Peanut Butter Dog Treats



I usually groan every time I go to PetSmart and look at the price of the “good” dog treats. I mean, buying the “cheap” ones isn’t an option because my dog is a little king and is spoiled rotten. He should get the Snickers of doggie goodies, right? However, I thought it might be fun to try to make some homemade dog treats to see how Einstein likes them. I mean, why should my baking serve just the humans in the house? Einy should reap some benefits as well!

I was going to make some beef-flavored treats, but I thought that Einstein would enjoy peanut butter better since he DOES go crazy for some good PB. These were incredibly easy to make and even more fun since I found a dog-bone shaped cookie cutter in my big set! I ended up with almost 30 treats.

Peanut Butter Doggie Bones

2 cups whole-wheat flour
1 Tablespoon baking powder
1 cup natural peanut butter
1 cup low-fat milk

Preheat oven to 375 degrees. In a bowl, combine flour and baking powder. In another bowl, mix peanut butter and milk. Add wet mixture to dry, and mix well.

Turn out dough on a lightly floured surface and knead. Roll out to 1/4-inch thickness and cut out shapes. Place on a greased baking sheet and bake 20 minutes or until lightly brown. Cool on a rack and store in an airtight container.

The judge’s verdict:
“Can I PLEASE eat them ALL???”

    I keep wanting to make dog treats for my dog. I should try these this weekend!!

    awww!! they look so cute and yummy! i don’t have a bone cookie cutter, but i bet they’d taste just as good if i used my other cutters. einstein is such a handsome boy! i can’t wait to make some for murphy.

    That is SUCH a good idea. And that pic with your dog up on the counter looking at all the treats is seriously the CUTEST picture ever!! 🙂

    Einy is so flipping adorable I want to reach right through the screen and hug him and scratch his fluffly little ears. Oh and the treats are super cute too. Does he love them? I might have to make some for Cole soon.

  15. Lindsey on December 23, 2008 at 7:16 am

    Thanks so much for sharing this recipe! I made these over the weekend in Christmas shapes for my Aunt’s Pit Bull and German Shepard…I’m smiling imagining such big dogs eating such dainty little treats but I think she(aunt) will really get a ‘kick’ out of the whole thing. Thanks again for posting and Happy Holidays!


  16. coco's mom on March 25, 2009 at 7:24 pm

    I made the peanut butter doggie treats for my shi-tzu pup. She’ll be one on 3/28/09. She really loves them and I also made a batch for my cousins lab puppy.. great idea and good healthy treat!


  17. Jodie on October 14, 2009 at 10:13 pm

    Your dog is SOOOOOOO cute! I made this recipe except I added one 4 ounce single serving container of Mott’s original applesauce (which equals a half of a cup) and the “biscuits” turned out soft, which I liked them that way. The vet says applesauce is a good source of fiber for dogs. I put them in celophane bags and printed out a fold-over tag in a dog font that said:
    Doggie Peanut
    Butter Buddies
    INGREDIENTS: Made With LOTS of Love, Chunky Peanut Butter,
    Whole Wheat Flour, Baking Powder, Milk, and Applesauce

    Then I stapled it shut and gave them to all my “dog” friends. Needless to say, they all went nuts for them!!!!!!!


    • basketpam on April 12th, 2013 at 5:29 pm

      I definitely like your idea of adding the applesauce to the treats. What’s nice is that this now gives a choice of what the person wants to make and what the dogs wants to eat. My golden retriever Lucy has lots of doggy friends here at the retirement community my family owns and manages and almost all of her friends are so small compared to her they can’t handle the large hard biscuits she likes. I started well over a year ago keeping on hand here at the office the small, mini Milk Bone Treats for them. It also works nicely for Lucy too as she’s on a diet and that tiny milkbone at 5 calories is a good deal lighter than a big full-size Milk Bone treat. AND, I also deal with some of the humans that go with these dogs and some are EXTREMELY picky about what the doggies get and I know the humans would LOVE their dogs getting home made treats. One of Lucy’s friends, a poodle mix named Mona loves just about anything with sweet potatoes and she’s also allergic to any treat that has a colored dye in it. Honestly, sometimes I think many of these dogs have more eating problems than most people I know. Lucy herself has a sensitive tummy. On one of her birthdays I thought I would allow her a special “treat” and let her have just about 100% of a nice steak. All the humans were enjoying their steak dinners so I thought for one time that year I’ll let her eat more than just one or two bites. It was a big mistake and a complete waste of a good rib eye steak. An hour after eating the steak she became sick and the entire thing came back up. So much for that idea. It was just too rich for her and she’s not used to that much “table” food at one time. Other than pieces of white chicken, green beans or carrots served with her kibble she rarely gets ANY people food. I’m always trying to get more veggies or fruit into her as she is the dog version of a “meat and potato man” and normally won’t touch any fruit or veggies. It’s been a real struggle getting her to accept any at all in her food.

    AWWWWW! what an ADORABLE baby!!!!!!!!! Such a cutie pie! My baby scarlett (lab/shepherd) and I are making these cookies for her doggie relative Nellie for Christmas! We are using snowflake cookie cutters!!!!

    Hey, i heard baking powder is toxic to dogs


    • Kevin on February 6th, 2011 at 4:15 pm

      yes. baking powder is poisonous to dogs. it causes muscle spasms and in larger amounts causes heart failure. i dont really see why baking powder needs to be included in this recipe. with just milk, peanut butter and flour, the batter should be quite heavy and dense and unlikely to rise much anyway. even though its only a tablespoon and unlikely to cause damage to your pet, i would recommend not including baking powder in future batches or recipes for dogs.


      • Melissa on November 23rd, 2012 at 11:12 am

        I’d skin thr flour too. Grains really have no business being in dog food or treats.


      • Anonymous on August 18th, 2013 at 6:13 pm

        Baking powder in large amounts is toxic, not poisonous. Chocolate consumption in dogs is poisonous, meaning in any amount, it has the ability to kill a dog and is requires an emergency trip to the vet. However, baking powder in a recipe, especially in the tiny amount in the above recipe is not harmful.


      • Julee on December 25th, 2013 at 11:26 pm

        I too am skeptical of including any ingredient that may harm my dog such as leavening agents. I would substitute an egg or two. I live at 6000 feet altitude and I always cut way back on leavening when baking so I don’t think leaving out the leavening would be a problem here.


  20. a fan of anything chocolate on January 30, 2010 at 8:15 pm

    What a great recipe. I profess to be a non-dog lover but find myself knitting sweaters for my son and dil’s French bulldog and he is a huge fan of peanut butter. These look like they would suit him just fine!

    I made these treats over the weekend but modified the recipe some (took out the baking powder and added some other ingredients) and Rockwell (our Basset) loves them. Here is what I did…

    Peanut Butter Doggie Cookies

    2 cups whole-wheat flour
    1 cup natural peanut butter
    1 cup low-fat milk
    1/2 cup quick cooking oats
    1/2 cup applesauce
    1/4 cup carrot shreds chopped up
    1/4 cup cheddar cheese chopped up

    Mix all together. Place 1 teaspoon size balls on cookie sheet. Mash with fork (like you would a peanut butter cookie) Bake at 375 for 10-15 minutes. My dog likes his treats on the soft side so I took them out at about the ten minute mark.


    • Michelle on September 6th, 2011 at 7:28 pm

      Thanks so much for sharing your modified recipe! I am definitely going to make a batch of these for Einstein!


      • Maren on February 10th, 2012 at 3:57 pm

        Yes – I thought that baking powder was not good to give dogs. Thank you for sharing this modified recipe!!


      • Coley on July 18th, 2012 at 7:18 pm

        My vet said that wheat and dairy are also no-no’s for dogs.


        • Chelsea on December 14th, 2012 at 2:23 pm

          Wheat and dairy aren’t bad for dogs, simply common allergens for them. You could probably find a gluten-free flour substitute and for the dairy do rice milk (a lot of dogs are also allergic to soy products).


  27. Bronwyn on September 27, 2011 at 4:14 am

    Such a cool idea…. I finally found a dog-biscuit shaped cookie cutter at a bake shop, so will be making these the weekend!

    I’m glad I found your recipe, I have 3 dogs and I want to make this for them but I just have a question. Can you use regular flour or it has to be whole-wheat?


    • Michelle on November 6th, 2011 at 11:30 am

      Hi Maria, Yes you can use regular all-purpose flour, the whole wheat just makes them a little healthier 😉


  30. Kelly on November 7, 2011 at 9:57 pm

    Looks great!! how long do they stay fresh??


    • Michelle on November 10th, 2011 at 1:22 am

      Hi Kelly, I would say you could put them in the fridge and they’d last a couple of weeks.


  31. Jazzi on December 9, 2011 at 7:22 pm

    these sound really good. I will make some for my Jazzi. Feel free to drop by her blog and say Hi!! Lots of dogs on the blogs would be interested in receipes.

    Wow! I can’t wait to bake these for my sweet furry friend. I LOVE the photo of Einstein with the paws on the counter. No way my dog would have that much restraint. They would all be gone in the blink of an eye! I bought a doggy recipe book awhile back but have only made one item from the book because all the recipes are complicated. These look so easy and simple to make. My Samba says thanks to Einstein’s mom for these tips!

    Made These a couple of nights back. My Labrador just loves them! Wrapping up some for christmas for my family’s canine friends.

    Thanx this is awesome

    These are awesome! I have made them for my families dogs and ours too. My doggie tested these and LOVED them. Thank you for posting. Rosie(our puppy) is giving this as Christmas presents to her doggie cousins 🙂 I was able to make about 53 too! I did little Christmas trees for the holidays! Thanks again!


  36. Brena on December 25, 2011 at 11:11 am

    Just made these for my two girls for Christmas morning 🙂 They are both plotthound mixes. One is 16 months or so, the other is 3-5 years old (unknown as she was a rescue)

    I omitted the baking powder since it is considered toxic to doggies – Instead, I added 1/2 cup of applesauce, a teaspoon or so of water and an extra dash of milk.

    Both dogs love them!!!

    I baked them for about 10 minutes or so.

    Thanks for the recipe!!


  37. fran on December 29, 2011 at 11:03 pm

    I just made a batch for my pitbull Princess and as she always does she layed on the kitchen floor the whole time i was baking… she loved them 🙂
    I have a recipe for dog/cat treats
    2 cups whole wheat flour
    1/4 cup corn meal
    1/2 cup parmesan cheese
    1 egg
    1 cup water… mix all the ingredients together except parmesan cheese.
    knead dough until completely mixed, roll mixture into 3inch size pencil sticks
    roll the sticks into parmesan cheese twist sticks 3-4 times bake at 350 for 25 mins
    on a ungreased baking sheet.

    My vet told me that one of the best things to give my “children with paws” as treats are peanut butter on toast. Cheaper and MUCH MORE healthier than the store bought duck or chicken treats. This looks to be a great alternative and I can’t wait to try it!!!!!! BTW, if anyone has bought chicken treats, make sure they were not made in China…this made my dogs sick and when I researched it on the Internet, I discovered that this treat has been the blame for kidney failure and death in dogs.


  54. ciera on October 12, 2012 at 2:27 pm

    Best dog treat recipie I have tried yet. I have tried making these with and without baking powder and baking powder doesn’t seem to make much of a difference so if you’re worried it will harm your dog then don’t use it. I also added 4oz of applesauce with the recipie and only cooked them for 15 mins. They come out nice and soft and my chihuahua just loves them!


  55. Sarah on October 24, 2012 at 7:42 pm

    It has been brought up that baking powder is toxic for dogs.

    It bears mentioning that flour (gluten specifically) is not good for many dogs. I always substitute flour with brown rice flour or ground flax seed or coconut flour or any combination of the three. Gluten intolerance has been definitively diagnosed in the Irish Setter but not in many other breeds of dogs. Dogs, like humans and other animals, can develop a sensitivity or allergy to it gradually through repeat exposure or as an acute reaction to a single exposure. Gluten allergy causes the inflammation and destruction of the interior of the small intestine, thus preventing nutrients and vitamins from being properly absorbed. Moreover, gluten irritates the large intestine, causing colitis, which results in bowel problems.

  57. dog lover on November 3, 2012 at 12:19 pm

    Sorry to ruin your recipe again but milk gives your dog indigestion and baking powder is highly toxic.


    • Michelle on November 6th, 2012 at 2:18 pm

      It is my understanding that if raw, unbaked baking soda or powder is ingested by dogs it can cause problems, but that dogs eating something that has been baked with either leavening agent is not an issue.

      As for milk, same thing – you don’t want your dogs to drink milk or eat a bowl of ice cream or a hunk of cheese, but a small amount baked into a recipe isn’t going to cause problems unless the dog has an allergy.


  58. Cathy on November 6, 2012 at 6:11 pm

    Thanks for the peanut butter biscuit recipe. I’ve been making my own dog biscuits for about 10 years … each new variety has to be approved by my pooch!! Aside from the fact that my dog is my taste tester and is a bit spoiled by always having a supply of homemade biscuits on hand, I also make biscuits when there’s a new puppy in the family or for Christmas or other special occasions. There are many recipes online that you could also try (most include oatmeal, cornmeal, margarine or oil, wheat flour–which I mix with white flour–and bouillion–none of the recipes I’ve used contain baking soda. HINT: Keep baked biscuits in oven overnight to make crispy, crunchy biscuits.).

  67. Vickie on December 17, 2012 at 11:29 pm

    Don’t you think you should remove the baking powder from the recipe. I found your site through Pinterest. Most people aren’t going to read the comments that say baking powder is poisonous to dogs. I googled it and it is poisonous. Maybe the amount in these bones would not hurt most dogs, but it could cause illness in small dogs


    • Michelle on December 18th, 2012 at 5:58 pm

      Hi Vickie, Baking soda and powder are poisonous to dogs if swallowed in their raw state, in large quantities. A small amount that has been baked into a final product is not harmful. You can omit it from this recipe if you’d feel better about it.

    When making these gluten free I add 1/2 tsp of xanathum gum to each cup of rice flour to help the treats keep their depths. Our lab Gus just loves these treats.

    I just used your recipe for the first time and my Fur Kids love them!!! I doubled the recipe and managed to get 6 dozen cookies, now mind you I made small round cookies. This saves me a ton of money with 3 dogs and I love that I know exactly whats in them. I will never buy cookies again for my Fur Kids, thanks for sharing this great recipe!

    Wherever would you obtain everything information about
    dog treats ? I’m producing a good dissertation upon that will i am having difficulty discovering stuff on-line about it.

    If you could help me personally about this one i’d be much required

    Regards Belinda

    We don’t have a dog. I’m making these for my family. I may even make some with cocoa powder added. LOL

    I’ve been looking for some good recipes for dog treats. Thanks for sharing. Since we don’t feed our dogs wheat products, I’m going to figure out how to make them Gluten free…if at all possible.


  96. Crystal on September 27, 2013 at 12:55 pm

    can you use anything else as a substitute for peanut butter?


    • Michelle on October 3rd, 2013 at 12:48 pm

      Hi Crystal, Any other type of nut butter that is okay for your dog should work fine.

    Can you use whole wheat pastry flour instead?


    • Michelle on December 5th, 2013 at 5:20 pm

      Hi Ellen, I think that would be fine; it might result in a finer texture.

    I’m so glad to come across these and I will make them, but it’s the dog that caught my eye. Is Einstein a Golden Doodle because he looks like my Schnitzel? 🙂


    • Michelle on February 15th, 2014 at 9:12 pm

      Hi Cindy, Einstein is a full-bred Golden Retriever 🙂

    If baking powder is toxic to dogs then can we substitute it with a spoonful of natural yoghurt and let the dough rise a little before rolling out the cookies for baking, would it work ?


    • Michelle on May 20th, 2014 at 10:22 am

      Hi Nirmala, I would just omit it, no need to try to let it rise due to yogurt.


  106. moniek on May 31, 2014 at 3:26 pm

    I just made these for my dog, for her birthday she has a weak stomach and these biscuits work for her, thank you for the recipe, my cat stole one and loved it to.


  107. Jan on December 22, 2014 at 10:38 pm

    what type of peanut butter do you use? Fresh ground nAtural or a jarred version


    • Michelle on December 24th, 2014 at 12:25 pm

      Hi Jan, A regular jarred peanut butter (like Skippy or JIF) – natural peanut butter has too much oil for baking recipe.


  108. Lulu on January 15, 2015 at 2:21 pm

    Is creamy peanut butter ok?

    Please tell me how to get the gluten flour to form a “ball” to roll. It is alway a sticky gooey mess! I am using Namaste Gluten Free Blend.


  113. goggly on July 24, 2015 at 10:36 pm

    Plastic pet bowls, ceramic dog bowls and pet dog water fountains from
    Drinkwell, Durapet, Petco and many more canine accessory suppliers.

    This seems like a well thought out recipe, but all of you should know that wheat is one of the number one causes of allergic reaction in dogs and cats. They can’t digest wheat or corn as well as humans can. Wheat is very cheap for the manufacturer which allows them to use less real meat in their dog foods. I would personally recommend a wheat free dog treat option, or substitute wheat flour with other flours, such as; garbanzo bean flour, potato flour, rice flour, ect.

    I made these today and they came out perfectly – exactly as pictured. My little dachshund loved them – sharing with friends too! Can add this recipe to my holiday turkey and sweet potatoe treats!! I like making my own treats – and they are really easy! Thanks for the recipe!

    Mad these at ten years old for my sick dog Marshmellow. She loved them, and so did my other dog Moutain girl. This is also a good recipe because the ingredients are stuff you can find around the house!
