Whole Wheat Peanut Butter Dog Biscuits

We aim to please and are therefore, providing a recipe for your four-legged friends! The other night, my son and I were talking about what we could make next for the blog and at that moment, our new puppy charged into the room and slid into her bowl of food (empty because she had already eaten). Dog biscuits, I thought!

Our inspiration - Kugel the Poodle

I searched the web for some recipes – there are so many on there to choose from – but this one came up on at least 5 different sites so we thought it must be good. I don’t remember all the sites we checked, but I do remember that one of them was the Brown Eyed Baker’s site (since I love that site), so that is the reference I am providing.

We whipped these up in no time at all – and the puppy loves them. It’s also much less expensive to make your own treats, rather than buying some from the pet store.

Here is the recipe.

Peanut Butter Dog Biscuits
2 cups whole-wheat flour
1 tbsp baking powder
1 cup peanut butter
1 cup skim milk

Preheat oven to 375 degrees F. 

In a bowl, cream together the peanut butter and milk. 
Then add the flour and baking powder. Mix well. 



Turn out dough on a lightly floured surface and knead a couple of times and then form it into a nice round lump. Roll out to 1/4-inch thickness and cut out shapes.

Place on a parchment-lined baking sheet and bake 20 minutes or until lightly brown (they took 15 minutes in our oven – we cooked them at 350 degrees F on ‘convect’). Cool on a rack and store in an airtight container.

Makes about 20-30 dog biscuits, depending on which shape cookie cutter you use.

She loves them!
