Peanut Butter Dog Treats

This weekend, Shawn (my boyfriend) and I decided that our relationship revolves around food. We are always eating and if we're not eating we're talking about food. All of my favorite moments with him are usually involving food somehow. I am not sure if this is sad or pathetic or what but thats what we decided...that was just a sidenote.

To dogs! Kirby (my dog) loves food as much, if not more than Shawn and I. Okay so maybe it's not possible to like food more than we do but he's a pug so the little fatty will eat anything. Perhaps he gets it from his mama. He actually eats tomatos and grapes and snatched up a generous chunk of a poblano pepper that I dropped on the kitchen floor while making soup the other day.

Clearly, Kirby is special but he, like probably every dog on the face of the earth, looooves peanut butter. It makes him crazy. There's no point of even putting effort into trying to get him to do a trick with peanut butter involved because he fricken loses his mind and will do every trick he knows in one sloppy series of frantic movement regardless of what you tell him. You just know if he could talk he would yell "There! I did them all now give me the treat already!"

Speaking of tricks, Kirbs got a few good ones down...given that they aren't peanut butter treats. I am still working on some but this one is a work in progress but it is my favorite. :) (I pretend to shoot him and he "plays dead")

Peanut Butter Dog Treats


1 1/2 cups whole wheat flour
1 1/2 cups white flour
1/2 cup peanut butter (all-natural or organic)
1 cup water
2 tablespoons oil


Preheat the oven to 350 F. Combine oil, peanut butter and water. Add flour, one cup at a time, forming a dough. Knead dough into firm ball and roll to 1/4 inch thickness.

Cut into 3 to 4 inch pieces. Place on an ungreased cookie sheet. Bake at 350 F for 20 minutes. Makes 2 1/2 dozen cookies.
