Peanut Butter Dog Treats
Be sure your peanut butter does not contain artificial sweeteners such as Xylitol, as it is dangerous for pets. Artificial sweeteners may be potentially toxic, and we all know dogs do not thrive on artificial additives and colourants.
Preheat oven: 375 F | Baking time: 25 min | Baking time: 18 to 20 min
- 1 1/2 cup / 135 g old fashioned oats, ground
- 1/2 cup / 125 g peanut butter, at room temperature
- 1/2 cup / 120 g sweet potato, baked
- 2 tbsp coconut oil, melted
- 2 tbsp cold water
In a large bowl, combine the ground oats, water, melted oil, peanut butter and sweet potato until well mixed.
The batter will be thick and sticky. (You can use a stand mixer.)
Press the dough together with your hands to form a ball.
Sprinkle a handful of flour on a flat working surface and place the ball.
Knead the dough for a few minutes until smooth.
Sprinkle more flour if necessary.
Flatten with a rolling pin – the dough should be 1/2 inch thick.
Press in with a bone-shaped cookie cutter or any other shape.
Cut out the ‘bones’ and place them on a baking sheet.
Scraps of dough can be formed into a ball and re-rolled.
Bake until golden.
Transfer to a wire rack until completely cool.
Store in an airtight container for up to 2 weeks.
