Soft peanut butter puppy treats


We have chosen to keep Ernie on an all natural, holistic, mostly grain free diet. I could go on and on about how terrible most pet foods are for your pets but I will save my rant for another day (email me if you have questions though!). We feed him Pinnacle, bought at an organic pet food store in Austin and we home make his treats. I normally make these treats for Ernie but was excited to come across another yummy looking recipe to try out. Ernie loved these new treats and my only drawback was they don't stay good for more than a week. I froze half and pop them in the fridge every few days when we are running low.

Ingredients
1 egg
1/3 cup chunky peanut butter, preferably organic or natural
1 overly ripe banana, mashed
2 tbsp honey
1 cup old fashioned oats
1/2 cup flour


1. Mix together egg, peanut butter, banana and honey
2. Stir in the oats and flour and mix well
3. Scoop 1 inch balls onto a greased baking sheet (I used a cookie scoop)
4. Bake at 350 degrees for 15 minutes or until golden brown
5. Immediately smash the cookie flat with a fork or spoon to make it easier for your pup to eat
6. Let fully cool before giving to your dog
7. Store in an airtight container or bag
8. Enjoy up to a week after you make them

So cool! I've thought about making Cooper and Grace dog treats, but I haven't ever actually done it! We feed our dogs Wellness, and as annoying as it is to shell out the extra money, it's worth it to us!

Awwww.........your such a sweet mama. We used to have an English bulldog and we want our next doggie to a French:) he's ao cute!!!!!

we feed our pup pedigree. While I'm not thrilled with it, the vet said he's healthy and to keep up what we're doing. I don't want to go switching foods now since pit bulls can have a lot of allergy issues.

I may try the treats though!

Yummy! I bet Ernie was a very happy pup!

Huckleberry eats all organically too, and I also make his treats! He LOVES sweet potatoes so I make him yummy sweet potato treats :)

Not going to lie, but I think that I would eat these....Maybe if I'm a good furmom I'll bake these for Louie for Xmas.

I've been wanting to make puppy treats our little Rayne for so long. I need to get on that.
Love this easy recipe you shared! We try to keep Rayne on a good pet food too, just wish it wasn't so pricey, ahh!

Chara would LOVE these. She's obsessed with peanut butter!

Yum! :) I usually, around this time of year, make PB treats for our pups. Our budget is super tight this month, and it's our Lab's birth month. I was actually feeling guilty we didn't have extra money to spend, but thanks for the reminder...PB is only, what $2 a jar? I can so do this. ;)

I love this recipe! Mr Howie will definitely be getting some of these soon! And I LOVE Ernie's face in the last picture! Priceless!

I'd love to hear your thoughts on different dog foods, you say to email you, but I can't find where!

My dog would love these treats. He usually likes crunchy, but I think since they have peanut butter in them he'll snarf them down just the same!
