Home made healthy dog treats with #AnimalTales

I made frozen yogurt and peanut butter cup cakes and parsley, oat and peanut butter biscuits for Bob on Sunday, all low fat.


For the cupcakes I used 1 pot of natural yogurt and half the amount of peanut butter, mixed, put in paper cake cases and put in the freezer over night.




For biscuits I used 2 cups of flour, 1 cup of peanut butter, 1 cup of oats, 1 tbs baking powder, 1 egg, splash of milk, handful of chopped fresh parsley. Mixed in blender, rolled out, cut and baked at 200c for 12 mins.

The parsley helps as a breath freshener, but you could use bacon bits as an alternative.

Make sure you wash the blender/bowl asap, as trying to remove peanut butter after an hour was hard work.




I'll bring bringing them to the lakes on friday am for a doggie tasting session. I've tried one, they're edible.


And of course I let Bob lick the bowl.


Bob loves his biscuits


And frozen yogurt treats



It would appear Mum has finished weaning the kittens, I saw her on saturday on her own further a field than normal. My son only spotted 2 of the kittens on Sunday, so armed with a torch and a tin of biscuits I went looking for them, 2 were playing in the garden, climbing trees and running around. Our cat was happy with them in the garden and stayed curled up on the sun lounger with one eye on them. I gave them some food and thankfully the 3rd kitten turned up. 



They are less timid without their mum around and let me get quite close to them.

  1. Bob is one very lucky dog. And those kittens are so cute... I don't think I'd be able to resist them either. Are there going to be any new feline additions to the house?

    1. we already have a cat, can't take in any more animals, due to the cost of taking them with us when we leave

  5. I am NOT letting Saari read this post or she'll have me making home-made treat for her, LOL. Lucky Bob and the frozen cupcake sound like a great idea for your hot climate.

    I am so glad the 3 kittens are safe and it looks like they may well become more friendly without Mum's nervous tendencies washing off on them. Looking forward to updates.

    Many thanks for adding your canine and feline updates to #AnimalTales

    1. I handed the biscuits out to Bob's doggy friends at the lakes this morning. I've not seen the kittens for a few days, but our local vet told me if i can catch them and bring them in she'll give them the op free of charge

    2. That's a kind offer - I hope you can find and catch them.

  7. Lovely looking biscuits :) My sis-in-law bought me a cooking for your dog book, Stella likes the slightly odd combination of chicken and strawberry treats.
