They’re healthy and safe for dogs just as they’re also human foods. Some other human foods are usually fed to dogs as well.
However, we should sound this note of warning here.
While peanut butter and other ingredients in these recipes are high in fats, much fats in a dog’s diet could cause stomach upset.
Therefore, too much peanut butter can cause diarrhea and some other digestive problems and make dogs start vomiting.
Dogs digest protein better than fats and should be fed most with red protein.
