Peanut Butter Dog Biscuits
with Molasses

Peanut Butter: Have you ever met a dog who doesn't like it? That's why these peanut butter dog biscuits with molasses is a great recipe to try. Even though dogs don't need added sugar to make their treats delicious, molasses is a natural choice.

Ingredients are typically called natural if they are processed to the least amount. Unlike refined sugar, blackstrap molasses retains such vitamins and minerals as calcium, magnesium, potassium and iron.
