treats for toaster

being newlyweds, we knew we were going to have to be really careful with our money, so we cut our spending where we could. we finally realized when we were giving our dog ice cubes as treats, maybe we needed to loosen up some! so, feeling sorry for toaster (yes, TOASTER- like toaster oven, toaster strudel, hey could you put my bagel in the toaster) i decided to make him some homemade treats. they are yummy but more importantly affordable, and he loves them! here’s how:


2 cups whole wheat flour

1 tb baking powder

1/2 cup molasses

1 cup peanut butter

1 cup milk

mix all the ingredients in a bowl until all the batter is smooth. place on a lightly floured surface and roll out to about 1/4″ thick. use any shape cookie cutters you like to cut them out, then place them on a lightly greased baking pan. bake at 375 for 15-20 minutes and you’re done!

i make them in bulk and freeze the extras so refills are easy. also, you can leave the molasses out if you don’t have any. all natural and inexpensive treats- sure does beat those ice cubes!

  • I can’t wait to try these out for my babies. Like you, we have resorted to giving doggy bone shaped ice cubes to our dogs, but now that it’s cold out I want to give them a special treat. These are going to be great. Thanks for the recipe :D

  • ‘Mornin Bonnie,
    We have 2 English Golden’s & have recently moved from Greenville, South Carolina (Hincappie cyclist), to Knoxville, TN. I am pleased that you are such a “giving/sharing person”; has Toaster had any illnesses that are puzzling? Both our Golden’s are allergic to wheat & we would have to sub. something for the Whole Wheat flour, we love the sound of your recipe.
    Our Golden’s had such marathon itching/scratching sessions that we were able to diagnose the allergy ourselves with the process of elimination. Also an FYI, although you are a good “puppy mama” in caring for Toaster, do you know that any of the “RED” treats/foods are deadly for dogs plus anything from China. Love your musings.

    • hi barbara! we love greenville and the hincappie team! toaster has not had any strange illnesses. we also never give red treats, only these homemade ones! best of luck!
