Peanut Butter Dog Treats

I am embarrassed to say that I have not made this peanut butter dog treat recipe in years.  But while I was in Arizona, dog sitting for my sister, I decided to pull the recipe out of the archive file.

This recipe comes from one of my college BFF’s, Buffy.  Buffy was the first person I knew who had an eBay store (many, many years ago).  This was one of the recipes from her homemade dog treat business.  Now I don’t want to say that she started the whole ‘gourmet dog treat’ phenomenon…but she might have!

As you can see, Casey and Cooper are quite taken with these treats.  My guess is that your dogs will be too!

Peanut Butter Dog Treats

1 cup whole wheat flour
1 1/2 teaspoons baking powder
1/2 cup peanut butter
1 Tablespoon honey
1/2 cup hot water

1. Preheat oven to 375°F.
2. Mix flour and baking powder together in a small bowl.
3. In a separate bowl, wisk the peanut butter, honey, and hot water until smooth. Gradually add the dry mixture and mix well.  Note: Add a little more water if the dough is too dry or flour if it is too wet.
4. Turn dough out onto a lightly floured work surface and roll to 1/4″ thickness.
5. Cut with a cookie cutter and place on a non-stick cookie sheet.
6. Bake for 20 minutes or until lightly brown.  Let cool, then store in an airtight container for up to 1 week.

    I love this recipe and will have to copy it down. (er, I mean print it on my printer!) I have always made my dog his own treats, so adding this to the list of recipes would be great. I love that there is no oil in it. And my dog LOVES PB so much. Followed you from SITS sharefest. Have a blessed day!

      My dogs come running each time I open a jar of peanut butter!

      Thanks Kimberly! I am an avid reader of your blog where I learn so many new things about my dogs!

    Yum! I’m sure my dogs will love these. I’m buying them at the store now – but I’m going to make my babies some cookies!
    I found you today at the 3/8 Creat and Inspire Linky. I hope you get a change to stop by my blog and leave a comment, too!

    This sounds like a great treat! Our dog, Splotchy, loves
    when I make her homemade treats.

      I love the name ‘Splotchy!’

    Can these be frozen to keep the freshness?

    Hi Carina, the treats can absolutely be frozen!

    Could you use regular white flour instead? (It’s all I have on hand right now) I’m hoping to make these for our Megazord. She’s spoiled, and it could help us cut back on spending on her.

      My understanding is that white flour is not good for dogs, but I do not know for certain that this is true…sorry!

    My dogs LOVE peanut butter. And treats! I’m so making these for them and pinning the recipe so I don’t forget! I also see this as a potential blog post idea for my site (with proper credit of course :) )

    So glad I found you from the SITS Spring Fling!

    I bet my dogs will love this!

    I followed the sweet potato treat directions but they cam out a little over done. Can you recommend anything? I lowered the temp on the oven the second 1/2. Not too familiar with the oven in my new place. It’s separate from my glasstop

    Thank you

      Hi Shannon, I also noticed that often the second side will cook quite fast. I just keep an eye on them and pull them out when they are done. Also, my dogs like the burnt ones as much as the non-burnt treats!

    I just made these for my dog, and she loved them! I added a couple blueberries to each one too. The recipe made way too many for her to eat before they go bad so I’m thinking about sharing them with friends who have dogs as well.

    • Corinna August 18, 2014 at 7:38 pm #

      The blueberries are a great idea!

    my dog has a wheat allergy .. can I substitute oat flour instead>

    in my opinion, it may be best if you set your oven temp to 300 – 325 max. Otherwise you will burn them in 20 min. I kept a very close eye and they still burned on the bottom. Abbie loved them anyway. Next go around I’m adding a little applesauce!
