Doggie Treats

Homemade Treats for your Fur Babies



You may ask why make them and go to all the trouble for your dog?  Well why not!

For starters when you make them yourself It’s all homemade with out all the added chemicals and additives and who knows what else is in the store bought ones!

So let’s do this for our four-legged critters we love!

Here’s what you will need to get started:

  • 1 Cup of whole wheat flour (preferably a all Natural flour)
  • 1/2 Cup of creamy peanut butter
  • 1 Banana mashed
  • 1/4 Cup of beef or chicken stock
  • 1/2  Cup  of Frozen Peas (slightly thawed)

Pre heat oven to 350 degrees.

Mix the above ingredients in a large mixing bowl by hand;  It will be thick and sticky.   Then dump onto floured surface and form into a ball then sprinkle a little extra flour on top of dough and roll out till about 1/4 – 1/2 inch thick and cut out with a doggie cookie cutter.  ( They are  so dang cute) or whatever shape you want .

Place on cookie sheet sprayed with a release like PAM or Vegetable Spray .

If you know your pet does not like bananas you could use apple sauce instead, Also I added peas but you could grind up carrots also.  My dogs happen to love fruit and veggies so this is how I make mine.  So enjoy and have fun and  they will love you for it!!

Bake for 15-18 min until lightly golden brown and store in an air tight container.

All Done and ready for those Fur Babies!
