Most of you know that I love to bake just about anything.  Cakes, cookies, brownies, biscuits…it really doesn’t matter since it is all good in my book.  C & I try not to give our Siberian Husky, Ellie, table food so she won’t beg, but one of her favorite bedtime treats is peanut butter spread on a Kong toy.  She loves it!! 

I discovered this baked peanut butter dog treat at Brown Eyed Baker and decided to try it.  Ellie loves dog biscuits and peanut butter and I love to bake, so why not combine the three?  I call these Peanut Butter Dog Cookies.  Ellie is licking her lips in anticipation already.

PB Dog Cookies

2 cups whole wheat flour

1 tbsp. baking powder

1 cup organic peanut butter

1 cup low fat milk

Preheat oven to 375 degrees.  Combine the flour and baking powder in a large mixing bowl and set aside.  Combine the milk and peanut butter, then pour the milk mixture into the flour mixture.  Mix well.

Turn out the dough onto a lightly floured surface and knead until thoroughly combined.  Roll out to a quarter inch thickness and cut out shapes.  I didn’t have a bone cookie cutter, so I just used a round biscuit cutter.  I may have to purchase a bone shaped one though because it would be really cute.  Bake each batch for 20 minutes or until lightly brown.  Cool completely then store at room temperature.

If you read my blog regularly, you will know that C & I are dog lovers.  Major dog lovers!  We have a Siberian Husky named Ellie that has us wrapped around her paw.  My in-laws have a Border Collie named Roy, that we help out with, too.  He is a ball of energy and loves attention.  I was browsing Pinterest one day (shocker, I know) and found a recipe for a homemade frozen dog treat on Hub Pages.

We had bought some frozen dog treats in the past, but when you check the ingredient label, you will find that most of the things on there are almost unpronounceable.  This homemade treat has only whole, simple ingredients that are good for your pets, especially during this extremely hot weather we have been having. 

All three dogs we have given these to (Ellie, Roy and my aunt’s dog, Maggie) have loved them! 

Frozen Dog Treats

32 oz. plain yogurt

1 mashed ripe banana

2 tablespoons peanut butter

2 tablespoons honey

Put all of the ingredients in the bowl of your mixer and combine thoroughly.  Fill up two ice cube trays with the mixture and freeze until hard.  I emptied them from the trays and kept them in one container in the freezer.
