Q: Do you have a recipe for peanut butter dog treats?

My dog likes the peanut butter dog treats found at our local convenience store. Looking for a recipe to make my own treats so I can make sure they're fresh and have no salmonella.

The recall so far as I know has NOT included regular peanut butter in a jar. We just give our dogs plain peanut butter in their Kongs - it's easy and putting it in the Kong makes it last a lot longer.

our dogs love these - Melt 1 T honey and 1 t peanut butter in the microwave. Add 3/4 c flour, 1 egg,1/4 c shortening, 1 t baking soda, 1/4 c oats and 1/2 t vanilla. Mix it up and place small bites on a baking sheet. Bake at 350 degrees for 8 to 10 minutes.

The peanut butter recall is EXTREMELY extensive right now.The FDA is advising any products that contain PB should be checked with their recall list and with the individual company's website. You might be better off waiting.

I make up all my dog treats including Peanut butter ones, cheese ones and vegetable ones. Here is the recipe I use for the peanut butter ones and in case you are worried about using peanut butter right now, I have also included the recipe for the cheese ones!
Peanut Butter Dog Treats..

1/2 c whole wheat flour
1/2 c all purpose flour
1 tbsp baking powder
1 cup peanut butter
3/4 cup milk

Combine 1st 3 ingredients. In a small bowl or large measuring cup whisk together the peanut butter and milk till smooth. Make well in center of flour mixture and add milk mixture gradually. Use hands to form two balls.
Knead each ball on a floured surface for 2 minutes. Roll out to 1/4 - 1/2" thickness and cut into shapes. Bake on a non-stick pan(or foiled) @ 400 degrees for 15 minutes. Cool and store in fridge.
~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~
Cheese Biscuits

1 cup flour
1 1/4 cup shredded cheese
2 cloves minced garlic
1 tbsp oil
1/2 cup milk
Mix all ingredients, make 2 balls, roll out to 1/4 - 1/2" thickness, cut into shapes, bake on sheet in 400 degrees for 10-15 minutes. Cool and refridgerate.
My dogs LOVE both of these recipes (and kids have too!)
Have another great one for Veggy ones if you want it too

1 1/2 cups of water
1/2 cup vegetable oil
2 eggs
2 Tsp vanilla
2 cups flour
3 TBSP peanut butter
1/2cup cornmeal
1/2 cup oatmeal

Whisk dry ingredients into wet forming into a ball of dough. Roll out about 1/2 inch thick piece and cut into desired shapes with cookie cutter is you want. Bake on ungreased, non-stick baking sheet at 400 degress F., for about 20 minutes. Shut oven off, leaving cookies in cooling oven until crispy. Store in airtight container. Since these treats have no preservatives, they have a short shelf life.

If your concerned about contaminated peanut butter, use a jar that you already have opened and know is safe.

I would stay away from ANY peanut butter for awhile, even the jar peanut butter. Some jars have been recalled but not the name brands. However, just like with Menu Foods, the poisoning continued and more recalls for quite a while.

The FBI is now called in. I am not an alarmist...just common sense, especially after all that went on with Menu Foods and the cover-up. And the same has been going on with peanut butter, although the government is finally taking steps.

So personally, I would lay low on peanut butter.
