DIY: Dog Treats

If you have read about the Frilly Farm Dog, you know that Lucy is quite spoiled ... precious, but spoiled.

So, it is only right that she gets homemade dog treats, right?

I found a couple of different recipes on pinterest and combined them to make something I thought Lucy would actually eat!

All you need is wheat flour, peanut butter or baby food ... it really is as simple as that!

For the first batch, I went with baby food.

Ingredients Needed:
2 cups all wheat flour
8 ounces of baby food (I went with banana)

First, preheat the oven to 350F and mix all the ingredients together. It will be a really stiff mix, but that is what you want. After you get it mixed well, roll the dough out flat and use cookie cutters to cut out designs. If you don't want to hassle with the cookie cutters, you can just cut small squares. Place the treats on a cookie sheet and back for 20-25 minutes and let them cool ... that is it!

For the second batch, I went with peanut butter!

Ingredients Needed:
2 cups all wheat flour
8 oz of creamy peanut butter

You basically do the same thing as with the banana treats. However, instead of rolling out the dough, I just dropped small balls of the dough and used a fork to make them look just like (human) peanut butter cookies. Bake at 350F for 20-25 minutes!

Each batch made a least three dozen treats. We had treats running out our ears, so we packaged some up for our doggy cousin's and friends.

Have you seen the no bake dog treats? That is on my "things to do" list ... but, I won't commit to any sort of time frame just yet! ;)

Happy Trails!
