Peanut Butter Dog Treats

Your furry friend deserves some good home cooking every once in a while! These perfect peanut butter dog treats are super easy to make and all the ingredients are probably already stocked in your pantry.

Peanut Butter Dog Biscuits
(Makes 30 - 3 inch bones)

2 cups Whole Wheat Flour

1 Tbsp baking powder
1 cup smooth peanut butter
1 cup milk
1/2 cup oatmeal



  1. Preheat your oven to 375 degrees and lightly grease your baking pan.

  2. In a large bowl, mix the flour, baking powder and oatmeal. Once mixed, add the peanut butter and milk. Combine with hands until dough forms.

  3. Put your dough onto a lightly floured surface, knead  and then roll out until 1/4″ thick. Use a bone-shaped cookie cutter or any cookie cutter to cut the dough into the desired size and shape.

  4. Bake on lightly greased baking pan (or lined with parchment paper) for about 20 minutes or until golden brown.

  5. Cool completely. Be sure to store in an airtight jar or ziplock bag.

Can't wait to make these. Would be easier to make these than the treats I give my boys now. They love those tiny carrots which I dip in peanut butter sometimes. They also love the yam french fries I make. (sliced like FF and baked over night in 300 oven) and these I sometimes dip in PB too for them. Now to make a few of these but have to be small since they're together 11 pounds, lol. Was told mushrooms would kill my little one, well since he was 5 months old and is now over 4 years he's eaten a mushroom piece or two when I'm making my salad and np. Also was told to never let them have strawberries, blueberries, bananas, watermelon,or pineapple. Shoot I've been making most of these as dehydrated treats forever and they love them and are fine. Anything in LARGE amounts can make them ill just as it can us. If I wasn't concerned about their teeth my boys would be happy being total vegetarians. As it is I will have to find a substitute for that wheat flour as I don't give them wheat or corn, their kibble is made here in USA and none in it either, rice flour yes.

If chocolate was poison, my boxer would have died long ago. I didn't give it to him on purpose, he snatched a pound of the table that was for Christmas gifts. We only looked away for a second. I thought it just made them ill. Didn't hurt him a bit though.

Do you have to use whole wheat flour or is regular flour alright?

Just a heads up for dog owners who give their dogs peanut butter treats -- please be careful when your dogs are out and about around children. My son is allergic to peanuts and twice he had had allergic reactions because dogs licked him in public places, and we found out later that they'd eaten peanut butter treats earlier in the day. Allergic kids can have deadly reactions even to being kissed by people who have eaten peanut butter. I've never seen any warnings for parents of allergic kids about this and our doctors didn't tell us. We thought at first that our son was suddenly allergic to dogs because a friend's dog licked his face and he got an instant rash there that raised up and got fiery red and then his nose started running. He had exposure to plenty of other dogs, though, so we were left clueless and just avoided going to that friend's house again. It happened again about a year later with another dog. The dog gave him a kiss and he broke out in hives. It was terrifying, since you never know which reaction is going to be the one to be anaphylactic and swell his throat shut. Our friend whose dog caused the first reaction finally called and said she gave her dogs peanut butter treats and she wondered if that could be it, and we later confirmed the other dog had too. Now my son asks "Does your dog eat peanut butter treats?" before he goes near a dog, but I wonder how many peanut allergic kids don't know to ask, since I've never seen a warning to parents about it. I just figured I'd mention it for those who have peanut allergic kids in their lives or whose dogs are frequently playing with kids in the park. I think around 1-2% of kids are now peanut allergic and it's one of the most deadly allergies, so it's something to keep in mind, especially if you have kids who are sometimes around your dogs who have peanut allergies.

Dogs can have dairy. I give my dogs cheese all the time and, milk bones. Some dogs are lactose intolerant like some people are but just like people, most are fine with dairy.
