Peanut Butter Dog Treat Balls
These peanut butter dog treat balls are super quick and healthy too. Made with veggies, peanut butter and Spelt Flour these can work for dogs with wheat allergies.
If you’re not familiar with spelt flour, it’s a whole grain grown in the Middle East for over 500 years and recently gaining in popularity in the U.S.
Spelt is high in fiber and may help prevent gallstones.
This dog treat recipe will take you less than 15 minutes to prepare.
Plus, because they have a 1/4 cup of flaxseeds, they're packed with omega 3’s which are necessary for joint and brain health. They're also good for the coat because omega 3's are essential fatty acids which keep your pet's coat soft and shiny.
2 cups Spelt flour
¼ cup flaxseeds*
1 cup mixed veggies (cooked—they can be canned, frozen or fresh)
½ c. water
3 Tbls. Peanut butter
Put the flour and flaxseeds into a food processor and pulse for few seconds to mix. Add the veggies, water, egg and peanut butter and blend.
The mixture will be a little crumbly. Spoon it out and roll into balls between your hands (like making meatballs).
Place on a cookie sheet and bake at 375 degrees for 20 minutes. Let cool and feed to your dogs.
Makes approximately 42 treats.

The flaxseeds act as a natural preservative so they will stay fresh at room temperature up to a week. Otherwise, freeze or refrigerate.
*Flaxseeds are packed with healthy omega 3’s. Omega 3’s are great for your heart, eyes, brain, joints and just about anything else you can think of.
This is not suitable for dogs who can’t eat gluten. Spelt still has gluten in it. Yet, many people with wheat sensitivities report they're able to eat spelt.
