Step 7: add the air fryer

Line the bottom of your air fryer with parchment paper and place as many treats as you can, in the bottom, without them touching. I was able to fit 6-7 at a time in my particular air fryer.

What peanut butter should I use to make dog treats?

You need to be sure that you’re using natural peanut butter and that it has NO xylitol in it and no added sugar.

Can I make these treats crispy?

You can. If you want them to have a crunch, just increase the cooking time by 3 minutes. Just watch so that they don’t burn.

How do I store homemade dog treats?

Store the treats in an airtight container and keep them in the fridge for the best results.

What is the difference between canned pumpkin and puree?

You need to be sure that the pumpkin that you’re buying is actually pumpkin! Sometimes pumpkin in a can isn’t even pumpkin at all – but squash.
