4 ingredient homemade dog treats that take minutes to make!
Each year my kids want to celebrate our dog’s birthday, and we always go to the local pet shop and buy overly expensive dog treats for her special day. But I put a stop to that this year! Why spend $5.00 for 6 treats when I can make a whole batch AND stay in my jammies? I looked online and seen recipes with tons of ingredients and I thought I would do something simple and get creative. So here it is, let me know if your dog loves this homemade dog treat recipe (mine did!)
4 Ingredient DIY Dog Treat Recipe
1.5 cups flour
1 tablespoon baking powder
1 cup peanut butter
1 cup milk
Preheat oven to 375 degrees. Grease cookie sheet.
Mix dry ingredients thoroughly. Add wet ingredients to dry ingredients and mix well. It should be a thick ball of dough. I used my hands to knead the dough.
Dough should stick together, but not sticky or crumbly. If sticky, add more flour. If crumbly, add more peanut butter.
If you are using cookie cutters, roll out dough on greased counter to ¼- ½ inch thick and cut. I also tried making small balls and smashing them with my hands to make round cookies. No matter the shape or thickness, they all turned out!
Bake at 375 for 10-20 minutes until biscuits are golden brown. My oven bakes them to a perfect color in 15 minutes.
Please note: there are no preservatives in the treats, I put mine in the freezer and take them out as needed.
I used the regular peanut butter my family uses, but I see you can buy peanut butter that is made for dogs. Some even have extra ingredients to make their coat shiny, or aid in digestion. They are made in the USA!*
I also made many of the treats in a bone shape- too cute!
So when are you making your first batch? Make sure you comment and let me know what your dog thinks!
