Over the weekend, I attended a craft and food festival where some of the vendors were selling gourmet puppy treats. I thought I would try my hand at recreating these at home. My recipe is very simple. It came with the bone shaped cookie cutter I purchased.
2 cups whole wheat flour
1 tsp baking powder
1 cup peanut butter
1 cup skim milk
Preheat oven to 375 degrees, Mix the peanut butter and the milk. Combine the flour and baking powder and add to the peanut butter mixture. Turn out dough, knead and roll to 1/2". Bake for approximately 20 minutes on a parchment lined cookie sheet. Store
in an air tight container.
The recipe just called for peanut butter. It did not specify a particular type, but my review of similar recipes discovered that they used natural unsalted peanut butter. I believe this would be more nutritional for your puppy.
The dough was a little dry, but if you work with it, it is very easy to roll.
My dog, Snickers, gave them an A+.
If you have similar simple recipes for puppy treat that you would like to share, I would love to see them. Snickers likes to experiment with new foods.
