you probably have in your pantry already. Making dog treats is a lot like making sugar cookies, you make your dough, roll it out, cut it out and bake.

Peanut Butter Dog Treat

Ingredients

1 cup whole wheat flour

½ cup creamy peanut butter

¼ cup unsweetened apple sauce or mashed banana

¼ cup vegetable, chicken, or beef stock

Bone shaped cookie cutter

Instructions

Preheat oven to 350 degrees

Combine flour, peanut butter and apple sauce in a large mixing bowl. Add stock and stir well until well-combined. The dough will be thick. Once combined use your hands to press the dough into a ball.

Place the dough ball on a flat surface (with a sprinkle of flour if needed) and roll out evenly with a rolling pin. Dough should be about ¼ inch thick. Use a cookie cutter to cut the dough into desired shape and place on ungreased baking sheet.

Bake for 18 minutes or until golden brown. Store in airtight container.

Spinach, Carrot, Zucchini Dog Treat

Ingredients

1 cup pumpkin puree

1/4 cup peanut butter

2 large eggs

1/2 cup old fashioned oats

3 cups whole wheat flour, or more, as needed

1 carrot, peeled and shredded

1 zucchini, shredded

1 cup baby spinach, chopped

Instructions

Preheat oven to 350 degrees F. Line a baking sheet with parchment paper or a silicone baking mat; set aside.

In the bowl of an electric mixer fitted with the paddle attachment, beat pumpkin puree, peanut butter and eggs on medium-high until well combined, about 1-2 minutes.

Gradually add old fashioned oats and 2 1/2 cups flour at low speed, beating just until incorporated. Add an additional 1/4 cup flour at a time just until the dough is no longer sticky. Add carrot, zucchini and spinach, beating just until incorporated.

Working on a lightly floured surface, knead the dough 3-4 times until it comes together. Using a rolling pin, roll the dough to 1/4-inch thickness. Using cookie cutters, cut out desired shapes and place onto the prepared baking sheet.

Place into oven and bake until the edges are golden brown, about 20-25 minutes. *

Let cool completely.
