Peanut Butter Dog Treats

Peanut Butter Dog Treats/24 Carrot Kitchen

When working with a dog trainer recently, it was explained to me that certain treats have higher value to dogs than others.  I should mention that this wonderful trainer believes in positive gentle training and Dino is responding wonderfully.  I have noticed that these particular peanut butter dog treats I am posting about today fall into the “high value” treats category.  In other words, he comes running when he sees them!

I would like to show you a place I go to -

There is a lovely foot bridge which Dino loves. Did I tell you we think he might be a “bagel”? That would be a cross between a beagle and a basset hound (mostly basset though). Those roots in the photo are sometimes hard to walk on!


This is a great place near where I live that is great for walks.  It just happens to be a great place to take dogs, so you will often see many people and dogs walking around.

Lots of trails, a big open field for running and walks along the water.

What I love is that there are many options, a big field, a stone wall, the woods, a big reservoir to walk along, an aqueduct to walk across and even a beach if you walk far enough.

There is something special here. Can you see it? Off there in the distance?

It’s a Charlie Brown Christmas Tree!

There is something special about this tree.

There are memorials to best friends who have left us.

This is a special place and I hope you have a special place that you can go to.  I have noticed that whenever I see friends or neighbors here they are always smiling and happy.  It believe it is important to connect with nature, breathe and take a moment away from the day-to-day routine.  Especially this month and this time of year. I hope you take some time for yourself.

I hope your holiday season is filled with joy and peace and love.  These are the exact words on my Christmas card this year and I sincerely wish this for you as well!

Maybe you know someone looking for “high value” dog treats!

Serves: 12
Delicious "high value" peanut butter dog biscuit treat!
  • One Egg
  • ⅓ cup peanut butter
  • 1 cup whole wheat flour
  • ½ cup banana mashed (I used ½ banana)
  • 1 tablespoon honey
  • ½ cup flaxseed meal (or can use wheat germ)
  • pinch salt
  • 1 egg white for brushing on biscuits prior to putting in the oven
  1. Preheat oven to 300 degrees F.
  2. Place all ingredients in the bowl of an electric mixer and mix for about a minute on medium. You could also mix by hand, but it is much easier for me using the electric mixer.
  3. Roll out onto a floured board to about ½ inch thickness and using a cookie cutter, cut out shapes and place on baking sheet lined with parchment paper.
  4. Bake for about 20-30 minutes until lightly browned and slightly hardened.
  5. Cool for about 20 minutes. Store in an airtight container. Freshness will vary - mine lasted about a week.

    What an adorable and cute dog, Dino is a lovely name! Great field for Dino to explore around – dogs love big fields! I can’t believe there’s a Charlie Brown Xmas tree, that’s too awesome!

      Hi Rika,

      Thanks! It’s a great tree and I thought this was perfect time to share it even thought the tree is up all year round. :)

    These are so cute! I had no idea certain treats had higher value to dogs but I can imagine a fresh homemade treat is at the top.

    That tree was so beautiful, thanks for sharing. I lost my first pup back in May and it was the hardest thing I’ve had to go through. I love that there is a place like that, where others can go and feel comfort from their loss.

      Hi Sarah,

      I am sorry to hear you lost your pup. It is so hard I know. It’s a wonderful tree and I thought others would love it too.

      Happy Holidays!
