DIY Apple Peanut Butter Dog Treats

Tomorrow is the first official day of Fall! Aren’t you excited? Chuy and I are loving these cooler temperatures. Fall weather means more walks together and of course all the yummy Fall flavored treats! Apples are a Fall must have, so I made these yummy apple peanut butter dog treats that both you and your pet can enjoy on a cozy, cool Fall afternoon!

A note about apples from Modern Dog Magazine:

Apples are wonderful crunchy treats for your dog. Apples with the skin on are full of plant chemicals (phytonutrients) that are thought to be protective against some types of cancer in humans. They are a source of vitamins A and C and fibre. Apple seeds, however, contain cyanide so your dog should not be allowed to eat the core. Though the effects of a few apple seeds will likely not harm your dog, the deleterious effects can accumulate over time if allowed to eat apple seeds regularly.

Step Five

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!

    Chuy is darling. My little dog won’t take homemade treats any more, because she always thinks her medicine is hiding in it. She’s all like,”Thanks, no, but can I have a Milk Bone?”

    Our old Sheltie, who passed away five years ago this Halloween, would have loved these. Thanks for bringing back the memory of his precious love and faithfulness.

    Stopping by from the Sits Girls Blogging Challenge from yesterday. Just adorable! My greyhound and kiddos will love this. Okay my greyhound will love anything, but my kids can be picky. It’s nice to kill to birds with one stone!

    Have a great weekend!

    I love that these are kid safe and dog safe – so kiddos can share their snacks with their pup. I’m featuring this in my Apple Tot School post on Saturday! Thanks for linking up. #supermommyclub
