Homemade Dog Treats


                                        

We ran out of dog treats this week (most likely because the kids love doling them out every five seconds), and instead of hopping in the car and buying some, I thought, I'll make some!  Because that's what normal people do, right?

I found this recipe here, and thought it looked easy enough.  I decided to swap out peanut butter for the almond butter I had tried to pass off on the kids as peanut butter but they were not fooled by my trickery (very few are).  Here's the recipe I used:


Homemade Dog Treats

1/2 cup water
1/2 cup oil
2 eggs
4 tbsp. almond butter (or peanut butter)
1 tsp. vanilla
2 cups flour
1/2 cup oats
1/2 cup cornmeal

Blend the water, oil, eggs and vanilla together in a large mixing bowl.  In a smaller separate bowl, whisk together the flour, cornmeal, and oats and pour into the wet mixture.  Mix together.  Add in your almond (or peanut butter) and mix all the ingredients until it forms a dough.


Bake for 20 minutes at 400 degrees.  After the 20 minutes, turn the oven off and leave the treats in the oven until they are cool and crisp.

gotta let the dogs lick the bowl, right?  Don't judge!
The almond butter did leave the house kinda stinky, but the dogs gobbled these treats up like it was their last meal!

Enjoy and have a great weekend! We finally got enough snow to play in, so we will be outside building Olaf from Disney's Frozen.

  3. Home-made dog treat is good quality alternative, but I always prefer natural dog treats which I usually purchased it online for my boxer dog. These treats are unbelievable for dog, as they are full of in good physical shape ingredients and are often packed full of fruits, vegetables and whole grains.

  6. I am in totally compliance with you!!! These natural rawhide bones are great! My dogs actually look forward to having them around bedtime. If I get busy or forget they will paw at the box. Calming and relaxing but doesn’t “put them out” A nice way to end the evening.
