Do you have a dog? If you do, have you ever made homemade treats for your dog? I thought it would be very hard to make dog treats but if you have peanut butter and a few ingredients, it's so easy to make these peanut butter doggie treats!
Have you met my Rosey? She's a feisty, protective, loyal,
my, my daughter Em's best friend. Sadly, she passed away of an old age but when she was alive, she had very sensitive stomach. We were very careful with what we fed her since we knew all about what to feed her NOT to feed her but still, not all dog treats agreed with her.
So we used to make these Peanut Butter Nuggets and she loved them and didn't throw up! I substituted peanut butter with soy butter once and she was ok with them too. I made sure to give her only about 3-4 pieces a day since she only weighed about 13 lbs. I purposely made them small bite sizes but you can make them into any size or shapes you'd like, depending on the size of your furry kids.
We used an old olive oil bottle cap to stamp out the circles. Then, pinched the edges in to make little flower shapes. We even made heart shaped ones out of measuring spoon set we had. And we baked even the leftover bits and pieces.
Then, bake in the oven at 350 degrees for 20 minutes. And voila!
Warning: Uncontrollable panting, excessive whimpering, barking, begging, and targeted attack on the holder of the treats by your furry kid is a normal sign. Proceed with caution when giving treats and as always, watch for signs of "overindulgence" in the post-gastronomic product.
In other words, don't blame me if you have to clean up mushy poop after giving into your pooch's uncontrollable desire to finish a whole bowl of these treats.
