Homemade Dog Biscuits

Another baked good trial this weekend that was a hit with my furry children! My friend Nina and I share dog tricks, treats and our favorite dog products all the time, and she is posting a dog treat today too! I knew that once I made these easy treats I would need to do a post about them as well.

Homemade Dog Biscuits

I found the original pin here, and made them this weekend, it made over 50 cookies, which is great and will last my little crazies quite a while. I have read and heard a lot of things about how dog treats are making dogs sick that aren’t made in America, and I do want to buy ‘good’ dog treats for our dogs, but the vegan, organic ones are pretty expensive at the store. I had a ton of peanut butter and oats laying around at home. I picked up some whole wheat flour at Sprouts by Bob’s Red Mill. It’s a large bag but will last me a while!

They are really easy to make and instead of rolled oats, I used quick oats and don’t know if there’s a difference. I also used hot water from a tea kettle, which I think might have been too hot, instead I would just use warm tap water. The tea kettle water made the peanut butter even more sticky.

Peanut Butter Dog Treats

  • 2 cups whole wheat flour (+ extra for rolling it out to make shapes)
  • 1 cup rolled oats
  • 1/3 cup peanut butter (I also melted mine)
  • 1 1/4 cups hot water
  • Pre-Heat Oven to 350 degrees.
  • In a large bowl, whisk together all the dry ingredients. Add water and peanut butter. Gently combine the wet ingredients to the dry ingredients.
  • Knead with your hands until you have a ball of dough.

  • Take a rolling pin and flatten out the dough. These are just like regular cookies and will stick to your rolling pin and also the surface you’re rolling it out on. I made sure to use more whole wheat flour to keep it from sticking.
  • Use a cookie cutter to cut out fun shapes.
  • Lay aluminum foil down on your baking sheet and and place your cookies on top of the foil.
  • Bake for 30 minutes, or until golden. If you want the dog treats to be softer, take them out 10 minutes earlier. (I baked 3 sheets of cookies, one at 20 minutes, one at 25 and one at 30. The 20 minute ones are the best, the thirty minute ones are really crumbly and the dogs have to do more chewing… which just results in a mess I have to clean up)

Make sure they are cooled before feeding to your favorite pup! I put them in their treat container and I think they will last a long time as long as they are in an airtight container. I wouldn’t leave them out as they do harden. Since there is nothing in the cookie that will ‘go bad’ I hope they stay good for a while!

George and Sophie send their love!

    This is awesome. Homemade treats! I swear, we spend more on dog treats and toys and food for Cabo than we do on ourselves (okay, that’s kind of an exaggeration, but still.). I love the mustache cookie cutter! Where’d you buy it?

    I freeze some of my home made treats. I only have one dog and don’t go through them as quickly. The peanut butter keeps them moist and that can mold over time. They are great out of the freezer. So says Roxy :)

    Love these! There are so many great homemade dog treat recipes on Pinterest, but I never manage to actually make them. Our puppers has a mustache collar so these would be perfect for him! :)
