I created this recipe to run a fundraiser with my best friend and local consignment shop owner for a local nonprofit animal shelter that is trying to buy it's building they're currently in. It's going to be sold, and they're trying to reach the $75k mark for a down payment. The last I checked they have raised a little over $26k.

So for our fundraiser, we sold little bone cookie cutters with the recipe attached to it and had all of the funds go to Super Heroes In Ripped Jeans. On the weekends I would make up a batch of dog bones to give away.

  • peanut butter - Natural creamy peanut butter is ideal. Be sure to check the label to make sure it does NOT contain artificial sweeteners such as xylitol.
  • eggs - large eggs!
  • whole wheat flour - I highly recommend whole wheat flour, but all-purpose flour will do in a pinch.
  • water - If you want more flavor, use a broth instead of water. Beef broth, chicken broth, or turkey broth would work.

How to make Peanut Butter Dog Treats

I love making homemade dog treats because they're so easy and the dogs always go crazy for them.

  • Preheat oven to 350 degrees.
  • Add in the peanut butter and eggs in a bowl and mix.
  • Add in the whole wheat flour and water and beat until dough ball forms.
  • Dust your work surface with whole wheat flour and roll the dough out.

  • Press holes into the cookie using a fork or a skewer.
  • Bake until the edges are golden brown.

Peanut Butter Coconut Oil Drizzle

Each homemade peanut butter dog treat is topped with a peanut butter coconut oil drizzle. The drizzle won't be firm unless it's stored in the freezer or fridge.  So if you're keeping them at room temperature, consider leaving the drizzle off.

To make the drizzle, add the peanut butter and coconut oil in a small bowl. Microwave for about 30 seconds and stir. You'll want a consistency that holds its shape, but also is able to drizzle. If you find my measurements didn't do exactly that for you because there may be different consistencies in the peanut butter or coconut oil you use, try adding more peanut butter to thicken up the drizzle or more coconut oil to thin it out.

Grab a spoon or add the drizzle to a sandwich bag and cut a small hole in the corner of the bag. Place the dog bones on wax paper and quickly move the bag or spoon back and forth over the peanut butter dog treats.

Can you freeze peanut butter dog treats? Yes! They'll get soft and have a short life if you keep them at room temperature. I recommend freezing them and giving them to the dog still frozen.

What kind of peanut butter is safe for dogs? Peanut butter that doesn't contain artificial sweeteners such as xylitol. Always check the labels regardless of which kind you buy.

Can you use regular flour for dog treats? Yes!

How do you store homemade dog treats? You can store them in an airtight container for 3 to 4 days or in the freezer for 2 to 3 months.

Ingredients
 
 

Dog Treats

  • 1 cup creamy peanut butter
  • 2 large eggs
  • 2 ½ cups whole wheat flour
  • ¾ cup water

Drizzle

  • ¼ cup creamy peanut butter
  • 1 ½ tablespoons coconut oil

Instructions

Dog Treats

  • Preheat oven to 350 degrees. Line a cookie sheet with parchment paper.
  • In a large mixing bowl, add in the peanut butter and eggs. Beat with hand mixer until combined.
  • Add in the whole wheat flour and water and beat until the dough forms a ball.
  • Dust your work surface with whole wheat flour.
  • Roll the dough out to a ¼-inch thickness.
  • Cut out with the cookie cutter and place an inch apart on the prepared cookie sheet. They won't spread.
  • Press holes into the cookie using a fork or a skewer.
  • Bake for 18 minutes or until the edges are golden brown. This will depend on the size of your cookie cutter. Mine was 3 ¼-inch long.
  • Store in an airtight container. The cookies freeze well after being baked and will last up to 3 months in the freezer.

Drizzle

  • In a small microwave-safe bowl, add in the peanut butter and coconut oil. Microwave for 30 seconds and stir to combine. It should be a runny consistency but be thick enough that it doesn't thin out and not hold its shape.
  • Lay the dog bones out on wax paper.
  • Use a spoon or add the drizzle to the sandwich bag and cut a small hole in the corner, drizzle the glaze over top of each dog treat.

Notes

Make sure the peanut butter does NOT contain artificial sweeteners such as xylitol. I prefer using natural creamy peanut butter.
Substitute the water for a (chicken, beef, turkey) broth to add more flavor.

  1. I did 2x the recipe and replaced the whole wheat flour with oat flour and had to use another cup or so of flour but I ended up getting 180+ ~1inch treats. My dog loves it! 5⭐️4 stars

  2. 5 Star!
    Easy and my dogs love them! I use natural peanut butter so there is no sugar or additives. I also make small biscuits so I can treat my fur babies more often. Makes about 130 treats.4 stars

  3. Can you replace the wheat flour with oat or rice flour due to wheat flour not generally good for dogs, especially with sensitive stomachs. And cand I used mashed sweet potatoes instead of peanutbutter?

    1. You are welcome to change up the ingredients to what works for your dog. Just know the texture of the end results might vary just a bit.

    1. You could easily use chunky peanut butter. Just know that the texture of the treats will vary a bit, but they will bake up the same.
