Homemade Peanut Butter Dog Biscuits
When you want to make your pet happy, offer them homebaked dog treats that you have made with love and wholesome ingredients.
I always prefer homemade treats made from scratch, so it makes sense that I’d want to make homemade dog biscuits for our four legged friends.
When I’m following a recipe for people, I often take creative liberty and adjust ingredients.
But dogs can’t eat everything that people do, so I recommend following this recipe exactly unless you are really familiar with dog nutrition.
Make sure you choose all natural, unsweetened peanut butter, instead of one that contains sugar or an alternative sweetener.
Xylitol is toxic to dogs and is often added to sweeten “low sugar” peanut butter, so you definitely want to check the label and avoid this.
Fortunately, my family prefers unsweetened natural peanut butter, so we like the same stuff that the dogs do.
Peanut butter dog treats are easy make, so just a little bit of effort will make you and your dogs happy.
All of the ingredients are people safe, so it’s ok to sneak a taste.
I prefer my cookies with a chewier texture and more taste, but they aren’t half bad.
Dog bone shaped cookie cutters come in a variety of shapes, so you can make whatever size is best for your dog.
Store any leftovers in an airtight container, so that they will be fresh and crunchy the next time your pooch needs a little something.
