Homemade Dog Treats

Use different shaped cookie cutters to make for any holiday!

This month the theme for our blog is all about saving money.  If you have a pet, you know that you spend so much extra money on food, treats, and toys.  So why not make your dog homemade treats with ingredients that are already in your pantry.  I made them recently as a Christmas treat for our German Shepherd and he couldn’t get enough of them.  He would have eaten the whole bag all at once if we let him.  My treats turned out pretty big, but for smaller dogs you can roll them thinner and use smaller cookie cutters for a petite treat.

 

 

 

Homemade Dog Treats

Merry Chistmas!

Recipe adapted from A Cozy Kitchen

1/2 cup all-natural peanut butter

1/4 cup honey

1 1/2 tablespoons Kelapo coconut oil

1 cup chicken broth

1 cup rolled oats

1 cup whole wheat flour

1 cup all-purpose flour

 

Preheat oven to 350 degrees. Whisk together peanut butter, honey, coconut oil and chicken broth. In a separate bowl, combine flours and oatmeal. Mix dry ingredients into wet ingredients. Place dough on flour dusted surface. Roll or press dough out to about 1/4” inch thick. Use a small cookie cutter to cut out cookies. Roll out leftover scraps and cut out as many as possible. Put cut out cookies on a parchment lined baking sheet. Bake for 14-16 minutes. Transfer to a cooling rack.

    I’m excited to try this recipe out! My pup has a sensitive stomach so she can’t have a lot of the cheap snacks at the store. I’m sure she will love them. I just have to hide them from my kids. lol

    I love making my own dog treats and would love to try making them with coconut oil. I have been wanting to try coconut oil but the price has stopped me.

    I wonder if this would work with rice flour or some other substitute. Dogs can’t digest wheat flour, and mine is allergic! I’ll try it with something better for him! Sounds like a great recipe otherwise! Very cute!

      Angie I was wondering if you had tried the recipe with the rice flour? My dog also can’t have wheat.

    I’m going to make this for our dog. Like Angie, I think I’ll skip the wheat flour and use a gluten-free flour instead.
