Ever since I bought these cute little dog treat molds, I can’t seem to stop making him cute little treats in fun little shapes!

Treat-making a great activity with the little ones too, and these make fantastic gifts.

Best Kind of Peanut Butter for dogs:

  • All-natural peanut butter without added salt or sugar is best for dogs.
  • Do not use light or sugar-free peanut butter, as those may have artificial sweeteners (such as xylitol) which is toxic to dogs.
  • I like to use Teddy Smooth All-Natural Peanut Butter, which can also commonly be found in grocery stores.

Can Dogs Have Flour?

In short, yes. But flour can post an allergy to some dogs, and flour is certainly not a necessity in their diet, but rather is used as a binding agent in many treat recipes.

If possible, I recommend using Almond flour, because it’s healthy and easy to find at the grocery store.

Healthier Flour Alternatives for Dog Treats:

Grain: Barley, Buckwheat, Millet, Oat, Pea, Quinoa, Rice, Sorghum

Non-Grain: Chickpea, Coconut, Hazelnut, Lentil, Potato

Storage

  • Store in an airtight container at room temperature for up to 3 days.
  • Freeze for up to 3 months, removing them as you need them and letting them come to room temperature.

Dog Treats as Gifts:

  • These treats make fantastic gift ideas and are perfect for giving in these little canisters!
  • Treat-making and gift-giving is also a great activity for little ones, (with your assistance of course!)

  1. I didn’t have all natural but crunchy peanut butter. Is that a bad option?

  2. I made these without cutters but I rolled them into small balls. The outside is crusty but the inside is mushy. Is that ok? 

  3. Thank you. I’m going to try making some of these for my two girls (rescued Maltipoos). I hope they love them and I can stop buying the bagged treats. 🙂

  4. Wanted to make this recipe but almonds are toxic to dogs.  Not as toxic as a few other nuts, but still toxic.  

    • Hi Lesley, almond flour is generally considered safe for dogs. I recommend checking with your vet before introducing anything new but you should be fine using it. This recipe from Bobs Red Mill also calls for Almond Flour. Of course I wouldn’t recommend putting actual almonds in dog treats.

  5. This was my first ever attempt at making these types of treats for my dog! They were super easy and they turned out delicious. I even tried one very very good!

    • Hey Rachel! I’m so happy that your dog treats came out well!! I love making this recipe, (my dog loves when I make it even more)!- Thank you for taking the time to leave a comment and a rating, I really appreciate it! -Stephanie

  6. I am going to try this for my little fur baby. Thank you! ! ! My grandkids love to help me with cooking, and just having fun
