My dogs love treats of all kinds, they're not picky, but they especially love the crunchy ones. They're not tiny dogs so BIG crunchy goodies are even better and this recipe is one of their favorites especially when I use my large dog bone cookie cutter.

And it's not just the dogs that love these. I don't eat them (although I could if I wanted to, all ingredients are human-grade and delicious in their own right) but I know what goes into them, and every single ingredient is healthy and nutritious. For me, this is one of the best things about making dog treats at home. Peace of mind.

That, and happy dogs of course!

Warning:

Remember to double check that your peanut butter does NOT contain Xylitol. This sweetener is toxic to dogs. Peanut butter doesn't need to contain anything other than peanuts!

Sometimes I brush egg white onto these treats before I put them in the oven, it gives them a shiny appearance when baked. My dogs don't care either way but I like to change things up now and then!

These multi grain and peanut butter dog treats smell delicious when they're in the oven, and to be honest even the raw dough smells good. If your dog is like mine, he'll be standing guard waiting for these beauties to be ready to eat.
