There are many ‘human foods’ that dogs can safely eat, including, but not limited to, cooked chicken and salmon and sliced apples. However, there is one particular ‘human food’ that is both safe and beneficial for dogs and the best part is that most dogs love this treat – peanut butter!
This peanut spread is beneficial for dogs for different reasons. First, peanut butter is rich in Vitamin E, which will help your dogs’ immune system. Vitamin E can help fight against pesky diseases and illnesses. Furthermore, peanut butter also contains a good amount of Vitamin H, which will aid your dogs’ coat and skin. This particular vitamin helps maintain your dogs’ fur coat shiny and healthy, while also strengthening nails. The best part is, this recipe can also help you sneak in some fish oil without your dog noticing it, which will furthermore enhance your dogs’ coat and skin!
Before jumping into the recipe for the delicious treats your dogs will enjoy, it is important to note that not all types of peanut butter are equally made, and, therefore safe for you canine friends. Some highly processed peanut butters found in the market contain certain chemicals and toxins that aren’t good for either humans and dogs alike, which highlights the importance of investing in an organic, quality peanut spread that will surely satisfy your sweet ravings while remaining on the healthy side. You could also make your own spread by mixing in a food processor peanuts and peanut oil and making your own raw one!
1/3 cup of smooth organic peanut butter
1 1/2 cups of water
2 cups of flour (could be either white or wheat, but ensure your dog isn’t allergic to wheat
before attempting to use it)
1 tablespoon of honey
1 cup of rolled oats
1/2 tablespoon of fish oil
1. First, preheat your oven to 35o degrees Fahrenheit.
2. Second, mix both the flour of your choice and the rolled oats together in a mixing bowl.
Slowly pour in one of the cups of water while blending. Add the honey, peanut butter,
and fish oil and mix together until well blended.
3. Slowly pour in the remaining cup of water until the mix becomes thick.
4. Put some flour in a cooking surface and begin rolling the dough until you create about
1/4 inch thick sheet.
5. Create any preferred shape with a cookie cutter, place them in a non-stick or coated
baking sheet, and bake them for 40 mins or until golden.
Now wait until the cookies are completely cool and feed some to your furry best friend!
