How many treats does this recipe make?

This keto dog treats recipe makes one dozen treats. This will really depend on the mold you use for the dog treats. A smaller mold will make more treats. A larger one will make fewer treats.

What type of peanut butter should I use?

It’s very important that you choose a peanut butter that is safe for dogs and contains NO xylitol. Xylitol is toxic to dogs. Look carefully at the ingredients to be sure yours is safe. My preferred brand is this one. It is all-natural and perfectly safe for dogs. If you prefer, you can use almond butter instead of peanut butter Just take a look at the ingredients first.

Store these keto dog treats in an airtight container in the refrigerator. Coconut oil is liquid at about 78F so they will melt if you leave them at room temperature. The treats will last for up to a week stored properly. Let your dog enjoy one or two a day.
