Cheap And Easy Peanut Dog Treats
- 2 cups of whole wheat flour
- 1/3 cup creamy peanut butter (make sure that it doesn’t contain xylitol)
- 2 eggs
- 1/2 cup water
The type of peanut butter that you use in the recipe is up to you, just make sure that it doesn’t contain xylitol.
I used creamy peanut when making my recipe but you can also use chunky. If you use a chunky peanut butter you might have to adjust the water so that the dough doesn’t get too stiff. You can use homemade dog peanut butter if you have some on hand.
- Preheat your oven to 350 F.
- In large bowl, mix together your wheat flour, peanut butter and eggs combined.
- Add the water
- Roll out your dough and cut into shapes
- Place your treats onto your parchment lined baking sheet and cook for about 20 minutes.
Depending on the size of your cookies, you might need to adjust the baking time.
Also, if you don’t have cookies cutters, you can use a knife or pizza cutter to cut the dough into squares.
These easy peanut butter dog treats should be kept in an airtight container in the cupboard, fridge or freezer.
If you keep them in the cupboard, they should stay fresh for about 7 days.
I used larger 3 inch cookie cutters size and this peanut butter dog treat recipe made 18 cookies.
If you use smaller cutters, you will get a lot more!
