GirlA is always sharing her favorite vegan recipes in The Dairy Free Diva Recipe Exchange, and to celebrate her cute pooch turning 4, she made Moe a All Natural Dog Treat, offering lots of different recipes, including a grain-free peanut butter recipe. These treats will keep at room temperature for 2-3 weeks, or 6 weeks in the refrigerator. They are also freeze-able and . . . Moe-Approved.
Keep reading for both the recipe and a cute picture of the birthday boy.
Sorry about the duck, folks. But Moe knows we don’t eat meat and that his birthday present — turned 4 earlier this month — is just for pretend.
1-1/2 C whole wheat flour
1-1/2 C white flour
1/2 C organic, all-natural peanut butter
1 C water
2 Tbs oil
Preheat oven to 350. Using a mixer, combine the water, oil and peanut butter; cream until mixed well. Add the flours one cup at a time. You will have a crumbly mixture. This is where poked his head into the kitchen, fully aware that I was making something with his most favorite and beloved ingredient. He stuck by my side in the kitchen until The Husband took him for a walk.
Press together tightly to form a hard ball.
I then divided the dough in half so that it’s easier to work with. Just work a little quickly as the other half of the dough will start to get a bit drier. Roll out to a 1/4″ thickness and cut into 3-4″ shapes. I used a pizza cutter to make little squares. Obviously, feel free to make any size or shape that your pup’s little heart desires.
This is just half the dough—I ended up with twice this much. Place on an ungreased cookie sheet and bake for 20 minutes. Hopefully, the peanut butter smell in the house isn’t torturing Moe, but at least he gets these all-natural treats to make up for it!
