From the good folks at 12 Tomatoes, a dog treat recipe they say will improve overall skin and coat health (it moisturizes and reduces itchiness due to allergies or eczema), and it’s also been linked to preventing diabetes and heart disease.
Peanut Butter Coconut Oil Dog Treats
Yield: depends on size of ice cube trays
1 cup all-natural peanut butter
1 cup pure, unprocessed coconut oil
1 teaspoon cinnamon
silicon ice cube tray (we love our paw print tray!)
If your coconut oil is not already liquid, place it in a medium saucepan over medium-low heat and cook until melted.
Add in peanut butter and cinnamon and stir until mixture is completely smooth and incorporated. Note: mixture should be thick, but pourable.
Pour mixture into silicone ice cube trays and refrigerate or freeze until set.
Pop dog treats out and serve them to your pup! (Store in an air-tight container and keep in refrigerator.)
*For exact coconut oil measurements, we use 1 teaspoon per 10 pounds dog’s body weight, or 1 tablespoon per 30 pounds. **Start with about 1/4 dose of coconut oil and gradually increase over the course of several weeks so your pup can get acclimated.
Until next time,
Good day, and good dog!
