I don’t have a dog.
Nope, I’m more of a fish tank kind of gal…when I can keep them alive, that is. Those poor little fish!
I’m not even terribly interested in getting a dog, only partially because of the fact that I can barely keep fish alive. But my brother has a dog and my boys are starting to like her…well as long as she stays at least 3 feet away from them at all times. Ha!
Since they sorta like Tetra now, my boys wanted to make her some dog treats for her birthday. Tetra, like many dogs, loves peanut butter, so these treats were perfect for her!
My boys both love the fact that the treats they made are Terta’s “potty treats”. My older son will even give her a treat now…as long as she’s securely in her kennel first!
*If you don’t have any bacon drippings lying around, use canola oil instead
Peanut Butter Dog Treats
Adapted from White on Rice Couple
1 1/3 cups whole wheat flour
½ cup old fashioned oats
¼ tsp sea salt
1/3 cup natural peanut butter
2 tbsp bacon drippings, melted
½ tbsp honey
1/3 cup warm water
Preheat the oven to 350 degree F. Line baking sheets with parchment paper.
Place the flour, oats, and salt together in the bowl of a mixer and stir to combine.
Add the peanut butter, bacon drippings, egg, honey, and enough water to make a nice pliable dough.
Sprinkle a rolling mat with flour and roll to dough to a 1-inch thickness. Cut the dough into desired shapes and place on the prepared baking sheets.
As you press together and re-roll the dough, you may need to add additional water to keep the dough pliable.
Bake in the preheated oven for 30 minutes or until deeply browned and hardened.
My fiance and I cannot WAIT to get a dog. We decided to hold off until we get a house, so hopefully soon! I have already decided that when I get one I am going to start coming up with my own dog treats, these look awesome!ReplyDelete

Fabulous- I have been wanting to do this. Just like the family I would love to move the animals off processed foods too. Anything without preservatives has got to be better than what I am giving them now. Thanks for the recipe.ReplyDelete
Great recipe! I am sure my Charlie Binks would love these- going to make these the next time I make bacon and have some drippings. :)ReplyDelete
