Most dogs love peanut butter. You can cut these into bone shapes, people shapes, or simply shape like cookies. I have changed the name of this recipe due to the review from DogAndCatDoc. Please read the review before making. Thank you DogAndCatDoc for your review.
- Preheat the oven to 375 degrees F (190 degrees C). Grease cookie sheets. Stir together the flour and baking powder; set aside.
- In a medium bowl, mix together the peanut butter, milk and brown sugar. Stir in the flour mixture until well blended. Turn out dough onto a lightly floured surface and knead until smooth. Roll out to 1/4 inch thickness and cut into shapes using cookie cutters. Place 2 inches apart onto the prepared cookie sheets.
- Bake for 20 minutes in the preheated oven, or until lightly brown. Remove from cookie sheets to cool on wire racks.
Looks like a lot of fun...but just a quick reminder where two different medical conditions would make these contra-indicated. First one: allergies...so many of our canine friends suffer from food allergies that manifest as ear and skin infections (can also have respiratory or GI symptoms). Wheat is a common allergen. So if you have a dog with undiagnosed skin and ear problems, probably better pass on these. Second: obesity. The nutrient breakdown did not include the peanut butter, but I can assure you these are very high in both fat and calories, so if "Max" is a little portly, better try a light version or skip all together. OK...climbing down off my soap box...for a large number of dogs this recipe will be just fine and perhaps even better than the pre-made treats with unknown fillers and low quality ingredients, but as always, there is no one-size fits all...so be sure that your pet qualifies for this special little treat..then go ahead and use in moderation!
Thank you, Chef Mommie! My dog loves these. I was a bit worried because I only had 1/2 cup of peanut butter, but they turned out just fine and were so easy to make. Rather than using our bone-shaped cookie cutter, I used the top of a spice container. The cookies look just like vanilla wafers. This will become a regular treat for our pup.
Baking powder is apparently bad (toxic) for dogs. I would omit the baking powder if you are making these
