If you love your puppy as much as we do then I’m sure your concerned about the kind of foods and treats they consume. Well what better way to know exactly what’s in their treats than to make it yourself?! I’ve never met a dog who doesn’t love peanut butter, so these are perfect and so easy. You could also use almond or cashew butter, whatever you prefer. I make mine in my awesome blendtec blender but you could use your food processor, kitchen aid, or mix it by hand. The recipe only has four ingredients and your pup will love it! These also make great gifts!

Ingredients

1/2-1 tbsp. milk (depending on consistency)
1 cup peanut butter (or other nut butter)
1 tbsp. baking powder
2 cups whole wheat flour

Preheat oven to 375°F. Add milk and peanut butter to blender, mixer, etc. and cream together. Add baking powder and 1 cup flour and mix until ingredients are incorporated. Use spatula to scrape sides, and add remaining flour, mixing until ingredients are incorporated. Turn out dough onto lightly floured surface. Roll out to a thin even layer and cut out dough with cookie cutter (I got mine at Michales Martha Stewart makes them in all sizes). Place on greased baking sheet, and bake for 20 minutes or until golden brown. Store in an airtight container and keep your husband away from them, they’re for the dog!
