Author Henrietta Morrison knows a thing or two about fussy pets from her own dog, Lily, who was plagued by earaches and skin problems until Morrison started cooking for her and the symptoms disappeared. Dinner for Dogs (The Experiment, 2012) is her answer to these problems, and more. Morrison offers 50 simple, nutritious recipes for a happier, healthier dog—at any age. This Peanut Butter Dog Treat recipe is a gluten-free alternative to traditional dog treats.

Despite having the word wheat in it, buckwheat flour is in fact gluten-free and has a sweet, nutty taste. Peanut butter is a palatable fat to add if you have a finicky dog and want an alternative to animal fat. It also has a substantial level of protein.
