Peanut Butter Applesauce Dog Treats Recipe Ingredients:
1 ½ cups creamy peanut butter (I use “natural” Skippy)
1 ½ cups old fashioned oats
1 ¼ cups unsweetened applesauce
3 cups whole wheat flour
1 tsp baking powder
How to Make Peanut Butter Applesauce Dog Treats:
Preheat oven to 350-degrees Fahrenheit.
Mix all ingredients together.
If the dough is too dry- add more applesauce.
It’s going to be a dense dough.
Flour your counter/surface and roll out the dough to 1/2-inch thick.
Cut the dough with a cookie cutter (I prefer to use dog bone/paw shapes for treats.) or roll into Tablespoon sized balls.
Place the dough on baking sheets lined with silicone or parchment paper and bake for 20-25 minutes or until lightly browned.
The longer they bake, the crunchier they are, so it’s really up to your dog’s preferences.
They also get crunchier after they’ve cooled, so keep that in mind.
Store in an airtight container for up to one week.
Fido will be ready to learn new tricks, snuggle or just wag his tail to get these Peanut Butter Applesauce dog treats.
They’re so easy; you’ll be ready to get up and make your furry friend a fresh batch.
How to Store Dog Treats:
These dog treats should be stored just like cookies, in an airtight container for up to two weeks, or the refrigerator, for up to one month.
You can also place dog treats in a freezer-safe container and freeze them for up to 6 months.
They Make a Great Gift!
We think they are the perfect treat.
During the holidays, we love to bake batches of these and bag them up with cute labels to hand out to all of Bailey Mae and Jeb’s dog friends.
The humans think this is a great gift, and it’s so easy and budget-friendly!
Please remember to consult with your pet’s veterinarian to assess any possible allergies your pet may have prior to changing its diet.
Your dog’s nutritional needs will vary based on age, breed, and other factors.
Your vet can give you the best advice on what type of treats are best for your dog.
If you don’t have access to a vet, try your local pet specialty store.
We have no doubt, your pups will love these homemade dog treats as much as Bailey Mae and Jeb do!
