Peanut Butter Dog Biscuits

Prep 10 mins

I have 5 animals. 1 dog that thinks he is a cat and 4 cats that think they are people. I know, I know — this sounds absolutely excessive. It probably is, but each one of them has shown up needing a home and Jorge and I are helpless to turn them away.  We are big old softies when it comes to adorable fuzzy faces.

While everyone on instagram  (@thenovicechef) gets to enjoy their cuteness on a sometimes daily basis, I rarely share their darling little faces here on the blog. So this week when I made Brody a new batch of puppy treats for the 500th time, I decided it was time to share his favorite treat.

Brody is a huge peanut butter fan and like his mama, loves everything more if it’s coated in sprinkles. That may not be true, but thankfully he can’t tell me that it isn’t.

These treats are really easy to make and it’s nice knowing everything that goes into his treats is something I myself would eat. Plus, they are super fun to decorate for Christmas and give to all of his puppy friends. …yes, I am that person that gives homemade puppy treats to friends who have dogs. Just wait till I have actual kids, it will only be amplified. 😉

Yield: 24 medium bones

Ingredients

  • 1 cup crunchy peanut butter
  • 1 large egg
  • 1/4 cup honey
  • 1 cup old fashioned oats
  • 2 cups whole wheat flour
  • 1/3 cup vegetable oil
  • 1/3 cup water

  • sprinkles

Instructions

  1. Preheat oven to 350°F. Line cookie sheets with parchment paper, set aside.
  2. In a stand mixer, combine all ingredients (peanut butter, egg, honey, oats, flour, oil and water), beating until a stiff dough forms.
  3. Pat out dough into a rectangle, about 1 inch in depth. Using a bone shaped cookie cutter, cut into bones. Use all dough.
  4. Bake for 30 minutes, flipping half way through. Transfer to a wire rack and let cool completely.
  5. To Dip/Decorate: Melt almond bark and oil in the microwave, stirring every 30 seconds. Once melted/smooth, dip half of bone into almond bark and lay on parchment paper. Decorate with sprinkles or chopped peanuts and let cool completely.
  6. Store in an airtight container for up to 2 weeks.

I have this set of bone cookie cutters and used the medium size for these biscuits.

    does it have to be wheat flour? What about all purpose flour? I have a sick fur baby dying from Cushings Disease and I would like to make these for her

    1. Jessica

      You can use all purpose, wheat flour is just healthier with the added benefits from the whole wheat (like fiber). I’m so sorry to hear about your pup, thank you for loving her so much and giving her a wonderful home!

    Anyone making this recipe or others with peanut butter, please make sure your peanut butter doesn’t contain Xylitol!

    ‘Xylitol, a sweetener used in many foods, including peanut butter, yogurt, toothpaste and chewing gum, is safe for humans but potentially deadly for dogs. If ingested, it can cause seizures, liver failure and death, warned one animal hospital, which called xylitol “extremely toxic” to dogs’

  3. Valerie Ferrara-Ryan

    these look great but what can you use instead of wheat flour? Would almond flour or coconut flour work

  4. Susan

    Im concerned about the peanut butter?

    I know dogs are not supposed to eat nuts because they dont digest them so why using crunchy peanut butter. Wouldnt it be better to use creamy peanut butter and safer. Unless instead of using mixer i have to use my blender and blend the nuts down?

  5. Kim Ephlin

    Seriously love this recipe! I made this as Christmas gifts to all of the dogs in each family. I put them in Mason jars and put a tag with each dog’s name. It was a huge hit. My chocolate lab, Levi, loves them!

  6. Shelley

    I am excited to try this recipe. I am interested in giving as gifts and making ahead of time. The instructions said store for 2 weeks. Any helpful tips on baking, decorating and freezing? I always run into the problem of the icing cracking. Thanks in advance

  7. Debbie

    Just made theses but I just pressed into 9×13 pan and sliced when it came out of the oven. I only had self rising flour so hopefully that won’t matter. I can’t wait for them to cool to give to my doggies. Thanks for the recipe!

  8. Elisabeth Blagg

    A friend made these & gave to my 5 rescues as a treat. They look & smell pleasing to humans as well as the puppettes!! My 5 love, love, loves them! She gave me this link to the recipe so I can make some myself & how wonderful is it that it contains normal everyday ingredients we already have on our pantry shelves! Thank you, Auntie Ashley & The Novice Chef!!!

  9. Angela

    I made these as Christmas gifts for all of the dog lovers in my family. All of my parents dogs love them, and I can’t wait to give them out. Thank you so much for sharing your recipe!

    My pup was just diagnosed with Blastomycosis yesterday and I wanted to figure out a better diet for her. I took her off store bought treats and decided to start making my own. These were the first I tried and they turned out AMAZING! I did them without the icing this go around but that didn’t stop her from devouring them! Because she’s been ill, her appetite has been lacking, but she gobbled these right up. My husband also tried them and loved them lol! I’ve also decided to make several batches for the Holiday’s and give them as gifts. Great recipe, easy to follow, and so good! Thank you!

    1. Jessica

      Oh I’m so glad to hear that Taylor. What a poor pup! I hope you can figure out a good diet for her soon and she starts feeling better!

  11. Rachel McLanahan

    Made these and substituted ground oatmeal (I did it myself in our Ninja blender) for the flour and used applesauce in place of the oil. Our Jack~Jacked LOVED them! I will def be making these for his 4~legged friends in the future!!!

    Thanks for the Great recipe!!!!

    Hello! I made these and unfortunately they turned out quite a bit darker than yours. I followed the recipe to a T and even only cooked them 20 minutes since when I went to flip them at 15 min the bottoms were almost burnt. I managed to save them by dipping the crisped bottoms rather than the halves & my dog still loves them but I thought I’d see if you have any advice so they come out better next time. Thanks!

    1. Jessica

      Hi Kerri!

      I wonder if they were a little too thin? That is the only reason I can imagine them browning so fast. I made another bath just last month and had no issues.

      My best suggestion is just to watch them and flip them as soon as they are starting to brown. 😉

  13. Anna

    You can avoid giving your dog stomach problems with the wheat by swapping it with either instant oats or a finer milled oat. I wouldn’t recommend any dog product with wheat in it.

    1. Ronnie

      Hello, I was trying to figure out what type of flour I could replace the wheat flour with. Our Golden Retriever, Ozzy, is allergic to wheat. (Chicken also.)
      Could any type of flour replace the wheat and still have the biscuits turn out ok? Rice flour? Or ?

  14. Kristen

    Love this!!! My dog is not big on treats but he LOVES these!!!! Thanks so much for sharing 🙂 <3 Kristen and Tye

  15. alexandra @ sweet betweens [blog]

    I’ll have to add these in to our regular rotation of blueberry + pumpkin! Rosey + Ramble will definitely devour these – and I can’t get over the addition of the almond bark + sprinkles!

  16. Tina {My Life as a Mrs}

    oh my gosh… i freaking LOVE it. Brody and Maddie are so gonna be BFF’s when they finally meet (he is totally invited to come visit too! 😉 ) – these are adorable by the way… my dogs are jealous so I should go make some now!

  17. Trudi

    your dog is so cute! I have a Newfoundland, so I think I’ll have to make a bigger size bone shape!! I can’t wait to make these for him!

  18. Heather of Kitchen Concoctions

    I’ve made treats for my dog, Mojo, before (and to give as gifts to my dog loving friends), but should do so more often, since they really are so easy and way cheaper and healthier than store bought. So far Mojo’s favorites (haha! like he really has a favorite, he eats anything!) are a Peanut Butter Pumpkin variety!

  19. Felia

    These pictures are adorable, I can’t take my eyes off your sweet dog! The recipe really gets subsidiary. 🙂

  20. Manderley

    Brody is absolutely adorable, so cute, I love him. I love animals. I have two cats and one of them thinks it’s my baby 🙂

    This biscuits are yum!

    You just became Huck’s best friend. He loves the “Pea-Mutt” butter treats – but has grown tired of my banana ones. Time for mom to switch it up for the fur baby 🙂

  22. Laura R

    Is the almond bark ok for the dogs? I know chocolate is not good for them and I use the carob chips for my dogs treats.

    1. Jessica

      Yup, Almond Bark is perfectly safe. The ingredients are: Sugar, Palm Kernel Oil, Whey Powder, Soy Lecithin and Artificial Flavor.

      They shouldn’t eat a ton of it since it is fattening, but neither should we. It’s perfectly safe for them. 🙂
