Powdered Peanut Butter for Homemade Dog Treats

by Jennifer Polovitch

I purchased two varieties of peanut butter powder from a nutrition store. Have you ever used this in any of your baking? I am going to double check the ingredients, to ensure that they are not too processed. Will let you know.

Also, I am thinking of making a "snickerdoodle" type recipe for my dog. I know that potatoes are not good for him, but what about sweet potatoes? He loves veggies, and loves sweet potatoes.

I'm wonder if I combine some sweet potatoes, some molasses and some cinnamon with oatmeal...sounds tasty. What do you think?

Chef's Answer ~ Wow! Powdered peanut butter sounds so much fun to experiment with! I must admit, I'm a little ingredient jealous at the moment! :) I've never used powdered peanut butter, but I can't wait to hear how you like it and what you've made with it.

Sweet potatoes are great for dogs. They are high in fiber and low in fat, a winning combination. They also contain natural sugars that most dogs love. They are also very versatile in dog treat recipes.

I think your list of ingredients for a future dog treat recipe sounds delicious, you have a very fortunate dog, and I look forward to hearing how the recipes work out for you.

Happy Dog Treat Baking! :)

Homemade peanut butter

I found it hard to source a peanut butter without any nasties. Even so called natural products had some element of salt and/or sugar or preservative.

My solution is to purchase unsalted raw peanuts and oven roast them myself. I then put the cooled nuts through the finest grater on a food processor. You have to remove the skins first or you get a gritty, two tone peanut butter. I remove the grater part and mix the ground peanut in the processor. You will need to add some oil to form a peanut butter, I use safflower, rice bran, canola or olive oil or a combination. I have been making treats for several months now and find this works really well as a peanut butter base for recipes. Hope this helps.

I have some of the peanut butter powder and cheese powder waiting to be tried myself. Maybe it would be fun to experiment with the flavors. Good luck with your treats.
