Peanut Butter Dog Treat Recipe

Updated May 22, 2018

In many families, the dogs are like children. Just like the family's children, dogs like to have little treats for rewards and snacks throughout the day. You could give your dog the well-known bone-shaped dog snack, but you may be feeding it fillers and other chemicals that your dog doesn't need. Make your own tasty dog treats made with peanut butter and other healthy ingredients instead. You'll know what you're feeding your pet and you'll save money as well.

Stir together the milk and peanut butter until it is a smooth mixture. Use the whisk to get the mixture incorporated and to smooth out the lumps.

Stir in the flour and baking powder. Use the spoon after the mixture gets too stiff for the whisk.

Turn out the mixture onto a floured board or table. Roll out the dough until it is 1/4 inch thick. Use a sharp knife to cut the dough into squares 1 inch across.

Spray a baking tray with cooking spray and place the cut-out cookies on the sheet. Place the pan in a 375 degree oven and bake for 18 to 20 minutes, or until the cookies begin to brown. Allow the treats to cool before feeding them to your dog.


Store these treats in an airtight container. For fancier cookies, use a bone-shaped cookie cutter.
