Bake Some Nutty Puppy Treats
We know that our human customers love to gobble up baked goods made with our products, but what about your loyal pups? Dogs love peanut butter almost as much as we do! We discovered a recipe for peanut-buttery dog treats that’ll make your canine companion go wild!
To start, preheat your oven to 350 degrees Fahrenheit. Whisk together 2 eggs, 3/4 cup of plain pumpkin puree and 1/4 cup of creamy and unsalted organic peanut butter. It’s important to use a peanut butter with no or very little added sugar and salt when baking for dogs because plain peanut butter is more healthful for them. Also, try to steer clear of crunchy varieties, as pieces of peanuts can present a choking hazard in small dogs and puppies.
Add 1/2 tsp. of salt and 1/2 tsp. of ground cinnamon to the dough. Slowly knead in 2 to 2-1/2 cups of whole-wheat flour. You want the dough to be smooth, elastic and just slightly sticky.
Turn the peanut butter dog biscuit dough out onto a floured surface and roll the dough into a 1/4-inch-thick sheet. Cut the dough into shapes with cookie cutters and place them on an ungreased baking sheet. Bake the peanut butter dog treats for 30 to 40 minutes, or until they’re hard and crunchy. Allow them to cool completely and store them in an airtight container for several days, or in a baggie in the freezer for up to a month.
If rolling the dog treats out seems like too much work, just roll the dough into balls and space them about an inch apart on the baking sheet. Mash the balls flat with the bottom of a drinking glass, or by using a fork to make a criss-cross pattern in the top (similar to peanut butter cookies).
