Sharing a very easy, four-ingredient recipe for peanut butter and zucchini dog treats today.
When you’ve made all the zucchini cake, bread, and muffins you can stand, these Peanut Butter and Zucchini Dog Treats are a great and unique option to take advantage of a bountiful zucchini crop.
- Zucchini - Uses about one medium zucchini grated.
- Creamy Peanut Butter - I used Jif Natural Creamy Peanut Butter. Look for a peanut butter with a simple ingredient list and be sure to avoid any containing artificial sweeteners.
- Whole Wheat Flour - King Arthur White Whole Wheat Flour is my go-to. Whole wheat flour has more nutrients than all-purpose flour.
- Cinnamon - Just a little pinch, can omit if desired.
- Preheat oven to 350F. Line a cookie sheet with parchment paper or a silicone baking mat.
- Combine all ingredients in a large bowl and mix until a dough forms. You can do this by hand or using a stand-mixer.
- Knead dough on a floured surface. Roll peanut butter zucchini dough out to a ½” thickness.
- Cut with 2” cookie cutters. Different size cookie cutters may be used but cooking time is based on 2" pieces.
- Bake for 10-15 minutes.
How do I store the dog treats?
I like to store these dog treats in the refrigerator as they are a softer dog treat, best if used in one week. If you store them at room temperature, best if used in three days. They can be frozen as well.
Is zucchini safe for dogs?
According to the American Kennel Club zucchini is a low calorie nutritious vegetable that may be consumed within moderation. Of course each dog is unique, so if you have any concerns about what to feed your dog it is always best to check with your veterinarian first.
