The old “Apple a Day” mantra could be just as true for you pup as you! Apples are a great source of natural fiber, cancer-fighting nutrients and not to mention Vitamins A & C! Reward your pup with a crunchy, healthy treat with these easy and cute Apple Peanut Butter Dog Treats from Aimee at Irresistible Pets! Follow her simple recipe below!
Ripe Green or Red Apple (s)
Small Apple Shaped Cookie Cutter
How Much Does it Cost?
This project cost me $3 for the set of Wilton Harvest Mini Cookie Cutter Set I purchased at Ross. I already had apples and peanut butter in my kitchen. So, if you already have the cookie cutter, it’s FREE!
Learn how to make these Apple Peanut Butter Dog Treats as pictured below. If you want to learn more, keep reading!
Using a potato peeler, remove the skin of the apple.
Using a knife, cut the apple in slices.
Take your apple shaped cookie cutter and cut out apple shapes from the slices.
Dab a little peanut butter on the “stems” of the apple shaped treats. I used a chop stick to apply the peanut butter.
Serve and enjoy! Since apples can go bad pretty quickly once cut, I would suggest giving your pet a couple (based on their size) and enjoy the rest or share with your kids!
Bone Appétit & Enjoy!
