Peanut Butter Powder for Dogs
We often use peanut butter powder for our own smoothies and have baked with it so thought about using it for a homemade dog treat recipe. Peanut butter powder is lower in calories and fat so can be a great ingredient if your dog is watching their weight!
Peanut butter powder is made from roasted peanuts and ground into a powder, removing the fat but keeps the protein.
Use plain peanut butter powder that is unsweetened and unflavored for a safe flour for your dog.
Remember to go slowly when introducing new foods. And we recommend checking with your veterinarian first if your dog has any digestive issues or other health concerns.
Just a handful of ingredients are used to make these peanut butter powder dog treats. The flavorings are optional. We add them to boost the nutritional content.
- Peanut Butter Powder - always check the ingredients on the label. There's a great 100% peanut brand we recommend in the recipe card.
- Pumpkin puree - we always use homemade
- Egg - a great source of protein
- Turmeric - for inflammation
- Sea Kelp - adds minerals and fiber to the dog treats.
How to Make PB and Pumpkin Dog Treats
We used our Dash Dog Treat maker for this recipe and made one batch of dog treats in the Dash maker.
They can be baked in the oven and there are instructions for this in the recipe card below.
Add all ingredients into a bowl
Mix the ingredients until blended and smooth
Spoon the mixture into the Dash maker
Cook until firm and golden
The mixture is fairly sticky but is easy to spoon into the Dash doggie treat maker. If you find it too thick, add water or another egg for a smoother batter.
Keep these homemade dog treats in the fridge in a sealed container. They will last up to 5 days.
Theses flourless treats are easy to freeze. Pop a few into a zip lock bag or air tight container and freeze up to 2 months. Defrost thoroughly before giving out a treat.
