Obie, the obese Dachshund has lost over 40 pounds. What a wonderful family he has to take great care of him. I posted about Obie some time ago and thought it was time for a follow up.
3 Dog Treat Recipes made with Peanut Butter. My Dachshunds enjoy these treats and will do most any thing to get at them.
Peanut Butter Balls
1 tablespoon baking powder
2 cups whole wheat flour
1 ¼ cups creamy organic peanut butter
¾ cup whole milk
¼ cup mashed bananas
Preheat the oven to 375 degrees. Mix the whole wheat flour with the baking powder and set the dry mixture aside. Combine the creamy organic peanut butter with the mashed bananas. Add the milk and stir until the mixture resembles melted caramel. Slowly add the dry mixture ½ cup at a time. Once the flour mixture is beaten into the wet mixture, let it rest for five minutes.
Use a melon baller or hand form dough balls into 1-inch balls. Pop them into the oven for 20 minutes. Allow them to cool for at least an hour before letting your pooch have his homemade snack. Keep the treats in an airtight container or a trusty zipper bag so that they will stay fresh for a month.
Peanut Butter Sandwich Cookies
½ cup peanut oil
½ cup room-temperature water
2 whole eggs
2 teaspoons vanilla extract
¼ cup creamy organic peanut butter
1 cup cornmeal
2 cups whole wheat flour
Preheat the oven to 400 degrees. Mix the cornmeal and whole wheat flour and set it aside. Then combine the peanut oil and water with the vanilla extract. Now cream the peanut butter with the eggs. Add the liquid mixture ¼ cup at a time until it is all looking like melted caramel. Very slowly add the flour mixture ½ cup at a time until all ingredients are combined. Place the mixture in the refrigerator for 15 minutes. Knead the dough and, using a rolling pin, roll the dough out to ¼ inch thin. Cut the dough into 1-inch squares. Spray the cookie sheet with cooking spray and place the biscuits 1 inch apart on the sheet. Bake them for 20 minutes. Be sure to allow the biscuits to cool thoroughly before feeding any to your dog. Store them in an airtight container or inside a zipper bag.
Frozen Peanut Butter Treats
1 cup peanut butter
1 16-ounce container vanilla or plain yogurt
2 ice cube trays
This is the easiest dog treat recipe with peanut butter, and won’t take much time or effort at all. Simply microwave 1 cup of creamy organic peanut butter for one minute and 30 seconds. Mix it with the yogurt until it is completely blended. Pour the mixture into the ice cube trays and place them in the freezer. Leave them in the freezer overnight, and your pup will enjoy the treats for days to come.

I really enjoy the food and the people that work there too.
Did you know the part of Dorothy’s pet dog in “The Wizard of Oz” was originally scripted for a dachshund named “Otto”?
