Peanut Butter Balls
- Melt some peanut butter over a very low heat
- Gradually add low-fat milk until the mixture is the consistency of yoghurt
- Stir in a small amount oats or oat bran and mix until they are coated with the peanut butter mixture
- Keep mixing in small amounts of oats until the mixture is very thick like dough
- Roll this into marble-sized balls and place in the fridge to harden
These will keep for a week or more if stored in the fridge. If you have a dog that is lactose-intolerant, please use water instead of milk. Use oat bran for dogs who have problems with their anal glands.
Your dog is adorable! Purebred Bichon?
Hi! Yes, Casper is a Bichon. We rescued him when he was 6 months old, so he has some issues 😦
Well he is very cute. I love Bichons, and I think they are very quirky dogs (in my experience).
These look good. I hope my person will make some for me.
Sounds yummy. Tiffy will have to help me bake a batch for her:)
My Simba loves his peanut treats and I’ll be sure to make some of this for him. Thank you very much. 🙂
My dog Poppy has had a lot of trouble with her anal glands, so we have been trying to get more roughage into her diet, and these will be perfect for her – going to make some this afternoon! Thank you so much.
Hope she likes them! Mine can’t get enough of these. I think they are the firm favourite at our house. Hope they help Poopy’s glands. 🙂
Those are really great photos. The peanut butter balls sound yummy. I think my anal glands are ok but I better sniff them & see. I’ll check Angus’s too while I’m at it.
Oh…mmm…I might like to have some of those too! Madam Lasagna will enjoy them. They will work into her diabetic food plan. Thanks.
I have passed the recipe on to mom – she likes to bake for us and we love peanut butter anything! Thanks for sharing!
YUMM. My mom needs to make those for me and Torrey.
These look awesome … how do you know which kind of oats to get??
I think any kind of oat will do! I used oat bran this time, which is the smaller rougher pieces of oat. I have also used normal oats like the kind you make porridge or oatmeal with, and it worked out fine too! 🙂
Got it, thanks!
