Homemade Peanut Butter Cookie Dog Treat Recipe

We had a fun day today because my Lady made us some of them tasty peanut butter dog cookies! We sure do love this easy-to-make Homemade Peanut Butter Cookie Dog Treat Recipe!

Seeing as to how I don’t know what concoction goes in them, I’ll let my Lady tell you how to make them.

Homemade Peanut Butter Cookie Dog Treat Recipe

Here’s what my Lady says about them…

Dog treats are fun to make, and of course, your pooch will love them – but you have to make sure you’re using ingredients that are safe for their tummies.

Some dogs are more sensitive than others, so sometimes it’s trial and error, but knowing and following “safe” recipes is always your best bet.

Can dogs eat peanut butter?

Yes, dogs can eat peanut butter. Peanut butter is a popular snack for many dogs, as it is high in protein and healthy fats.

It is also a popular ingredient in dog cookies and treats.

It also has vitamins B and E which are important to a dog’s health.

However, it’s important to be aware that peanut butter contains a high sugar content, so moderation should be practiced when giving it to your dog.

Avoid feeding them any brands of peanut butter which contain artificial sweeteners or added sugar, as these are not good for their health.

Moreover, Xylitol is an artificial sweetener found in some commercial peanut butter.

This additive is extremely toxic for dogs and should be avoided at all costs.

And, if your dogs love these peanut butter dog cookies, then be sure and try our VERY favorite Oatmeal, Peanut Butter & Banana Dog Treats Recipe!

It has been a favorite for ALL our dog friends!

Less is more when it comes to baking your own pup treats, so I’ve combined 3 simple ingredients (plus hot water) to make these delicious Peanut Butter Cookie Dog Treats.

These treats keep well in the refrigerator for at least a week.

Most importantly, these peanut butter cookies for dogs are sure to be a hit with your pup!

Homemade Peanut Butter Cookie Dog Treat Recipe

Ingredients:

2 cups whole wheat flour
1 cup oats
1/2 cup peanut butter (no XYLITOL)
1 1/4 cups hot water

Homemade Peanut Butter Cookie Dog Treat Recipe

Preheat oven to 350*F.

Combine all ingredients in your mixing bowl. It’s important that you use hot – not cold – water, so don’t skimp on this step.

You will want to stir your dough with a spoon or spatula at first, but it will eventually get to a point that you can knead it like bread dough. Eventually, it will all roll up into a ball.

Flatten dough on the counter, either with your hands or a rolling pin. If the dough is sticky, add a little more flour. I did not have any issues with the dough sticking to the counter, but there are many variables (like house temperature, altitude, measuring devices, etc), so don’t fret if yours does.

Roll dough into 1 inch balls and place on a greased cookie sheet. You can use cooking spray or a healthy oil of your choice to prepare the cookie sheet.

Bake at 350*F for about 15 minutes. Your pup can actually eat this dough raw, so don’t worry about undercooking. However, if you overcook the treats, they will be dry and crumbly.

Once dough balls are on cookie sheet, flatten criss-cross style with a fork (like you do with peanut butter cookies for humans).

This recipe for homemade dog cookies will make a few dozen cookies. All ingredients are safe for human consumption.

NOTE: Store in the refrigerator OR alternatively, you can freeze part of the dough to bake later 🙂
