We All Love Peanut Butter

How anyone could not love peanut butter just astounds me.  It’s one of my favorite things, morning, noon, or night.  When I first set out at making dog treats, I found a plethora of peanut butter dog treat recipes.  Sometimes, animals just know a good thing when they see it. This is what happens when you make Sunshine peanut butter dog treats:

She may look like she’s sitting patiently, waiting for her treat, but that lasts about a second before the jumping starts and her yippy demanding begins.  Then, she takes it, runs into the other room and devours it.  Too cute for words sometimes.

These treats come together quickly but need to bake for 40 minutes so that they’re crunchy.  They also come together in one bowl, like the baby food dog treats, so making your favorite four-legged friend delicious baked goods really doesn’t require much clean up.  I cut these into hearts in celebration of Valentine’s Day coming up, but you can use any shape you like.

Peanut Butter Oatmeal Dog Treats


  • 2 C. flour
  • 1 C. rolled oats
  • 1/3 C. peanut butter (creamy or chunky)
  • 1 1/4 C. hot water


Heat oven to 350 degrees.

Mix dry ingredients together in a large bowl.

Mix in the peanut butter and water.  You may need to add more water if the dough is too sticky.

Knead the dough and roll out to 1/4 inch thickness on a floured surface.

Cut into desired shapes and place on a lightly greased cookie sheet.

Bake for 40 minutes.  Cool on a wire rack completely before serving.

I Wanna Be Your Dog

I made dog treats at Christmas time for my many four-legged friends and they were very well-received.  I figured I’d try out a new recipe on Sunshine, and I’m happy to report, it was met with rave reviews:

These dog treats start out with jarred baby food (you could certainly make your own for the occasion as well), which makes them very adaptable.  They also come together in one bowl, so there’s little mess to deal with.  I also made Sunshine some more of the peanut butter treats she loved at Christmas, and they’ll be posted soon as well.


Baby Food Dog Treats


  • 3 2.5 oz jars baby food (I used chicken)
  • 1/4 C. cream of wheat
  • 1/4 C. dry milk powder


Heat oven to 350 degrees.

In a bowl, combine all ingredients and mix thoroughly until a dough forms.

Knead the dough with your hands and dump out onto a floured surface.

Spray a baking sheet lightly with non-stick cooking spray.

Roll the dough out into 1/4 inch thickness and cut into desired shapes.

Place on the prepared cookie sheet.

Bake for 15 minutes, or until golden brown.

Cool completely and store in an airtight container.
