We have an adorable Labrador retriever, better known around here as Dizzy Miss Izzy. Her antics keep us on our toes, and since she is family she deserves to be treated like family. When it comes to our dog Izzy’s diet, we love feeding her quality foods, like these Easy Homemade Peanut Butter Dog Treats.
This post is part of a social shopper marketing insight campaign with Pollinate Media Group® and The J.M. Smucker Company, but all my opinions are my own. #pmedia #miloskitchen http://my-disclosur.es/OBsstV
Homemade Peanut Butter Dog Treats
Our puppy has her own hashtag: #DizzyMissIzzy. So it’s no surprise we love to spoil her with these easy homemade peanut butter dog treats. But these are no ordinary dog snacks as they are studded with bits of Milo’s Kitchen Grilled Chicken Strips!
How to Make Homemade Healthy Dog Treats:
Easier to make than cut out sugar cookies, these baking treats for dogs just entail a little mixing, rolling and cutting out with bone or even dog shaped cookie cutters. After a short stint in the oven, and some time to cool, your pooch will be dying to sample one!
Izzy could barely contain herself when I placed one in her food bowl. It disappeared as quick as a wink. And there was lots of smacking and licking of her doggy muzzle even after her bone was inhaled. I think that’s a thumb’s up equivalent from our pup.
Milo’s Kitchen Home-Style Dog Treats
Dogs deserve treats made with the same quality of ingredients that you want to serve the rest of your family. Milo’s Kitchen Home-Style dog treats are made with 100% real chicken, beef, duck or sweet potato as the #1 ingredient. These are exactly the kind of treats we love to buy for Izzy. So it was no surprise that I wanted to add these quality snacks to Izzy’s diet. Just look how thrilled she is!

I picked up 3 varieties: Milo’s Kitchen Chicken & Apple Sausage Slices, Chicken Grillers Recipe and Steak Grillers Recipe. Stock up for those times you want to reward your pup, and also to make these easy homemade peanut butter dog treats. Izzy barely took time to chew, she loved this recipe for homemade dog biscuits.
Tips for Healthy Dogs
At 2 years, old Izzy has definitely worked her way into our hearts. Just like when we were raising our children, she gets lots of TLC. A few things we do to keep Izzy healthy are:
- We take her to the vet for regularly scheduled appointments to keep her vaccinations up to date. She’s seen at least once a year by our vet.
- We make sure she gets plenty of exercise which for Izzy includes daily walks when possible.
- We feed her quality dog food.
- We don’t feed her table scraps as many human foods are not good for dogs. Izzy likes bites of apple, raw sweet potato, and raw carrots for healthy treats. All vet approved.
- We make sure her snacks are top notch, too, like these Milo’s Kitchen home-style dog treats and homemade peanut butter dog treats. Remember to read the labels.
- We also keep an ample supply of fresh water available.
If you want to spoil your furry friend, bake up some of these Izzy approved Homemade Peanut Butter Dog Treats!
- 2 cups whole wheat flour, plus more for dusting
- 1/2 cup old-fashioned oatmeal
- 1 tablespoon baking powder
- 1 cup chicken broth
- 1 cup creamy peanut butter
- 1/4 cup chopped Milo's Kitchen home-style dog treats (I used Milo's Kitchen Grilled Chicken Strips)
Preheat to 375º degrees. Line baking sheet with parchment paper. Set aside.
In a large bowl, combine the flour, oats and baking powder. Stir in the broth and peanut butter until the mixture forms a crumbly dough. Press the dough together to form a ball.
On a lightly floured work surface, knead the dough for 30 seconds until smooth. Roll out the dough into a 10-inch circle, about 1/2-inch thick. Using a bone-shape cookie cutter, cut out bones and place on the prepared baking sheet (any scraps of dough can be formed into a ball and re-rolled). Press bits of Milo's Kitchen home-style dog treats onto the surface of the bones.
Bake until light golden, 20 minutes. Turn off oven and let the treats continue to cook for another 20 minutes. Transfer to a wire rack and cool completely.
Store in an airtight container for up to 1 week or store in the freezer up to 3 months
