My puppy dog’s cupboard was bare so I either had to go to the store and buy dog treats or fire up the oven and make my own so I decided on these Peanut butter and Banana Dog Treats.

Even though these are dog treats my wife and I always try the finished product and I thought these were pretty good – my wife thought they were the best yet, so “Hunter”, our English setter, may have some competition for these. LOL

Recipe type: Homemade Dog Treats
Ingredients
  • ¼ cup peanut butter
  • ⅔ cup pumpkin puree
  • 2 large eggs
  • 3 cups whole wheat flour (plus ¼ extra on standby if needed)
Instructions
  1. Preheat oven to 350F.
  2. Line a large baking sheet with parchment paper. (I used a 16x12 baking sheet - a little bigger would be better)
  3. Place the eggs, peanut butter, and pumpkin in a stand mixer bowl fitted with the paddle attachment. Mix on high speed until well combined (about 2-3 minutes). Reduce mixer speed to low and add the flour a ¼ cup at a time until dough is no longer sticky-add more flour if needed. Dough will separate from the sides of the bowl when ready.

  5. Place dough on a lightly floured surface and need by hand until dough comes together (my dough was still a little sticky so I added a little more flour at this time).
